When you’re getting ready to live in a tiny house or other kind of small space you’ll probably end up wanting a futon.
This way when you have guests there’s somewhere for them to sit and/or sleep.
A futon is almost like having a sofa bed except that it’s less expensive and most of the time more comfortable.
In my friend Dan Louche’s first tiny house that he built for his mom, she used a futon as her couch during the day then converted it into a bed in the evening.
This allowed her living room to serve two functions with little effort since she didn’t want to be climbing up a sleeping loft to go to bed.
So here are what I consider to be the top 7 futons for tiny houses and other small spaces.
If you’re actually shopping for this right now, look carefully as you may have to purchase the mattress, cover, and frame separately.
Premiere Futon Mattress
If you already have the frame in place, or simply want to order a futon mattress for your upstairs sleeping loft then here it is.
Silver Futon Frame
This silver futon frame looks modern. It’s simple and inexpensive. Be sure to find a mattress that fits.
Hard Wood Futon Frame
This is a more traditional and sturdy wood futon frame that you can use with most futon mattresses (sold separately).
Metal/Wood Frame Futon
This model uses a combination of wood and metal. It’s professionally built and adjusts to three different positions.
Modern Black Futon Frame
This version is less costly than the one above and features a modern look. Great for most small spaces.
Black Metal Futon Frame
Basic futon frame which you can add your own mattress to. The one at the top of this page is perfect for it.
Bunk Bed Futon
This one comes with an upstairs sleeping area which can be really handy in a shared bedroom or multifunctional living area.
