My son is getting married next October (YAY!), and we’re going to have a full house for a few days.
So, while last year I redid his old room into a nice guest room, pictured below, I still have another room upstairs that is basically air-conditioned storage. :-(
I knew then that my daughter’s old dresser would go in that room; and, having a whitewashed light finish, it would look good against a soft color. You can see, yes, it does. Especially when I get some new knobs. :-)
So I have two more twin mattresses, as my daughter, at one time, had a daybed. That bed just got trashed over time, so now I need a new daybed in this bedroom.
It’s a small room with four doors leading into it (from the hall, bathroom, attic storage, and closet). So there’s not much wall space, and you have to leave room for all those doors to open. A daybed works really well and gives the room some floor space. Plus, I have a nice round ottoman I can use in there, too; and it would be perfect paired with a daybed.
We really don’t have that many overnight guests. A comfy extra room would be nice, though, when my family arrives for the wedding. And although I could use a trundle there, I’m not sure we need that at this point.
I did a queen sized upholstered daybed in my Showhouse room years ago, and I loved it. Apartment Therapy even did too! So, I’m not sure yet if I’ll go custom, like I did there, OR if I’ll go for something already made up. Pricing is good on some of these daybeds I’ve featured below and, well, it is, after all, a guest room that’s not often used.
So I’ve rounded up a few good ones today that I have checked out — a combo of high/low.
I just love a daybed, especially in a guest room. I imagine that when I have grandkids — someday ;-) — they might nap there.
Personally Curated Daybeds w/Exposed Frames
Fyi: These below have exposed frames and are also really cool and distinctive!
