A contemporary futon sofa bed is a folding frame and a mattress futon on it. The mattress can be folded and used separately as a bedding.
The sofa bed futon mattress slipcover usually protects the bedding surface from stains and dirt.
You may change the models and designs of the slipcover, so the look of your living room will vary. The bed which is called futon today has come to us from Japan. Although it has changed its form and look, something remains the same as it was centuries ago. The futon mattress is pretty firm. Thus today it is used for sitting at the daytime and an night it is unfolded to be used as a formal bed.
The construction of a sofa futon bed is very simple, and it costs less than a sofa. Changing the mattress and leaving the same frame is a great advantage of such a furniture unit. As a good futon mattress is offered at stores for a price which is $100 approximately, changing the bed unit for you will cost exactly this sum of money. You should not overpay anymore. The other sufficient plus of any futon mattress is its comfort – the unit is more convenient than the sofa.
Sitting on your sofa bed with futon mattress at the daytime and sleeping there at night is the same comfortable. The size of the futon bed (and the mattress) is the same as the formal mattress size except king size – twin, queen and full. So it may be used as a formal bed in a studio apartment as well. Depending on your taste and preferences you can choose the style of this bed unit – rustic log framed, modern or even antique.
