Goodbye cruel world… I’m off to paradise!

A little bit of luxury and tranquillity can be created in any nook with the addition of day beds.

Day beds are a great place to curl up with a book, sit and enjoy a coffee or catch up with your best friend on the phone. They can be used indoors for taking a quick nap in the afternoon, or outdoors to enjoy the serenity of nature.

These beds were traditionally used as a place to rest and relax during the day and were often used as a sofa or couch as well.

Repurposed Old Boats

If you have an old boat that you don’t use anymore, you can give it a new life by transforming it into an outdoor day bed. This is a great way to upcycle an old boat and create a unique piece of furniture for your garden or patio.

To transform your old boat into a day bed, you will need to remove any old seat cushions and any other materials that are not suitable for outdoor use. You may also need to sand down the boat and repaint it to protect it from the elements.

Once you have prepared the boat, you can add some outdoor furniture cushions and pillows to create a comfortable seating area.

Rattan Day Beds

Rattan day beds are made from a natural material, so they are environmentally friendly. They are also very strong and durable, so you can be sure that your bed will last for many years.

Window Bench

If you’re stuck on whether to choose a bed or a bench for your home, then consider opting for a window bench. A window bench can serve as both a comfortable place to sit and a cozy spot to take a nap.

Plus, it can add a stylish touch to any room. The natural lighting will give a warm and inviting feeling, and the bench can be used as extra seating when entertaining guests.

Boho Bunk Bed

A Boho bunk bed can easily be converted into a day bed. Simply remove the bottom bunk and convert it into a sofa. A few steps and you have a comfortable day bed.

This is a great way to save space in a small room or to have a multi-purpose furniture piece that can be used for both sleeping and lounging.
