If you have a guest room, it is sensible to consider whether you want to have a futon in it or not. Some would like to style it with a separate bench and a bed, others prefer to have a futon which covers both needs. It depends on a few factors which option you would rather opt for. In this article, we will guide you through your decision process.
- The size of the room can make the decision for you
- Decide what the room is going to be used for
- A futon is not equal to a bad night’s sleep
The size of the room can make the decision for you
Most of the homes do not have an overload of space. If this is the case, buying a futon is an excellent choice. This way the space will be less occupied which makes it easier to move around in the room during the day. On the other hand, not buying a separate couch and bed saves money. If you do have that extra space, buying a separate bed and couch can give that extra coziness.
Decide what the room is going to be used for
If you would like your guestroom to be a multi-purpose room, go for a futon. This way you can use the room during the day as a reading spot, a gaming or play area, and so forth. The room will still be available for use when there is no one staying at your place. When you have an overnight visitor, you can easily transform the room into a cozy guestroom.
A futon is not equal to a bad night’s sleep
Often, people worry that a futon will not be as comfortable as a regular bed. It really depends on the futon you choose. Most futons are super comfortable, especially when you don’t go for the cheapest option. Besides, a little investment can be worth it, because futons are super durable these days and more resistant to bedbugs compared to regular beds.
