Four Ways to Use a Daybed

Sure, daybeds are a cozy place to rest your head at night, but they’re also a great spot for reading, watching TV and lounging – alone or with a friend or two. Fashioned with a twin-sized mattress, daybeds are one of the most versatile pieces of furniture you can have. And with a trundle, it can sleep two.


Part bed and part loveseat, we’ve identified four rooms where a daybed would be right at home:


Wilshire Daybed

A small guest room

Instead of overpowering a small spare bedroom with a double or queen size bed, use a daybed to make the most of the room. It fits along the wall, which will maximize your space, and it will make a tiny room feel comfortable and quaint. Our Wilshire Daybed would be perfect for a small guest room. Made of solid pine, it features the cozy design elements of turned woodcarving, sculpted posts and traditional round finials.




A teenager’s bedroom

A teenager’s bedroom is part sleep space, part lounge space and part gathering space. And a daybed is the perfect solution for all three. Covered in durable leather-like fabric, the Brenton Daybed will quickly become the envy of your child’s friends. Available in brown or white upholstery, it becomes sleepover ready with its rollout trundle bed.


Bedford Daybed


A home office

You don’t have to lose your guest room when you convert a spare bedroom into a home office. Simply use a daybed as a sofa-like addition. The Bedford Daybed is stylish enough to fit into a home workspace. Its traditional sleigh design includes molded, raised side and back panel sides and back. In a cherry finish, it would easily complement your executive or writing desk.


Camelot Daybed


A sunroom or porch

When it’s summer, sleeping on the porch or sunroom is a treat. But you don’t want to lose sitting space. Do both by using a daybed. Our Camelot Daybed has a sleigh design that is simple, yet elegant. Available in black or gold finish, the ends feature roped wire draped with decorative castings.
