Who didn’t fall in love young Harry Potter sitting in his little day bed under the stairs? Cute cubby spaces are not just for characters in books and movies!
Creating a custom made day bed is one of the creative and economical of ways to add instant character to boring, boxy rooms. It’s a terrific way to use other wise wasted space. It’s a simple, but very effective, focal point to spring board your imagination into action.
Having a structure that really serves you, as well as looking great, is the charm of great design.
Day Beds can be created to be flush with or just below a window with cleverly flanked shelves. A great parent spot to watch the kids outside while taking a coffee break; two friends can share a private visit; an industrious teenager, will find a handy space to hunker into to study, read, or use cyber ‘toys.’ When your sister comes to spend the night, a perfect place to sleep.
Built in day beds can be constructed low with drawers for storage. Perfect for blankets, toys, rain/winter wear, sports gear, or holiday trimmings.
It can easily house yet another bed, to be trundled out for a sleep over or even a cozy place for loved pets to share nap time.
For ingenuous style, a pentagon, hexagon or octagon shape could be cut into a wall to surround and contain the bed.
Stylized doors can be created to close off and cleverly conceal the bed. Day beds can easily be constructed to wrap around a corner…two snoozing spots in the sunshine.
Outdoors, they can suspend from a porch ceiling or for more joy, built into a deck area and be furbished with wood or fabric over hangs to create a perfect cabana!
