How to Flatten a Futon

Save

A futon has dual uses as both a couch and a bed. Because of these uses, it has a folding frame that allows it lay flat when in use as a bed. If you are having trouble getting your futon configured, a few basic steps will help you unfold it. Thankfully for those uninitiated with futons, this process is simple and quick.

  • Grab the futon firmly and pull it out away from any walls in the room. If you are worried about scratching the floor, have a friend help you lift the futon back away from the wall.

  • Search for the positioning handle on the futon. On most futons, this handle is labeled with directions for unfolding. It's under the front seat on many models.

  • Squeeze the handle to disengage the lock and lift upward.

  • Slowly walk backward as the futon unfolds and set the legs of the futon gently down on the floor. The futon is now flattened and ready for use.
