Futons and Sofa Beds for your Attic or Loft Room at Futons247

One of the most common requests we get is for 'flat-packed' futons and sofa beds for customers who are wishing to place extra seating or sleeping arrangements in an attic or loft room. I guess as use of space in houses is becoming increasingly important with many more people working from home, for example, using the space in the roof is a sensible and practical option.

Fortunately most of the futons and sofa beds we offer are delivered in a flat-pack form so are simple to fit into attic rooms even if you have a narrow or 'half-width' type staircase, spiral stairs or a narrow entrance, of course we would always recommend taking the various futon base components upstairs one at a time to make the lifting straightforward.

The two pictures here show two of our models located neatly into customers loft rooms. For full details on our futons and futon mattress choice visit our website by following the link below:

Natural Futon Mattress - Free from Fire Retardant Chemicals - Futons247

Just an update to keep everyone posted on the progress of our excellent CottonSafe Natural Futon Mattress products. You may be aware by now that in our quest to give our customers choice we can now offer our customers an alternative to the, rather strange and outdated, UK fire regulations. 

If you're concerned about what you are breathing in as you sleep you may wish to steer clear of certain foams and, above all, the chemicals used to spray coat many things in our everyday life, specifically the mattress you are sleeping on! Under UK fire regulations all furnishing items need to pass strict UK fire regulation tests which means 'back coated' chemical treatments. Fortunately we now have available the CottonSafe fabric, a blend of Organic Cotton and Wool quilted onto a layer of pure lambswool which is naturally fire retardant without the need for any chemical additives.

So if you're looking for a healthy sleeping choice visit our website for full details at or feel free to call us to chat about healthy sleeping options.
