Futon Mattress Buying Guide  

 

How to choose your futon mattress
The best rule of thumb when purchassing a futon mattress is understanding your own preference. Some prefer more of a cushion comfort and others prefer more of a solid feel. Best way to figure out how soft or hard your futon mattress is is to try it out or by reading our reviews to find out what type of mattress you're signing up for.

 

Consider your sleeping position
If you sleep on your side, you may want a softer mattress where your shoulder sinks into the mattress so there's less pressure on your neck and spine. While sleeping on your back, you would actually need a firmer mattress to support your back and also have a contour top layer (e.g. elastic memory foam) to allow your spine to relax. And finally, for those who sleep on their bellies - you will need the firmest mattress as this will prevent strains to your neck.

Sleeping Positions

 

You get what you pay for
Thickness and interior materials of a futon mattress is a significant indication as to how comfortable and long lasting it will be. The price of the mattress do affect the durability and quality of the product, so it's a good tip to invest for your comfort - it's well worth it! The minimum thickness any mattress should be would be 6 inches, any less than that and you will find yourself with a bad back the next morning. Keep in mind also as to what type of usage you will need out of a futon mattress, the more hours you'll be spending on this futon mattress means the more you should pay for a long lasting product.

We generally encourage purchasing a futon mattress that consists of other materials other than just cotton. Synthetic materials such as foam and polyester is a popular choice as it supports the form of the futon mattress. Whereas cotton is an organic material that absorbs more moisture and sweat thus using up it's lifetime pretty quickly with mold and smell.

How to care for your futon 

 

Use a Futon Slip Cover
Protect your futon mattress with a slip cover. A slip cover helps prolong the life of a futon mattress by keeping it clean from mold and spills.

Slip Cover

 

Care for your Slip Cover
Do not put the slip cover in the dryer as there may be a chance of it shrinking, the best is to hang dry.

 

Change your futon mattress position
Change positions of your futon mattress about once a month so it gets evenly used, therefore you won't have uneven surfaces.
