Futon Slipcover and Pillow Sizes
When choosing to purchase a futon slipcover and pillows, there are many options to consider. A few options include, color, material, or synthetic versus organic fabric, to name a few. The first and most important option when selecting a futon slipcover is the size.
Futon covers will come in different sizes and thicknesses. Some futon mattresses may not conform to standard mattress sizes, so be sure to check the actual dimensions of your mattress versus that of the slipcover. If your mattress falls within an inch or two of the futon slipcover size, it should fit. The most common futon mattress slipcovers sizes are: Full 54” x 75”, Queen 60” x 80”, Twin 39” x 75”, Loveseat 54” x 54”, Loveseat Ottoman 21” x 54”, Chair 28” x 54” and Chair Ottoman 21 x 28”. Loveseat futon mattresses are typically 2 piece mattresses, so be sure to check that futon slipcover you are purchasing includes both the cover for the body of the mattress well as the ottoman.
The slipcover thickness or loft is another consideration. With all of the different types of mattresses on the market ranging from your basic cotton mattress all the way up to latex and wool, the thicknesses vary from 5 inch thickness up to as much as 11 inches. Be sure you check with the seller what the loft is of the slipcover you are purchasing. Most standard slipcovers come with a 6-8 inch loft, which will accommodate most futon mattresses.
Decorative Throw Pillows come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes. The three main shapes are square, rectangular, and cylindrical (bolster). Smaller throw pillows, such as the 15"x15" square are ideal for smaller futon frames our couches and are more often than not, used purely for decoration. Larger throw pillows can be used as back, foot, or seat support cushions. 20" square cushions may be used.
Usually you can buy a futon slipcover or pillow cover where you buy your futon mattress, whether it’s off the shelf or customized to fit.Which Futon Slipcover Fabric is Right For Me?
