Daybeds are wonderful bedroom furniture pieces that will look beautiful anywhere in your home. From guest rooms, home offices, and even your living room. If you have a spare room in your home, and just aren't sure what to do to it, a twin size daybed can transform the room.
Use your daybed as a place for relaxation for working from home, reading a book, or watching a movie. Daybed features like roll-out trundles and storage areas are always a plus. If you're thinking about turning your extra room into an Airbnb getaway, a daybed with storage drawers is ideal. Give guests an area to store their clothes and belongings. If you're going for a farmhouse style, wood daybeds are always a fabulous option.
Some daybeds look very similar to modern couches. I recommend those for a home office. The couch style ones usually are built for a twin size mattresses. Metal daybeds are also popular among styles. If you're thinking about putting a daybed in your living room, I think a metal frame would look best.
Since most upholstered twin daybeds don't have a typical headboard at the top of the bed, you're able to place a daybed in small corners of rooms, like your living room. Don't think of a daybed as just an extra sleeping space you'll never use. Put a memory foam mattress on it, and you've got yourself a comfortable bed. My favorite part about daybeds is that most of the time, they don't require a box spring.
They're already cheaper than most bed frames, and then you get to save money on not purchasing a box spring! If your spare bedroom has been a project you've been setting aside for a while, you know exactly what you need for it. Once you get a daybed, you can pick a color scheme for comforters and go from there for the rest of the room's decor.

Twin daybeds would work well in large and small spaces. I even think they look amazing on backyard patio areas for lounging. You can get creative when you're using daybed frames for patio furniture. A solid wood frame would be an excellent choice for summertime decor.
Full-size daybeds are great if you have enough space, but if you just plan on using them for naps in your home office or lounging space, a twin size should suffice. If your home is the go-to spot for sleepovers, twin daybeds would be perfect for the kids' rooms.
Whether you have a small apartment, farmhouse, or cottage style home, a beautiful daybed is an excellent piece of furniture to have if you want to add some glam.
