Last year was very busy at Time4Sleep due to our move to bigger and larger premises to cater for our ever-expanding business. One massive area we did well with was the guest and day bed markets and this was because of excellent ranges and a wide choice from suppliers such as Serene Furnishings. Day beds are increasingly being considered by consumers looking for an alternative sleep and design solution. After all, they can inject a sense of style whilst also being very versatile in the limited space that a modern home can often be restricted to. Day beds can also be used as additional seating as well as bed frames. They can be made out of wood, metal or a combination of the two. Many of today's day beds have fully-sprung slatted bases for additional comfort and support. This may also enable you to add an optional under-bed storage box if required, which is another great feature when space is at a premium! The expansion of this market this year has also seen Serene Furnishings expand their range with the Serene Florence metal day bed, which is available in both ivory or brass finishes.
