But if space is at a premium and you will only occasionally sleep on your futon best, than the tri-fold will certainly suffice. The best futon bed mattress is the one that best suits your requirements. Consider the space you have available, and what will be the main function of the futon bed mattress. If the futon is going to be used regularly for sleeping on, then most consumer reviews of futon beds tend to favour the bi-fold futon frame and mattress.
However, the rigidity is quite low. A futon mattress made from a mixture of cotton and foam is much lighter and less firm than that of one made from 100% cotton. The rigidity of a cotton and foam futon mattress is quite high, so is ideal for futons that are going to be used mainly as a sofa. A futon mattress made from cotton and polyester is also light and not too firm. Its rigidity is less than that of 100% cotton or cotton and foam mattress.
There are a few things that you need to consider if you are looking for a futon. What is my frame made of? How long will my frame last? Always look for a futon frame that is made from solid hardwoods, avoid any frames that are made from particle board or MDF. Measure width and the distance between the slats on the back and seat decks. Slats should be at least two and a half inches wide and if the spacing is more than three inches, forget it.
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.
