The outdoor day bed is nothing new in garden design. It is traditionally viewed as a luxury item rather than something common. So it is assumed that not everyone can afford a daybed for the garden. The latest trends break exactly this prejudice. Even the smallest patio or humblest outdoor area would look totally up-to-date with such a piece of furniture. The reasons for this are diverse. On the one hand, very eye-catching and luxury furniture are now often used as accents in garden furnishings. Furthermore, cosiness and comfort are becoming more and more important with outdoor daybeds.
A day bed in the garden is no longer an exclusive luxury!
Practical and stylistic questions when choosing an outdoor day bed
It’s quite difficult for us to decide whether to start with the practical or the aesthetic considerations when choosing the ideal outdoor daybed.
Because the level of comfort that you probably actually strive for is influenced by both aspects. The investment in such a piece of furniture is clearly large and it also takes up a lot of space. If you look for this piece of furniture in any way impractical, it will bring more problems than benefits for your garden design in the long run.
The day bed should blend in with the background or stand out as an accent
Sit and lie comfortably!
An outdoor day bed is usually for people who plan to spend a long time there. Surely you want to relax there. You clearly won’t succeed if you choose impractical, uncomfortable frames and mattresses. Therefore, try out different models until you are guaranteed to have chosen the most comfortable one.
The right size
The right size of day bed is the one that will bring you the most comfort. There are many people who relax well on larger lying areas. If that’s the case for you, then you should treat yourself to the highest possible quality. With a bit of creativity, you’re sure to find a type of positioning that leaves enough tread. In addition, you can make a day bed functional so that you can not only lie comfortably there, but also sit on it. With matching bedspreads and serving tables, you can enjoy coffee, cake and even delicious dinner with friends and family there. Maybe you even treat yourself to a romantic or adventurous breakfast?

Would you rather stand your day bed up or hang it up?
Above all, we are talking about a very practical decision! Different people have different merits in this regard as well. A day bed installed on the floor is much more stable. But in some other cases you can hang it on the ceiling just as well. This saves on running space and the bed can also be used as a swing. A lot of people would relax a lot better that way. Relaxation is the main reason why you choose such a piece of furniture.
In reality, a daybed is only worthwhile if it is quite comfortable

Backless beds may seem seamlessly minimalist and modern, but they’re not always the most practical solution. If you would also like to read, study or work there, then you definitely need a comfortable place to lean on. In addition, this allows you to integrate many more seats into the day bed. This is definitely also important if you want to do some of your work there.
Consider the most innovative water and weather resistant materials for the daybed. Aluminum and wicker are the most popular at the moment due to the trendy aesthetic effect. Make sure to continue investing in waterproof pillows and mattresses. A beautiful day bed is only worthwhile on the terrace if it looks good over the long term and is enriched by a table.
What do you need to consider from an aesthetic and design point of view?
Now we come to the aesthetic aspect of choosing an outdoor daybed. If you have chosen the day bed practically, you will definitely contribute greatly to the comfort and relaxation in the garden. In addition, you should of course do everything possible to ensure that the daybed fits well with your chosen design concept. Most often, the accent falls on this piece of furniture. It plays a crucial role in the design of your garden, terrace or outdoor space in general. If the outdoor daybed is somewhere close to the interior, it should also correspond with the look and style of it.
Beds with backrests enable multi-purpose use
Accent or Complement?
The first decision you should make from an aesthetic point of view would be whether the day bed should serve more as an addition or as an accent in your garden. This also mostly depends on how you integrate the day bed aesthetic point of view outside.
The outdoor day bed to complement your seating
Day beds that complement your outdoor seating should be subordinate to the style of them. Either they should ideally harmonize with the rest of the furniture in terms of material and color or they should be as neutral and unobtrusive as possible. So in the first case they come into their own. If you choose the second approach, you have a lot of leeway for conversions. If you suddenly want to make the outdoor daybed a little more eye-catching, you can achieve this with interesting decorative cushions and textiles for the bedspread.

Do you like to make an accent out of your day bed?
A luxury or designer piece would be the best opportunity if you can make an accent of your outdoor bed. That doesn’t mean that the rest of your garden furniture has to be classy and expensive. For a number of years, we’ve seen the trend of combining mid-range furniture with one or two more expensive accents. Experiment with this original and homely concept in your outdoor area.
