A futon is a bedding system, consisting of a base, a comforter or blanket, and a pillow. The most comfortable futon mattresses are usually filled with cotton batting. The first futon mattress was made in japan- it was a thin mattress only about two-three inches thick, filled with long-staple cotton, ad this is what made the futon sturdier and more durable. They are easy to roll and store during the day when not in use. The thing that made futons popular was the fact that they were easily portable and easy to store.

Why buy a futon?

Nowadays futons are an excellent alternative to traditional bedding systems, as they provide more space and are less expensive. They are very versatile as they are multi-functional. Beds are elevated and they occupy too much space. Having a wooden or metal frame bed in your room limits your ability to redesign your room. But with futons the ability to redesign and renovate your room are endless.

Are you aware of the health benefits of sleeping on a futon?

The main difference between a bed and a futon is the mattress that is used. The bed has a heavy spring mattress. If you love a soft hugging mattress then these are for you. But the main problem that the consumers face with them is back problems that can ruin your good night’s sleep. Whereas futons provide a firm surface that helps keep the spin straight preventing any back problems.

What do we love about futons?

The most comfortable futon is the one that provides even weight distribution. It takes the form of the curves of your body while relieving some pressure points as well in the neck, shoulder, back, and hips. Moreover, they are available in different colors to match your décor.
