What is a futon?

Futons, also known as convertible sofa beds, began as simple, space-saving mattresses that could be rolled up and stored during the day. Modern futon designs have evolved to consist of a mattress and a metal or wooden frame. They are easy to assemble and can be quickly converted from a couch to a bed and back. They maintain their ease of use and flexibility as multifunctional furniture.

Although sleep sofas, daybeds, and futons often serve the same purpose, there are some key differences. The mattress of a sleeper sofa is stored under the frame when not in use. The futon mattress is part of the sofa and merely folds out when needed. Western-style futon beds are not covered in upholstery, while a sleeper sofa is fully upholstered. Daybeds have a trundle that stashes under the daybed. They serve the main function of a bed, instead of a couch.

What is the mattress size for a futon?

Since futons are often used in small apartments, student housing, and as quick beds in living rooms, the most common futon mattress sizes are full/double and queen sizes. Compact, space savers when folded up, this size can easily accommodate two people when opened up and used as a bed. Queen and king sizes are gaining popularity due to their extra sleeping and sitting space.

Full-size futons: 75”w 54”d 8”h

Queen-size futons: 80”w 60”d 8”h

How long does a futon mattress last?

The lifespan of a futon mattress can vary depending on several factors, including the quality of the materials, frequency of use, and how well it is maintained. On average, a futon mattress can last between 5 to 10 years.

Foam and innerspring mattresses generally last longer than cotton or wool-filled mattresses. They have a lifespan similar to regular mattresses, usually around 7 to 10 years. Cotton and wool-filled mattresses tend to compress over time and may need to be replaced more frequently, typically every 5 to 7 years.

If your futon mattress is sagging or uneven, lacks firmness, shows visible wear and tear, or looks flat, it is time to consider replacing it. If you need to replace your futon mattress, you can shop for futon mattresses here.

How do you maintain a futon?

Maintaining a futon properly can significantly extend its lifespan and keep it comfortable. Here are some tips:

  • Rotate and flip the mattress every 1-3 months to help distribute the wear evenly.
  • Make sure all screws and bolts on the frame are tight to reduce uneven wear.
  • Vacuum the upholstery regularly to remove dust and dirt. Spot clean spills and stains immediately.
  • Use a mattress cover or futon cover regularly to reduce the stains, wear, and tear on it. Find mattress covers here.

What are the types of futons?

Because you can purchase a mattress and frame separately, you can customize the style and color to your exact specifications. Do you want a memory foam futon or faux leather? We have the futon for you! And you can change the color anytime you wish by simply changing the mattress cover.

Below are different varieties of futons that can add style and functionality to your home.

  • Bifold Frames: The bifold frame is the most common and popular due to its extreme versatility. With this frame, the futon mattress folds in half the long way. Perfect for use as a sofa and easily converted into a bed, we offer these frames in full and queen sizes.
  • Armless Frames: If you need a futon mattress that can accommodate someone tall, the armless frame is the way to go. When opened up, this type of frame looks more like a traditional bed and offers more space for taller people. When closed, it provides a little more seating space than a frame with arms.
  • Convertible Sofa Futons: These futons are more of a hybrid between futons and sofa beds. With sleek minimalist lines and a variety of colors, it can easily fit into modern and transitional spaces. They open easily and convert from a couch into a futon. Convertible sofa futons have thick poly-wrapped high-resiliency foam cushions for comfort and style. You can find them with or without arms for maximum size.
  • Convertible Ottoman Futons: Is it an ottoman, a chair, or a bed? How about all three? This type of futon is ideal for a guest room that doubles as a home office. It is perfect as an ottoman in the living room. The large size provides plenty of space to put your feet up after a long day. It quickly converts into a comfortable platform sleeper for weekend guests. The foam cushion is super comfortable, and the contemporary style and compact size easily fit into any room.

What is the best futon for regular use?

When looking for the best futon for regular use, comfort and durability are key factors to consider. Here are some tips to find the most comfortable futon for you:

  1. Thickness: Opt for a thicker mattress (at least 8 inches) for better comfort and support.
  2. Frame Quality: Choose a sturdy frame that can support the weight of daily use without sagging or breaking.
  3. Material Preference: Consider your comfort and mattress preferences. We carry a variety of softness and firmness options.
  4. Dual Use: Ensure the futon you choose is comfortable for both sitting and sleeping. We offer trial periods to ensure your satisfaction.
