Futons are Japanese beds that easily go from a bed to a couch. They are a popular choice for their ability to turn a room from a bedroom into a living room. Here are a few pros and cons to help you decide if a futon is right for you.
- Pros – The first advantage of futons is their space saving ability. Futons are perfect for an apartment or smaller space, as they can be folded up into a couch when the bed is not needed. They are also an excellent option in larger rooms that you don’t want to commit to having as a full-time bedroom. Futons are also less expensive than most beds and couches. The look of your futon, and therefore your home, can be easily changed with a new mattress cover and some throw pillows. Lastly, due to the light weight and smaller size of futons, they can be easily moved when needed.
- Cons – Because of the convenient folding ability of futons, the mattress isn’t as thick as a tradition mattress. With some lower-quality futons, they can start to show some wear over time from being repeatedly transitioned from a bed to a couch.
