If your futon will be in a highly visible area where it needs to look nice, a coil-filled mattress does tend to lose its shape after a time. Foam-filled mattresses hold their shape better and look nicer in living rooms, guest rooms and other showcase areas of your home. Foam-filled mattresses are also better choices for those that use the futon primarily as a couch rather than as a bed. Additional style is achieved by selecting an appropriate cover for the room and accenting the futon with pillows to match.
Don't be shy. Lay down on the mattress for at least 10 minutes - salespeople are used to this and won't mind you doing so; if they object, go buy somewhere else. Also, lie down in your natural sleeping position. Too many people test out a mattress by lying on their back and forget or are too shy to lie on it as they would normally do at home.
Twin mattresses, also known as single beds, measure 39" x 75." These are the variety of mattress that is commonly found on daybeds, trundle beds, hideaways, and even most children's beds. However, if you are looking to fit a sheet over a twin bed in a student dormitory, it will likely be slightly longer measuring at 39" x 80." This lengthened twin mattress (named long twin mattress) is primarily used to occupy taller teens and adults and may prove harder to find the appropriate bedding for - just one more reason to get those scholarships to pay for college tuition.
According to The International Sleep Products Association, 10.8 years is the average life of a mattress and box spring. There are 312 million people in the U.S. today. Together, these numbers mean that around 48 million mattresses and/or box springs are sent to landfills every year. These estimates do not include units from hotels or dormitories, which are replaced more frequently.
