Futons, having the ability to transform itself from a couch to a bed, reduce the need to purchase extra (and in many cases, needless) furniture. Futons also need far less flipping than standard bed mattresses. And even when you do need to flip a futon mattress, they are lighter, and easier to do. This feature also makes futons a breeze to clean. These convenience factors are the main reasons why so many homes are opting to include a futon in their house. Not just for convenience, the futon has many health benefits as well. Did you know that futons are great for your back? Most futons are constructed with slats, and a cotton mattress, usually 3 - 6 inches thick. This causes the futon mattress to be slightly firmer than a standard bed mattress.
For natural fiber mixes of the futon, wooden bases compliment it the best. Though there are metal frames also available, wood frames have more options to offer with variety in designs, color and different structures to suit your home interiors. There are futon beds with storage space options as well, which can be of good advantage to small living space. The best way to make your living room livelier is by covering the futon with attractive mattress covers. They can be further accessorized with cushions and small pillows which are great sofa bed add-ons. The covers can be easily changed when you want to use the futon as bed in the night. The only reason why mission style futons are so popular for modern home furniture is their versatility. They can be used for all kind of rooms including the living room and bedroom. Its ability to easily convert itself from a sofa to bed and vice versa, makes it a good option for those looking for economical furniture and better space management. Also they are very attractive and easy to maintain with unbeatable simplicity.
The metal frames are cheaper alternative for wood double futon frames, yet still maintains the classy look. A black arm rest framed futon bed looks fantastic if placed in a modern room with black as the motif. The bed doesn‘t really need to be eye catching when choosing the frame as its style can subtly blend in with the decor of your room. In the recent times, double is the most preferred size. The futon mattress usually comes in 54" x 75". This can already seat 2 or 3 individuals, and can accommodate 2 people lying down. Meanwhile, the queen futon bed comes with a fairly larger measure of 60" x 80". Sure, the additional 5 inches won‘t make that much difference in terms of seating and sleeping space, but it tends to be out of place once folded as the back tends to be higher. Also, it is bigger and heavier, which is why people tend to like double futon more.
The functionality of the futon has been adapted some in western culture. Although traditionally, the futon did not have a frame but law directly on the hard floor, it has been adapted and place on the frame. Most of the western world‘s variants have hard plywood or soft pinewood frames. A common incorporation is the futon couch. The couch looks like it has two large bags that are filled with soft things. One of the compartments is for your butt and the other is for your back, when it is in the seated position. It can be laid flat to resemble a bed when you want to sleep. More commonly, these are being added to children‘s rooms. Microfibers are used to prevent staining, and also help contribute to their popularity in kids‘ rooms as well as living rooms that have a lot of family traffic.
