10 Dreamy Day Beds

When my daughter Bridget was little, she wanted a pretty day bed. I promised to get her a white iron one to match her pink and white bedroom. She loved that bed and so did I. Sometimes I think about replacing one of our love seats with one. For inspiration, I compiled 10 examples of dreamy day beds from Houzz.

Traditional Porch with Wooden Day Bed

A Scandinavian day bed is pretty, but I don’t know if it’s ideal for sitting upon.

You ‘d have to sit in the center and not on the ends. I do like the look though.

A day bed in a girl’s room is perfect for sleep-overs but can be used as seating area too.


Traditional Day Bed in Hallway

A clever idea for a stairway landing is to tuck a day bed in a window alcove.

Unused space can now be used for reading or even napping.

Another way to capitalize on space is to put a day bed under a stairway!


Eclectic Living Room by Los Angeles Interior Designers & Decorators Hillary Thomas Designs

In this living room, it’s hard to tell that the day bed is a day bed. It looks more like a sofa.

This is more what I have in mind if I decide to go the day bed route.

How about a hanging day bed? This would be great for a porch!


Traditional Bedroom by Covington Design-Build Firms Highland Homes, Inc.

An elegant day bed dressed in neutrals compliments this traditional space. Simple yet pretty.


Traditional Sunroom by Huntersville Interior Designers & Decorators Ally Whalen Design

A day bed is the perfect choice for a narrow space like this sun room.

Quaint and cozy defines this reading and napping space.

Drawers beneath the day bed provide easy storage of blankets and reading materials.

I don’t know what I love more about this day bed … the color or the structure.

This collection of dreamy day beds has given me some ideas. How about you?

  1. I love that first one the best!! Happy Wednesday!

  2. Marsha Sefcik says:

    I took apart my son’s bunk beds and we are using them as daybeds. I needed furniture for our reading room and our sunroom and this was a budget friendly fix. They have worked out wonderfully. Now that the temps has dropped, the one in the reading is becoming quite popular as it is next to the wood stove.

  3. All the day beds are wonderful. We bought a daybed for our youngest daughter, too. It was a pink iron one with painted floral china balls on the side posts. She took it to her house for her daughters who used it for years and now my friend’s granddaughter is enjoying it. Your post brings back memories of when we purchased it for her and how it is still being put to use!

  4. All of them are beautiful. I think the one under the stairs and the next one after that are my favorites though.
