A daybed is a furniture piece intended for lounging or napping during the day. Typically located in a living room or a common room, daybeds closely resemble a cross between a sofa and bed and are often made out of metal, wood, or wicker. Daybeds, both indoor and outdoor, are considered more informal than a traditional sofa or couch, and are typically longer to accommodate for a range of sleeping positions. Most outdoor daybeds can be found adjacent to an outdoor pool or in a cool and shaded area, thus providing the perfect place for a daytime snooze.

What is a daybed?

A daybed is a combination of a bed, a sofa, and a lounge chair used for resting and relaxing either indoors or outdoors. It is differentiated in appearance from a typical bed by its headboard being placed along the length of the daybed rather than at the head.

How do you make a daybed look like a couch?

To make a daybed look more like a couch than a bed, use throw blankets and pillows. Place larger pillows at the corners and then add other pillows of various shapes, sizes, and textures. Bolstering the back and “arms” of the daybed before adding pillows is also an option as daybeds are deeper than the standard sofa.

What size is a daybed?

Although a daybed can come in different sizes, it traditionally is the size of a twin bed mattress. As such, the standard size of a daybed is 38 by 75 inches (97 x 191 cm).
