FAQs: Futon Frames

How do you get a futon mattress to stay on its frame?

The futon frame must have a support system for the mattress. Frames are designed to hold the thickness of the futon mattress plus an additional 6 inches. This insures that your bed will not collapse. The proper support system must be in place to hold the weight of the mattress and sleeper. Drawers are not intended for use with mattresses because they do not have enough clearance under them to support it properly.

Where should I get my frame from?

Traditionally, frames were made out of wood or metal, but today you can find many different materials being used, including steel, plastic, and other composites. Some retailers may offer discounts when you purchase both a mattress and frame together as a set, while others sell items separately.

What type of mattress does futon frame work best?

There are many different types and styles that work well with futon frames, but the standard "all-purpose" futon mattress is probably your best option for use in a frame. The thickness will vary; some run 4 inches thick, while others may be 8 to 12 inches thick. You can also purchase a premade pad or pillow top to place on top of the mattress, which also makes it more comfortable and adds to the overall look and feel of futons. Foam padding will add additional softness and cushioning; pillow tops offer a fluffier sleeping surface. Futon pads made from cotton batting can provide an organic style that's perfect for those who want simplicity.

How long does a futon frame last?

Futon frames are designed to hold the mattress, plus an additional 6 inches. The proper support system must be in place to hold the weight of the mattress and sleeper. Drawers are not intended for use with mattresses because they do not have enough clearance under them to support it properly.

Are futon frames good for your back?

Many people who suffer from back problems find that sleeping on a futon helps their aches and pains by keeping their spine aligned while they sleep. Since you can adjust both the angle and height of your body while lying on a futon, it's easier for most people with aches and pains to get comfortable when using this type of bedding. It also provides increased cushioning throughout the mattress, which is good for your back.

Are all futon frames the same size?

Futon frames are available in standard sizes, but because futons are so flexible, you can find many different styles of bedding that come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. If your frame is too small or too large for your mattress, you may have problems with it fitting correctly. It's best to measure the size of your existing futon frame before heading out to purchase a new one to be sure that it will work well with the style of futon you own.

What does it mean for a futon frame to be "commercial-grade"?

Commercial grade means that the frame has undergone more rigorous testing than standard products; this guarantees superior strength and durability. Commercial-grade frames usually last longer than standard models because they're more durable and built to withstand heavy use.

What size futon is best for small spaces?

Because futons are so flexible, many people choose to use them as sofa beds in smaller apartments or rooms where they don't have as much space to spare. For those who need a twin-size bedding area, standard full-size frames can be used with twin-sized mattresses. However, you may run into problems if your mattress is too big for the frame. Special "space saver" frames and mattresses exist that work well in tight quarters and won't take up too much room like a conventional set will do.

Are there any special considerations I must make when buying a frame?

You should check that any futon frame you're considering has a certificate of compliance from the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association. This organization tests all types of products for safety and quality, so it's important to ensure that your new bedding is certified by this group.

Buying a mattress and a futon frame together as a set can save you some money on your purchase, but if they aren't being offered at a discount, then you may want to consider buying them separately in order to get just what you need. You have more flexibility when choosing these two items separately because there are many different types and styles of both available on today's market.

Do futon frames come in colors?

Some companies offer frames in black or brown, but not all manufacturers have this option. Mattresses are available in a wider range of colors, however, so it's easy to find one that matches your existing decor. When you choose the type of bedding you want to buy, make sure that you take color choices into consideration; it may be helpful if you decide on several options before purchasing anything. This will help ensure that any new purchase will blend well with your home or apartment décor without looking out of place.

Do I need storage space for my futon frame?

Many types of futons can double as sofa beds, which means they occupy floor space when they're opened up for use. Having a place to store the bedding when you're not using it is important, so look for futon frames that have built-in storage options or ones that allow you to purchase extra space to tuck away your mattress; this will help keep your floor clear of clutter and provide easy access to additional seating if necessary.

How do I maintain the futon frames?

During regular use, it's helpful to keep your futon clean and free from debris that can cause damage or ruin the fabric. You should vacuum your mattress regularly to pick up lint and other loose particles, and pay close attention to the corners of the bedding since these are areas where dirt builds up easily.

To help prevent damage, be sure to avoid using a power washer when cleaning any type of futon frame; a gentle garden hose will suffice in most cases. Most types of bedding require little maintenance beyond this basic routine, but you may need to have repairs done if you notice fraying or fading on your mattress.

How do I assemble my new futon frame?

When opening your futon for use, you should check the instructions included with your shipment to make sure you have all of the necessary parts and tools for assembly. While many futon frames can be assembled without any special knowledge or prior experience, it's a good idea to read through the manufacturer's directions thoroughly before getting started; this way, you can avoid wasting time trying to put bedding together incorrectly.

In general, most futon frames are easy to assemble on your own if you follow set-up instructions carefully. If there are any complex components or pieces that fit together in unusual ways, you may want to get help from a friend who has had experience setting up similar types of bedding before.

There are also some variations between different manufacturers' models—some require more tools and components than others. If you're skilled with carpentry tools, you can often save yourself money by purchasing the frame pieces separately from the mattress and assembling them according to your own needs.

What are the types of futon frames?

When shopping for a new bedding set, you can choose from several different types of futon frames. Some common varieties include:

Wall-hugger Futon

This type of frame does not require any additional assembly and fits flush against your walls.

Fold-away Futon

These models collapse into their storage compartments or open up flat; platform futon beds are most commonly made with wooden slats that fit together to provide support.

Metal Adjustable Base

These designs come with multiple height options and usually offer the greatest degree of customization overall.

What materials are used in making futon frames?

Futon manufacturers make frames out of a variety of materials depending on the desired style and function of each product line. Some of the most popular materials used in making futon bedding include:

Wood

Typically the least expensive option, this material is durable and easy to work with. It can also be stained or painted to match your home décor.

Metals

Futon frames made out of steel are extremely durable, often have adjustable bases, and come in a variety of sizes. They're not very customizable but give you great durability for your money. Frames made from aluminum are lightweight yet sturdy; they don't rust or corrode when exposed to moisture, so metal futon frames are particularly good for coastal areas where salt spray can cause damage to other types of bedding.

Plastic/Resin

Lightweight and relatively affordable, these materials are also easy to clean and maintain. not particularly long-lasting or adaptable

Foam

While there's not a lot of variety in terms of design, futon bedding made from foam typically offers good value for money; it can be easily customized to fit your needs by purchasing thicker padding material. The downside is that the bedding may need to be replaced more frequently than other types since foam breaks down quickly when exposed to heat and moisture. You should also avoid putting this type of bedding in direct sunlight, as it can cause stress fractures and discoloration over time.
