Futon Bunk Bed Ready For A Modern Comfortable Daybed

The futon bunk bed has come a long way from college dorms and small apartments. Asian students were the first to use futons as they were familiar with the Japanese tatami. Futons quckly became popular because of their functionality.

Later, someone came up with the idea of lifting it up off the floor and creating a foldable support that would be used as sofa by day and transform into a mattress by night. If you're thinking of buying a futon or daybed as a space-saving solution, here's what you'll need to note. Futon Frame Let's look at the frame. A good quality futon frame is made of wood, with the support slats lined up close together. This way, the mattress won't be squeezed between the slats resulting in discomfort for your back.

Knowing where you will use the futon helps you choose the frame. Some models have to be placed away from the wall in order to serve as a bed. Since, in some instances, that distance can be four to six inches, you may need to choose a wall-hugger model. A special hinge allows it to fold out without hitting the wall much like the wall-hugger recliner.

Futon Mattress Good quality futons come with higher quality mattresses. Originally, all those mattresses were very heavy. They were filled with only cotton and weighed up to eighty pounds.

Although you can still find the all cotton variety, the modern daybed mattress is usually filled with a poly-cotton blend and weigh in between thirty and fifty pounds. This allows for superior support and softness without all the weight. Today's major mattress makers are also getting into the futon business. Innerspring versions are gaining in popularity. Although they sleep much more comfortably than the traditional mattress, they can be a bit trickier when it comes time function as a couch.

While this can be a great option for a futon bunk bed that is used every day, it may be a bit pricey for a guest room. Futon Cover When it comes time to dressing up your daybed, remember that the choices are unlimited if you have chosen a neutral frame. The mattress can be covered with futon covers made of any number of materials from cotton to silk, and the material can be matched to your decorating choices. A more popular choice with today's consumers is the leather or faux leather futon cover. Summary Shop for a high-quality futon. A comfortable futon bunk bed can look good and is surprisingly affordable.

Just follow the guidelines above when you're out or online looking for one.
