Currently, there are six basic sizes of futon mattresses in the market, and they are; queen sofa, full sofa, loveseat, and twin, single (cot size) and chair.

Queen sofa

The queen sofas are also called sofa beds because their mattress goes in between the two arms. They are called sofa bed because they are as big as a bed. The average futon on this sofa will be almost 60 X 80 inches.

Full-size sofa

For the full-size sofa, the size is almost like that of the queen sofa, but because it goes five inches shorter, it is called a full-size sofa. It is about 54 X 75 inches.


For loveseat, this futon is called loveseat because it can only sleep two people. It goes about 21 inches shorter in length than the full-size sofa. It usually comes with a pullout that can be used to extend the size of the sofa into a lounge position.

Twin Futon

For the twin size futon mattress, it can be designed in the form of a chair or a twin lounger. The chair style doesn’t have an extension so it can only sleep a person but the twin style has an extension and can be extended almost to the size of a Loveseat.

Chair Futon

Chair futons that have footrests or augmentation pullouts are ordinarily alluded to as a single and measure 28 x 75 long when in the bed position. The consistent seat does not make a full-length bed and needs a footstool to make a full-length bed. Chair futons are always best for kids and can also make a place for a grown up to sleep rather than sleeping on the floor.

So what size is a standard futon mattress ? The full-size futon is 54 X 75 inches. This is always the best to buy because it doesn’t take too much space and also doesn’t cost too much.


Now that you have read this guide, I believe that you now have an idea of where to buy a futon mattress and which type to buy. You should at least know the type of futon you need before you buy.
