Introducing the Futon Mattress

May 14, 2011

Have you ever heard of a futon mattress? If you haven’t, I’ll tell you all about it. If you already have, you could learn more about the many benefits it offers. A futon mattress is the kind of mattress traditional Japanese folks use. It’s not as thick and structurally firm as the mattress we grew up with. In fact, it sort of resembles a thick comforter that’s purposefully designed as a bed with no need of a bed frame, only a floor. The very clever thing about futons is that it’s very space-saving. You can use the space your bed occupies during the nighttime for something else during the daytime. That’s just one of the reasons why you should consider switching to a futon mattress.

When it's time to sleep and when it's time to save space

Affordable Space Saver

Another great thing about the futon mattress is that it’s not expensive. This is perfect if you’re a college dormer or someone who has limited living space, and of course, money. If you’ve ever been a college dormer, you know how cramped things could be, right? I can imagine those times when you’re forced to study sitting down on your bed, which is very bad for your posture. A decent bed set isn’t very cheap, and you know those beds that dorms come with aren’t anywhere near “decent.” A futon mattress be as affordable as around P2,000.00 or even less. And of course, during the daytime, you can keep the mattress folded somewhere so that you can use that extra space for studying.

Polyfoam Futon Mattress

The traditional futon mattress is made of pure cotton. But I’m warning you, cotton may not last as long as and be as comfortable and inexpensive as… oh… I don’t know, what’s the best material for any mattress? It’s polyfoam. It lasts long, it’s lightweight, it’s not expensive, it’s simply necessary for a comfortable sleep. So if you want to have the advantage of the space-saving futon with the comfort of a polyfoam mattress, I’ll give you a quick headstart in choosing one. I introduce to you one of Uratex’s foldable futon mattresses made with polyfoam – it’s the 3-Fold Mat.

As a polyfoam mattress, it has the characteristics of movement isolation, lightweight, support, firmness, body weight distribution, and of course, comfort. But why not get the best of both worlds? Since it’s a foldable futon mattress, you can save space with it but have the same comfort of a decent foam mattress as well!
