    I like the daybed but how does it turn into a queen size? Though just put or build in the couch bed with storage or hot tub of your choice. They fit nicely under a bed for those who like to soak in hot water.
    Or as I do in cold water in the summer to cool off.
    The dinette seating should be at the counter and the dinette spaced used for a real chair , desk/storage, etc.
    Make full length 2’wide storage lofts down each long length.
    Make a closet by compacting the bath, using 1/3 for a closet.
    These would increase storage 500% and make it far more livable.

      I would assume it pulls out kind of like a futon

        So would I except there is no cushion back to make the queen size bed from as still just is a small twin unless they are hiding the cushions somewhere else. And it has a lack of space for that.
        But easily solved problems.
        I’d change the oven for storage, a convection/light, microwave countertop oven combo or 2 units at much lower cost.

          I believe the bed is an IKEA model. I may be mistaken but the draws would pull out and the seat on the daybed in photo is actually 2 mattresses or 1 mattress folded that would then go over the pulled out drawers. I have a similar model, however when it is pulled out makes a king size bed.

          It’s an Ikea guest day bed, the second mattress is under the first… You pull out the front, which extends the slats and then you grab the upper mattress and put it next to the other to give you the queen size… Drawers contain the pillows and bedding…
