A queen-size futon measures approximately 60 inches by 80 inches, which is slightly wider and longer than a full-size futon. For this reason it is usually the perfect choice for platform beds. While uncommon, you can also use it on bi-folding frames for a more comfortable couch that adds about 6 inches of extra height when assembled.
A futon cover protects the futon pillow and keeps it clean, much like a fitted sheet covers a regular mattress. While a fitted sheet can be used in place of a futon cover, it fits best if the futon is used flat and only in the bed position.
Typically the width of a bi-fold frame (arm to arm distance) is equal to the mattress length. This is the amount of wall space you will need. For example, a standard full-size bi-fold futon frame can range from 77″ to 80″ in length.

A futon of this size would be ideal for smaller guest rooms and a living room setup. Twin mattresses measure 38″ x 74″. It is best to place a futon of this size in a room that is 7ft by 10ft.
