Buying Guide

There are a couple of things to keep in mind when buying daybed bedding…

Pay a Little More for Quality and Firmness

You can find several twin sets for under $50. Unfortunately, this is also the range where you’ll find thinner batting inside the quilt lining and the hems will be weak and shift around easily.

What you’re really looking for is a thick, high quality fabric with a fair amount of batting to keep the shape of the cover when you sit on it. It is a daybed after all. The hems will also need to be stiffer and thicker to help keep the shape firm. If you pick a cheaper, low-quality cover, you will find yourself constantly readjusting the cover the make it look neat. In this case you may as well have bought a regular twin bedding set instead.

Make Sure it Fits

Although most daybed bedding sets are measured just larger than a twin mattress, you’ll need to be sure. A twin mattress is usually 38 by 74 inches and the bedding will be 1 inch larger, to fit snuggly over the mattress. Even though the corners of a daybed cover are sewn together to keep it from sliding around, you still need enough of a split in the corner to allow the daybed frame to fit. Otherwise you’ll end up having bunching around the corners and the back. The covers on this list have the perfect measurements for most standard daybeds.

Is It Machine Washable?

Again, a matter of quality. You want something a little tougher, to handle the amount of sitting on top as well as being able to machine wash it whenever needed. Dirty little feet and the occasional spill will almost certainly occur. That’s what makes daybed so great… they’re meant to be lived on.

Is It Double Sided?

A cool feature of the more high-end daybed sets is that they can be flipped around and you end up with an entirely new design. This is a great way to get two for the price of one and keep the look of your room updated and fresh.
