The top reasons to invest in a day bed

With more and more people realising their versatility, day beds are becoming increasingly popular. They are becoming the go-to piece of furniture to have in the home, and we are not surprised!

Day beds are great for multipurpose use, as they can function as more than just a bed, but a seating space too.

There are so many benefits to investing in a day bed, with one of the top reasons being that day beds can give a house guest space, without having to devote a whole room to their sleeping arrangement.

Below we have listed a few more benefits of a day bed:

Easy to style

Day beds are a great way to add a statement piece of furniture to an office room, a spare room or even in your lounge area! Day beds don’t take up that much room, but even though they are small, you can still make it stand out by adding stylish linens and pillows. The great thing about day beds is that they can blend into any space without looking like a bed until the person using it is ready to go to sleep for the night.


Day beds are very versatile as they can blend into any space and adapt according to your specific needs. You could even use the day bed as a sofa in your lounge, so when people come over there is extra seating. As well as this, some day beds are known as ‘trundle beds’, and this type of bed comes with an extra bed underneath, and it pulls out like a drawer would. These beds are particularly popular in children’s bedrooms as it makes sleepover much easier, as you don’t have to blow up an air mattress or get the sleeping bags out!

Always comfortable

Inflatable mattresses and futons have the advantage of being portable, however, this doesn’t mean you should compromise a good night’s sleep. Air mattresses can easily leak throughout the night, and you might find that you wake up in the morning laying on the hard floor. So, choosing a real mattress alongside a day bed will make your sleep a comfortable one. If you use your day bed frequently for seating, or you have guest over regularly, you might find that a firmer mattress will last a lot longer, as it will be able to stand the constant use.

Our favourite day beds:

Pine Trundle Guest Bed

This Bed Guru day bed is a highly manoeuvrable under bed guest bed. An under-bed day bed makes it easy to pull out or store away under other beds, which makes it great to have for child sleepovers. However, even though this bed is made to fit underneath another, with stylish linens and lavish pillows, there is no reason why this couldn’t be used as another piece of seating in an office or living room area.
