With more traditional furniture, the inner frame is covered and very difficult to access. The makes any type of home repairs extremely irritating at best. Futons are very open though and everything is easily accessible. Often, repairs to the frame can be made by novices and parts replaced at low cost.
The cost advantages futons offer start with their origins in Japan. In a land were space is often at a premium and a chair may consist of a pillow on the floor, they are a logical choice for bedding. They simply are taken out at night and folded up to be stored away in a closet during the day.
In the 2000's Futons came a long way. They are now being used as actual furniture due to the beautiful designs of the frames, as well as the advancements in futon mattresses. Some of them rival the feel of the finest sofa or bed mattresses available and are made with very high quality combinations of ingredients, including several types of Memory Foam, Latex, Springs, Wool, Soy Foams, Cotton, Organic Cotton, Polyester, Spring Cores, Silk, Cashmere, and more. There are also Natural, Green, and Organic Futons for those with chemical sensitivities or that just want to get away from all of the harmful chemicals that are put into bedding these days. Futons are no longer just a temporary bed or couch for college students or kids.
