Day beds are a fantastic alternative to either a sofa or a larger bed, and work especially well in smaller or multi-purpose spaces. More compact than a futon, yet large enough to accommodate a twin-size mattress (or two if you use the trundle option available on some day beds), a day bed is looks great when used as a sofa or as a bed. Pillows can line the perimetre of the head and side panels for an appropriate daytime look, while a cozy quilt and a plump sleeping pillow readies a day bed for the night. Day bed frames come in a variety of styles ranging from quaint metal curlicue frames to chunky wooden frames - perfect for any d?cor, whether contemporary or more nostalgic. Dressings for day beds are as individual as the homeowner, and can be used to further personalize the look of a day bed. Unlike a typical bed with a box spring, day beds usually have a metal grid connecting the panels of the frame and acting as a mattress support. Therefore, it is crucial to have a quality mattress on the day bed for maximum comfort. As day beds fit standard twin-size mattresses, selecting a mattress for a day bed is as simple as it is for a regular bed, with choices in soft, medium, and firm supports available.
