Futons are perfect for studio apartments, guest rooms, and many other places, thanks to their dual-usage design. Finding the right mattress is key to getting the most use out of your futon, and since it has to be used as both a seating cushion and a traditional mattress, there are lots of things to consider. Here are some of the things to keep in mind when selecting a mattress for a futon.  

Start by considering how often your futon will be used as a bed as opposed to seating. If you’ll only be using it as a bed occasionally, focus more on the feel of the mattress for seating rather than sleeping. The thickness of the mattress will partially depend on the look of the futon itself, as a thick mattress looks better on a substantial, solid furniture base, and thin mattresses look better on modern, sleek designs. A mattress cover is a good addition to enhance the appearance of your futon and protect the mattress itself.
