The daybed has been around for a very long time. You'll be astounded to know that daybeds were first found in China, during the Ming dynasty from 1368 to 1644. Over the many years many different styles and options have become available; the simple purpose of the daybed, saving space, has stayed the same.
It used to be that daybeds were for little girl's rooms, but this has changed over the past few years. There are many varieties of daybeds. Family rooms, dens, sunrooms and bedrooms are all great places for a daybed. Daybeds offer seating during the day and a comfortable beds for sleeping at night. They are the perfect answer for any room or apartment that has little living space. The daybed is now a very popular piece.
Daybed frames consist of two side panels and one back panel. Each frame will hold a twin mattress. When purchasing a daybed you can expect that will be some type of minor assembly.
The day link spring used in daybeds provide a study bed. The daybed link spring is a cross bar that goes from the two side panels across the front of the frame. This provides full support for the mattress and the individuals sleeping or sitting on it. The daybed link spring is available in several models and can be bought separately as well.
Some daybed models offer a pop-up trundle bed, which gives you even more sleeping room. The pop-up trundle gives you a king size bed instead of the smaller twin mattress. During the day it is hidden under the bed. Another option is the traditional trundle pulls out and offers a second sleeping surface. They do not elevate as the pop-up trundle but stay in place on the floor. Trundle daybeds are excellent for sleepovers or for siblings sharing a room. Both types of trundles are simple to use; a child can even pull the trundle in and out.
Adding some accessories to your daybed can really add an elegant touch. A comforter matching window treatments will really jazz up any room. Some coordinating decorative bolster pillows and linens will really add that special touch. Adding these few accessories will make your room a warm and inviting place to be.
Daybeds are the perfect bed. By serving as both seating and a cozy bed, they are a two for one piece of furniture. Plus, daybeds are simple to use and won't take up the room a regular bed does. It's not surprising that daybeds have become a common piece of furniture.
