Futon frames and mattresses can go just about anywhere, I havent seen a space that they dont accommodate. Ive seen the frames I sell go into third story rooms in those gorgeous 1800s New England Colonials. While they are beautiful homes, they are quite a chore to move anything into or out of. I have sold many Futon Frames and Mattresses to customers in New York City, where space is at such a premium, that Ive lost count.
If you are looking for a way to make a room versatile, a futon may be the answer. Perhaps you have moved into a small studio, and you need your bed to serve as a couch during the day. You may be starting your first semester in college, and you want to make the most of your dorm room. You might want to have a place for guests to stay when they visit while your spouse wants an office to work from home.
A lounge sofa can be placed next to a two-seat futon. Then, an end table can be placed in the corner, and a three seat futon can be placed at the long end of the room. This creates a sectional look out of individual pieces of furniture that are more functional separately than a traditional sectional. A futon bunk bed is a two-seat futon that is connected to a loft bed. This creates additional space for a dorm room or a childs room.
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.
