Be very careful not to buy a bed with ends, and unfortunately most of the "day beds" have ends. Teenage boys suddenly grow a foot and can't fit in their beds because their feet touch the ends.

I had to swap dd's and ds2's beds for this reason. All of a sudden he was too long for a 6 foot bed shock.

I wouldn't worry so much about buying a new bed, I would invest in some really big cushions and a nice throw, and make it up as a sofa during the day. ds has two throws, one of which he rolls up to make a sort of sofa back.

Sorry, this may not be much help blush.

We have just bought this one from ikea Hemnes Daybed.

It is very comfy, has storage underneath and converts into a large double which is very handy for sleepovers....

Yes that's the one I was looking at when I was looking at daybeds. ds was 12 at the time, and fortunately I didn't as he has grown a foot since then (in less than two years) and would be hard-pushed to sleep on it now.

dd has her eye on it as well.

Blimey, how tall is he? The mattress is 2m long!

My 13 year old ds has the Hemnes day bed and loves it - v comfy.

I don't believe the mattress is 2 m long confused. I had him lie on it in the shop and I was convinced that the mattress was 6 foot.

I'd better go back and have another look hmm. It's a great bed - storage and a bed under the bed, perfect for a teenage room.

The details on the website for that bed say that the mattress is 2m long, the overall bed is 2.11m.

this is more of a sofa/futon than a day bed but might be worth a look.
