Day beds are sophisticated and practical - a great way to add class to a bedroom or living space. Our day beds combine functionality with style, creating a lounge-friendly sofa by day and a comfortable bed by night. For an extra sleeping space, explore our day beds with trundles. Simply slide the trundle bed out and you’ll have yourself a double day bed. To save space, try small and single day beds. These smaller options help maximise floor space, making them a great choice in smaller living rooms or guest bedrooms.

What is a day bed?
A day bed is a multifunctional bed used for lounging and sleeping. They’re a similar concept to sofa beds, however, they don’t require any assembly to switch from a sofa to a bed. Instead, they look like a sofa and have a backrest, but also have a mattress base, meaning they can easily be used for seating and sleeping.
So, if you have many guests or are simply looking for a second sleep spot for times when your partner is snoring too loud, day beds are perfect.

What size is a day bed?
Most day beds are standard single size, made to accommodate a standard single mattress. At Happy Beds, we offer day beds in a variety of sizes so you can choose one to suit your space. Small singles are ideal if you’re trying to save space, while small double day beds allow a little more room to stretch out and get comfortable.
For even more sleeping options, you can choose a day bed with a trundle, which expands to create a double sized sleeping area. Find out more about bed sizes in our handy bed size guide!
Can I get a day bed with storage?
Yes - at Happy Beds we offer day beds with storage drawers. These are perfect for smaller rooms with limited storage space, or just for keeping bedrooms neat and tidy.
Can adults use day beds?
Yes, adults can use day beds. While small single day beds are ideal for kids, larger options including small doubles and trundle day beds can all comfortably fit adult sleepers.
Are day beds suitable for everyday use?
As they come with a base that fits a mattress, day beds are similar to standard beds - the only difference is they have three sides, providing a backrest for sitting. As they use standard mattresses, day beds are as comfortable as regular beds and can be used every day. While they’re great for guests, day beds are also particularly useful in children’s or teenagers’ bedrooms.
Do day beds need mattresses?
Yes - your day bed base will need a mattress. All day beds use standard mattress sizes. This makes them more comfortable and bigger than a conventional sofa bed, so if you’re considering buying a day bed, shop our mattresses too.
