They appear at first as a sofa but the incorporated head and foot ends to create a hybrid structure between a sofa and a standard bed. If you’re looking for multifunctional furniture for your home then look no further!
Ideal for guests
You’ll find day beds to be the ultimate in-home office or spare bedroom beds. They often take up a lot less space than a traditional sofa bed and look a lot sleeker than a chunky sofa.

We’re all in this together. Nobody could have imagined the day when we wouldn’t be able to leave our homes, visit family and friends or even take the kids to the local play area. As much as we might all have great ideas for juggling homeschooling and working from home, here are the 5 things we’ve learnt from all of this.
Plan each day - yeah right
People say take 10 minutes to plan the next day and for a successful day. However, those people with genius ideas obviously don’t know your kids. Some days they wake up ready and raring to give everything a go and other days not so excited.
