The Type of Daybed You Have

As you may already know, there exist indoor and outdoor daybeds, both of which certainly have different frame types. Indoor daybed frames have a more diverse set of material than outdoor ones, such as rubber-wood, metal, synthetic rattan, teak, and solid wood. Synthetic materials are much more suitable for outdoor daybed frames because they’re more resistant to sunlight exposure, not affected by strong humidity changes, and are also waterproof.
