Best Beds for Small Spaces and Apartments

Best Beds for Small Spaces and Apartments

If you live in a small space or small apartment, finding the right bed can be a challenge. You want something that's comfortable and will help you get a good night's sleep, but you also need something that won't take up too much space in your small living area.


One option to consider is a platform bed. These beds have a simple, minimalist design that makes them perfect for small spaces.


Our solid wood platform beds are made with a solid pine wood frame and strong plywood slats with a metal support bar, which provides support for your mattress without the need for a box spring or Bunkie board.

Another option is a space-saving bunk bed. Our solid wood bunk beds stack two sleeping surfaces, which frees up valuable floor space in your small room.


They're also a great option for use in your guest room or vacation rental, such as an Airbnb, when you need to maximize sleeping space for guests. Choose a bunk bed with storage drawers for extra storage space or a bunk bed with trundle to add additional sleeping space without taking up more floor space.

If you're looking for something that maximizes workspace, a loft bed might be the right choice for you. Our solid wood loft beds for adults are perfect for creating additional space underneath the bed for a study or lounge area.


And with a full-size high loft bed, you can have more sleeping space while still maximizing the floor space in your bedroom.

No matter what type of bed you choose, be sure to measure your space carefully before making a purchase. You want to make sure that your bed will fit comfortably in your small space and leave enough room for other furniture and belongings.


When shopping for a bed for a small apartment or small room, it's also important to consider the type of mattress you'll be using. A memory foam mattress is a good choice because it's designed to contour to your body, providing support and comfort while also taking up less space than a traditional innerspring mattress.


Our Comfort Memory Foam Mattresses and Cooling Memory Foam Mattresses are perfect for pairing with your Plank+Beam solid wood platform bed, bunk bed, or loft bed.

Ultimately, the best bed for small spaces will depend on your individual needs and preferences. Whether you choose a platform bed, bunk bed, loft bed, or something else, the most important thing is that you find something that's comfortable and fits well in your space.
