Nut as bulky as an additional bed but quirkier than a sleeper couch, daybeds are incredibly practical and stylish alternatives! More versatile than other options, they can easily work in your living room, bedroom, home office, or even in a small studio apartment. Plus, if you choose a daybed with pop up trundle, you get two sleeping solutions without sacrificing more of your floor real estate.
While they're rather space-optimizing pieces of furniture, it's still vital to make sure that they fit properly. That's why we recommend measuring the exact spot where you're planning on placing them, without forgetting about the additional space that you'll need when the trundle is pulled out.
To give you an idea, the most common daybed mattress is a 38"x75" twin size, but keep in mind that not every model comes with one.
Because your daybed with pop up trundle will be such a big part of your room both when you're using it to sleep and to relax during the day, you really don't want it to look out of place.
Consider your interior style. For example, lighter wooden finishes work better in smaller rooms and contemporary settings, whereas darker ones can emphasize some vintage or traditional inspiration, especially in large rooms.
Metal daybeds usually amplify their focus on the sleeping side of things, and they often showcase retro vibes or more decorative designs, such as in shabby chic and French country settings.
If, on the contrary, you'd rather have a daybed with trundle that looks more similar to traditional pieces of furniture, you should probably look for an upholstered model, even better if it's in one of the colors of your room's palette.
A little tip? To emphasize its 'day' aspect, add some accent pillows to it!
