Daybed Information

A daybed is a useful piece of furniture that serves as a seating area similar to a sofa or a sleeping space comparable to a small bed. While all daybeds accommodate a standard twin size mattress, many daybeds also offer an optional trundle. When needed, the trundle conveniently pulls out to supply an extra sleeping space. Otherwise, the trundle is concealed underneath the daybed. Daybeds are excellent for an apartment, office area or other small spaces that may need a place for guests to sit or sleep. Because daybeds are so versatile, they can accommodate several needs without requiring the space necessary to lodge a full-size bed.

Daybed Frames and Mattresses

Daybeds are limited to twin size mattresses, which are 39 inch x 75 inch. If you prefer the appearance of a daybed, but need a full-size sleeping space, a futon may be a more useful option. After all, futon models usually resemble a daybed, but expand into a full-size bed when unfolded. A daybed frame is similar in appearance to a sofa. While they both consist of two side panels, one back panel, a daybed's width is larger than a couch so it also serves as a bed. Daybed frames are available in a variety of materials, including wood, metal, or a combination of the two. In addition, you can choose from an assortment of mattress styles, including soft support, medium support, and firm support, so that your guests rest comfortably. Daybeds use link springs, which is metal grid-like structure that substitutes for a box spring. The daybed link spring attaches to the side panels of the daybed frame to create a sturdy, stable area. The twin mattress rests on the daybed link spring, allowing room below for the optional second mattress.

Daybed Trundles

Several daybed styles are available featuring an option trundle. In addition, there are two types of trundles to choose from, pop-up trundles and drawer trundles. Typically built of metal, pop-up trundles expand your daybed's length to the dimensions of a king size bed. The trundle portion elevates and extends when in use to meet the height of your daybed; otherwise, it lowers and may be stored separately. A drawer trundle, on the other hand, provides a space to store your trundle when not in use. However, this style of trundle is unable to extend or elevate unless the drawer is detached entirely. Drawer trundles are also useful when a second twin-size sleeping option is needed.

Daybed Bedding

Daybeds have space available on either side of the mattress to provide room for bedding. There are a variety of bedding styles designed specifically for daybeds. These sets often contain a bed skirt, three pillow shams, and a comforter. Bed skirts are useful in concealing a trundle or hiding items stored beneath the daybed. Another option for dressing your daybed is the use of cushion, which can be custom made using indoor or outdoor fabrics. This creates a space that is more similar to a sofa. You may also include accent pillows or bolster pillows to your daybed's decor to add layers of comfort and support.
