Are you in the market for a new bed but a double bed is that bit too big for your bedroom? Then don’t sweat because we’ve got a fabulous range of 4ft beds that could be just the ticket. Indeed, 4ft beds are lesser known than other sizes. However, these nifty beds are a great solution for those who still want a bed that sleeps two people but need to free up as much floor space as possible. Can’t wait to find your shiny new 4ft bed? Then just click here. Want to know more? Then read on to discover what the advantages of 4ft beds are.
As we’ve already discussed and the number one reason why people invest in a 4ft bed is the fact that they save valuable floor space. Whilst these beds only measure 6 inches less in width than a standard double bed, you’d be surprised at the difference that can make. If you are particularly short on space, then we recommend choosing a divan style bed as they take up the least amount of space possible. This is because the mattress sits directly on top of the base. This is in contrast to a framed bed where the mattress sits inside the frame. Whilst all 4ft beds take a mattress that measures 120 cm x 190 cm, the external measurements can differ quite widely. All measurements are on our website so make sure you check these out before you make a purchase.
Quite often, the bedroom that becomes designated as the guest bedroom is the smallest of all the bedrooms in the house. It’s possible that you thought a single bed is the only the option. However, quite often a 4ft bed is just the perfect size for such rooms. Indeed, a small double bed can still comfortably sleep 2 people which is more accommodating for visiting couples.
Lots of children as they get older are desperate for an ‘adult’ bed. However, it’s probable that your child’s bedroom needs to be multi-functional and every square inch of space needs to be utilised carefully. Indeed, a double bed can often take up too much space and most children sleep solo, so a bed this size isn’t necessary. Without a doubt, a 4ft bed is the perfect compromise and is often perfect for your growing children.
Not only do our small double beds provide a comfy sleeping space but many of our models are available with storage too. Indeed, the space beneath the bed is often overlooked and becomes redundant. However, our storage beds make use of this space and can often provide a valuable space for storing possessions. Our storage beds are available with either drawers or ottoman storage. Drawers are perfect if you just need a little extra wiggle room. However, ottoman beds provide up to four times the amount of storage as a four-drawer divan. Indeed, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how much an ottoman bed will hold.
Whilst the main purpose of a bed is to get a good night’s kip most of us want a bed that is aesthetically pleasing too. In the past, 4ft options were limited to just a couple of models. However, in the last few years the choice has expanded somewhat and there are multiple styles of small double beds available. From wooden to fabric beds and everything in between we’re confident that we’ve got just the bed you’ve been looking for.
