A daybed is a piece of modern furniture that is commonly versatile as it can be used for different purposes whether it’s for relaxing, sleeping, or gaming. So we made a list of the best daybeds that you can choose perfectly for your home.

Combining bed and a sofa, daybeds are also known for their portability and looks. Some of them have headboards while others can fit a trundle underneath.

But before you go out there and choose, here are some of the things you need to consider before buying one.

The goods:

  • Versatility probably is the first feature to look at because even though most of them have storage underneath, not all of them can take in a trundle.
  • Durability because most daybeds are small, it might not accommodate bigger people.
  • Height because some are really low on the ground which is perfect for toddlers while some are higher than normal couches.
  • The looks because believe it or not, a beautiful looking daybed in a room makes a difference.

The bads to watch out for:

  • Assembly time as some look easy to build but are actually more complicated.
  • You might want to avoid smaller daybeds if you’re a tall person.
  • Not good value – some are expensive yet not comfortable to use.
