A version to which we are accustomed and which abounds in shops has joined the eastern bed, which almost everyone called futon. Dorm room futon is attached to a thin mattress that pulls a quilt at night and placed on the mat when bedtime comes. When the day, this set is folded and stored in a closet to make room to spare. So that the filling is not caking due to moisture, generally aerated occasionally
The Western lifestyle does not conceive the bedroom with a removable, so dorm room futon has been reinterpreted. In addition, our soil is not as soft as Japanese tatami houses, but usually ceramic or wood, so we use a mattress. To bridge these two points, futons sold in Europe usually have added to tatami mattress structure, with or without legs, making the bed in a fixture.
Dorm room futon are also sold in conjunction with a collapsible frame with wooden slats. This is a kind of sofa bed that can come in handy for an emergency, but little benefit to your health if you use a long time. If you have no choice but to opt for this alternative, monitors unless the mattress thickness is greater than usual and filling the same combine latex and cotton.
