Daybeds are hands down, one of the most practical and extremely versatile pieces of furniture to have. By simply adding one of these beds to a guest room, den, child’s room or even a living room, you can transform that entire room in a matter of minutes. While you are sure to come across daybeds in many different materials, whether it be cast iron, wicker, bamboo or even leather, a wooden daybed still seems to be the construction of choice by most. A wooden daybed can look more formal than metal varieties. White painted wood and knotty pine types of day beds typically look the most informal and can be an ideal choice for rustic or romantic themed living spaces. These kinds of daybed styles are also usually available with wooden drawers in the lower part of the furniture. In smaller homes with a limited amount of storage, the drawers can be perfect for storing bedding or even clothing or other belongings.
A darker wooden daybed may also have storage drawers, or they may be sleigh shaped and more airy in design. By day, these beds are a nice comfortable seating area to just sit back, read a book, watch a movie or even entertain some friends. By simply removing a few pillows, you instantly have a cozy sleeping place for any over night guest or permanent resident you may have in your home.
