If your futon is a main part of your living room furniture, taking some extra precautions to keep the cover in good condition is a great idea. The basic mattress cover is non-removal on most futons and adding a casing is the perfect way to add longevity. A futon casing can be coloured or patterned or in a number of speciality fabrics such a chenille or suede, making it an ideal way to further personalise your futon with a colour and feel that makes it unique to your room design.
Having a futon for your main sleeping option may sometimes be from necessity rather than design.

Also there’s the modern phenomenon of older adults living in the family dwelling and when these factors come into play there’s a requirement for greater flexibility than ever before. Single room living really takes on a new meaning.
How you sleep and how well rested you are can have a huge impact on your day to day life and sense of well-being, so it is important to maximise your potential to sleep well in bed and be comfortable overnight. Environment is a key factor in helping your body recognise sleep signals, so take time to create the perfect sanctuary for your rest hours.
