The cost of single beds vary, but you can expect to pay from £225 to £1000, depending on the type of single bed frame and materials used. On the lower end of the scale you’ll find simple upholstered, metal or wooden single beds, and at the higher end, single bed frame and mattress sets, bunk beds (although technically these could count as two beds), high sleeper single beds, and single beds with storage, including single divan bed frames and single ottoman beds.
While standard single mattresses measure up at a precise 6 feet 3 inches (190cm) in length, and 3 feet (90cm) in width - single bed size can vary, depending on the materials used, type of single bed frame, and whether it has a headboard. When choosing your single bed, always check the specific single bed length and single bed width measurements displayed on the product page to ensure it will fit. You may also want to check the height measurement as well, to ensure your new single bed doesn’t interfere with any light switches, dado rails or windowsills. When checking single bed measurements against the space available in your bedroom, don’t forget to measure hallways and staircases too, to make sure your new single bed frame will make it safely to its new home.
There’s just as much choice when choosing a single bed frame as there is when selecting a small double, double, king size, or super king size beds. You can of course opt for a classic and simple upholstered, metal or wooden single bed, which are great affordable options. To make the most of your space, you could consider one of our single beds with storage - like a single divan bed frame with drawers, or a single ottoman bed, which lets you lift up the mattress for extra storage space. As for colours and styles there are plenty of options - from pristine white single beds, to contemporary grey single beds, and even velvet upholstered pastel pink, rich navy or dark green single beds.
While you’ll probably see them most often in kids rooms, single beds are absolutely suitable for adults as well, and are equally ideal for teenagers, adults, or simply an excellent way to turn a small or ‘box’ room into a guest room. Single beds with storage are particularly great for adults, offering additional storage while keeping the footprint small, whether that’s a single divan bed frame or single ottoman bed.
