14 Common Misconceptions About Futons


Maybe you have slept or at least attempted to sleep on a futon bed? You probably got up the next morning with a pain in your back or a tender shoulder. I bought a futon about fifteen years past. I believed it was excellent in my little room. I had a sofa to watch television and a bed all in one. That was until those sleepless nights. I do not recall much from those days but what I do remember is DON’T PURCHASE A AFFORDABLE FUTON! Futon beds can range in cost anywhere from $99 to over a thousand dollars. Really it is quite simple, the more you pay the more you sleep. And the less you pay the less you sleep. There are some wonderfully made futons that have rather a hefty price tag and actually you get what you pay for.

Futon beds are a great creation. They’re great space savers and most of them are assembled fairly nicely. The misconception most people have about futon beds is that they are all uncomfortable. Most of those beds are really uneasy. For more information on futon, we recommend checking out the following website. They are not meant to be used as a replacement for a regular bed. Think of them as simply an extra bed for business. There are some futon beds that really are quite comfortable, they just cost more than there more affordable stereotypes. But the more economical ones are excellent if you have company over and you want another bed for company to sleep. In this scenario relaxation is not actually an issue, it’s better than sleeping on the floor. But, should you be buying a futon bed that you will be sleeping in every night than it’s best that you spend more money to sleep in comfort.

Futon beds were devised in Japan and were designed to be stored away in the closet when not in use. The whole idea of turning a bed into a couch was a western one and the western futon was also designed substantially larger than the Japanese one having more of a similarity to a full sized mattress. The futons of these days have definitely come along way from those of the 70’s. Now they are more practical and there has been lots of changes to give them added relaxation. Essentially a good rule of thumb is to pay somewhere in the middle of the cost range depending on what it is being used for. If it’ll be used nightly spend a little more, but, if it’s just going to be used a couple of times a year, you’re probably safe in shelling out less cash.
