Choose The Right Size Bed
The type and level of use you anticipate for your futon will determine the type of frame to best suit your needs. Futon frames generally come in two broad varieties: folding frames and stationary platform beds. Folding futons are designed to fold in half or thirds and can be used as both a sofa or as a bed. They make excellent guest beds, and can also be used as a primary sleeping surface for the budget-conscious. Bed futons are specially designed to replace a traditional box spring and mattress on a platform bed.
Platform Bed Sizes
Single and Twin size mattresses are the same, and are usually used for kids' rooms or solitary sleepers.
Full and Double size mattresses are the same. Double beds are only 15" wider than twins, which may not be adequate for 2 adults.
Queen size mattresses are our most popular size for platform beds. The 60" width comfortably accommodates most adults.
King size is an excellent choice when maximum personal sleeping space is the goal. This is the widest standard bed available, providing enough room for 2 large adults, plus the family dog!
