When I first got into the Futon business about six years ago, I was under the impression, as a lot of folks are, that futons werent nice enough for anywhere other than college dorms and first apartments. Well, things have certainly changed. This is not to say that those unfinished tri-fold frames with thin all cotton futon mattresses dont exist anymore, they do, but there are also some very nice frames, mattresses, and futon covers in todays market.
When folded, the bi-fold futon bed mattress has a wider seating area than does the tri-fold futon bed mattress. The bi-fold futon looks much more like a traditional sofa, whereas the tri-fold futon looks more like a two seat sofa. If space is very limited you may want to consider buying a tri-fold futon bed mattress, but if not, the bi-fold futon bed mattress usually looks far more pleasing to the eye.
The flexibility of an inner spring futon mattress is quite poor, but you would only really buy this type of mattress if the futon is going to be used as a bed most of the time. Futon beds are a popular choice for many consumers due to their flexibility of function. Before buying a top rated futon bed mattress make sure that the qualities - mentioned above - of the mattress are what you require. If you know exactly what you want before you buy you are going to avoid being disappointed with the purchase of your futon bed.
The different materials used in futon mattresses will directly affect the four qualities of weight, firmness, rigidity, and flexibility. The following is a rough guide as to the qualities of futon mattresses made from 100% cotton, cotton and foam, cotton and polyester, 100% polyester, and innerspring. Futon bed mattresses made from 100% cotton are at the heavier end of the scale, as is its firmness and flexibility.
