Imagine beautiful iron daybeds in a Victorian bedroom and you might imagine frills and extra bedding, but in fact, this is not likely to be the case. During Victorian times, what we would consider a modern daybed mattress and bedding was not the same as it was present at that time. In fact, you are not even likely to see this type of furniture within the bedroom at all. They were often placed in a fainting room, a room usually off the parlor or in the main area of the home, where a woman could go to recover from fainting spells usually caused by overheating or a shortness of breath due to the tight fitting corsets she wore.

With their sleek lines and simple construction, a modern daybed could fit in just about any and every room of the house. These beds are not only functional and sometimes necessary pieces of furniture, they are focal points adding their own personal decorative touches to the room.

Be sure that you enjoy the overall look of the piece. If you buy a poorly designed daybed with trundle and put it in your living room, it will simply look like an extra piece and will downplay the overall style of the room. However, buying quality reduces this risk tremendously.

You can also use darker colors in the bedding for the daybed. Look at the movement in the framing and the structure of the daybed. Curves and swirls definitely add a level of softness to the space. Straight lines do this less. When selecting the bed, choose which works for your needs.

However, the look and charm of these beds, and all of the layers of cushions and fine fabrics is something that has remained present throughout history. You will find modern elements to them today, including eco friendly mattress options and even upholstered headboards. Still, the look of them is very much still Victorian in many cases.

Metal daybeds were unheard of and therefore most were wood daybeds. Even the best mattresses were made up of cushions and draperies, which were added to the construction of the rope bed. During the 900`s through the 1700`s, it was more common to find long wooden chest and rope beds. All of those cushions would have made them very expensive and therefore it was less common for these pieces of "modern" bedroom furniture to be prominent in a home.

However, daybeds also differ from standard beds in that daybeds are commonly used as a sofa, making them ideal for use in living rooms, family rooms, dens, and bedrooms. However, because of this rather thin definition, many may still confuse a daybed with a Futon. Daybeds generally do not transform from couch to bed like a futon, and are more decorative than a futon as well, utilizing accessories such as covers, skirts, throw pillows, and comforters.
