Daybeds are generally used for sleeping during the daytime (as the name suggests). However, daybeds also differ from standard beds in that daybeds are commonly used as a sofa, making them ideal for use in living rooms, family rooms, dens, and bedrooms. However, because of this rather thin definition, many may still confuse a daybed with a Futon. Daybeds generally do not transform from couch to bed like a futon, and are more decorative than a futon as well, utilizing accessories such as covers, skirts, throw pillows, and comforters.
The most important thing about a full daybed is its size. A normal daybed does not need to occupy a large space as, unlike that of a regular bed, that is of full size, which means that the space its going to occupy will have to be bigger than that if it were occupied by a mere daybed. One thing common amongst daybeds is that in the day, they are very comfortable to sit on, then in the night they can become very cozy to sleep in. There are also some beds that are very similar to daybeds; for example platform beds, which also save space.
While daybed bedding is designed for the twin size mattress, there are some significant differences, the most noticeable being the daybed comforter. A daybed comforter is 52" wide x 99" long while a standard twin comforter is 62" wide x 86" long. If you would like to use a regular twin sized comforter on your daybed, keep in mind that you will have a 10-inch overhang (width) to contend with and it will be 13" shorter than a comforter designed for a daybed. A daybed comforter is intended to hang parallel to the daybed`s back rather than a standard twin comforter that is parallel to the headboard.
If you prefer to transform the daybed into some comfortable couch so your family and your guests may sit in, you can add some cushions that will compliment the color of the daybed covering. You can go for the elegant touch given off by the tassels or employ brightly colored patterned cushions. The pillows may be added and they can be in various shapes and sizes.
