Why The Comfortable And Versatile Futon Is Growing In Popularity

By: teahupoo
When considering a comfy place to catch a good night's sleep, most of us don't immediately picture a futon. However, these inexpensive and increasingly popular pieces of furniture have the potential to both lull you into a deep sleep or help you capture that quick nap you're needing.

Futon materials range greatly, with merchandise including the frame, mattress, and covering. Frames often come in metal, hardwood, rattan, oak, pine, and other high-quality materials for premium frames. The frame just depends on the quality of the futon, and a buyer can find just about any type of futon needed at the futon store.

A futon's mattress, more than any other element, determines its comfort level. Consumers can find a variety of mattresses depending on their desired price and comfort level. The average person looking for a futon simply as a couch for sitting will want to consider the simpler mattresses, while a person seeking a comfortable guest bed might want to consider the thicker mattresses made of foam or the plush mattresses extending up to eight inches thick. Innerspring mattresses even exist for futons now, for those seeking the most comfortable night's sleep.

Futon coverings have the potential to reveal the personal style of the futon owner. The conservative might go with the solid gray or white cover while the zany person might consider the red, orange, or blue display. If the futon's colors don't necessarily bring out your personality, you could decorate your futon with sheets, blankets, and pillows available at the futon store. Consider the Asian designs, southwestern, ocean and tropical, abstract, retroactive, and even pattern shapes that cover the futon with exotic paintings and portraitures.

While futons are growing in popularity and thus are becoming more available at local furniture stores, they still fall into that specialty category. Thus a futon store might be your best bet if you're looking for a unique or especially comfortable futon. The complete futon package of a frame, mattress, and covering from the average futon store will run you around $500 to $1000. Sure, futon store products will run a bit higher than the average bargain furniture store's, but you're purchasing a higher-quality product at the specialty store.

Online stores might again be your best bet, then, if you're really wanting a special futon. These stores will ship what you want from across the country, and you never have to leave your office. Additionally, online futon stores will feature the same futon found in local futon stores for a cheaper price because they only pay or supply. Additionally, shipping is fast and in many cases is free with your purchase. Finally, online sales exclude local tax, so once again, you're saving money.

No matter where you purchase your futon from, you will enjoy its convenient and comfortable sitting and sleeping features.
