How To Make A Bed Look Like A Couch. Making a daybed into a couch can offer numerous benefits including being easier to move from one location to another, particularly somewhere where space is limited or where a child or guest is sleeping.

It may also be easier for guests because the change-over from daybed to couch doesn’t require any preconditions such as having people there to help them.

If you decide to convert your daybeds into couches, remember that they could last you and your family longer than other kinds of furniture options available in the market today.

Create a makeshift sofa back by arranging large pillows on your bed. Lean them slightly against the wall to hold them in place. Use coordinating pillowcases, or cover plain pillows with an additional cover.

In this article, we discuss how to turn a bed into a couch.

Removing Headboard Or Footboard

When you add a headboard or footboard to your twin trundle bed frame, if it is the same style as your current bed frame, then you can leave them attached to the bed frame after your couch has been transformed.

If they are not compatible, then remove the headboard or footboard. Use a screwdriver to disassemble all components that were previously attached.

This can provide an open and modern appearance to your trundle bed sofas when you have multiple modular sofas of different styles, with some having leg room underneath the sofa while others do not.

If your bed is too high and your sofa is too low, you could raise your bed by taking out the box springs that support it. The average seat height of a sofa is around 19 or 20 inches.

Moving the mattress to a platform frame without the box spring will make it possible for you to sit both comfortably and safely on your sofa without any kind of trouble.

Platform frames come in assorted woods and decorative metals which are aesthetically appealing as well as sturdy enough to handle your bed’s weight.

Set Bed Position

Ensure that your bed is as close to a solid wall as possible, with the lengthier side butted up against the wall.

If you use two twin beds, situate them in an “L” shape when placed in a corner of the room.

Placing Comforter Or Pattern

Make sure you place a comforter in a solid color or pattern on top of the mattress and tuck the corners and sides beneath the mattress.

Avoid frilly comforters that look like they belong in a bedroom. Select color and pattern that enhances your existing furnishings.

Adding Large Pillowsadding large pillows

Instead of putting your bed up on the wall, put in some large pillows and lean them against the wall. These can function like sofas for you to sit upon.

Large body pillows covered with coordinating pillowcases or floor pillows create ideal sofa backs.

Add coordinating toss pillows in a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures. If you want arms for your sofa, place two large bolster pillows on each end.
