The Perfect Futon Helped Me To Create A Great Space On A Budget



I recently transformed a small bedroom into a home office, sitting room and spare guest room.  The process required very little ingenuity, it all boiled down to finding the right items. Many of which I already owned. However, since the room is meant to perform triple duty it was essential that I find the right seating.

Dorel Home Products, aka DHP,  has the best selection of futons, day beds and other functional furniture at extremely competitive prices.  There were quite a few pieces from DHP that I really liked, so choosing was a bit challenging, but a lot of fun.  I went with the very versatile Euro Futon which works perfectly for the small space.



Euro Futon with Magazine Storage


I absolutely love this futon!  As you can see from the image above, the arm rests fold at different angles.  This is not only great for creating extra seating and sleeping, it's also ideal for comfort in that I'm able to position the arm rest at the right angle if I'm watching TV or reading.  Thus, it can also functions as a chaise lounger, the back cushion can be removed to create that look.  Talk about versatility.





The futon is offered in either black or grey.  I opted for the grey and it's actually more like a taupe.  It has both elements of grey and brown, so you can opt to bring out the grey or a warmer hue.





Assembly was easy.  Just add the legs and the back bar.  Everything I needed; the legs, back bar and tools, were contained in the futon with a velcro enclosure.

Is it comfortable?

It's what I would call firm comfort. I'm an average size female and I sit, lay and nap on this all the time and I'm perfectly comfortable.  With that said, it's not designed for permanent sleeping.  For a guest it's serves its purpose wonderfully.    It sits three average size adults comfortably.  The weight limit is four hundred pounds.



Euro Futon measurements:

Height:32"
Width:56"Depth:30"
Weight:63.94 lbs

I can see this futon working in so many different settings. such as extra seating in a master bedroom,  kids' room, family room, etc.  This piece enabled me to turn a small room into a very functional home office, sitting room and guest room.   The futon is so unobtrusive, it's as if it were designed specifically for a small space.  It's light and airy and really makes the small space appear larger.


As I mentioned, Dorel Home Products offers a really nice selection of functional furniture along with beds.  They consistently receive high ratings and have a high customer satisfaction.  The prices are phenomenal.  You can find their products just about anywhere, including Walmart,  Kmart as well as various online retailers such as Amazon.com

I really love the selection of products they offer on there site, great home décor pieces and very affordable prices when your on a budget.

I love the looks of the futon. It doesn't look like your typical futon that is made for "college students". It's too bad that this isn't more grey, I'd love it even more.

Kimberly said...

Futons are so versatile. We have a giant sleeper sofa in our office/guest room. A futon would have been a much sleeker choice.

Amanda C. said...

I've always thought futons were the coolest--but this one definitely tops the candy-colored ones I begged my parents for when I was a teenager. This would be a perfect addition to our living room.

Toystory said...

Since we made our guest room into a child's room for our grandson, having a futon for guests would be great.

Gale said...

This looks pretty stylish. Something to consider for our home.

tat2gurlzrock said...

I like this..so versatile! I think this would be perfect in our home office.

Deb said...

I also wonder- just how soft is it? I have known futons to be SO hard... "cotton" stuffed.. you may as well sit on a hard chair as those. Sleep on it? never ever. A futon made with foam cushions.. now that would be the ticket. I could use a thing like this in my room, I retreat there to watch TV sometimes, get away from the endless sports the hubby watches.

Elena G said...

I've been looking for a solution for our small office/craft room/guest room. This futon would fit perfectly. I like its neutral color.

Jessica said...

This would be great for our house. We don't have a computer room, not a "guest bedroom", but my mother in law is supposed to be staying with us for a couple weeks this summer. I don't want want to get a giant bed we don't really need, and I would feel bad having her sleep on an air mattress. This looks like the perfect solution

Wendy Mastin said...

I really like that it can also function as a chaise lounger

Michele P. said...

Salleefur/Jesselyn/Jesster said...

As a writer, I spend a lot of time in my home office and Futon like this one would be so perfect. Often I just need to lie down and either take a little nap or relax and think. And it's nice to get away from my desk and computer screen ~ I like to read off of actual PAPER in a relaxing position. A regular couch wouldn't fit nor look appropos with the rest of the room. Thanks for the the review. I am definitely going to look into this.
