Day beds not only look extremely Instagrammable, but they actually come with many benefits too. I thought that I would take a look into why everyone should have a day bed somewhere in the house, whether it be the living room working part-time as a sofa, or in the guest room working as a bed, but only when needed.

Here are 5 great benefits to owning a day bed. If these don’t make you want one, then nothing will:

1.       Easy to Dress

One of the great advantages of having a day bed around the home is that it can be extremely easy to dress. Day beds always look beautiful when they are dressed in simplistic sheets and blankets, with numerous bright pillows on them. Unlike a double bed or a king-size, the day bed is pretty easy to make up when you have guests staying over, or you fancy getting away from your snoring partner.

2. Very Functional 

Daybeds are great for their functionality. They work as both a sofa, and also an actual bed. They’re great for guests, great for a place to read a book and great if you just fancy a change of bedroom scenery. 

Some day beds can even transform into a comfortable double bed for further functionality, like the Snug bed from Happy Beds

3. Comfortable 

Rather than forcing your guests to sleep on the sofa, or having a blow-up mattress on the floor, the daybed offers them comfortability. You can dress the day bed in multiple cushions and a thick duvet, as well as purchasing a reliable and comfortable mattress.

4. Designs and Sizes to Suit Every Room 

There are so many options of day beds out there, that you really are spoilt for choice. You have a choice of materials, sizes and colours, similar to as if you’re choosing an actual bed.

5. Space-Saving 

Day beds are extremely space-saving. As the day bed works as both a sofa and a place to snooze, you won’t have to make a separate purchase for both pieces of furniture and magically find space for both too. 

Some daybeds even come with a trundle underneath, so that you can basically pull out a separate bed from a hidden section.
