Futons are the ultimate in space saving furniture with a dual purpose. Futon mattresses are comfy as well as stylish, as they are available to buy in a huge range of colours. Futon mattresses are manufactured by packing layers of materials over each other, usually a mixture of felt and wool. The futon cover is a fixed item; many people simply throw a rug over the futon when it’s in the sofa mode to keep it clean.

Popular futon bases are metal and wood, with the wooden futon bases being cheaper by design. Slats of timber are easily assembled to provide a good supporting frame, one benefit of using timber as a futon base is that you can paint or varnish it a different colour if you wish.

A futon will provide a good night’s sleep for an unexpected guest, and is easy to convert from a sofa to a bed. Children love using futons as the novelty of setting it up and sleeping over at a friend’s house is exciting as a midnight feast.

When the schools break up at term time, 6 weeks of spending time with children could lend to a few frazzled nerves, so break up the tedium with a sleepover and be prepared by buying a new futon online.
