Q: Can a chair futon be used as a bed?
A: Yes, especially if you add an ottoman to the mix. The chair futon can accommodate a child in a comfortable sleeping position when its structure is folded out, but the ottoman makes it a more ideal sleeping space for an adult to stretch out on.
Q: Which futon sizes are the most popular ones?
A: The most readily available and popular are the full and the queen sizes, which are spacious enough to accommodate a few people comfortably when used as a sofa in the living room or in another spot in your house. These sizes also provide comfortable space for sleeping for friends and loved ones to enjoy when staying overnight in your place.
Q: Do I need to get an ottoman along with the futon?
A: It depends on your need. The ottoman works to extend the length of the futon so it will be an important component to make the sleeping area more comfortable to sleep on. The ottoman also serves as an extra seating area that can be placed away from the futon when it is not being used as a sleeping surface.
Q: What futon size is the most comfortable?
A: This will depend on who will use the futon and how it will be used. A chair futon can be a comfortable option for one person in a seated position and may be a relaxing sleeping spot for a child but may feel too cramped for an adult to sleep on. As the sizes go bigger, larger spaces are also offered by the futon for both seating and sleeping purposes that can bring enhanced comfort to more occupants.
Q: Which sizes are the most affordable?
A: The futons that usually have the lowest prices are the ones with the smallest sizes, such as the chair or the twin-sized options. These sizes allow you to maximize the available space with a piece of multipurpose furniture without spending too much for the experience.
Q: What futon size can be used daily as a comfortable sleeping area?
A: Depending on the materials used to construct the furniture, all futon sizes can be comfortable enough to be used daily. However, the full- and queen-sized futons may offer a higher level of comfort because of the larger sleeping surfaces, especially for the queen size that can be used as a bed regularly by 2 adults without feeling discomfort.
Q: What size should I choose for my living room?
A: It is important to measure the available space in your living room to ensure that the futon will fit in well without intruding on the space of the surrounding furniture and appliances but should also work well aesthetically by not looking too small or too big in the room. The right futon size should bring comfort as a seating and sleeping area while maximizing the space available in the room.
Q: Why are king-sized futons not that common?
A: Futons are built to be space-saving furniture pieces that offer multifunctional benefits. This is the reason why king-sized futons are not available because such a size will take up too much space in the room where it will be placed in and will defeat the goal of delivering the benefits of 2 furniture items in one product without eating up all the available floor space.
Q: What is the most suitable spot in the room setting up the futon?
A: Any spot in the room that can fit in the measurements of the futon and where it can be enjoyed by the occupants will be a great one for the futon. However, it is important to ensure that some space clearance is provided at the back and front portions of the futon to accommodate the furniture’s conversion into a bed, which involves stretching out the frame to form a flat sleeping surface, and then maybe the addition of an ottoman.
Q: Can a full-sized futon accommodate 2 adults for sleeping purposes?
A: Yes, but the sleepers may feel a bit cramped when sleeping on a twin-sized futon, depending on their body structure and comfort preferences. If you are looking for a futon that has enough space for 2 adults to sleep comfortably, it is better to choose the queen-sized option as it offers a more generous surface to stretch out on for all-night comfort.
