So folks, I have been debating what to buy for seating in my room, should it be a futon or a couch? Both have advantages and disadvantages...what should I get?
#4
thing is i want it to be something visitors can sleep on. also i want more than one person to be able to sit on it comfortably.
#5
yeahhhh i was just gonna say, bean bags are the way to go. i mean, who doenst like em? honestly, i'd rather own a couple of beanbag chairs than an expensive leather couch


EDIT: get lots of beanbag chairs then
#6
couch, futons often have bars that go across that are very uncomfortable when your sleeping on them...

Get multiple bean bag chairs and duct tape. Duct tape them together and you've got pure awesomeness.

I lawled at that for some reason.
Anyway I vote couch because with a couch you can cut open one of the cushions on the bottom and hide your drugs in it.

Futons are supposed to be better for your back to sleep on.

Bean bag couch.

Or the Duct-tape idea. Seriously.

I have a futon, and it's ridiculously uncomfortable. The cushion is too thin.

I have 3 futon mattresses piled on top of each other and then 2 egg crate foam things on top of that, It's molded to the shape of my body. You have no idea how comfy it is. I'd rather get a couch for my room and sleep on that though. Saves a lot of room.
#25
Futon!

They're just too awesome. Its like one day, you guys are watching SNL and stuff, and now you guys are like "Pillow fight!" and bust out pillows while someone else busts out the futon. It's totally worth it.

get a futon.




i want to get one when i have my own place.


lol, someone else posted the same picture.

i didnt realize it until after i did too.


i think that just proves that you need to get one.
#27
Well I've got a nice futon in my room, it comes in handy as I like to sit while I'm in there doing my day to day activities, and I have a friend who stays over a lot, 4 or 5 times a week, and he sleeps on that.

But if you're usually alone, I'd get a couch, I like them more, it's the real thing.

+1, I had to sleep on a futon at my friend's house once and it was very incomfortable. I didn't get a lot of sleep and was really tired the next day. Get a couch. I sleep on a couch when I can't fall asleep in my bed. It is way more comfortable than a futon.
#40
Futon definitely. But just get a decent one...try before you buy!!
