Futon beds can be configured into a bed, daybed (raised backrest) as well as a couch position offering versatility which is non existent in a conventional bed.
In a small apartment or house, finding a sleep spot for visiting guests can often be a logistical nightmare. When your guest bedrooms are limited, one of the easiest ways to add that extra mattress is through a futon. Today, they come in a variety of colours and mattress sizes, so you can accommodate all your family without sacrificing good style.
Is a futon comfortable? This is the ultimate question: Buy an uncomfortable mattress, and you’ll find your guests preferring the floor to the bed. Test it out like a regular mattress and be sure it supports the shoulders, hips and lower back. The thickness of the futon doesn’t necessarily mean extra comfort; the construction is what matters most.
They only take up space when in use, otherwise, futons fold up nicely and function as additional seating. While the comfort and size are most important, you also want something that looks good in your current space. Futons are no longer clunky and ugly; they come in a wide variety of colours and configurations, so you can easily find something that is both pretty and practical.
