Why Choose A Futon Bunk Bed

Mar 7, 2008
If you are looking for a new bed but are short on space a futon bunk bed is a good choice. Futon bunk beds can be used as a couch during the day and then be coverted in to a bed for sleeping. They are not expensive and come in many styles

Futon bunk beds come in a variety of different frame styles. Many are metal, and these come in all the colors of the rainbow. Other frames are wooden and can be found in many different finishes. You can find a frame to compliment any decor or theme.

Many people consider wooden frames with the slats close together to be the best type of futon. This supports the mattress well and is the most comfortable. Metal framed futon beds seem to be less comfortable.

When choosing your futon bunk bed consider styles where you can fold out the bottom bunk without having to move the frame and still have the bed up against the wall. This will help save space as some styles require the bed to be a little distance from the wall to be able to lay out the bed. You really want to be able to convert your sofa into a bed as easily as possible without moving the frame.

Depending on how often your futon bunk bed is going to be used will depend on the mattress you will want to buy. If it is used on a daily basis you will obviously want a good quality, possibly inner spring, mattress which although more expensive will last longer and should be more comfortable. If the futon is only being used for guests on a less regular basis you may want to consider a cheaper mattress.

Another thing to consider with your futon bunk bed is the mattress cover. There are many styles available and you will probably want one that blends in with the room and looks good as a couch covering and is suitable as a mattress cover. Silk and cotton are both popular with people.

A family with teenage children who are a little short on space find a futon bunk bed ideal for their childrens room. The kids can use the couch during the day and within a short space of time have it convert to a bed for night use. This versatility also makes them very poplar with students.

Since the futon was adapted from its original use in Japan of being placed on the floor it has become very poplar with people in the USA who are short on space. Placing the futon on a wood or metal frame and being able to use it as a couch or bed has made it a winner with students and young people.
