Admittedly, there are better more expensive pieces of furniture you could get, but that doesn't mean you disregard futons completely. If anything, they act as a great space saver, giving you a comfortable sleeping place, without taking up all the floor space. You get a sofa and a bed, without having to buy them individually.

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.

Having worked in furniture for many years I have always believed strongly in that you get what you pay for or that the value of what you're buying is in direct relation to the quality of the product and the price placed on those goods or services. I also believe that some products are capable of giving an entire line of furniture a bad name due to their specific lack of quality and unjustly so because one type of product doesn't represent the qualities of an entire line of furniture. No better example of this can be said than what black metal futon frames have done against the futon industry in the last 10 years. In this article I'll explain my position about the negative aspects these metal frames provide and why it would be best for consumers and retailers alike to move away from these frames that are giving the industry a bad name.

These came with imported mattresses that were constructed to be no more than 5\" to 6\" thick and contained ground up textile or fabric scrap. Various colored outer coverings that were not removable were tufted around the mattress materials making these difficult to clean. They retailed very cheap and individuals on a budget recognized the futon design from higher end wood models and felt these were indeed bargains since futons had a very good reputation for longevity and quality construction. Unfortunately these black tubular frames would begin to give futons a bad name.

This ensures that you can get the cover on and off easily. Many covers skimp on the zipper opening in order to keep the price down. It is worth an extra $50 to get a better design. After the first time you struggle to put on the cover, you will wish that you had coughed up the extra cash.

Black metal frames were being imported from China, Malaysia and Taiwan. Many of the early black metal frames were packaged with an import mattress made up of ground up textile materials and a colored covering with tufts. These packages were often anywhere in price from $199 - $249 and started out in specialty futon shops as a great way to introduce customers on a budget into a lower priced futon option. It was soon discovered though that these frames were not such a bargain that they appeared to be.

In a sunroom or other room with solid floors, such as tile or hardwood floors, the look of the futon will be softened by the edition of an area rug to cover the sitting area.

Stretcher rails are the most commonly segmented pieces of wood on the market. Stretcher rails (sometimes called cross rails) are the two long boards that span the bottom and connect the arms. There is one on the front and one on the back of nearly every wood futon ever made. These stretcher rails must support a tremendous amount of load, vibration and impact. They are vulnerable along the entire span, but most often fail with in the first six inches of a given joint, especially if they are segmented. Segmented stretcher rails are made up of smaller individual pieces of wood that are glued and compressed together to make up the length needed to span the distance between both armrests.

To maximize small spaces, the Japanese people fold their bed and store it in the closet while not in use so the room can be used to do accommodate other activities. The modern futons that are sold outside Japan however are a lot different than the original mattress as it is sold with different materials to upgrade its comfort level and to make it transformable into couches at day time.

The cotton and polyester types are also good, as well as extremely light. Light mattresses are vital if you're planning on using them as a sofa or if you're constantly changing premises - they're just a lot more mobile. Pick the heavier mattresses if you're using it only as a bed - these provide a lot more stability and tend to not shift around a lot when you sleep.
