As I said in my nursery inspiration post, we definitely want a day bed in the baby’s room so I have started to have a look at some of the best options. There are a few reasons we have decided it’s a good thing to have in this room ranging from being able to house family members who want to come and stay, an extra bed for either Jules or I to escape to when the sleep deprivation gets too much, a cosy place I can nap and feed the baby and I think it will help make the room feel welcoming and become almost a second living space.
I have always, always wanted an Ercol day bed but it doesn’t quite fit our requirements that the bed be inexpensive and sleep two. It will just have to stay on my wish list for another few years!
Here are a few day beds that do meet our requirements but also a few others that aren’t quite right for us but may work for you…
I’ve always really loved this day bed and it would work really well in the room but it’s just a bit too expensive for my budget. Two pack day bed from Loaf (they have a couple of other great options, too).
I would loooooove to have this piece in my life and it would look amazing in the room but it doesn’t sleep two and it’s a bit too pricey. It’s definitely on my wish list for the future though. Day Bed One from Another Country.
Quite a sweet option for a child with a nice decorative detail but it doesn’t sleep two. Jenny Lind daybed from Land of Nod
I LOVE this mid century design BUT West Elm don’t sell the day bed in the UK, only America. Boo! Mid-Century Day Bed from West Elm.
This is a good option as it converts to a double bed and I like the simple design and I could easily personalise the frame with paint. TARVA Day Bed from Ikea.
My dream day bed – I will have it one day! You can buy one similar from Layer Home.
A very practical option as it converts to a king size bed, it’s well priced and it has under bed storage, which always appeals. HEMNES day bed from Ikea.
It looks like there will be a trip to Ikea soon and as long as I’m treated to a hotdog at the end I’ll be happy 😉
