How to Set Up a Futon Bed


The futon is a useful and popular piece of furniture that doubles as both a bed and couch. Typically, the futon is used as a couch during the day and a bed at night. It can quickly fold up into the couch position or fold down into a flat-lying bed in a matter of minutes. Properly set up your futon as a bed and enjoy a peaceful night of sleep.

  • Grab the futon and gently pull the back away from the walls of the room it is in. If the futon is too heavy for you to move, ask a friend to help hold the other side. It is best to lift the futon to avoid scratching the floors.

  • Locate the positioning handle. On a majority of models, this handle is located underneath the front seat cushion. The handle is often labeled with instructions for unfolding.

  • Grasp the positioning handle with one or two hands and lift directly up to disengage the lock.

  • Walk backward while holding the handle to unfold the futon, and set the legs of the futon gently onto the floor to complete the unfolding process.

  • Adjust the arm and seat cushions to fit the frame of the bed to your liking to finish the set-up process.
