ppsm. Daybeds. July 12th , 2018.
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 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.
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.
No longer are we prisoners of our own tastes and styles, you can now find a daybed to suit us all. I am particularly fond of Modern daybeds. 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.
In contrast to a Chaise daybed, a Sleigh daybed uses a more traditional design, inspired by the Victorian Era, utilizing classic lines, and decorative accents. This provides an impression of elegance and sophistication. The above are the main differences between a daybed, and standard beds or futons. Hopefully this article has given you clearer definition as to what a daybed really is. With this in mind, you should have all the necessary tools for you to make an informed decision the next time you are shopping for a daybed.
