Turn a tiny daybed into a roomier, more comfortable sleeping spot. Connecting the pop-up trundle under the daybed with the top of the bed requires a foam piece to cover the gap. A single king-sized sheet helps to tie the two twin-sized mattresses together. This works because the length of the king-sized mattress is equal to double the width of the daybed mattresses, and the width of the king-sized mattress equals the length of the daybed mattresses.
Things You'll Need
- 75-inch-long, T-shaped foam piece
- Fitted king-sized sheet
- Zip ties or rope
Pull up the pop-up trundle from under the daybed. Remove any bedding from both beds.
Place the T-shaped foam piece along the gap between the mattresses with the cross bar of the T-shape on top of the two mattresses and the bottom of the shape inside the gap.
Cover the two mattresses with a fitted king-sized sheet.
Tie a rope or a zip tie around the legs of the two beds where they meet to hold the beds together.
Tips & Warnings
- Look for T-shaped foam pieces designed to bridge the gap between mattresses at bedding or furniture stores.
