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.

  • 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

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.

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

1. Make the Windows Your Own

When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

2. Put up Some Art

If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.

Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

3. Improve the Aroma

A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.

5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

6. Improve Your Air Quality

One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

7. Fill it with Plants

Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.

8. Change the Doorknobs

Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

10. Fresh Cut Flowers
