HOW TO BUY THE BEST FUTON FOR YOUR BUCK?
What is Futon?
Futons are what I like to call a Couch with identity issues. It is a couch but it is not. It is a bed but its not. Futons can be easily turned into a bed with much more comfortable mattress than sofa bed mattresses.
One of the best reasons for having a futon is added sleeping space that can easily convert to a seating area when it is not in use.
Why Futon is the right choice for YOU?
Most people love having a futon in their office area, guestroom, or studio apartment so when that unexpected guest arrives, they can accommodate their guests by changing the futon to a bed and provide a comfortable sleeping space.
What do you need to know when buying a futon?
There are few things to look for when purchasing a futon.
1. The frame/mechanism, How easy is it to open and close?
2. What type of Futon mattress is sold with the futon frame?
How to Shop for Futon?
When shopping for a futon, it is best to start by looking at the frame and mechanism to see how everything is constructed. Typically metal frames are easier to open and close and last a lot longer than wooden frames. On a metal frame, the mechanism is designed to withstand use where as on a wooden frame it is not built to handle overuse. After few times of folding out the futon, some part of the wooden frame is bound to snap and break. Finding a replacement wooden part will be extremely difficult.
In addition, it is equally important to find out how to fold out the futon into a bed as well as how to fold it back up to a sitting position. Be sure to do a few tests in the store to make sure you understand how the frame works and that it is easy and effortless to adjust to your need.
The last major thing you have to figure out is what size of futon you prefer. Typically a futon comes in Queen or Full size. The most popular size is a full size because it can be fold down into a full size bed and no ottoman is needed.
Mattress is also another very important component of a futon. If you intend on using the futon more for sleeping than sitting, it is best to find an inner-spring futon mattress that will give you more comfort and durability than non-spring futon mattress. It will maintain its shape longer.
