Several Reasons behind the Popularity of Futon Bunk Beds
Futon bunk beds have come a long way from college dorms and small apartments.
Futon bunk beds quickly became popular because of their functionality. Later, someone came up with the idea of lifting it up off the floor and creating a foldable support that would be used as sofa by day and transform into a mattress by night.
If you’re thinking of buying futon bunk beds as a space-saving solution, here’s what you’ll need to note.
First, let’s look at the frame. A good quality futon bunk beds is made of wood, with the support slats lined up close together. This way, the mattress won’t be squeezed between the slats resulting in discomfort for your back. Knowing where you will use the futon helps you choose the frame. Some models have to be placed away from the wall in order to serve as a bed.
Good quality futon bunk beds come with higher quality mattresses. Originally, all those mattresses were very heavy. They were filled with only cotton and weighed up to eighty pounds. Although you can still find the all cotton variety, the modern daybed mattress is usually filled with a poly-cotton blend and weigh in between thirty and fifty pounds. This allows for superior support and softness without all the weight.
When it comes time to dressing up your daybed, remember that the choices are unlimited if you have chosen a neutral frame. The mattress can be covered with futon covers made of any number of materials from cotton to silk, and the material can be matched to your decorating choices. A more popular choice with today’s consumers is the leather or faux leather futon cover.
