Natasha Potts. Futon. March 31st , 2018.
Futons can also be made from a variety of materials, although wood and metal are typically the most commonly used. The decision to choose one over the other is really a matter of personal preference than anything else. Wood tends to be a \"warmer\" material and is often preferred by those that like a more traditional aesthetic to their furniture and home décor. And because wood can be easily stained, chances are one can easily find the right hue to match any existing furniture. Metal frames are most often used in contemporary design styles, as well as for many of the less expensive futons. Steel and aluminum tend to be the most commonly used metals because they are both easily shaped and are extremely durable. Furthermore, metal can be painted to match any existing décor or color scheme.
You can match the futon to existing furniture, or you can select the futon first and build the other furniture and dcor around it. Futons make excellent editions to the media room or entertainment room. They also work well in guest rooms, because it will allow you to use the room as a sitting area, reading area or television room when it is not being used. Futons are also great for kids rooms because they can enjoy games, television or visiting with friends without having an extra piece of furniture.
There are also excellent photographs online to get ideas from. Futons allow you to use fewer pieces of furniture in the home for maximum functionality. They are also better on bad backs than traditional mattress and box spring sets usually are. This is due to the firm mattress being thinner and keeping your spine straighter during the night.
After explaining this to people many come to understand the nature of why futons have been given a bad name because of the import black metal futon frame and are open to at least trying out the possibilities of higher-end models. Futon shops or specialty sleep stores carry a wide selection of proven wood futon frames and often have anywhere from half a dozen futon mattresses or more to choose from all made from quality materials.
Continuing moving forward in futon designs a futon patent was filed in 1994 by Peter W. Dodge (Patent Number 5513398) for a futon that featured a tilt mechanism. This allowed a transfer from the bed position to the sofa position using guide slots or routed out grooves using rollers to move up and down the seat and back sections of the futon frame. This design would soon be emulated by many other manufacturers in that the arms had become the central focal point of the operation of the futon frame.
