Many people find that buying a bed for their guest room can be a bit expensive. Because of this, people usually turn to Futons. Futons can act as a couch during the day and turn into a bed at night. The one downfall is that Futon’s don’t always provide the most comfortable sleeping experience as everyday mattresses do. Here are a few ways in which you can make your Futon more comfortable.
Place a featherbed on top of the futon mattress
A featherbed is similar to a down comforter except you sleep on top of it rather than having it on top of you. Featherbeds add a soft and warm layer between the person and the futon mattress. They are usually divided into sections to keep the down from migrating to just one side of the bed.
Add extra support at the bottom of the mattress
When a futon is used often the futon mattress starts to sag down. When this happens you can sometimes feel the wooden slats underneath the futon, which causes discomfort while sleeping. Add a plywood sandwich or extra slats to the frame of the futon. This will help keep the mattress sturdier.
Add a memory foam mattress topper to the futon
Memory foam is a very popular way to make mattresses more comfortable and using them on a futon works just as well! Mattress toppers can easily be put and kept in place under the sheets on the futon. They can also easily be rolled up and put away during the day when your futon is folded back into its couch form.
Place an air mattress on top of the futon
Air mattresses are known for being very comfortable as long as the air does not deflate over-night. Since futons are usually thin and closer to the ground, putting an air mattress on top of the futon makes it a great height and a lot more comfortable. Buy an air mattress that is easy to inflate and deflate to make less work for yourself when setting up your futon for a guest.
Layer comforters on top of the futon
Layering comforters on top of your futon mattress is also a great way to add comfort and warmth to your futon.
