How long will my frame last? Always look for a futon frame that is made from solid hardwoods, avoid any frames that are made from particle board or MDF. Measure width and the distance between the slats on the back and seat decks. Slats should be at least two and a half inches wide and if the spacing is more than three inches, forget it. Even with the best mattress on the market you'll feel slats that are too thin, or to far apart. If you use a futon frame with substandard, unsupported slats you run the risk of ruining your mattress. Try to look for frames that feature mortise and tennon joinery and metal on metal connections, they'll only add to the life of your frame.

Synthetic fibers; polyester, nylon, rayon and such; might not be quite as soft but they last longer than natural fibers. Synthetic fibers have come a long way, they are constantly being improved and they hold vivid dyes that cotton and linen can't. A good compromise between Natural and Synthetic fibers is blends of the two, which are in abundance in the futon cover market.

What are the pro's and con's to natural fibers vs. foams? How long should my futon mattress last? Feel is a rather subjective term; someone's firm could be too soft for another. As a general rule of thumb, my customers like a firm futon for sleeping, a soft futon for sitting, and in between mattress for a sofa that converts into a guest bed. Foam futons usually retain the firmness they have when purchased, but only if the foam is of an acceptable quality. Look for foam that has a density no less than 1.2 pound per cubic foot. With foam, higher density usually equals a long lasting mattress that retains it feel. Natural fibers, mostly cotton, are good for futons that need more flexibility. For those of us that are traditionalist's a natural fiber and foam blend is a good choice when looking at a futon mattress.

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.

Click-clack bed looks like a traditional sofa, love seat, or chair. It has a metal frame covered with cloth, suede, or leather and transforms into a bed using a series of hinges. Some click-clack beds have traditional arms that are removed, while others are designed so the head and foot of the bed bend up to create armrests when it is in a couch form.
