Do you often have guests spending the night? Having a big family but not enough room? Preparing for a college dorm room? If any of those situations apply to you, then you must be looking for some futon-like mattresses right now. This Japanese style bed is popular because of how compact and easy to store it is. Some people even went far and treat futon just like a pillow top that also works well on its own.
Anyway, a futon can be a must-have item if you’re either on a limited space and budget or prefer to combine both function and comfort. In that case, you may want to look at our list that highlights several futon mattresses that will suit what you’re looking for.
DHP 8″ Coil Futon
At first glance, it looks like your regular sofa bed. But this mattress is a comfortable coil futon. The thickness is perfect for both day and night activity. The 6″ individually-cased coils are layered between foams and polyester. If you like a firm bed, this can be the one. The tufted microfiber cover will suit any décor you have and keep the mattress shape for a long time.
- Individually cased coils
- Fits all frame size
“My favorite purchase ever!”
“Very good futon mattress for the price!”
Do not dismiss this futon just because it’s only 4″ thick. With a layer of memory foam wrapped between soft microfiber cotton, this futon is very comfortable. However, you may need another base for where you put the futon. Directly on the floor is fine, but it can be quite uncomfortable for some. This futon is very easy to store, thanks to its size. All you have to do is to roll the bed and fold it into storage. You also can carry it for camping or other outdoor activity, as it comes with a travel bag and dustproof cover.
- Comes with a travel bag
- Easy to store
- Dustproof cover available

FULI Traditional Shikibuton
In case you’re looking for something more traditional Japanese, then FULI has it for you. The Shiki futon comes close to what the Japanese have in their home. At only 3″ thick, it may not seem much. But if you have the right base, you will sleep just fine. With 100% cotton cover and polyester fillings, this is more lightweight and much easier to store than other similar products.

DHP 6″ Futon Mattress
This futon mattress may not look like it, but it can be quite heavy. Despite the fact that it’s only 6″ thick, the tufted cover makes this futon looks a lot more luxurious as well as keeping the mattress to stay in shape. It also has maintenance since it’s made from 100% polyester. With only a damp cloth, you can quickly wipe the dirt away. Unlike another futon, DHP fills this one with polyester fiber pad fillings. But you don’t have to worry because it has passed Greenguard certification.
