Buying a futon mattress is just like purchasing any other type of furniture in a store in the sense that you need to go through different factors that will help lead you to the best or most suitable choice for you to line up in front of the cash register with. Futon mattresses are basically measured in quality based on four different qualities. These qualities include flexibility, firmness, weight, and rigidity.

All of the qualities that I have mentioned above come in varying degrees on different futon mattresses. This is because these types of beds are also made from a variety of different materials and frames. In terms of futon frame, a futon mattress can be of two types namely a bi fold futon frame and a tri fold futon frame. Let’s begin looking at the different qualities. First off is flexibility. This quality is basically the one that defines the ease at which a certain futon mattress can be turned into a sofa and back to a bed. Futon mattresses with high degrees of flexibility are usually the ones that are advised to be used by people who would like to use both of the functions of these beds. Firmness on the other hand is the quality that is used to measure the comfort level of a futon mattress. In other words, this is what people use to determine the quality of comfort that a futon mattress can offer them.

The rigidity of a futon mattress is its ability to maintain its shape specifically on the edges when it is used. Rigidity is an important factor to consider especially if you’re going to use your futon mattress on a regular basis specifically as a sofa or couch. The rigidity of a futon mattress is sometimes used to determine its lifespan and durability.

Lastly, you need to have a look at the weight of the futon mattress that you’re going to buy as this factor will also play a role on the ease at which the bed can be transformed into a sofa and back.

Go through these factors carefully and choose a good futon company and you will surely bring home a good purchase.
