How to Keep a Futon Mattress from Slipping: Easy Steps

Futon Mattress

Futons are great, aren’t they? They are cozy, comfortable, and so very convenient. But the only problem with this piece of furniture is that they are notoriously slippery. It feels like they have a mind of their own. But fret not my friend; we have the perfect remedy for you. So, scroll down to know more. 

The Slipperiness Is Due To the Material 

One of the most common reasons why your mattress slips is because of the friction between the material of the futon and the frame. And what can you do? You can DIY a gripper to put it between the two so that they don’t budge. To do it, use a non-slip material. If you don’t have any at home, you can buy a roll from your local hardware store. Grippers are generally placed between the floors and the carpets to ensure it doesn’t move. However, it works excellent for futons too. Just cut the material in small squares or circles and place it between the futon and the frame. And don’t worry! These grippers won’t be visible and if it is, just use a futon cover to hide it. 

Maybe It Is Due To the Frame 

 Sometimes, when the frame starts to sag, it can cause slipperiness. If that’s the case, all you need to do is tighten the bolts, and you are all set. To ensure it is sturdy, you need to pull the bolts every few months. Also, frames are the foundation. Hence, it is essential to purchase premium quality.

It Slips Because Of the Unlevel Frame 

Maybe you haven’t realized it yet, but the slipperiness is perhaps because of the unlevel frame. So, check if that’s the case. Because it sometimes happens that a slight adjustment and you are all set. 

Do You Toss and Turn At Night? 

The most common problem of all is tossing and turning at night. If this is causing your mattress to slip, then use steps to secure your bed to the frame. How can you do that? Just sew a piece of cording on the corner of your mattress to create loops, and then you can use ropes to strap the mattress to the frame. 

In fact, if you are also looking for extra padding, you can use a Euro-top. They provide the extra comfort and support that is sometimes missing in a mattress. What are the benefits of the euro-top bed?

  • It keeps the temperature neutral, and you can sleep on it, whether it is hot or cold.
  • If you like sleeping on a medium-soft surface, then this is perfect for you.
  • If flipping your mattress every now and then seems very tiring, then this is just right.
  • Euro tops ensure strong edge support.
  • If you want a softer sleeping surface.
  • If you have aches and pains, then Euro top mattress can be helpful.
