Daybed Types:

Mostly there are two types of a daybed, a regular daybed and daybed with trundle. The major difference in both is the trundle gives extra sleeping space as it is an additional bed hidden under the daybed which can be used by simply sliding from the daybed.

 

Daybed Dimensions:

Daybeds mostly measure same as twin beds. The common size is somewhere between 39 and 75 inches width and length. Another size for daybeds is 90×200, which is also common to find. As a daybed requires a twin mattress, it can be good for a single person to sleep with comfort on it. If it has trundle bed under it, that is then good for two people.

 

Daybed Features:

Along with its convenience the daybed can be found in different designs giving you various features. Some daybeds offer you with drawers beneath or the shelves on the top to place your books or other decorative items.

 

Daybed Ideas:

It is easy to style your daybed because of its size. Daybeds are already good for many reasons but there are different ideas you can use:

So How to Compare Daybed with Similar Beds?

There are certain types of furniture items which are similar to daybeds. But for you to know the difference here are some of these below:

 

Daybed vs Sleeper Sofa:

A sleeper sofa looks like a regular sofa. So, what makes it a bed is its mattress which usually gets folded into its interior, otherwise someone can’t easily judge it being a sleeper sofa. On the price point a sleeper sofa tends to be more expensive, for this reason daybeds are good on a budget.

 

Daybed vs Futon:

Even though both daybed and futon have similar features, these are different by several aspects. As the name suggests, the daybed is more like a bed while futon looks more like to sofa that converts into a bed depending on the use. Well, I can understand it doesn’t look like more of a difference but there are still several things different in each such as design and structure. Both have space saving capabilities and are used for seating space and sleeping.

 

Daybed vs Sofa Bed:

Though sofa beds have a specific style and it is difficult to tell if it is a bed when it is placed as a sofa till you bring it together. Another good thing about sofa beds is these convert to a full bed giving sleeping space to more than one person. Whereas a daybed still has its own beauty, it can whether look like a bed and a sofa at the same time because of its size.

 

Different Features:

Daybeds also offer a number of choices for your requirements, such as with trundle, no trundle and storage.

 

Daybed with Storage:

When you are living alone, trundle would not be your choice. Instead a daybed with storage or drawers can be more suitable for you. The storage is great for your clothes so you do not need an extra armoire or cupboards. So it saves even more space by offering you in beautiful drawers.

 

Daybed with Trundle:

The main feature of the daybed which makes it popular is daybed having a trundle feature. However, it is not something new. There are trundle beds which offer a sliding bed beneath. The only difference is, these are regular twin beds with an extra hidden bed for your guests or sleepovers. But, if you look at both, you can see a daybed with trundle looks attractive because it makes it even more unique piece of furniture.

 

Is a Daybed an Important Piece of Furniture?

Almost in every home, we can see the common furniture such as sofas, beds, chairs and dining tables etc. A daybed on the other hand serves multiple purposes. It resembles to an extra-large (in height) sofa, yet it is not a sofa. However, it can be used as a sofa or couch and can also be used as a bed because of its length. The same daybed can also be used in a guest room where your guests would find it an impressive piece of furniture for a delightful conversation.

 

Daybed Buying Guide:

May be the inventor of the daybed didn’t know how useful would it become for people. As you wouldn’t possibly ignore the choices you can have with a daybed. But if you are new to it; you may still want to know about it, such as its components and materials.

 

To get started, let’s talk about the daybed frames:

Daybed Wooden Frame:

The wooden frame has been used for centuries, and the best thing about the material is; it is available in different types. Such as it is your choice what wooden material you for example: Beech wood, oak, pine, walnut and you name it.

Wooden daybeds generally look like sofas. For this reason, these are ideal for guest rooms as a single daybed can accommodate more people than a regular sofa due to its length. Not only that, your guests can also sit with comfort as it has wider sitting space. Wooden frame gives a classical look to a daybed but it also depends on its style and design.

Let’s talk about some of the best quality wood materials used in a daybed.

 

Oak Daybed Frame:

When it comes to traditional furniture, oak is popular for its hardwood. It gives a unique look to your daybed. Oak keeps it durable and long lasting. It is so much sturdy that people make ship flooring with it. So, you can imagine how great it would be for a daybed which doesn’t have to carry so much weight. The Oak wood is expensive as compared to many different woods. The reason behind this can be the slow growth of oak tree and its wood also becomes stronger. Oak has been used in furniture for hundreds of years.

 

Pine Daybed Frame:

Pine usually is a light color wood. The pine daybed frame is light-weight compared to oak, making it easy for you to move the daybed around. Being shock resistant, a daybed frame made of pine prevents any damage. However, there are some downsides to it too such as it wears out by time quickly than oak. When a sharp object hits it, it can be easily scratched and marks can be visible on it.

 

Solid Wood Daybed Frame:

An alternative to oak, birch and maple frames is solid wood daybed frame if you are looking for a frame on a budget. It is made by using species of hardwoods like oak and birch but it is the low cost alternative for you.

 

Metal Daybed Frame:

One of the main benefits of using metal daybed frames is, the metal daybed frames are light-weight as compared to wooden frames. These are easily portable and low cost too. Another reason to have a metal daybed frame is; you do not have to worry about bed bugs which normally reach the wooden beds. These have long-term durability and with some care these can last for years to come. There are several types of metal daybed frames:

 

Wrought Iron Daybed Frame:

Wrought iron made of iron with very small percent of silicon, phosphorus, sulfur and aluminum oxides. A daybed frame made of wrought iron makes the daybed strong because wrought iron has high durability compared to cast iron. On the other hand, when it comes to iron works; it is flexible than the cast iron. Moreover, it is widely used in making different items such as chains, agricultural items and nails etc. So, you know by now how durable a wrought iron daybed frame would be. The downside of wrought iron is it can rust easily if it doesn’t get waterproofed.

 

Cast Iron Daybed Frame:

If you looking for a daybed for outdoors such as lawn or garden, the cast iron daybed frame would be suitable for it. The reason is; cast iron is suitable for outdoors because it has hardness and heaviness.

 

Steel Daybed Frame:

Steel is much heavier form of metal for a daybed frame. However, it is durable and weather resistant and stainless; if you add your daybed as patio furniture it can still be effective. With proper care you can keep it in good shape for long-term. But because it is heavy, it might make it difficult to move around by a single person. If it is placed outdoors it is better to cover it as its temperature changes with weather. The downside of a steel frame is, it is expensive compared to most metals because of its quality and rust-free properties.

 

Brass Daybed Frame:

The brass is coming back and it is becoming a new trend after long years of using stainless steel furniture. People are moving towards yellow metals. Similarly, it is also becoming popular in daybed frames. The golden shades of brass are making household furniture more attractive.

 

Upholstered Daybed Frame:

An upholstered frame gives a new look to the daybed. If you are not into wooden furniture designs or floral metal frames, the upholstered would be the right frame for your room décor. The best thing in using an upholstered frame is; you do not have to find extra covers or cushions to match your room furniture, but you can find the right upholstered frame color to match your room décor such as: curtains or drapes, the color of carpet and color of sofas etc.

 

Daybed Uses:

Alright, so daybed isn’t only suitable for a guest room but it has different other uses. Here are some uses:

 

For Guest Room:

Having a luxurious look, daybed never forgets to surprise your guests. This huge sofa-like furniture can easily match with most items in the room décor. The reason here is; daybed is a unique piece of furniture and not everyone uses it. Keeping it in your guest room makes it special for your guests.

 

For Kids Room:

Placing daybed in kids’ room makes the room playful for children. There are endless possibilities and ways the daybed can be used. A daybed with trundle can help two kids sleep and then the trundle slides back to save space in the room. If your kid is 2 years or less, you can simply add a board on front of daybed and use it as your kid’s crib. If you don’t have boards available you can simple move the daybed facing wall.

 

For Sunroom:

Daybed would also be an ideal piece of furniture in your sunroom when you are in a mood for reading or getting warm in winter sunlight on a cozy sofa-like bed. Its long length would give you a choice between sitting and reading or just laying down.

Daybeds are not like regular indoor furniture to be used for indoors only, but these are popular for outdoors.

For Garden:

How about enjoying some fresh air in your garden on a comfortable bed? A large round daybed with canopy can serve this purpose by giving you comfort and sunshade while you enjoy healthiest fragrance of flowers.

 

For Adults:

Now let’s talk about space saving. Of course, in a bedroom you have to use a bed. But if you have a small room, a daybed with trundle would be something to consider. Another good reason for having a daybed in your bedroom is; if you are sharing a room with someone, and don’t want to sleep together on a regular bed. A trundle bed solves that problem by its slide out or pop out trundle. Now, both of you have a separate sleeping area of your own within one daybed.
