We have 17 Daybed Plans listed. Daybeds are quite useful space savers. You can use them for seating throughout the day, with a backboard and the look of a sofa as well as for sleeping during the night. Some Daybed Plans on this page also have storage underneath. These plans have a wide range of designs including modern, traditional, hanging and outdoor daybeds.

There is also a cut list, materials, tools and lumber lists. She estimates that the lumber and materials will cost between $25 - $50, obviously not including the mattress.
