Futon is the Japanese word for blanket. In the broadest sense, the sleeping place is used in Japan. Traditionally, the futon is divided into the sleeping pad and the duvet.

During the day, the futon is stowed in the closet.

In the Western world, the futon refers rather to a low bed frame with a lying mattress, which is supposed to imitate the "as close as possible to the floor". The mattress itself is thinner and comes very close to the Japanese futon.

What makes a good futon, what are the differences between futon and "normal" mattress and which slatted base is best, you can read all this here.


What makes a good futon?

If you decide to buy a futon, you should consider the following aspects.

• As with any other mattress, the futon should be comfortable and comfortable. This means that it should not be too hard and not too soft so as not to strain the back in one direction or the other.

• The mattress should be strong. If you share your bed with someone, you should make sure that both of you can have a good nights sleep. This also applies if you want to use the futon as a guest bed; it should be comfortable for people of any physique.

• Also, the size should be such that one or two people can easily find space on it.

• The price-performance ratio is very good for futon beds and mattresses. Be sure to check for quality products that will last a long time.


The difference between futon and conventional mattress

The main difference lies in the construction or structure.

A conventional mattress consists of a single or multi-layer core and a quilted cover. The core is responsible for the carrying capacity, the reference for the regulation of the climate, ie moisture and heat. A multi-layered core is usually glued together, while a multi-layered futon reference is only interconnected at some points. The futon structure simultaneously ensures load-bearing capacity and climate regulation. A futon usually consists of natural fibers that are compressed when lying down. This creates a natural stability.

You should always pay attention to the volume when buying. This can be found in the packaging or product description. If the natural fibers of the futon are compressed too much, this has a negative effect on sleeping comfort. The fibers are often made of cheap material and can cure after a few weeks.


The selection of the right slatted frame

Who wants to adjust the Japanese futon experience as real as possible, should do without bedstead and slatted frame. However, if you prefer to incorporate the European idea of ​​futon into your bedroom or guest room, you are faced with choosing the right slatted base. Meanwhile, there are bedsteads and slatted frames in futon style, which have corresponding matching components.

However, if the slatted frame has to be replaced, you should, as with any other bed, necessarily know the dimensions of your bed. Also pay attention to whether the frame has longitudinal or transverse support strips. It should also be noted that a futon bed has a low inlet height, so the slatted frame should not be too thick.

Especially slatted frames are suitable for futon beds. They are relatively cheap to obtain and can be rolled out quickly and easily, since the slats are connected with a belt.
