This size of bed doesn’t have to be minimal in design or comfort. One of the manufacturers we work with Nomad Furniture has developed a series of beds with headboards as well as a cot size daybed series. These beds incorporate a slat support system and are also available with customizable options that can increase the height of the headboard or designed for more space beneath the bed. Optional bed drawers on castors can be ordered which are independent of the bed system and simply roll beneath the beds. Our local mattress manufacturer has also designed a comfortable daily use 8 in. high density foam mattress for these beds so that individuals don’t have to sacrifice comfort by having a premium mattress option.
Why the wrap around headboard is good for a room with little space, such as a dorm or child’s room, is because its effect does not enlarge the space the bed already occupies. The room does not appear to be crowded or stifling. The fun colors available for fabric headboards - orange, lime green, sunshine yellow, and purple just to name a few - definitely give the room a personalized and fun look. If you are seeking a more conservative, reserved look for your room; you may want to consider using a "straight headboard flush" fabric headboard. If you would like to add a bit of flair to your headboard, look into button and pleating options.
