Their are a variety of types of futons which can be purchased according to material, size, and thickness. The most popular thickness variation for the futon mattress is 6 inches, 8 inches, and 9 inches prospectively. The thicker and plusher the foam the more comfort and enjoyment you can expect from your mattress. The futon mattress can also be cheaply purchased which will probably be less padded. The most comfortable supreme futon mattress will probably cost quite a bit more but usually not as much as a bed mattress.
The beauty of having a futon mattress is that it actually can save you quite a bit of money. Not only is it a cheaper option to the typical bed but also if you don’t already have a full size bed frame, you can use your full size futon mattress as a bed at night for resting and your futon sofa during the day for sitting and entertaining. This can be a permanent arrangement or a temporary one, depending on your needs.
