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:
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.
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.
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.
