f_toldo. Daybeds. December 16th , 2017.
Decorating any room in your home with a Modern daybed, whether it be a home office, living room, guest room or teens room, allows you the versatility and style that you desire for your home without overpowering any other key elements you may want to show case. Offering you style and functionality these daybeds are a wonderful decorative piece that serves a dual purpose. Making them a must have.
A daybed frame is quite different from that of a standard bed. Daybed frames usually are comprised of two arms and a back, imitating the basic structure of a sofa. There are two common types of frames; the link spring, and the platform. The link spring frame is a metal grid that acts as a box spring, and is attached to the frame to support the mattress. There is usually a gap between the frame and mattress to allow for bedding and making the bed. As for the Platform-style frame, the mattress is supported by either a Bunkie board or a slat rack. A Bunkie board, resembling a box spring without the coil work but thinner, fits inside the frame and is designed to support the mattress evenly.
The daybed frame has undergone many changes throughout the ages but they never lost their appeal. Today they have many purposes. Some people use them as the main bed for homes that have tiny bedrooms. They are also used as beds for guest and as a decorative item.
The contemporary daybeds have a new design with the side boards replaced by a metal frame mechanism. This mechanism is used to fold the mattress. So in just a few seconds you can transform the daybed into a regular bed, with no effort. This type of furniture is very functional because it can handle consistent usage. And you can use it to modify the design of the room where it is situated, because you can add some colorful cushions. The modern daybed is a better option than the classical sofa because it offers both comfort and functionality.
What Were Daybeds Like in the Victorian Bedroom. 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.
