Can a Daybed Soften the Look of Your Living Room? What would adding contemporary daybeds do for your living room? Although it is not uncommon to use these beds in this area of the home, many people wonder what the overall style consequences would be of placing this type of furniture in the living room. It is a highly functional solution. If you have a small living space and need a bed that can serve both as a couch and a bed for guests, this option works well. It is affordable, too. But, what does it do to the style of the room?
Often bedding sets are sold that include the bedskirt, a comforter, and two or three pillow shams that can easily covert the sleep space into a fashionable settee. The colors and patterns allow for easy decorating to suit almost any room and any style. Whether you prefer the look of an English country cottage or a more modern style, there is an ensemble that will complement almost any room. For those who have limited space, such as a small apartment where the bedroom doubles for the living room, the transition is an easy fix. Small one room apartments can now have style that is welcoming under any circumstances.
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.
For a more modern look and perhaps one that gives you less of a soft look, go with a wrought iron daybed instead of the traditional polished metal. You can also use darker colors in the bedding for the daybed. Look at the movement in the framing and the structure of the daybed. Curves and swirls definitely add a level of softness to the space. Straight lines do this less. When selecting the bed, choose which works for your needs.
Finally, there are 4 types of daybeds you can choose from: The Standard Daybed, Canopy Daybed, Chaise Daybed, and Sleigh Daybed. Standard Daybeds are available in a number of styles, and can feature trundle bed additions. Even though they do not convert from a couch to a sleeper like a futon, the one thing all standard daybeds have in common is that they are adaptable. They can be made to appear like a couch while functioning as a primary or additional sleeping space.
