A wide selection of futon mattresses is available, not just limited to the original 100% cotton mattresses. The cotton futon mattresses are the most uncomfortable and cost effective, which can only last a shorter time due to compaction and sagging. Therefore, they require more maintenance to last longer and are also very heavy and difficult to handle.
But there are more variants and modern designs of futon mattresses on the market today, such as:
Cotton and polyester futon mattresses:
This variety of polyester foam mattresses makes the futon firmer and increases strength and durability. You can reduce sagging to some extent and thus last longer.
Cotton and foam futon mattresses:
Different types of foam futon mattresses, such as cotton and laminated foam mattresses, as well as split density mattresses, can reduce the sagging and weight of the futon.
Cotton and Wool Futon Mattresses: This type of futon mattress made of wool creates more cushion that makes the futon mattress soft and comfortable. Slack and compression are significantly reduced by the use of wool and increased breathability.
Inner Sprung Futon Mattresses: These mattress types are the most expensive futon mattress types because they offer the best comfort. Although extremely comfortable, they have limitations such as less foldability when converting to a sofa and increased weight, making handling difficult.
