Here is a guide to daybed bedding to help you make a choice:

A daybed is nothing more than a really functional couch. You can use it as an extra bed or as a living room accent piece. Some daybeds even pull out to turn into a larger bed. If space is limited in your home a daybed can help make a room more functional; a daybed turns a living room into a bedroom!

There are a lot of options for the actual bedding part of the daybed. One is to use decorative throw pillows as a backrest. Of course there are daybeds that have a built in padded back piece too. Even a back piece is optional.

There are  daybeds  that  have a small arm chair sort of back rest, othere have a full blown couch look, and there are even ones that look just  like a swanky psychologist’s couch with a gentle S curve.

For functional daybeds you can use a twin mattress and then cover it with a tight fitted sheet to match any décor.
