Choose a DHP futon as the centerpiece of your living room and make it your favorite couch. This hybrid furniture can serve as a sofa during the day and even double as a sleeping pad for a quick nap. At night, it converts into a spare bed for occasional visitors. Staples carries a wide selection of these sofa beds from DHP and other premium brands.
Choose the Right Frame and Mattress for Your DHP Futon First, decide between wood and metal frames. Wood frames look warm and have a timeless aesthetic most suitable for traditional decors. Metal frames are lighter and just as durable. They are ideal for contemporary and modern home designs. If you prefer the natural look and texture of wood, make sure to get a futon with a hardwood frame. This is sturdier than those made from softwoods, wood composites and particleboard.
Besides frame, the mattress is the other key part of a futon bed. Depending on the intended use of this transforming furniture, you can choose a cotton/foam, innerspring or memory foam mattress. Innerspring and memory foam are more comfortable for sleeping. Cotton/foam mattresses combine light weight with a balance between flexibility and rigidity. Cotton is a breathable material that traps warmth when it is cold and cools down quickly on hot days.
Special Features to Look For in Multifunctional Futons DHP and other leading manufacturers of high-end futons sometimes differentiate their products with unique features that make them more versatile. For example, there are futon beds with pull-out drawers built into their frames. These serve as storage drawers where users can keep items like bedding and books. Other features that extend the functionalities of futons include laptop trays built into armrests and fold-down drink holders integrated into seatbacks. These additional parts redefine the purpose of futons beyond their primary roles as furniture for sitting, lounging and sleeping.
What Is a Split Futon? A split futon has a seatback divided into two. You can keep one side upright while the other lies flat. Thanks to this versatility, it is possible to create a sectional with two split futons. Changing the configuration of this type of sofa-bed is easy. There is a built-in click clack mechanism used to transform it from a couch to a lounge to a bed. This requires simply pulling the DHP futon from the front to its desired position where it clicks into place.
What Is the Difference Between Bifold and Trifold Futons? The difference between these futons lies in their frame designs. A bifold frame has two sections and folds once as it transforms from bed to couch. A trifold model has three sections and folds twice. The trifold is the original futon frame but the bifold design is now more popular because it is simpler. It is also easier to operate since it uses a system of rollers to slide from one configuration to another.
Should You Get a Futon With Leather Upholstery? Leather upholstery looks classic and gives furniture a distinctive premium aesthetic. However, it stains easily and will crinkle quickly with repeated folding. Faux leather is a more practical upholstery choice. It looks and feels like real leather but has a non-porous surface that is easy to wipe clean and spill-resistant.
