Flexible Bedroom Staple: Daybeds

Oh, to have a guest room! Instead, many of us have an office, a studio, a nursery or another dedicated space in our homes (if we're lucky enough to have the extra square footage, that is). Unless you're blessed with huge rooms, chances are a full-size bed or even a standard sleeper sofa wouldn't fit in an already defined space like an office. That's where the daybed comes in!Compact, easy to make up as a bed, and doing double duty as a sofa/ snooze zone, a daybed could be the perfect solution for creating an instant bedroom. True, daybeds are usually reserved for one person (but checkout CB2's fold out version below!), which may not make them ideal if you do a lot of couples hosting. But if you really don't have the space for a guest room and just need a place for a friend (our your snoring husband) to crash, a daybed is a great option. Here are five daybeds worth a second look:

1. West Elm's Window Daybed, $381

2. Pottery Barn's Savannah Daybed, $599-$699

3. Design Within Reach's Case Study Daybed, $1,443.30-$1,524.05

4. Jonathan Adler's Lampert Lounger, starting at $2,400

5. CB2's Lubi Daybed, $799

Do you own a daybed? If not, would you consider it or are you more apt to go with a sleeper sofa?
