The contemporary daybeds have a new design with the side boards replaced by a metal frame mechanism. This mechanism is used to fold the mattress. So in just a few seconds you can transform the daybed into a regular bed, with no effort. This type of furniture is very functional because it can handle consistent usage. And you can use it to modify the design of the room where it is situated, because you can add some colorful cushions. The modern daybed is a better option than the classical sofa because it offers both comfort and functionality.
Daybeds may also incorporate a trundle unit as well. Trundle units allow for an extra mattress to be stored underneath, to be pulled out for extra sleeping space when needed. You can choose a pop-up trundle unit, where the extra mattress can be rolled and elevated to the same height of the daybed, converting it into a king-sized sleeping area. The other option for trundle units is a pull-out, where the extra mattress is rolled out on wheels or a glider. However, these do not elevate to the daybeds height, forcing you to sleep much lower to the ground.
From the beginning of the 1700`s to the middle part of the 1800`s the daybed frame began to take on a more elegant design. They were given names like "a duchesse brisee", "chair `a duchesse", "sofa da reposo" and the "kangaroo` day-bed". Some of these were adorned with beautiful drapes and made to look elegant while others were plain and simple. From the mid 1800`s to the first part of the nineteenth century daybeds were used mainly as a place to sit and rest or to lie down for a short period of time. They took on a variety of different styles throughout this era. They ranged from hard flat surfaces to daybed frames with cushions placed on top to increase the comfort level. By the end of the late nineteenth century, designers began experimenting even more and many unusual designs were made. Some were practical and useful while others were not.
The investment in any bedroom furniture should be done with care. Buy quality. Ensure that the furniture offers function in the way that you need it to. Be sure that you enjoy the overall look of the piece. If you buy a poorly designed daybed with trundle and put it in your living room, it will simply look like an extra piece and will downplay the overall style of the room. However, buying quality reduces this risk tremendously.
Also keep in mind that the features and bedding added to it will also play a role in what it looks like and how it functions: If you are after a softer look, consider comforter sets with more thickness. A floral pattern will definitely soften the room. Use color as a way to help to soften the room, too. For example, the linens themselves can be white or other soft colors for a more enjoyable look. However, the bed frame`s color also matters. For a softer look, choose a white, contemporary daybed.
