About Futon Covers
Futon covers are a decorative casing used to protect your futon mattress, to personalize the appearance of your futon mattress with different color and texture options, or to just update the look of your futon. It is an essential and cost effective way to protect your futon mattress during everyday use. Not only do Futon slipcovers protect your mattress, but they can accentuate style and décor in any room making decorating easy and fun. Fabrics used to produce futon covers vary by grades. They can be sewn from fine chenilles, microfiber suede and cotton, just to name a few. These grades will have a bearing on the cost of your futon cover. There are thousands of options and styles to choose from. Generally, futon mattress retailers will offer a wide selection of slipcover types and some may offer custom sizes as well. Most slipcovers are reasonably priced and vary widely in color, texture and pattern. You are sure to find the one that expresses your individual taste and lifestyle.
With all of these options to choose from, it may be overwhelming narrowing down the right slipcover for your needs. A basic tip on choosing the right slipcover is to consider the room that your futon is going to be used in. For a high traffic area, you want a more durable darker colored fabric, possibly with patterns to mask any potential stains, especially if you have children or pets. A microfiber or vinyl cover may be better suited to this environment as they are both easy to clean and durable. Knowing how your futon will be used, (i.e. in a high traffic area such as a living room or in a spare bedroom or home office) will help to narrow down the right type of futon slipcover to fit your needs.
