semangat. Futon. April 19th , 2018.
This isn't just an issue with one manufacturer in particular. We've seen this from 4 different metal futon frame manufacturers offering these frames. There is just not enough materials or quality of construction to justify these frames as a viable furniture solution for consumers. It should also make people question purchasing one of these frames when they only carry a 30-90 day warranty. Any manufacturer who warranties a piece of furniture for this amount of time doesn't expect it to last very long and neither should you as the consumer. 98% of our futon related service issues over a 10 year period resulted from failures with black metal frames. Often within the first year of ownership.
Futon frames that have slats that are 2.5\" wide should have at least twelve slats on the seat and twelve on the back for a total of 24 slats. Futons with 1.75\" slats should have at least 15 slats on the seat and 15 slats on the back for a total of 30 slats. If the slats are any thinner or if the respective futon you are considering has less slats than indicated here, you might want to ask why.
Having worked in retail and having worked in furniture stores carrying futons. I can honestly say that as a retailer it is very frustrating to know that stores still carry low end black metal frames. My intentions in this article are not to be harsh but I really hope retailers figure out that low end products made to hit a particular price point are not doing consumers or themselves any great service. Consumers deserve quality well made products at reasonable prices based on the materials and labor that went into that product. When this doesn't happen expectations aren't met. Disappointment and dissatisfaction soon follow and the consumer is left with a negative feeling towards the product. The intent of this article was to bring forth the experiences I've had with this product line not only from having retailed it but from what customers have shared with me about these products. I feel strongly that black metal futon frames should be avoided by both retailers and consumers alike. If you've had a negative experience with these frames I would encourage you to not judge the entire futon industry by these particular products. If you're a consumer I encourage you to shop a futon retailer or futon specialty store and discover the \"real\" world of futons and what they have to offer for both you and your home.
There are many types of modern day futons nowadays. The different variety of bed couches are usually seen in the frames, materials used, and its cover. The different material found in these futons makes it possible for them to be sold with different prices. You would need to remember that you would be using these bed couches day and night, and buying cheap ones with low quality material would only subject you to product degradation faster than you expect it to be. It is more profitable to buy decent to good quality futons with great durability so you can use it for a long time despite a rather high price.
Having less is more in many respects. If you have a lot of clutter in your bedroom or night stand, you may be feeling anxious, jittery or not rested. This will greatly affect your mood and body functions. The key is to simplify your space. You may find that you can replace your traditional mattress with one of the many modern futon mattress choices that are every bit as comfortable as your traditional bed. Then, just by adding a futon bed frame with storage, you can instantly get rid of your clutter. It will still be within reach, but out of direct eye lines. Again, you need not completely convert your bedroom space to a traditional Japanese room complete with tatami mats, just take what elements work and go with them.
