Modern Daybed - A Modern Look For Any Room. When searching or shopping for a daybed, we often do not realize the many styles that are now offered to us by manufacturers. Daybeds used to come in pretty basic styles and usually were of wooden construction and for the most part, quite boring in an architectural sense. The furniture industry has come a long way and continues to reinvent these practical yet stylish pieces of furniture.
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.
The daybed frame has become more lightweight and flexible throughout the years to make them easier to move from one location to another. Being able to transport these beds easily along with the beautiful and elegant styles they have to offer is one of the reasons they are still so popular today. Most modern daybeds are made from both a wood or metal frame and the mattress sits on top of a linked spring. They come in many different designs and prices so there is sure to be one that suits your taste and needs.
Daybeds are generally used for sleeping during the daytime (as the name suggests). 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.
Also keep in mind that the features and bedding added to it will also play a role in what it looks like and how it functions: If you are after a softer look, consider comforter sets with more thickness. A floral pattern will definitely soften the room. Use color as a way to help to soften the room, too. For example, the linens themselves can be white or other soft colors for a more enjoyable look. However, the bed frame`s color also matters. For a softer look, choose a white, contemporary daybed.
