Rub guards, commonly referred to as striker plates are a good thing to look for as well. These metal plates keep the wood wearing away where two piece of wood come into contact while in motion. These are usually located on the front and rear stretcher rails. The rear stretcher rail must absorb the impact of the back deck when it drops down while the front cross rail must endure the rubbing of the seat deck while it slides back and forth. The metal plates help to buffer the stretcher rails from this abuse.
First, let's talk about fabric. Do you want cotton? Or leather? Or even denim? Maybe you want a futon sofa that looks like a regular sofa. They make covers in upholstery fabric, too. What fabric you choose depends on your own personal style and the needs of your family. If you have a big family, you should save yourself the grief and get a heavy duty futon cover. A simple denim will be inexpensive and wear like a good pair of jeans. If that is too dark, you might want to shop for a upholstery fabric. It is designed to stand up to the wear and tear of daily use.
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.
