Futon Life Knowledge base
As you may know, accidents happen. A simple spill of a glass of wine or juice can ruin your futon. For this reason, you always want to have a futon cover on them. When you buy your futon bed, they should come with them depending on where you buy them. Things need to be washed and replaced. Over time, your covers will wear out and having a worn down looking futon defeats the purpose of having a cool looking piece of furniture in your room.

Since the cover themselves are easily replaceable, you can "repair" them quickly. You will have a couple of choices of futon covers such as futon slip covers and the ones that zip up or button up. You generally want to go with the zipper option since it'll be more secure. It's quite annoying when you have to adjust the cover to make it fit right every now and then. So getting a futon cover for protection the actually futon is the way to go if you want to save yourself the hassle of having to get your actual futon professionally cleaned if something major happens.

Choosing the Right Futon Covers
When it comes to getting the right futon cover, you will have to look at the general decor of your room. There are two basic types of covers you can get in terms of color and design: solid colors and patterns. If you room is bright in general, you will want to stick with a solid color. If your room is some where in the middle, a pattern design could work well. Having a futon cover that doesn't match with the rest of the room will make it look off, like it doesn't belong there. This is why when you buy the futon in the first place, the cover it comes with might not match the decor of your room.
