Where can you find the best Futons? Futons are a very common piece of furniture in numerous households. They have become so popular because of their functionality, comfort, price and size. If you are looking for a couch/bed combo for any room, a futon could be for you. They are perfect for apartments, lofts, kid's rooms, small spaces, living rooms - the options are endless.

A futon is generally described as a soft mattress on a configurable frame that can be folded in half for a couch or laid out flat for a bed. There are three main parts to a futon. The frame, the mattress and the mattress cover. Futon frames are most commonly made from metal or wood or a combo of both. Futon mattresses are generally made of mostly cotton. Sometimes a layer of foam is added to sustain the form of the mattress.

Cymax

CYMAX Visit Site

Cost:

Starting from $100

Cymax is one of the fastest growing online furniture retailers selling over 75,000 home and office furniture pieces. Cymax offers customers factory direct furniture at competitive prices. Futons comprise a small portion of their website, selling less than 100 different models and looks. If you are looking for a large selection, this might not be the futon store for you.

The Cymax website is designed to easily navigate through their selection of futons. Their main options are width, price, type and size. But if you are looking for even more detailed selections, they offer additional filters. These are all of the filters available on Cymax when looking for a futon:

  • Width
  • Price
  • Type (convertible sofa, frame only, futon/mattress, futon with storage
  • Size (full, queen, loveseat, chair)
  • Style (modern, mission, traditional, transitional)
  • Frame Finish (black, white, chrome, wood)
  • Frame (wood, metal)
  • Upholstery Color
  • Upholstery Material (leather, vinyl, microfiber, etc)
  • Brand
  • Finish Color

Once you have selected the perfect futon you can view a nice size photo of the product, zoom in/zoom out and get a lot more detailed information. The website offers product features, product specifications and brand details. Check out the futon reviews and see how quickly the product will ship to your home. If you need customer support, call the phone number listed next to your product or email Cymax. Most products ship free and they advertise that all items can be purchased tax free (except in VA and Canada).

Prices on Cymax are very reasonable - they advertise that they are warehouse based and have cut out the middle man to keep prices low. There are no Cymax retail stores. They do offer frame only futons which is nice if you already have a mattress. For those that don't have a mattress, its an additional cost to purchase a futon mattress and they aren't cheap. So, keep that in mind.

Cymax provides a 30-day refund on most of their products. Although, take note that if you have to assemble your product its not returnable. Also, mattresses are not returnable. Depending on what you order, this could be a problem if you don't like your futon/mattress. Cymax will also deduct the original shipping cost of the product plus a restocking fee. Don't forget you also have to pay to ship the product back. Be sure that whatever you purchase from Cymax that you'll want to keep or this could be expensive.

Cymax has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Customer reviews are mixed. In the past Cymax had numerous complaints about damaged products, delayed shipping, poor customer service. Recently their reviews have improved so it looks like they've been learning from past mistakes. If you find the perfect futon on Cymax for a great price, you should be comfortable buying it - but if you aren't sure, keep shopping, their return policy could cost you.

Lowe's

LOWE'S Visit Site

Cost:

Starting from $168

Lowes is a large home improvement store that operates online and in retail locations all over the country. Their main focus is tools, hardware, appliances, lumber, plumbing, etc. and they have a small department for furniture. Lowes offers less than 50 futon options that are moderately priced, we can tell this is definitely not their cash cow.

Lowes website is very easy to navigate, there aren't a ton of options to sort through. Buyers can sort by best sellers, price and highest rated. You can further refine your futon search by choosing brand, price and rating. If you are interested in several futons you can select, compare and do a side by side comparison of each product. Lowes offers futon frames and futon loveseats. Futon frames do not come with a mattress and they do not sell futon mattresses. They do have over 20 futon collegiate covers to support your favorite college.

Once you have selected a futon, click on the product for more information. The website offers multiple photos of the futon, product description, specifications and customer reviews. Almost all of the futons had no reviews. This page will also tell you if the product ships for free or if its available for free pick-up at your local Lowes.

The futons at Lowes are priced between $168 - $750. We feel their prices aren't as competitive as other futon sellers, especially since none of their futon frames come with a mattress. We still think they are worth a look since a lot of their loveseats look nice. Lowes also offers live chat while you are shopping for futons. Customer support is also available by calling your local Lowes or the 1-800 number they have on their website.

Lowes has a great return policy, they want all customers to love their purchases. Buyers may make returns within 90 days of purchase. You can return in the store or by mail with the prepaid return shipping label. Pretty simple.

Lowes is a wonderful store for home improvement needs. They offer a great return policy and we love the live chat customer support. However, we think their selection and price leads something to be desired.

The mattress cover can be made out of several types of materials, such as microfiber, cotton, linen, velvet - the possibilities are almost endless. Futon mattresses are very similar to traditional mattresses but as an added bonus you can turn the mattress into a couch. Instead of purchasing a bed and a couch, a futon provides both of these pieces of furniture in one for an affordable price. Futon covers are interchangeable so you can update the look of your futon as often as you like.

Futons can be purchased in several different sizes, colors, materials. The futon mattress is also available in several different comfort levels - firm, plush, medium.

When looking for a futon there are several factors you should consider:

  • Selection. Does the company offer a wide variety of futons and accessories to choose from?
  • Return Policy. What is the companies return policy if you are not satisfied with your futon purchase?
  • Website ease of use. Is the company website easy to navigate? Are you finding the information and support you are looking for?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best futon stores available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right futon for you!
