Apart from the basic single day bed frame, there are additional features that can be found in this style of bed. These styles are:
Featuring an additional pull-out bed, a day bed with a trundle becomes a double bed when the trundle is pulled out. This style of day bed can sleep two people, one on the sofa part of the day bed, and one on the pull-out mattress.
A day bed with storage can include either drawers underneath the bed or built-in shelves in the frame. This combines a chest of drawers, shelves, a bed, and a sofa in one. This type of day bed is a great option for small rooms, or children’s bed rooms, as any clutter from during the day can be easily stored away at night.
Day beds are available in a variety of materials – some look more like beds, others look more like sofas. Whatever your style, you’re sure to find a day bed to suit.
A fabric day bed looks like an upholstered sofa and features a fabric back rest to keep you comfy while sitting. The base is much wider than an average sofa, which makes a comfortable bed.
Featuring painted metal piping instead of upholstered fabric, a metal day bed has a sturdy frame with an industrial look. This classic style includes neutral colours, such as white day beds, which work well in many rooms and are an especially good choice if you often change your décor.
Available in neutral colours, a wooden day bed is a sturdy choice, which can stand the test of time and many style changes. This material adds a simple, rustic look to a room, at an affordable price too.
A sofa bed features mechanisms which turn the sofa into a bed, such as by pulling the frame out or clicking the back into place. Whereas a day bed is already set up for bedtime. Both these types of bed can make a great choice for a multipurpose room or guest room, as they can be used as a sofa and a bed with just a few quick changes.

Absolutely! A day bed can be used as a regular bed. We recommend using the same standard single mattress on a day bed that would be used on a regular bed. That way you will be getting the same comfy night’s sleep wherever you lay your head.
Yes, as you pick your own single mattress for a day bed, you select the comfort grade. You can choose from memory foam, pocket spring, ActiGel® and more comfortable mattresses. As you choose the mattress for your day bed, you can make sure you get the best support and comfort for your sleep.
Day beds can be slightly bigger than single beds because of their frame. The day bed frame is often around 200cm (79 inches) long, so be sure to measure your space carefully when choosing this type of bed. Nevertheless, all our day beds at Dreams comfortably fit a 3ft single mattress. Also, be sure to leave enough room for the pull-out function if you choose a day bed with a trundle.
