Futons come in varied sizes due to their flexibility and they can be used differently in different rooms. You can get a futon bed for the den, the family room, guest room or even in your child’s bedroom. Usually, they are used as beds in dorms or some apartments.
The futon is quite versatile as a piece of furniture as it can be a bed and a sofa. It does not take much to convert it from a bed to a sofa or vice versa and it also takes up less space in the room than if you would have both items. If you are limited for space, the futon is the Hail Mary of furniture. The futon’s construction is direct and relatively simple, which makes rearrangement, disassembling, and assembling them an easy task. Usually, they come in a box and the work required to put it together is minimal as in no time you will have a comfortably functional piece of furniture for your living space.
Here are some things you need to keep in mind when buying a futon for your bedroom.
Seeing as futons have two furniture options rolled into one, they are very light meaning you can move them around the home very easily. Opt for a futon that is very easy to reassemble and take apart so it can act as a temporary furniture piece to be used in the event you have guests over.
Futons are excellent if you are looking for a budget buy that still provides comfort and at a lower price, you can still get high quality. A high-end sofa will cost you a lot more than a high-end futon would.
Put lumpy mattresses behind you as futons now are made just like standard mattresses with features such as inner springs, memory foam, or in cotton. The comfort coil is the most popular futon mattress with layers of foam and inner springs. It is also halfway built like a bed and halfway built like a sofa. In a nutshell, there are many luxuriously thick and plush futons in the market to suit your needs.
A futon can be separated into three parts: the cover, the mattress, and the frame. You can get a futon frame in any shape, size and make from industrial metal to luxurious oak. This will make customizing your futon a lot easier to fulfill your design requirements. For an entirely different look, the futon slipcovers are very easy to switch up; all you have to do is unzip and voila!
