One of the biggest advantages of having a futon is customization. The endless options not only apply to comfort and feel, but looks as well. Buying the right futon cover is just as important as buying the right futon. Otherwise, if you don’t do your research, you may end up with something like this:
Of course, you could be a die-hard Georgia Bulldog fan, or maybe your futon sits right in front of your aquarium. In this case, the choice is quite easy.
At the end of the day, most customers prefer a solid color over a patterned design. However, when it comes to the type of fabric, you definitely want to know exactly what you’re getting before you decide to complete your futon setup.
At Shop4Futons, we offer four different types of futon covers that serve a diverse range of preferences. Here is a quick explanation of each style, to ensure you know what you’re getting:
Premium Futon Cover – Our widest-selling futon cover is also one of our most cost-effective and durable. The Premium Futon Cover is a blend of heavyweight polycotton and consists of 55% cotton and 45% polyester. The feel of this material is most similar to the feel of cotton dockers or khakis, but thicker and more firm. If you’re looking for a durable cover that has a little give to it, you’ve found your cover already!
Designer Futon Cover – This type of cover consists of heavyweight cotton twill fabric. You’ll find the feel of this material similar to our Premium Futon Cover, but the colors will vary depending on availability.
100% Cotton Futon Cover – It’s certainly our most cost-effective item, but 100% lightweight cotton doesn’t carry as many features as our other covers. This fabric is a bit heavier than your average bed sheet, and while it’s machine washable and certainly just as durable, it’s not for interior designers. If you’re looking for the best price, but really just want to protect your futon mattress, you won’t find a softer and more reliable cover.
Plush Micro-Suede Futon Cover – Micro-suede is possibly the most sought-after fabric for futon covers. The material feels a lot like velvet, and also consist of corded piping along the edges to give your futon mattress a more consistent shape. If you’re going for the most unique feel and best quality for home décor, the Micro-Suede futon cover is basically a necessity.
