Can a Daybed Be Used as a Regular Bed?
A daybed can absolutely be used every day for nightly sleep. Just make sure to choose a design built for such a purpose. You'll want one that comes with a durable frame and quality mattress, rather than a 'sofa-like' one with seat cushions.

What Is the Purpose of a Daybed?
A living room daybed is an ideal solution when you're short on space and want a room to serve double-duty as both an office or den and a guest room. It provides a couch for sitting during the day and transforms easily into a bed at night.
A kid’s daybed is also a good choice for children's rooms and dorm rooms. It's a nice place to lounge with friends during the day, and at night, it's a comfortable bed to sleep in. If your child loves to host sleepovers, look for a daybed with a trundle — a low pull-out bed, usually on casters, that rolls under the daybed when not in use. If you don't need a trundle, consider a daybed with drawers underneath – for extra storage.
