What to Look for in Daybeds

Because daybeds come in such a wide range of styles now, you are faced with more decisions than ever when it comes to shopping for just the right one. You're going to want to consider the style of the room for which you are shopping, think about where the daybed will be placed and work on finding a style that complements the rest of that room. You'll want to coordinate with the pieces that are already there so that the daybed blends as it is meant to, rather than stands out glaringly as an extra sleeping area.

You may also want to consider as to whether or not you would like extra storage underneath or perhaps even a trundle bed. Either offers you some great functional use of otherwise wasted space. In a craft room or office, storage under the daybed gives you a place to tuck away craft supplies or files. Or even, perhaps, the bedding for the daybed itself in case you are in an area of the house that isn't close to a linen closet. Adding a trundle feature, however, gives you yet another sleeping space for extra guests and because the trundle can usually be elevated, your twin sized daybed can be instantly transformed into a king sized sleeping spot for visiting couples.

The most important thing, however, when shopping for your daybed is to find the right piece of furniture for you and your needs. Find the one that will work perfectly in your space and provide the functionality that you are looking for without compromising on your own personal style and flair.
