Some great uses for daybeds
If a lounge chair, a bed, and a couch had a lovechild it would be a daybed. Daybeds are a great way to add furniture to a room that can not only make it look better, but serve a purpose as well. They can be used as a couch during the day and then as a bed at night.
Some daybeds also have cool and practical features such as end tables that can flip up or magazine drawers that can flip out from the sides. Whether you are using a daybed for sleeping, storage, or decoration to fill up that extra guest room, daybeds are a great addition to any household.
Daybeds are not to be confused with futons however, as they are two different things. Futons can be adjusted to either lay flat or bend upwards to from a pseudo-couch. Daybeds do not do this, although they both can be used as either a bed or couch.
Another great space saving feature that daybeds have is the ability to fit a trundle bed underneath. Trundle beds can be pulled out from underneath the twin sized mattress of the daybed. They are usually on rollers and can be used whenever a second bed is needed, and hidden when they are not. This is a great alternative if you do not want to have bunk beds in a room or do not have enough regular beds to accommodate any guests that may come over.
Whatever you need it for, a daybed is a unique and practical piece of furniture that you should definitely consider when creating your bedroom or guestroom.
