Sofa Beds are thinner than Futons.

A sofa bed’s mattress is normally 4 or 5 inches thick — somewhat thicker than a futon mattress.

The thickness of a futon mattress is about 2 inches, while the thickness of a sofa bed mattress is about 4 inches.

The thickness is what makes it possible for a futon to be folded. Because futons are thinner than sofa beds, futons tend to be less expensive than sofa beds.
