Single beds are perfect for grown-up kids, guest rooms and, of course, anyone who doesn’t need to waste all that space on a double. With a width of just over a metre (about 3 foot 6 inches), there are few rooms around the home that can’t fit one in.
If space is your main consideration but you need to sleep two, don’t forget about bunk beds, which are about as efficient a use of the available footprint that you can imagine. With a sturdy ladder and a safety rail along the top bunk, you won’t lose any sleep if you’ve got kids snoozing in them, but adults can use bunks too – it’s great if you regularly have friends staying over.
Our single beds come in a number of construction materials and finishes, so whatever the decor of your room, you’re bound to find the one that fits yours perfectly. The most common are simple wooden framed beds, solid dependable frames that will last you decades, and somehow manage to look better and better with each passing year. Another favourite frame type is metal. These classic bedsteads are every bit as strong and durable, but because of the metal build, they can be made with a much lighter look, with intricate patterns designed in, to match the style.
We also have children’s single beds, perfect for when they’ve grown out of their cot or small bed, but with design features just for kids, like the single bed frame, which has a roofed construction, perfect for throwing a sheet over and becoming a den, a house or a palace when it’s time for play.
If space-saving is top of your list, it’s really worth having a look at our divan beds too. Most of them feature drawers in the construction that allow you to stow things that you use infrequently, such as clothes and bedding that’s out of season. Other types lift up and allow access to the storage chamber below – ideal for keeping larger things in.
Finally, there are the occasional beds, fold-up and day beds that might be used infrequently for sleeping on, but are great go-to beds for when someone pops over for the night.
Don’t forget, we also stock a superb range of bedding, pillows and mattresses so you can make your single bed your own. When you’re looking for a single bed, you only need to visit a single shop when it’s Dunelm.
