In this post we have listed our favorite daybeds that come standard with a queen size sleeping surface to fit a queen size mattress. Some of the options also have a trundle bed that pulls out from underneath to accommodate additional sleepers. A queen size daybed can be a great versatile furniture piece that can be used as a lounge chair for reading/watching tv or to sleep adults or couples. 

What is considered a "queen size daybed"?

A queen size daybed is a daybed that fits a queen size mattress on top. While most daybeds are built with twin or full mattresses a queen size daybed is slightly larger to fit a 60″x80″ standard queen size mattress. 

Which mattress is best for a queen daybed?

A daybed mattress should be firm enough to support you while sitting up and lounging and comfortable enough to sleep on. We recommend a medium firm mattress. A daybed mattress should also be thinner so that it does not sit you too high above the border and allows you to still have a backrest for sitting. Check out our post on our favorite daybed mattresses.

Do I need a box spring with my queen daybed

No. The majority of daybeds have a built in bed slat system that supports the mattress without the need for a box spring. By not using a box spring this allows the mattress to sit lower to the ground and makes the daybed provide a more functional and minimal appearance. A platform or slat style frame is just as supportive and sturdy as a box spring. 

Benefits of a queen size daybed

A queen size daybed is great for a variety of reasons. The main one being the obvious fact that a queen size mattress has more space to fit adult sleepers as well as couples. A queen size bed has an extra 5″ in length over that of a full or twin size bed. While that may not seem like a lot, it makes a huge difference in allowing legroom for adults and taller individuals. A queen daybed can act as a lounge space but also takes the place of a guest room bed or main bed that can sleep any sleepers that a standard bed would.
