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.
There are chances; you might have come across a type of bed that is called sleigh beds at a time when you were literally scouting to find newer means to find a perfect solution for your sleeping needs. The reason why it is called as such lies in the fact that these beds resemble ancient horse sleighs. It is viewed as a classic and stylish bed, which sets it apart from other varieties.
