Daybeds are popping up all over our favorite design blogs and magazines. There are so many ways to use this practical piece of furniture in nearly any room of your home. Here are our three favorite ways to use one.
Idea #1: Room Divider
If you have an open living and dining space, a daybed is the perfect way to visually divide these two spaces without making things feel closed off. Because they don’t have a back, they don’t block the view of either space. Plus, you’ll love the option to sit facing the living room or dining room. A win for entertaining!
Idea #2: Nursery Nap Zone
A daybed is a perfect solution for a nursery–it offers a place to read, nap, or snuggle with little ones. When nursery days are over this versatile piece of furniture could easily move to another room in the house.
Idea #3: Window Seat
Who doesn’t love a good window seat? Use a daybed to get the look and feel of a window seat without the price of a custom built-in. A daybed in front of a low window keeps the view wide open, and gives you a cozy spot to read a book or sip your coffee.
Why stop at three? A daybed could also work as an entryway perch, a bench at the end of a bed, in a dressing room or walk-in closet, or as extra seating (and secret nap spot) in an office…the options are endless! How would you use a daybed?
