Outdoor Daybed Ideas

We all want that perfect backyard oasis where we can wind down from a day full of work, kids, and everything in between. One of the best ways to achieve this is by upgrading your patio with an outdoor daybed.

The following outdoor daybed ideas can help you make the right choice in adding an important piece to your outdoor living space. Choosing one can be a difficult task, especially if you want a daybed that is comfortable, sturdy, and long-lasting. Let’s take a look at a few of the most important things to look for that are popular with the current outdoor furniture trends.

One of the most important factors to consider when choosing an outdoor daybed is the seating capacity. Will this be the only seating available on your deck or patio? If so, you may want to opt for an outdoor sectional daybed and/or a round outdoor daybed that provides seating for up to eight people. On the other hand, if the daybed will only be used by you and your spouse, a more intimate option may be more ideal.


When choosing an outdoor daybed, the frame and outer materials are two of the most important things to consider. As with any outdoor patio furniture, you want to choose a material that is high-quality, durable, and weather resistant. Several popular options include wicker patio furniture, teak outdoor furniture, teak and rope outdoor furniture and aluminum. For the best balance of durability, comfort, and style, we always recommend powder coated aluminum or solid teak wood frames, and all-weather wicker or solid teak wood outer materials.

Before settling on a frame and outer material, your outdoor daybed ideas should also include the current aesthetic of your patio or deck, and make sure that the two styles will complement each other.
At Madbury Road, we offer both all weather wicker and teak wood daybeds. Our all weather wicker daybeds are built around a welded powder coated aluminum frame that is lightweight, rust-proof, and durable. Our wood models use the most durable, high-strength teak wood possible.

The amount of room required for an outdoor daybed is an important factor to consider. Whether you are planning to set up a daybed on your patio or deck, or even in your yard, it is very important to measure the area and check the dimensions of the daybed. Be sure to leave excess room around your patio furniture so you are able to easily walk around the area.

Weather Resistance

When choosing any piece of outdoor furniture, one of the most important factors to consider is weather-resistance. Outdoor furniture has to be able to survive and withstand moderately harsh weather and elements. To ensure that your outdoor daybed lasts, it should be:

  • Resistant to mildew.
  • Resistant to color-fading.
  • Able to drain water.
  • Able to dry quickly.

At Madbury Road, all of our modular outdoor furniture is built to be durable and withstand all weather conditions.

Matching Extension Pieces

Do you plan to expand your set of patio furniture later on? You may want to consider choosing a daybed that is part of a larger collection, so you can always get more furniture pieces that perfectly match the same style.

Our outdoor daybeds are a part of larger collections, so you can easily add matching outdoor sectional furniture, an outdoor club chair, coffee table, or outdoor dining set to your patio furniture — now or later!
