The first question is simple. A daybed is a three-sided frame - two sides and a back - built to accommodate standard twin-size mattresses. It is a dual-use piece of furniture that serves as a sofa during the day and is easily converted into a comfortable bed for sleeping at night. Daybeds are appreciated for their functionality as well as their decorative attributes. Converting the daybed from sofa to bed typically requires nothing more than removing a couple of cushions and, perhaps, a daybed cover.
When shopping for a daybed, be sure to look for quality. There are many of these types of beds on today's market, but like anything else, cheap usually means inferior quality. A daybed must be strong to stand up to its double duty of providing seating and being a good place to sleep, so look for a model that is built sturdily of solid materials, either wood or strong metal, so that it will hold up to extraordinary wear or tear that is usually given to this piece of furniture.
While daybed bedding is designed for the twin size mattress, there are some significant differences, the most noticeable being the daybed comforter. A daybed comforter is 52" wide x 99" long while a standard twin comforter is 62" wide x 86" long. If you would like to use a regular twin sized comforter on your daybed, keep in mind that you will have a 10-inch overhang (width) to contend with and it will be 13" shorter than a comforter designed for a daybed. A daybed comforter is intended to hang parallel to the daybed's back rather than a standard twin comforter that is parallel to the headboard.
Daybed frames are available in solid wood that will give you an authentic look. If you are looking for a rustic atmosphere then you can go in for cedar. For a cottage effect, white charm would be ideal and for a elegant traditional look the one to go for is oak. Also painted wooden daybeds are available. You can pick one which complements the room where you intend to put the daybed.
