Small Space? Consider the Versatile Daybed

Daybed with trundleOne of the biggest drawbacks to living in a small space is lacking a comfortable space for overnight guests. If you would rather not give up your own bed or balk at the idea of putting your mother on a blowup mattress, you might consider a daybed.

As those living in small spaces know, choosing furniture that serves dual purposes is a necessity. A daybed fits the bill: It can be used as a bed and as a seating area. Plus, you can store luggage or seasonal wardrobe items underneath.

Many of us don’t have the luxury of a guest bedroom, but daybeds can turn home offices or sewing rooms into guest rooms.

If you have multiple overnight guests or kids who love to have sleepovers, a daybed with a trundle underneath offers double the sleeping area. Some trundles stay on the ground, while others can be elevated to form one large bed.

Daybeds come in a variety of styles. The metal daybed is the traditional look, but these days wood daybeds and upholstered daybeds are becoming more popular as they tend to look more like a sofa when not in use. Our Donovan daybed is a contemporary take on the daybed, with faux leather gray fabric, baseball stitching and gently sleighed padded arms and back. Add a coverlet and pillows, and it looks like a sofa. Slide out the trundle, and you have sleeping for two guests.
