Futons are great for using in small rooms and apartments and this is why you will find them in college dorms and bachelor pads. They are probably the most versatile piece of furniture. And they can be easily used as a bed or a couch.
But if you buy futon, it is very important that you also look for a suitable futon mattress. You can get futon mattresses in two materials. Cotton and foam are the most common. There are also futon mattresses that combine both cotton and foam.
First, what you need to decide is how you want to use it. The type of mattress will depend on this factor. So, if you want to use your futon as a bed, then your mattress should be at least 6 inches thick. A thin mattress will prove to be very uncomfortable for sleeping.
You should also consider buying a cover for your mattress to prevent staining. This will ensure that your mattress does not require frequent washing and make it last longer.
The cover also helps you add some style to your furniture and room. Use a mattress pad to absorb sweat and dirt. And if you want to use the mattress in a child’s room, just put a vinyl cover underneath.
You will need a flexible mattress if you intend to use your futon as a bed and couch. So, use a cotton-polyester blend or innerspring mattress. Foam mattresses are also a great option since it easily fits into any shape and also provides good support.
The price depends on the size, brand, material, and the construction. It can range from a $100 to a few hundred dollars. Some good manufacturers are Sealy, Beautyrest, and Simmons.
You can get your futon mattress shipped without any charges from Futon Store. If you are looking for some discounts, then Overstock is great. Walmart, Target, and JC Penny also sell these mattresses.
A futon is great for your bedroom or your guestroom since it provides you with adequate comfort, is durable, and is also not very expensive.
