Standard Daybeds are available in a number of styles, and can feature trundle bed additions. Even though they do not convert from a couch to a sleeper like a futon, the one thing all standard daybeds have in common is that they are adaptable. They can be made to appear like a couch while functioning as a primary or additional sleeping space. Canopy daybeds are usually easy to spot from the four posts it has on its corners. This is a popular choice for children or teens because of the charming and romantic feel it exudes.
Daybeds may also incorporate a trundle unit as well. Trundle units allow for an extra mattress to be stored underneath, to be pulled out for extra sleeping space when needed. You can choose a pop-up trundle unit, where the extra mattress can be rolled and elevated to the same height of the daybed, converting it into a king-sized sleeping area. The other option for trundle units is a pull-out, where the extra mattress is rolled out on wheels or a glider. However, these do not elevate to the daybeds height, forcing you to sleep much lower to the ground.
Alongside these variations, the styles of today`s daybeds are often accented with wooden finals, brass, and other matching furniture. There are those that come with coordinated mirrors and dressers too. You can definitely choose the design of the daybed which you think suits your taste best.
While daybed bedding is designed for the twin size mattress, there are some significant differences, the most noticeable being the daybed comforter. A daybed comforter is 52" wide x 99" long while a standard twin comforter is 62" wide x 86" long. If you would like to use a regular twin sized comforter on your daybed, keep in mind that you will have a 10-inch overhang (width) to contend with and it will be 13" shorter than a comforter designed for a daybed. A daybed comforter is intended to hang parallel to the daybed`s back rather than a standard twin comforter that is parallel to the headboard.
Daybeds are generally used for sleeping during the daytime (as the name suggests). However, daybeds also differ from standard beds in that daybeds are commonly used as a sofa, making them ideal for use in living rooms, family rooms, dens, and bedrooms. However, because of this rather thin definition, many may still confuse a daybed with a Futon. Daybeds generally do not transform from couch to bed like a futon, and are more decorative than a futon as well, utilizing accessories such as covers, skirts, throw pillows, and comforters.
When considering choosing a full size daybed, you will discover that there are many other things to take into consideration, thereby making the decision process a more difficult one. Before you buy anything, you should make sure that the bed and the other items or furniture in the room blends together to give the room a befitting look. The bed should blend with the size and color of things, like carpet or hardwoods, wallpaper or paint, storage containers or custom shelving. But, your final choice on what daybed you get will all depend on the dimensions of the room, and sometimes you have to choose between traditional beds and daybeds. Note that daybeds are suitable for rooms with smaller spaces, unlike traditional beds that come in different styles and sizes.
A Chaise daybed is an ideal place to sit, or have a good night`s sleep, depending on the manufacturer, brand and type. They are available in a number of styles, designed as a place to stretch out for a nap, as a comfortable place to read or relax, as a place to sleep or as a lounger. Most Chaise daybeds use a modern or contemporary design. Daybeds practically work out well for spare rooms, sun rooms, and even in the typical small-spaced apartments which you may be renting. A daybeds might be very useful in many different situations, you will find a daybed is not only convenient for your guests, but can be surprisingly comfortable for your afternoon naps.
If you really are after the beauty of your home, then maximize the potential of your daybeds. It has to do with choosing properly the bed skirts and the covering of the mattress. The well-kept blankets and other cloth can be transformed to become attractive daybed coverings. If in the morning, you prefer to convert the daybed into a couch, then you may use a slipcover for the mattress.
