Over the years I’ve spoken with a number of people about the need for a smaller than twin size bed. Often these individuals are trying to find something that can work for a cabin, for a small room or a tight space where typical beds just don’t seem to fit. Another need I’ve heard is to try and maximize the number of beds that can be placed into one room. The solution would be a bed size less wide than a standard twin but would have the same length and we refer to this in the industry as a cot size.
For most people, the hardest part about redesigning a room of any sort, but particularly a bedroom is figuring out the best way to maximize your space while still giving the room a special feel. This is especially true for the bedroom because it is the most important room in the home. So the question becomes how do to make the most of your living space. Well, you have to start with the bed which is the most important feature in the bedroom. And if you’re looking for the perfect piece to create your bedroom around, you needn’t look any further than a divan bed. Originally considered futons or day beds, divan beds offer the best solution for any bedroom because of their combination of comfort and practicality.
