Is a Futon Mattress Worth It?

Futon mattresses have been around for centuries and are a popular choice. They became mainstream in the 1970s when futons became popular in the US. The original mattress idea came from the authentic Japanese futon: the 'shikibuton', a thin cotton-filled mattress placed on a Tatami Mat directly on the floor.


These mattresses were rolled up daily, unrolled, and used for sleeping at night because homes were relatively small and families were large. Modern futon mattresses offer several benefits over regular mattresses, including being more comfortable and supportive.


Futons are also typically cheaper than regular mattresses, making them an excellent option for budget-minded shoppers.


There are lots of reasons that make a futon mattress worth having; here are a few:



Why choose a futon over a regular mattress?


Futon mattresses offer several advantages over regular bed mattresses, including comfort, support, value for money, transportability and style.


Futons are more comfortable. Futons are made with layers of cotton and other natural materials, making them breathable, softer and more comfortable than regular mattresses.


Futon mattresses are more supportive. Futons are firm, providing support for your back and body. Extra support can help to reduce pain and improve sleep quality.


MAXYOYO futon mattresses are typically cheaper than regular mattresses. Futons cost less to manufacture, so they are usually more affordable than traditional mattresses.


Futon mattresses are easier to move. Futons are lighter and smaller than regular mattresses, making them easy to transport. Easy to transport is especially helpful if you move home regularly or have guests to stay over.


Futon mattresses never go out of style. Futon mattresses have a superior design that never goes out of style. They are also available in various colours and fabrics to suit any décor.


What materials are used to make futon mattresses?


If you're considering a futon mattress, there are a few things to remember. Futon mattresses come in various materials, including cotton, wool, latex, and memory foam. Each type of material has its benefits and drawbacks, so investigate further before making a purchase.


We prefer material covers made from microfibre because they are more durable and easier to clean. It's best if the padded top layer is polyester because it is less likely to absorb moisture.


The middle layer should ideally be polyurethane foam to ensure comfort and support. Lastly, the base layer should be made from high-density foam to provide a solid foundation with a 100% polyester bottom cover for a perfect finish.

How can I keep my futon mattress clean?


To keep your futon mattress in good condition, it's essential to clean it regularly. Futon mattresses can be vacuumed or spot-cleaned with mild detergent. We recommend using a vacuum attachment with a soft brush to avoid damaging the material.


To spot-clean your mattress, use a mild detergent and blot the area with a damp cloth. Avoid rubbing or scrubbing the area too hard, as this could damage the material. Once you've cleaned the site, dry it thoroughly before using the futon again.


What size futon mattress should I choose?


Futon mattresses come in a range of sizes, from single to king-size. Your size will depend on your space and how many people will use the futon.


If you need help deciding which size to choose, we recommend measuring your room and checking the futon frame dimensions before purchasing.

Do I need a particular Futon frame?


No, you don't need a futon frame; a regular bed frame will do just fine. Futon mattresses can be placed directly on the floor if you prefer. In fact, Japanese futon mattresses work better placed directly on the floor.


They look stylish and can be stored away, vital for those who live in small apartments or move regularly.


How often should I replace my futon mattress?


If you use your futon every day, we recommend replacing it every 3-5 years. However, if you use it occasionally, it could last up to 10 years.


How do I keep my futon mattress clean?


To keep your futon mattress clean, we recommend vacuuming it regularly and spot-cleaning any spills with a mild detergent. You can also use a futon protector or a throw to help keep it clean.


Futon protectors are made from hardwearing, durable material that is easy to clean. They fit snugly over the mattress and zip up, keeping it clean and protected from wear and tear.
