Target Futon Mattress
The target futon has come a long way in the last forty years, but the traditional 100% cotton futon mattress is still a favorite among college students and living space deprived. There are now many different types of futon mattresses available so you should know what you are looking for before you buy.
Examine the futon mattress frame. A typical futon is a bi-fold style that goes from an upright position to a flat bedside bed and the mattress is about the same size as a full size bed. There are also three-leaf and platform bolsters, and futon comes now in single, double, full, queen, and even king mattress sizes. Determine how much this futon will be used and how it will be used to help you set a budget. If futon will only be used occasionally for overnight guests, a standard futon mattress should suffice. If this futon mattress is being there, someone sleeps every night, investing in a thicker, higher quality mattress.
Find out what kind of mattress filling works best for your needs. You need a mattress that is at least six inches thick, and thicker if it’s to be your primary sofa or bed. Futon mattresses are filled with a number of materials including cotton, wool, and polyester, various types of foam, inner skirt and hybrid material. Each material provides various advantages and disadvantages. Choose a thicker foam core with cotton polyester wadding if this futon mattress will become a bed on a regular basis. Buy a sledding futon mattress if you sleep mainly on futon and want the closest experience to a traditional bed that a futon can provide.
