If you are someone that is inspired by the simple Japanese way of life, then it can do you a lot of good to opt for certain aspects of their minimalist lifestyle. The futon mattress can be considered to be a strong symbol of Japanese minimalism, and if you are currently, considering making the switch towards Japanese futons, then you should keep on reading below.

There are a lot of misconceptions about futons, and a lot of people consider it to be a cheap bed option that only college students or those who cannot afford a proper bed use, but that is not the case. Futons are still very famous in Japan, and you will find that people of all income classes there continue using futons.

Now, futons are basically a Japanese style mattress that you roll on the floor and sleep in. They are an ideal option for people who are living in smaller spaces, and for people who want to take care of their back health as well. Various studies have found that the best Japanese futon will help aid your back health and promote good quality sleep. This is because sleeping against the floor is found to be healthy for our backs.

Now, there are a number of different types of futons available in the market ranging from 100% cotton to 100% memory foam, and then futons that are a mix between the two. If you have special back issues, opting for a combination of cotton and memory foam will be good for you, and you want the futon to be at least 6 inches thick so that it is able to do some cushioning against the floor.

How to Buy The Right Bed Frame

I get a lot of questions from friends and family about how to buy the right things. Considering how they are under the impression that I know a lot, I normally guide them as far as my knowledge pool takes me, and allows me.

I remember looking at this amazing IKEA king size bed frame and I realised that this is something that I should totally own. However, the thing is that not everyone has access to IKEA, so I realised that maybe I should talk about how you can buy the right bed frame for yourself.

Therefore, in this article, we are going to be shedding light on how you can buy the right bed frame. Let’s not waste time and start looking at what is important.

Pay Attention to The Quality

A common way to lure customers is by making things look pretty. This has been the game for a very long time, and you need to understand that sometimes, behind the beauty, there lies bad overall build quality of the product. Especially if the beauty of a product does not justify the price you are paying. So, the one thing that I would always suggest you is that you need to make sure of.

Check Out The Size

Another thing that is very important for you is to make sure that the size of the bed is the right one. You will find a bed frame in a number of different sizes.  However, the easiest tip here is that you can ask the salesperson there to tell you where the bed you are looking at will support the size of the mattress that you are planning to buy with it, ultimately making things easier for you.
