Unique & Playful Design Concepts Using Daybeds & Trundles

Daybeds and trundles are two pieces of furniture that often get overlooked. They’re not as common as a sofa or a dining table, but they can be just as versatile and stylish. This article will explore some unique and playful design concepts using daybeds and trundles. From guest rooms to playrooms and more, these ideas will help you see these pieces of furniture in a whole new light.

What are Daybeds and Trundles?

A daybed can be used as both a sofa and a bed. Daybeds are typically twin-sized, making them perfect for small spaces, while trundles are usually stored in the unoccupied space underneath. This allows for a second bed to be available whenever someone sleeps over, without taking up more space in the room. Daybeds are also able to be made with a storage drawer underneath the mattress, which is perfect for extra blankets or pillows. 


Our Naples Daybed Supreme (above) is in fact two separate daybeds. This piece utilizes locking hardware in the middle that allows each side to be put together or left apart to create one large lounge or two smaller ones. And with two twin trundles underneath, there are plenty of extra beds available when visitors are over.


How to Style Daybeds and Trundles

When it comes to decorating a home, there are endless possibilities. But when choosing furniture, sometimes it can take work to decide what will be the best fit for your space. Daybeds and trundles are excellent options for adding style and function to a room. Due to the variety of styles, it’s easy to pair them with various other decor styles.

Here are some unique and playful ideas for styling daybeds and trundles:

  1. Create a reading nook: Add a few throw pillows and blankets to make your daybed or trundle more inviting. Then, pile up some books nearby to cozy up with a good read.
  2. Make it a lounge area: Want a place to relax? Add some floor cushions or an ottoman to your daybed or trundle to create the perfect spot for unwinding.
  3. Turn it into an extra bed: If you have overnight guests, your daybed or trundle can easily be transformed into an extra bed. Just add some sheets and comforters, and you’re all set!
  4. Set it up as a play area: Place a daybed or trundle bed in the basement or bonus room for your kids. Add some fun toys and games, and let them enjoy their little retreat!

With so many possibilities, there’s no reason not to incorporate a daybed or trundle into your home décor.

The Delray Freestanding Bed (above right) has been customized to have a hidden twin trundle pull out on the front, allowing for a space saving extra bed that is both convenient and storable.
