Daybeds are not only practical, they can be used as a feature in a bedroom. If the color of the room is white, deciding on the daybed style will be easier if the room is themed. Daybeds come in all types of materials to suit the budget and to cater to individual tastes.
Wooden daybeds are very solid and usually come in styles to suit bedroom designs of older times. If the look is country, antique, art nouveau, or art deco, wood is ideal. Wooden daybeds start at around $400.00.
Metal daybeds, including brass and iron, can accommodate many themes from antique to modern. Lighter than wood and a little less expensive, metal is good as a money saving option. Metal daybeds can be found for a couple of hundred dollars.
Leather & Vinyl
Leather and vinyl are the most expensive daybeds. They're available for $600.00 as a minimum. Choose leather or vinyl for the most luxurious feel to a room. Designs are varied and can suit many themes.
Before purchasing a daybed, research styles and pricing online. Many retailers have catalogs on their websites, so be sure to check out any sales. Consider buying from online stores, sometimes it's worth paying higher shipping costs in order to find a bargain.
