Gaetane Futon October 10th, 2017 - 12:29:38
It is the one part that is not 100% essential, but at the same time can improve your frame by 200%. Today you can find futon covers in a wide variety of colors, patterns, prints, and materials. Here are a few questions to ask yourself when looking for a futon cover. Do I need a cover that is washable? What is the difference between a natural and a synthetic fibers? I always recommend a washable cover to anyone that has pets or young children.
As a couch, students can use the futon to entertain or watch TV. Then they can open it for guests to sleep on. For dorm rooms, modern futons can be used as a way to diversify a space. Used as a couch during the day and a bed at night, the dorm room can look like a living room or a bedroom depending on what a student wants to have at any one time. There are also outdoor futons and swing futons for patios or porches.
You may hear futons described as a three-seat, love seat, lounge, click-clack bed, dorm futon, or bunk bed futon. It is best to read the description thoroughly to better understand the type of futon they are selling and if it will fit your needs. The description of the futon will typically supply the dimensions of the futon mattress. If the dimensions are 60x80, then this is a queen mattress and most likely a three-seat futon.
It was soon discovered though that these frames were not such a bargain that they appeared to be. The first problem with black metal frames is the round metal bars that make up the seat and back sections of these frames. Where as wood futon frames are using flat slats, black metal frames have hollow round bars. Thinner mattresses would slide through the gaps between the round bars. On wood futons this was never a problem.
