What is the difference between a futon and sofa bed?
You would be forgiven for not knowing the difference between a futon and a sofa bed; after all, they fulfil an almost identical role in your home. Both futons (with a frame) and sofa beds allow you to save space by doubling up as both a bed and seating area.
The main difference between sofa beds and futons is that a sofa bed looks indistinguishable from a regular sofa when the bed is packed away, whilst a futon uses a much more simplistic mechanism. This results in a more stripped-back appearance overall, where the folding mattress itself functions as both bed and seat.
Ultimately, futons are ideal for people who value minimal fuss and hassle, as they can be transformed into a mattress much quicker than a sofa bed. You also don’t have to worry about removing and replacing any sofa cushions. Futons are also typically much cheaper than their sofa bed counterparts, so if good value is your driving force, then a futon could be the perfect solution for your home.
