We strongly recommend that if you are looking for bedding for everyday use for an adult, that you opt to buy a mattress set instead if possible. Our futon mattresses are high quality, but for the money you will always be able to buy a more comfortable and longer lasting regular mattress set than you will find with a futon.
Most people want to purchase a metal futon. Here are 4 reasons why you should reconsider:
- If one of the bars at the bottom or on the back bend or break, you can’t fix it or replace it.
- Wooden futons are generally found to be more comfortable.
- The quality of construction is generally much better with wood than metal.
- Metal futons usually come with 4″ mattresses. But when you purchase a wooden futon from Earl’s, you can choose from either an 8 inch foam or coil mattress. One of our manufacturers also offers an 8 inch mattress that is covered with different fabrics and with optional throw pillows.***If you choose the 8 inch mattress (foam or coil), you could purchase a zip-up mattress cover but these can be difficult to remove and replace when cleaning. Some covers are dry clean ONLY. Instead, Earl’s suggests buying a nice Full Size fitted sheet and a couple of throw pillows to dress up your futon.
