When I first got into the Futon business about six years ago, I was under the impression, as a lot of folks are, that futons weren't nice enough for anywhere other than college dorms and first apartments. Well, things have certainly changed. This is not to say that those unfinished tri-fold frames with thin all cotton futon mattresses don't exist anymore, they do, but there are also some very nice frames, mattresses, and futon covers in today's market.

If you're shopping for a futon, here are some things to think about if you see a black metal futon frame in a mass merchant or big box store. Consider the fact that most solid wood futon frames carry a warranty anywhere from a year to a lifetime warranty. Black metal futon frames have a 90 day warranty. It says something about how much the manufacturer stands behind the product. Black metal frames are made overseas. Expect to wait for a part if something breaks or if you're past that 90 day warranty, expect to pay for all replacement parts and associated costs to get your frame up and running again. Consider too that parts may also no longer be available should something break. Metal bars allow mattresses to slide into and through the gaps between each bar. This puts lumps in your mattress and can make the futon quite uncomfortable when compared to flat wooden slats on wood frames.

Because they come flat in about six primary parts they are easy to get around tough corners in a home or into tight spaces where most furniture can't go. Why is this important? Most upholstered furniture can't be easily disassembled to fit through tight spaces. Futons can, and can easily. In most cases you simply take each part in one at a time and then assemble it in the room. What could be easier?

Are you looking for something for your guest bedroom? A sofa that can convert into a bed when company's over? Would you like a beautiful piece of furniture for your small space? Maybe your door way is not wide enough to get that expensive sofa through? If you've asked yourself any of those questions, a futon is for you.

This piece of furniture has been altered by manufactures so that the word can be defined as a piece of furniture that serves more than one purpose.

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.

While traditional furniture requires a lot of storage space, futon frames can be quickly disassembled and stored even in homes with very limited space. This can reduce the need to buy storage space or sell furniture that will need to be bought back again.

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.
