There is something about the hot dry weather that is completely and utterly exhausting. It zaps all of your energy and leaves you uncomfortably warm, sleepy and cranky and at about mid day when the temperatures have maxed out seems to be the best time to lay down and take a nap.
If you are anything like me there is no way you will want to climb into your hot and overly layered bed just for an afternoon slumber. That is when simplistic and minimalistic day beds come in handy. They are covered in cushions and pillows but don't typically have blankets which makes them ideal for hot afternoons. Daybeds are also great for guests as they can be transformed into an additional bed.
Dual Purpose Daybed
A family room daybed is loaded up with pillows so that it can be used as a sofa during the day and then be easily switched into a bed for quick power naps when ever the mood strikes.
This daybed is so fancy that you would probably prefer to use it as your normal bed each and every night. Perfect for a guest suite as it can be used as a sofa during the day and effortlessly switched into a bed with the addition of a blanket.
It would also work well in traditional or slightly contemporary spaces with pretty much any colour scheme.
A basic single bed frame is converted into a daybed by pushing it up against a wall and aligning pillows along the back. Since it has no sides or back you are unrestricted with where you place it.
Lounge Inspired Daybed
A built in head rest makes this daybed perfect for napping or just relaxing after a long hard day. No worries about trying to find a pillow since its already there.
There is nothing quite as satisfying as napping outside on a beautiful day under a shady tree or umbrella. The soft and cooling breeze combined with the wonderful smell of fresh air is all you really need for a great nap.
