I've seen the frames I sell go into third story rooms in those gorgeous 1800's New England Colonials. While they are beautiful homes, they are quite a chore to move anything into or out of. I have sold many Futon Frames and Mattresses to customers in New York City, where space is at such a premium, that I've lost count. Don't forget those rural areas, where going to the furniture store is sometimes a day's drive.

Many improvements in designs and construction have taken place since futons first came onto the scene in the 70's. The core makeup of futons has stayed the same however. When shopping for a futon choose three components which include a frame, mattress and cover. These are available in a variety of options. You're sure to find the one that's just right for your own unique space.

A lounge futon can seat one or two people and has no armrests. The only piece that bends is the one that supports a person's back or shoulders and is arranged so the person is sitting up or lying down.

These frames while not as simple and inexpensive as the tri-fold designs allowed for greater creativity and design and looked more like conventional furniture. Bi-fold futon frames as their name suggests are made with two sections a seat and back rack. The design of these futon frames allowed for easier conversion from a sofa to a bed and back again and offered seating at the same height as most other furniture making them perfect for anyone. Arms at each end of the futon would be made in various designs and styles allowing for easy integration into almost any room. Bi-Fold futon frames are made in sofa, loveseat and chair sizes and are often available with matching tables and ottomans.

They are simply cheaper on average than regular sofas and beds. Since one futon can replace two pieces of furniture (a sofa and a bed), these cost savings are further amplified.

This creates additional space for a dorm room or a child's room. As a couch, students can use the futon to entertain or watch TV. Then they can open it for guests to sleep on.

The early futon mattresses consisted of a duck twill covering and were often filled with straight cotton batting. While soft and pretty comfortable, the issue with straight batting is that it would mat down quickly. Manufacturers developed a better design in adding convoluted and straight higher density foam cores into the mattress designs and this much improved the longevity of the futon mattresses. Innerspring mattresses were introduced later and added a feel that was more closely associated with conventional furniture for consumers who liked the idea of futons but desired the feeling and support of springs.

With futons, everything can be removed quickly and easily. The futon cover can simply be thrown in the wash or replaced. In more serious situations, the mattress can also be replaced without major expense.
