There are so many choices when it comes to the types of beds, sheets, blankets, comforters, etc. you can buy. It’s one thing if you are looking for such items for yourself, whether it is for your personal bed or a guest room. But, something strange happens when you start shopping for your child. All of a sudden, you start to think about how cute or how cool the bed needs to be. You also think about the off-gassing of the materials and the paint choices, colors and materials of the bed frame itself.
You can actually get a traditional style of frame and use a futon mattress bed instead of the other. You just have to ensure that the sizes will match up, of course. This can be a little tricky unless you measure carefully before hand. There are many styles of beds that are designed for children that you could use a futon mattress with.
Even bunk beds can accommodate a child-sized futon bed. This is a bit of a contemporary looking bunk, but you could just as easily find a match for a white bunk bed or other painted or unfinished bunk frame.
In the end, it really comes down to your tastes and the way you want your child’s room to look. After they are done playing all day, they just need a comfortable way to rest their little heads. If you find that the size is right, then you can get that futon mattress bed to be a perfect answer to the sleep equation.
Remember, kids could probably sleep in a sleeping bag on a pile of rocks or sticks and have no problems going to sleep or waking up feeling totally refreshed.
This simply isn’t the case with you or I. But, this doesn’t mean your child doesn’t deserve a really fun room to sleep and grow up in. I remember my first bed. It was a twin mattress which was probably a hand-me-down from someone else in the family. Didn’t bother me one bit. I slept just fine. But, think about what we know now compared to then. The materials that the mattresses are made of now are much healthier overall because many people have found that they are sensitive either to the chemicals or allergens present in the mattresses themselves.
A futon mattress doesn’t necessarily solve this problem because they can contain some of these same harmful or even toxic agents unless you shop carefully. Luckily, the internet has solved much of this dilemma for us. Now, you don’t have to pollute the air as much looking for that perfect mattress for your child by driving all over town. In addition to the comfort of a futon for your child, there are also other benefits. For example, futon covers come in a variety of designs and patterns that are perfect for a kid’s room. You can find all sorts of prints from your child’s favorite characters. This makes certain aspects of making your child’s bed that much easier for you as well.
