What You Need To Know About Daybeds

Posted by garymann875 on October 26, 2012 at 1:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Daybeds are the kind of beds that look like couches. A daybed should not be confused with a futon because a futon has no headboard. A daybed has a headboard that also serves as the backrest of the couch. A futon folds and therefore can be transformed into a couch or a bed. A daybed does not fold and stays in its form all the time.


Why Would You Want a Daybed?


A daybed is more functional than a usual bed. That's because it can be used as a couch. If you have to use a particular room in the house for different purposes, you can use a daybed. For example, that room is your reading room. You can simply use the daybed as a couch where you will read your books. When visitors arrive and they want to sleep over, you can use your reading room as a guest room. This is just a simple idea. For sure, you will have yours, too.


A daybed is more preferable than a futon because you can fit a twin size mattress into the frame. The surface is seamless, unlike with the futon wherein you can feel where the folds are. People who are looking for a more classic way of providing a sleeper sofa choose a daybed over a futon.


On Choosing Daybeds


When you want to have a daybed for your home, there are important things that you must consider. First is your needs, second is the room where you are going to place it. If you are using it as a couch and a bed for a bachelor's pad, choose one with a supportive mattress and a sturdy frame. If you want to have a sleeping space for the kids' room, look for a trundle style daybed.


Metal daybeds should also be taken into consideration. If you are renting your property and you cannot change the color of the wall, you can choose a metal frame that contrasts the wall color. Black is ideal for white walls or walls with neutral color. If your walls are dark, you can go for light-colored metal frames.


Metal frames come in a variety of designs, too. There are straight and there are curved metal daybed frames. There are also those that have scrolled design - simply choose according to the theme of your room.


For romantically themed living rooms, wooden frames work best. They give a rustic and casual appeal to the space. If the room is not generous in space, you may go for a frame that features drawers. Indeed, a daybed comes in a wide variety of designs. Coordinating them with the theme of your space should never be a problem.


You can buy a daybed for a more affordable price if you visit furniture warehouses. This way, you can save on gas, delivery fee and other expenses. You can even get your daybed for its wholesale price. If you have skills in carpentry, you can even launch your new do-it-yourself project and make your own daybeds.
