Are you looking to buy a futon sofa bed? You do not just want to settle for any futon sleeper sofa, you want the best futon bed for your needs. Select the style of your futon sofa bed frame. You want to choose a futon frame that matches the decor and style of your room. Standard frame types are wooden frames, metal frames and materials or curved frames. You can choose to choose a futon sofa that has no side frame, just a frame on the back.
Choose a powerful frame for your futon sofa bed. Not only do you want to look at style, but you also have to look at how strong the frame is. This is especially true if you plan to use a futon bed with children or if you plan to use it often. If the futon bed will only be in a side room that is not used often then it is less important.
Choose a good futon sofa bed mattress; some futon mattresses are very thin and cheaply made. Just choose these if you do not plan to use the bed often. The options include spring futon mattresses, foam futon mattresses and even memory foam futon mattresses. You can also choose the fibers your futon mattress is made of. Remember, you will use futon to sit on and sleep on, so find a mattress that is comfortable for both. If you are going to sleep on the futon mattress often, you should choose a high quality solid futon mattress, just as you do with the bed.
