The Essential Day Beds Buying Guide

One of the oldest types of bed dating back several centuries is the day bed. The reason the day beds are considered one of the most versatile is because it can be used for both sleeping and seating. Used in a child's room, the day bed provides sleeping and storage space, a unique combination when room is on the small side. The basic design style of the day bed is sides and a back that resemble a couch, usually designed with a twin bed mattress. The typical day beds sit higher than twin beds and are usually placed up against the wall.


Bed Frames for the Day Beds
The standard day bed is typically used for a single user and makes use of a twin size mattress. The overall design of the bed frames are created to look nice, mostly because they are so visible from the sides and the back. Most day bed frames are made from either wood or metal, or a unique combination of both, as well as some upholstered varieties. Since this unique type of furniture can also be used as a sofa, take the time to ensure that the frame can support a sturdy mattress that is capable of supporting several people and a sleeper.

Day Bed Frame Materials
The average day bed is created to blend naturally with other pieces of bedroom furniture. The appearance of the piece is paramount when it comes to blending in a certain room, so make certain you carefully consider the style of the supporting furniture before you make your purchase. The upholstered frames are covered in a variety of fabrics and have a rather smooth surface. These make a softer backing for those seating on the bed like a couch. Wooden day bed frames are elegant because of the exposed grains and knot holes that make each piece unique. The wooden frames often are the heaviest of all day beds. The metal frames are a composite of several pieces that make up the sides and back, lighter in weight, less comfortable than the padded back upholstered style.

Day Beds Mattress Support System
When it comes to the support system for the day beds, there are usually two different styles for supporting the mattress. The first style, is considered the slat design, and makes the day bed very simple to take apart and assemble back together. The most common of day bed support systems is the link spring, typically used to replace the need for a box spring and is made of several grid-like springs that easily support the weight on the mattress.

The day beds usually care comprised of a twin bed mattress, so it should be noted that when shopping for this type bed you always need to carefully consider the style of mattress as well. If the mattress is going to be used for mostly sleeping, a firmer innerspring works fine. if the bed will also be used for plenty of seating, consider a mattress with a softer top for comfort.
