Furniture Buying Guide - Daybeds
Of days and...beds! The humble daybed.
Functional, timeless, and versatile. Daybeds can be used for seating in the day and sleeping in the night - day 'bed'. They are beds with a back and sides that always come in Twin Size (38" x 75"). This clever combination is by no means a contemporary invention but dates back nearly to the 5th century. Why reinvent the wheel, just give it a new spin!
Today daybeds come in many varieties (wood, metal, wicker, upholstered, trundle or a combination of materials) and styles (traditional, transitional, contemporary, canopy, mission to sleigh). They make a great sofa/bed combination in your home; be it the guest room, den, office, sunroom or kid's room. Total Bedroom Furniture, a recognized leader in the U.S. for top quality bedroom furniture and accessories, has a vast range at exceptional prices to suit your every design and budget requirement. Our interior designers have scoured the furniture markets to bring you the best quality daybeds, hand picked for style, durability and price value. We personally review and inspect every item in the manufacturer's showroom prior to offering it on our online store to ensure that when you receive your product, you will be completely satisfied.
For wooden daybeds, the options are maple, oak, pine, mahogany, cherry, walnut or rosewood. These also come in colors ranging from black, dark (medium, light) to natural wood finish. While cedar will provide a rustic atmosphere, oak may spell elegance. There is something about the metal bed that makes it score over others easily. A choice in heavy metal like iron would lend itself well to a traditional home design. Total Bedroom Furniture daybeds are manufactured of genuine brass, plated brass, cast zinc, cast aluminum, steel, iron, wood, wicker and rattan. They also come with a 10-year manufacturer's warranty, a clear indication of their quality.
The varied finishes in metal offer fantastic design options to suit your home, whether styled with contemporary, traditional or transitional looks. While a wicker bed would brighten up any decor since its adornment lies in the mattress, cushions and daybed linen (would generally include one daybed comforter, daybed cover or bed skirt and three standard pillow shams). The daybed cover or bed skirt (often frills) is the fabric that drops all the way from the mattress top to the floor on the front three sides. This just makes it look more neat and tailored.
There are two types of daybed trundles, a pop-up trundle or drawer trundle. The drawer or roll-out trundle simply rolls out from under the daybed to create another twin-size sleeping space, perfect for kid's sleepovers. Pop-up daybed trundles are also extremely popular, as they can transform your twin size daybed into a king size bed (76" x 80"). In the lift-up or pop-up trundle you roll out the bed and unfold the legs for support.
Total Bedroom Furniture has directly partnered with over 45 leading brand names in furniture manufacturing (including Fashion Bed Group, Hillsdale Furniture, Iron Beds of America, Accent Specialty, Powell, Old Adirondack, and many more), to offer you the best in quality and price. The ever-popular daybed continues to be on a roll, what with its multi-tasking abilities to play the role of a bed, couch and a bed within a bed!
