Contrary to what you might think, daybeds aren't just a staple for the poolside or the backyard. If you dig deeper, you'll realize that it's really a smart solution to small space living—after all, it's a sofa and a bed in one. To learn how to maximize this humble piece of furniture in other areas like the bedroom or your living area, check out these ideas: 

Instead of using separate chairs that take up a lot of space, you can have daybeds in your sitting area. If you have an extra room, you can set up a small center table where you can leave magazines and refreshments for guests. 

Daybeds can be placed in dens, too. Since it's a spot for recreational activities like reading and watching movies, you can add extra pillows to make it extra comfy. They can also be very useful in case you want to take a quick nap. 

For compact condo units and smaller apartments, a daybed can replace a couch entirely. If you want to make it look more like a sofa, use large, uniform pillows to create a makeshift backrest and stick to neutrals to maintain a high-end vibe. 

If you need seating in your home library that is a little more functional than an ordinary chair, go for a daybed. You can use the space underneath to customize cubbyholes or drawers for extra storage. 

They work well as an alternative to traditional beds, too. Having a smaller sleeping space opens up your room to other possiblities—you can add a small work desk, a shelf for your favorite reads, or even a vanity.
