What Were Daybeds Like in the Victorian Bedroom. Imagine beautiful iron daybeds in a Victorian bedroom and you might imagine frills and extra bedding, but in fact, this is not likely to be the case. During Victorian times, what we would consider a modern daybed mattress and bedding was not the same as it was present at that time. In fact, you are not even likely to see this type of furniture within the bedroom at all. They were often placed in a fainting room, a room usually off the parlor or in the main area of the home, where a woman could go to recover from fainting spells usually caused by overheating or a shortness of breath due to the tight fitting corsets she wore.
With the introduction of daybed covers which are similar to a bedskirt but fitted to mattress, what once was a piece of furniture that was hidden away in a spare room covered with last year`s Christmas wrapping paper has become the focal point of many rooms.
The modern daybeds with storage facilities are offering you not only a place to sleep for your guests, but also some extra storage space. For example you can buy a daybed for your child`s room. When he gets older, he will have friends over for the night. The daybed will be perfect in this situation. In the meanwhile, you can benefit from its storage benefits.
In contrast to a Chaise daybed, a Sleigh daybed uses a more traditional design, inspired by the Victorian Era, utilizing classic lines, and decorative accents. This provides an impression of elegance and sophistication. The above are the main differences between a daybed, and standard beds or futons. Hopefully this article has given you clearer definition as to what a daybed really is. With this in mind, you should have all the necessary tools for you to make an informed decision the next time you are shopping for a daybed.
When there is need for extra sleeping room the problem has been solved. Imagine a single bed that has become a sofa in style and usage. It is possible today. Starting with the construction, today we can find them made of iron, brass, and wood. No longer does this piece of furniture look like a spare item stuck in the middle of a room like a huge white elephant. Quite the contrary!
