When the advantages of futons are brought up, the first thing to come to the minds of many is their use when guests stop the night. Monetary and space considerations limit furniture options for many people and make it impossible for them to have extra, or enough, guest beds. For those people, futons are a godsend.
They do not require a bed frame and can simply be folded up and stored away when the guests leave. As they are much smaller than a bed is, they open up more potential places to sleep too. This means that they are perfect for people whose homes have small rooms.
When used with a frame, futons become a multi-purpose piece of furniture. What was a bed last night can become a sofa in the morning. The frames can be adjusted at any time, meaning that they can be transformed in minutes depending on the need.
While maintaining their style, futon frames are simple and inexpensive, and futon mattresses will not set a buyer back nearly as much bed mattresses and sofas will. Furthermore, their ability to transform reduces the need to buy as many different types of furniture.
The design of futons also makes them very easy to disassemble and break down. This makes them easier to move within a home and reduces expenses when moving to a new apartment or house. For younger people, who tend to move every year or so, this is a major plus point.
Futon covers add to the flexibility and cost effectiveness of futons. These covers protect the futons and extend their life spans. When the covers wear out, they can be replaced cheaply and easily. They also offer a way to change the look of the furniture when moving or remodeling. Available in far more colors and styles than can be mentioned, many people change them with the seasons.
It is worth understanding about the different types of futon frames. There are three main types of futon frames. The tri-fold frame gets its name from the fact that it is designed to be folded in thirds the short way on the frame. While this offers more options when placed on the frame, the down side is that they are less comfortable than the more popular bi-fold frame because of their thinner mattress.
Bi-fold frames, which fold once the long way on the frame, are more comfortable and the most popular. They come in full, queen and chair sizes. Also using the bi-fold structure is the loveseat futon frame. However, they are specifically designed to fit into tight spaces. As for which type of futon is best, it really is a case of the size of your home and your personal preference.
