If you have a day bed, it is a great asset in your home, as it makes such a comfortable seating area as well as a useful and cozy guest bed. The important thing is that it looks like a seating area during the day rather than a bed and that it can be turned into a bed without too much trouble. The easiest way to do that is to buy specially designed daybed bedding, which comes with a cover for the daytime.
These specialist bedding ensembles are not found in every store however. If you want to shop locally you will probably have to visit quite a few places to find anything suitable, never mind a bedding set you love. If you bought your day bed in a local furniture store, try there first of all and see what they have to offer, as they may sell covers for the daybeds they stock. If not, try general bedding and linen stores and department stores with a bedding section.
If you have no luck, you will need to look online, where you will find a much better selection for whatever type of day bed you have and whatever your room color scheme. The main thing to check out, after making sure that the color is suitable for your room, are the measurements for the bedding, so that you know it will fit your furniture properly without any excess fabric, except where it is designed to be tucked out of sight. Don’t just go by the image on the web site. Although your daybed may look similar, the size or proportions may be very different and you don’t want to find this out after you have paid the shipping costs to get the bedding to your home, even if you can return it and get the cost of the product refunded. Also, be sure that you are happy with the fabric composition so that you know what you expect when you receive it.
