You don't need to buy a whole new futon just to get a new look, there are a wide range of futon covers available and you only have to browse through to find one that will suit your futon, and the style you are trying to create in your house. Many people nowadays use futons as there bed of choice, however most people have them in their guest room or in their living room so they can save space but still have an extra bed for their friends and family to stay on.

You have many fabric choices that you need to consider when you are looking at futon covers. It may get confusing or frustrating but you need to keep patience because you will be able to find the one that suits your home. Something that you may want to consider when you are looking at buying a new cover for your futon is if it is washable in the washing machine. It is so much easier if it gets dirty to just throw it in the washing machine. Otherwise you can spend hours trying to get a stain out, and then trying to let it dry. If it is machine washable then you can throw it right in and it will be done and dried quickly.

A myth that many people think about when looking at futon covers is that 100% cotton is the best way to go. This is not always the case. Quality futon covers are a blend of cotton and polyester. This will mean that your cover will last much longer, it will not shrink, it will not fade and it certainly won't unravel. If you want to buy a premium futon cover and get very stylish then you also have the option of getting it in leather. This is becoming really popular and can actually spice up your futon a lot. However in saying all that, what is really most important is how it looks to you, not what the material is. If you have pets then the material may be more important to you. Look at getting a vinyl futon cover, because you are able to simply wipe it clean, it feels like leather but it is much easier to maintain.
