Futons

Affordable and flexible futon furniture

Futons are a mainstay of living rooms, bedrooms and dens because of their multipurpose functionality and comfort. As economical as they are useful, futons are ideal if you have frequent overnight guests, want to maximize space in your bedroom or simply like to have options at your disposal.

These pieces are available in a wide range of variants, including not only the standard futon bed, but also the futon bunk bed and futon chair. They're available at just about every home furnishing retailer you'll come across; in fact, they're so popular that some stores sell futon furniture exclusively.

The Science Behind Futons

  • The style of the futon frame relative to other furnishings in the room where it's going to be placed.
  • The anticipated frequency of use – choose thicker mattresses and more durable frames if you anticipate guests will sleep on it regularly. Typically, futon mattresses range between 6 and 8 inches in thickness.

Accentuate the piece by choosing futon covers that match the theme of the room. Futon covers are available in every fabric, color and pattern imaginable, and because they are removable, it is easy to keep your futon clean. There are different options in cover designs, as well; some pop on and off like a fitted sheet, while oth...
