Popular IKEA Futons Frame Design
Quality IKEA futons frames are rugged and have lots of cross stag. Without the mattress in place, a good frame will still feel significant. Avoid very light frames made of just a few pieces of aluminum pipes as these tubes tend to bend and even crack off at the welding points under compulsion. Frames of solid wood are far superior. These frames will be able to resist abuse, like children jumping on futon without breaking. The frame should not swing side to side when pushing or moving; it should remain rigid. All futon frame easily pushed out of the square is bad cross staged and will not be very long.
Good futon looks good furniture. They have style and have nice woods and new features like wide armrests that can double as the end table in a pinch. Cheap futon is not attractive and does not seem to be designed for use by real people. Some futon frames come with the ability to be clicked in different seating positions.
These designs are big but see the mechanism allowing the futon to be lowered completely into a sleeping position. Some multi-position futon does not fold down all the way or have annoying elevations on the ends that interfere with sleep. Calculate if the folding down position of the futon will work in your space.
