You wouldn't leave the house without getting dressed - everyone feels more comfortable being seen dressed. Your daybed is no different. Stark and exposed, a naked daybed is a sad, sad thing, indeed. Dress up your daybed with sheeting and skirts that fit its style, and both you and your daybed will be more comfortable.
Daybed sheeting is pretty much the same as sheeting for a standard bed, with a few exceptions in some cases. Most daybeds support twin, twin extra long, and full mattresses and therefore require twin- , twin extra long-, or full-sized sheets. Daybed sheet sets come in a variety of fabrics, blends, and thread counts as well as colors and patterns. Mix and match to create the look you desire or get a matching set for a more traditional aesthetic.
Cotton remains the cool, comfortable choice for many when it comes to sheets or bedskirts for a daybed. Cotton-polyester blends are also popular for the durability and wrinkle resistance they provide. As far as up-and-coming fibers are concerned, bamboo is all the rage. Eco-friendly and super-soft, bamboo fibers are naturally anti-microbial, mildew-, and mold-resistant making them ideal for those with sensitive skin - perfect for use on kids daybeds.
Daybed bedskirts are constructed of similar materials and will either have 3 sides (since the back will not need a skirt) or will have slits to help it fit on either side of the frame. Daybed bedskirts serve well as dust ruffles and keep hidden storage and trundles just where they should be - out of sight.
Shopping for daybed sheeting should be a piece of cake. Just remember that daybeds are a slightly different version of the standard bed and may require some special considerations. Other than that, you should be free to choose from a variety of attractive sets to coordinate with any decor.
