Futon Cushion – A futon is a bed that turns into a sofa, or a sofa that turns into a bed, depending on how you look at it. A futon consists of two parts: the frame and the mattress. The futon mattress is usually a single piece, which was referred to as a mattress. Making your own futon mattress can save you money and gives you the ability to customize the mattress for your own preferences. Lay the flat futon structure. Measure the dimensions of the structure to determine which size foam to buy. Purchase the foam of your choice, match the dimensions of the structure. Foam suitable for a mattress comes in many options: latex, foam rubber and memory foam. Latex is a natural product, so it tends to be preferred by environmentally conscious people.
Latex is also very expensive, especially 100% natural latex. Memory foam is known for its comfort and accessibility futon cushion, but some people complain that the memory foam absorbs heat and gets warm when it slept on. Others complain that memory foam has an odor, which generally disappears over time. Foam rubber varies in price and quality, some types of more firm and expensive foam rubber can last for 20 years, while the less expensive foam rubber tends to be compressed and less comfortable faster. Test your foam mattress. Lay and sit on it. If you plan to sleep on the mattress and the mattress is not comfortable enough, buy a mattress by the top of the mattress. Purchase two lengths of heavy fabric to fit over the mattress.
Choose a pattern or solid color that matches the color scheme and decor of the room. Remember that pattern will be harder to work with because you will want to match the edges of the patterns from one side of the mattress to another. To determine the size of the heavy fabric, begin with the width and height of the futon cushion mattress. Add to these dimensions, the thickness of the mattress, to accommodate for the area where the fabric will cover the sides of the mattress. Finally, add another 2 inches to these dimensions to accommodate the seams.
