Day Beds

I'm all about functionality and practicality, and to me, "day beds" yell out practical and functional!



I've been wanting to invest in a good day bed for awhile now but never got around to doing it until we moved into a space with a solarium. What better than a beautiful day bed in the sun filled solarium where we can sit and read, have guests sleep in or just a lounge out area.

Here are just a few day bed ideas for you to consider:

1.Seating
Day beds are great for extra seating or a seating alternative in a small space, great for bedrooms. It's deep enough to fill up with pillows and use as a sofa or as a guest bed for guests or a simple afternoon nap. Not only that, but snuggle up on a day bed while watching a movie, it's one of the most comfy, romantic things!


2.Outdoors
Day beds are also great outdoor eye candy. Whether on a porch, backporch, back yard or just smack dab in the center of the yard, it's luxury magnified. Can't you just imagine a good girlfriend talk over coffee outside on a day bed???


3.Storage/A side thought
Day beds are also great if you have space underneath for extra storage and an afterthought in a space. Extra seating in a living room or family room where you can dress up but also leave aside as an accessory to the space.
