First order of business: replace the old full-size bed with a clean-lined daybed, sofabed, or perhaps even a futon. In the future, we do want to be able to offer guests a full-size bed to sleep on, but we don't want to have such a big bed taking up all the space in our son's rather small room. Any good suggestions under $800?
We like the Lubi daybed from CB2 and it's in our price-range; trouble is, for the bed to accomdate two sleepers, you've got to unfold the mattress onto the floor, which isn't very grandparent friendly."
Daybeds- always a popular topic. A few of our picks:
• They're having a sale on this Futon Lounger over at West Elm. Not sure if it's what you're looking for, but at least it appears comfortable.
• It's in a lower price range, but you may also want to consider the Lillberg over at Ikea.
• Room and Board also has a few good options- one of the simpler ones: The Parsons Twin Daybed .
