8 Exciting Advantages of Day Beds
8 Exciting Advantages of Day Beds
Have you started enjoying the comfort and style of a daybed yet?
Growing in popularity due to the many renovation shows that show off their style, versatility and class, daybeds are being used in more and more extra rooms and guest rooms. These beds are generally the same size as a twin bed and offer a range of different styles.
With a range of designs, including some that come with a trundle bed which pulls out for some extra sleeping space, daybeds are a mixture of function and style that can elevate any space.
If you have a small space that you want to turn into a comfortable and versatile sleeping area, very few options have the same number of benefits as daybeds.
Multipurpose and small rooms are the ideal location for a daybed and they are often recommended by designers for spare bedrooms and craft rooms where they can match the rest of the décor.
One of the great benefits of daybeds is the fact that you can provide sleeping space without devoting the entire room to this.
There are many other benefits that you should know about before you buy your next dream daybed, so here are 8 exciting benefits of a daybed.
#1 - Daybeds are... Great for Small Spaces
If you have a small space, you need to use all of it to the best of your abilities.
With a daybed, you will not need any extra room to use them as a bed. This is an issue you have with futons and sleeper sofas which need to be pulled out and set up. Once pulled out, they can take up the entire room while providing a rather uncomfortable surface to sleep on.
The discomfort is caused by the mattress needing to be flexible enough to fold when not in use. Futons are generally more comfortable than sleepers, but they will not provide the best experience.
Daybeds are different and the trundle versions will give you more sleeping space when you have more guests than expected.
#2 - Daybeds are... Easy to Customise
With a daybed, the act of changing the linen can drastically change the overall appearance.
According to custom house designers All Image Architects, daybeds can be used to complement existing home decors to great effect. They explain “if you want a cosy feeling in the room, you should choose warm and dark colours. If you want an airy or feminine look to the room, you should choose flowers and lighter colours. When you combine this with the right accent pillows, you will have a piece of furniture that looks nothing like a bed until it is time to sleep.”

With a massive range to choose from, you can customise your day bed mattress to go on your existing frames to match your furniture or personal style.

#3 - Daybeds are... Highly Functional
Daybeds are well known for their functionality.
When you have the addition of a trundle, it is like the bed is hiding in a drawer below. This customisation feature will make these beds ideal for children’s rooms. They can easily accommodate addition bodies when there is a sleepover.
All you will need to do is pull the trundle out and you will have enough space for everyone. In the morning, you simply push it back and out of sight.

How simple is that?!
#4 - Daybeds are... A Reliable Comfort
Daybeds offer a constant level of comfort.
Throughout the night, an air mattress will leak air and lose some of the support it offers. The real mattress that you have with a daybed will retain its comfort during the night.
Of course, daybeds do vary in terms of comfort and quality. This is something that you need to keep in mind when you look at them and determine the firmness of the mattress that you need.

According to daybed fan and Sydney social media manager Max Persyn, if you are frequently going to use your daybed, it is recommended that you get a firmer mattress. He explains:
“I’ve had a number of daybeds over the years and the most common trap I would fall into was to buy with my eyes, and not my body. Make sure you try out each daybed and find out whether they can sustain their comfort level when you sleep or sit on it over time. I recommend chatting with professionals at a reputable store to help you save time, money and back aches!”
#5 - Daybeds are... The Ultimate in Variety
There are a lot of options available including movable backrests which allow you to customise where it sits.
Compared to futons, daybeds will not have to be opened or closed to get to the mattress. When you have a futon, the mattress will be folded most of the time which causes wear and compression making them uncomfortable.
This does not happen with a daybed and with the options available you can easily find one that is as easy to move and store as a futon or sleeper sofa.
#6 - Daybeds are... The Ultimate in Variety
While your futon can work as a sofa as well, a daybed will be more aesthetically pleasing.
Daybeds are generally open on 3 sides which makes them look like a very deep sofa. There are a lot of different styles that you can get to ensure that the daybed matches the rest of your décor.
#7 - Daybeds are... The Ultimate in Variety
Daybeds can be placed in an office, guest room or a spare room.
The benefit of this is that the bed does not look like one unless it is actively being used for this purpose. While futons and sleepers are the same, they do need more setup time and room.
According to interior designer Gary Hamer, Daybeds are particularly good for the office or craft room because they take up very little space. He notes “when it is time to sleep, you will not have to worry about pulling the sofa or futon out. All you need to do is take the extra pillows off and your guests will have a comfortable place to sleep.”
No more getting the couch ready for an uncomfortable sleep!
#8 - Daybeds are... Beauty and Style
Futons and sleeper sofas are not known for being the most aesthetically pleasing furniture on the market. This is a major benefit of daybeds as they are very visually appealing and will come in any styles that you can think of. The frames could be wood or brass and they come in any colour that you might want. You can also get daybeds that look like antiques if this is the décor that you want.
When compared to sleeper sofas and futons, daybeds are a much better buy.
They are also more affordable than the other options. If you need to move them, they are also generally lighter than futons and sleepers. There is less assembly needed and you will be able to place it in any room.
Daybeds offer extra seating and a place to sleep when needed in a compact and visually pleasing package.
