About Small Double Bed with Storage
Many people think beds are only available in 3 sizes ? single, double and king size. They are actually available in six sizes ? small single, single, small double, double, king and super king.
A standard double bed is typically 75 inches by 54 inches. However a small double bed is around 75 inches by 48 inches. This makes it 6 inches narrower than a standard double bed.
This is perfect if you have a small bedroom and you are short on space, perhaps for a guest room or transforming a box room in to a usable double room.
For these small rooms clever storage is an absolute necessity. Many small double beds come with integrated storage. That may be in the form of a lift up frame with storage underneath, or storage drawers that are cleverly incorporated in to the base of the bed. Lift up frames typically use gas lift mechanisms to easily lift the bed frame up and dependent on the option you choose they can be lift the frame from the side, or the bottom of the bed.
These small double beds with storage space can then be used to store items such as bed linen, towels or even clothes. And accessories. This takes away the need for a chest of drawers and gives you more space in your small room.
If you are buying a small double bed with storage, without a mattress, be careful when choosing your mattress that it is the correct size for the bed frame. You would be disappointed if you bought a small double bed frame and a standard double mattress!
