What features should I look for in daybeds?
A daybed frame is generally raised off the ground, providing plenty of room for storage underneath. This can consist of built-in drawers or open space to stash holiday decorations, as well as a spot for a trundle bed that pulls out to create an extra sleeping spot. If you’re looking for a daybed that can sleep two people, find one that has the trundle included so you don’t have to purchase one separately. For added comfort and a piece that feels more sofa-like, try an upholstered daybed. If you really want some extra room to spread out, look for a full-size daybed, as most come in twin sizes to fit smaller spaces.
What’s the difference between a daybed and a futon
Although they are both very similar in the purposes they serve, there are some major differences between the two that every buyer should know:
Futons: Think of futons as sofas that double as beds. Because their primary function is seating, they need to be a bit firmer to account for more frequent use by multiple people. A futon needs to fold up and down to switch functions, so often the overall sleeping area will be slightly larger than that of a daybed.

Daybeds: Think of daybeds as beds that double as sofas. Their primary function is for sleeping, so they will feature an actual twin-sized (or larger) mattress instead of cushions, and will typically be on the softer side. Daybeds do not fold up and down, so the seating depth will be greater than a futon, but can be easily adjusted by adding pillows as backrests.
