Your children, your visitors, or even you may simply drop your tiring bodies into these daybeds. Most households today prefer getting daybeds for their homes since they can be used as a couch in the morning and as a bed at nighttime. Now the frames of these daybeds can actually give the impression of being a bed while there are also some which are gifted with elegant covers that let it appear as a standard couch propped up in your living room.
If you prefer to transform the daybed into some comfortable couch so your family and your guests may sit in, you can add some cushions that will compliment the color of the daybed covering. You can go for the elegant touch given off by the tassels or employ brightly colored patterned cushions. The pillows may be added and they can be in various shapes and sizes.
In case the daybed is at guests` bedroom and is anticipated to be utilized modestly for sleeping motive, then utilizing daybed cover rather than daybed bedding would be more economical and hassle-free. Bed skirts can even be omitted since these covers protect the whole mattress of the daybed all the way to the ground.
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.
Daybeds come to be made by materials of metal, wicker, wood, or the combination of these. The wood variations come in the forms of honey oak, natural oak, mahogany, walnut, rustic white, toffee, medium, expresso wicker, fruit wood, autumn brown, and cherry. On the other hand, the metal variations usually are in the forms of mocha frost, flint, antique white, antique bronze, black walnut, antique cocoa, powdered sugar, dusky bronze, bronze sugar, matte black, and pewter walnut.
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.
