Making Space for Guests

Summertime often brings the arrival of guests, but what's a host to do if space is at a premium?  Well, a daybed is a practical and affordable solution.

First, there are many types and styles available. And second, it's actually pretty easy to squeeze a daybed into an existing space, even in tight quarters.

So, let's have a look at some options!

You could add this lovely white painted daybed to an existing guest room, and thus, accommodate a family or several children. In addition, many daybeds also contain a trundle bed 
(a twin pullout drawer with a mattress tucked under the daybed).

An upholstered daybed can double as additional seating in a living or family room or even in a study.

This Swedish style daybed could pull double duty as dining room seating
 and additional sleeping space for a guest.

Here's a versatile bamboo daybed that would look fabulous in a living area. 
It's perfect for a small studio apartment.
This traditional living space incorporates a daybed, 
demonstrating how easily daybeds can fit into any style room.

A wicker daybed could be worked into a summer porch, a cabin, or even a nursery.
While a contemporary daybed could easily float in a loft area or an office.
And lastly, here's a great nook area that is not only a good place to curl up with a
 book, but perfect for an overnight guest.
