Full Futon, Twin Futon or Queen Futon
The Nature of Futon Frames
We’ve all had one, or at least handled one along the way. You wouldn’t think much about a futon unless you’ve had to choose one or use one. Turns out there are many details regarding futons…cost, comfort, ease of shipping or pickup, how to operate one, what kind is best, etc., etc…We’re here to help simplify your options.
The majority of futons are made and sold in a full size that will open up into a full size bed for sleep and double as a couch as needed (although they do come in other sizes). There are three things needed for a futon setup, regardless of size or style: the frame itself, the mattress that goes on the frame, and the cover that goes over the mattress. Here we’ll give you some insight into the frames.
How to Decide on a FUTON FRAME…Size then Style
It all boils down to size and style. The size depends on how much sleeping space you want the futon to provide. They run just like bed sizes. A Twin Futon will open up to be the equivalent of a Twin Size Bed (sleeping space being 38 x 75 Inches). A Full Size will open to be a sleeping space of 54 x 75 Inches, and a Queen Size to open up to be 60 x 80 Inches. The frame will exceed these dimensions by how wide or narrow the Armrest style is. So, once you know the size you like or want, you can focus on your style.
Shown here is the HIMALAYA style. This mission style futon is built to look and feel heartier (even bulkier) than some futons do, and the taller/ wider armrest seems to appeal to those who rely on a substantial armrest regularly. The slats provide an opportunity to show off the wood’s grain and create a barrier to keep your pillows in place. The armrest is 24.25-Inches high.
