How to Fold Futon Sofa Beds

Lime Futon Sofa Bed

Futon sofa beds are a functional piece of furniture that can save space in a small room. It can be folded down into a bed and then folded into a sofa during the day. Folding a futon on the sofa is simple and fast.


Grip one end of the front of the futon and have a second person grasp the other end. If you use only one person, grasp it in the middle. Hold the other side of the futon, which will be on the back of the sofa, with the other hand, and your friend does the same. If you fold it alone, grasp the middle of that side with the free hand. Pull up the back and press down on the front to make it easier to fold. The futon should start to fold in the middle.

Press the center of the futon if it does not want to fold. Pull on one side while pressing until it begins to fold, and then resume pulling on the back. Pull until the futon is pulled into an upright position. It will now act as a sofa. To convert it back to a bed, simply push the back down again. Take the futon mattress if you find it difficult to get the frame folded, and replace it after placing it in place.
