Bed and Couch: 6 Benefits of a Futon in a Small Studio

Staff Writer · Oct 1, 2010

Futons allow you to sleep in comfort despite being in a tiny space. You can convert a futon into a bed to lie down in, or you can fold it up into a couch to lounge on. It functions as a bed or couch, and can be very useful in a small studio apartment. Here are some benefits you can get from futons.

1. Futons Save Space

For small places like studio apartments, you need to find a way to organize all of your things efficiently. Futons make it possible to have a bed and couch in one little corner of the studio out of the way. If you have other things that you need to move into the studio, you won’t have to worry about having to get a big bed to fit inside with all of your other things.

2. Using a Futon Saves You Money

Buying a futon is less expensive than buying a bed and a couch separately. You would be better off spending that money on other apartment needs. Since a futon is a bed and couch rolled all in one, it gives you more uses for less money.

3. Easy to Store

When you are in between moves, a regular mattress can be a hassle to store away. Futons are smaller and can be stored easily. If you are moving to a new location, it will be easy to take it with you and put in storage until it’s needed for your new apartment.

4. Futons Are Comfortable

Many people think that futons are cheap because they are made out of rough cotton material. It is actually as soft as a regular bed if you buy the right one. The very cheap ones are no good, so try to purchase one that’s still affordable but made from better materials. If you want to buy a futon at a furniture store, make sure that it is comfortable for you before purchasing it.

5. Decorative Use

Even though futons are very practical, they can add a decorative touch to your small studio apartment. If you get the right kind of futon to accent your decorating scheme, they can give your studio a finishing touch, in addition to their great uses and benefits. You can make your studio look bright and comfy with a colorful futon.

6. Easy to Transport

Futons are smaller than traditional beds, so they’re much easier to transport. It won’t be as hard as moving a bed and a couch separately. You won’t have to pay a moving company as much it because it’s lighter and smaller than a bed.

With a bed and couch in one, it’s easy to do things in comfort. When you are in a small studio apartment, a futon is even better because it saves space. A futon is also much less expensive. Instead of trying to fit a bulky couch and an even bigger bed in small studio, use something that’s actually possible and efficient.
