5 Tips to Choose the Best Futon Mattress

5 Tips to Choose the Best Futon Mattress

People have many choices in beds. They can choose a Sleep Number mattress, a Serta mattress, a Tempur-Pedic mattress, a sofa bed or a futon mattress. Each option has its own advantages and disadvantages.

For example, if you and your spouse have different needs for firmness, you will want to go with the Sleep Number bed. If you want the bed to conform to your body, a Tempur-Pedic is the way to go. If you live in a one-bedroom or studio apartment, you might want a futon for when guests visit. Although you have your choice in futon mattresses, some futon companies offer more variety than others. Why would you want to choose a futon mattress? Here are some reasons.

  • Visitors

As previously stated, people, especially those in large cities, who live in small apartments can benefit from futons. They serve dual purposes. It is a couch when no one is visiting and a bed when they do. While sofa beds also serve dual purposes, they often take up more room than futons when they are made into a bed. Some small spaces don’t allow for a sofa bed when it is extended. FabFuton can beautify any decor because it offers many prints, solids and colors.

  • Health

Some people have trouble sleeping on traditional mattresses. These people prefer futons for their health and ability to sleep. Often, a futon provides the support health professionals recommend.

Some brands use natural materials without chemicals and dyes. This makes the sleeping environment healthy for people because they don’t have to worry about possible issues. In addition, some futons are able to prevent allergy or asthma attacks.

  • Comfort

Futons used to be stiff and uncomfortable. They were the bed of choice for bachelors. However, today, they are comfortable and fun to use.

They are soft and are they are showing up in homes besides bachelor pads. Some brands of Futons are comfortable and stylish. Therefore, they serve two purposes – comfort and style in addition to a bed and a couch.

  • Long-Lasting

While mattresses are recommended to be replaced after eight years, futons will last longer. Part of the reason for the longer life of futons is the fact that they are used sparingly. But, they are also are built to last because they serve two purposes. And, their design lends itself to longer life more than a mattress.

  • Fits Style

FabFutons, as well as, other companies offer a variety of styles and options for apartment residents. At FabFutons, the company sells complete futons, futon covers, futon beds and  futon mattresses. The styles can fit any personality and achieve the vision of residents or interior designers. Futons also work in small spaces more than sofa beds or other types of beds.

How to Choose a Futon Mattress

Once you decide to put a futon in your space, you need to choose the right one for you. Follow these tips for the best futon buying experience.

1. Use

You need to determine how often you will be using the futon as a bed. Do you have a relative that crashes at your place regularly? You want to choose a durable design with a darker color choice. If you get visitors only once or twice a year, then you can get away with light colors and designs not necessarily built to last. You might want to avoid light colors if you don’t want stains from spills on it.

2. Vibe

Every futon sets a tone for a room. You want to choose the futon that fits your personality and the mood you envision in the room or space, and color choices for the walls or drapes.

3. Thickness

Before you purchase a futon, you should decide how thick you want the mattress. This will relate to comfort level for the guests or yourself if you are using it.

4. Covers

Some people want to put a mattress cover on their futon. If you do, make sure the cover matches the decor.

5. Frame

Like beds, the frame will determine the size of the mattress. Pick the futon mattress that will fit the frame but will not be hanging over it. At the same time, you don’t want a futon mattress that is too short or thin either. You want it to fit correctly.
