Day Bed Details. If you have somewhat limited space or want to use the space you have in a multi-functional manner, then choosing a day bed would be an ideal option – particularly if you plan to use the day bed more so for sleeping than for sitting. Since a day bed includes an actual mattress it will also undoubtedly provide the most comfortable sleeping surface from the available day bed, sleeper sofa, and futon options.
There are three main styles of futon frames as well, the bi-fold, tri-fold, and loveseat frame. The bi-fold frame most closely resembles a standard sofa or couch and is constructed of two connected slat racks – the one that is used for sitting and the other that forms the back of the futon or back rest. To change the futon from a "couch" to a "bed" one simply has to pull the back portion down by pulling on the lower portion of the frame. Bi-fold futons use the length of the mattress as the sofa/couch and thus provide the most seating/sitting area. A tri-fold (or A-Frame) futon employs a tri-fold style mattress. The "unused" third portion of the mattress can then be folded under the main seating area when used as a couch or hung over the back rest portion of the futon when used as a couch. Tri-fold futons use the width portion of the mattress for "couch sitting" so there is essentially less sitting space although they still can provide ample double or queen-size sleeping surfaces. The loveseat style frame is made for a two-piece type futon mattress for twin or double bed-sized futons. The loveseat style frame is like the tri-fold frame in that the width of the mattress is used for the sofa seating area and again, is superb for smaller spaces.
These sofas are available in sizes of twin, double and queen size. Loveseats, which comfortably seat 2 people, can fold out into a single or twin size bed that will sleep 1 person comfortably. Regular size sofas can be opened into either a double or queen size bed, depending on the size of the sofa.
