Types of Futon Mattresses
Whether you're refurbishing the guest room or sending Junior off to college, a futon is a simple, space-saving choice for a bed. Contrary to pop culture belief, there are plenty of futon mattresses that are comfortable for all types of people in all walks of life.
At JCPenney, we offer several types of futon mattresses including spring, foam, cotton, and cotton/foam hybrids. Spring futon mattresses resemble standard bed mattresses made with metal coils under a quilted layer. These types of futon mattresses remain firm through years of use, but are typically bulky and don't work well for a folding futon.
Foam futon mattresses are more comfortable than spring mattresses because they provide better overall support for all types of sleepers. They are more costly when compared to other futon mattresses — choosing a foam mattress may not be economical if it's not your daily sleeper.
Cotton futon mattresses are more common and are better than spring mattresses for futons you'll fold every day. This type of mattress folds easily and is lightweight, making them easier to move. Cotton mattresses don't last as long as other futon mattresses and aren't as supportive.
Cotton/foam hybrid mattresses combine the best of both worlds. This bed is more supportive and comfortable than plain cotton but isn't as inexpensive. Hybrid materials allow for longer life, and the price tag is fair for a daily mattress.
