Which Bed Size Is Best For Your Apartment?

Posted by Luxo Living on 17/12/2022

As you start shopping for furniture for your new apartment, one of the first pieces you'll need to select is a bed. But with so many different sizes and types available, how do you know which one is right for your space? Here are a few things to keep in mind as you shop for the perfect bed for your apartment.

Which bed size is best for your apartment?


A single bed like this single house bed for kids is a type of bed that is designed for one person. This can be useful for a number of reasons.

First, single beds tend to be smaller than other types of beds, making them more suited for smaller apartments, bedrooms, or guest rooms.Moreover, single beds can be more economical than larger beds, since they require less material to construct. Also, single beds are often easier to move and transport than larger beds, making them a good option for people who frequently travel or move homes.

Whether you're looking to save space, money, or time, a single bed may be the perfect solution for you.


A double bed like this designer industrial platform bed is a vital piece of furniture for any household. Not only does it provide a comfortable place to sleep, but it also offers a number of other benefits.

For example, a double bed can be used as a guest bed, giving visitors a place to stay without taking up too much space. This is especially useful if your apartment is on the smaller side. Additionally, a double bed can act as a sofa during the day, providing a cosy spot to watch TV or read a book. When space is at a premium, furniture that can be used for more than one purpose is a great benefit. And for those who enjoy entertaining, a double bed can be the perfect place to host an impromptu sleepover party. In short, there are many reasons why you would need a double bed in your apartment.


If you're looking for a bed that will provide a comfortable night's sleep for two people, a queen bed is an excellent choice. At 153cm by 203cm, queen beds are larger than double beds but not as bulky as king-size beds, making them a good option for smaller bedrooms in apartments.

Queen beds also offer more than enough space for two people to sleep comfortably without feeling cramped.In addition, queen beds can be easily moved from one room to another, making them a versatile option for those who frequently change up their bedroom furniture.

If you're looking for a queen bed like our Cammie boucle bed frame that will provide plenty of space for two people to sleep comfortably, a queen bed is a great option.


If space in your apartment isn't a concern, a king bed like this Homer upholstered bed frame may be perfect for you. A king bed is the largest size bed available, measuring 183cm by 203cm. This makes it perfect for couples who want plenty of room to sprawl out or for anyone who simply wants more space to themselves.

In addition, king beds are a great option for people who are taller than average, as they provide plenty of extra length. Even if your apartment is small, if you're tall and your space can accommodate a king bed, this may be the most comfortable option for you to get a good night's rest.

If you frequently have guests stay overnight, a king bed is also a good choice, as it can comfortably accommodate two people. Whatever your reasons for needing a king bed, there's no doubt that this spacious option provides ample benefits.

3 ways to create a bedroom space in a small or studio apartment

Save space with a Murphy bed

A Murphy bed, also known as a wall bed or a fold-down bed, is a type of bed that can be stored vertically against a wall or inside a closet when not in use. This makes them an ideal choice for small homes or apartments where space is in short supply and where every square inch counts. If your apartment is a studio or even a small one-bedroom, freeing up valuable floor space is invaluable.

Murphy beds are also great for hosting guests. If you don't have a dedicated guest room in your apartment, simply set up the bed in your living room or office when you need it. Then, tuck it away again when your guests have gone home.

Use a platform bed to make room for storage

Platform beds are beds that are low to the floor and don't require a box spring, making them a great option for people who move frequently. Many platform beds come with storage drawers so you can save as much space as possible.

Get a built-in trundle bed or bunk beds

Bunk beds are great space-savers, as are trundle beds. A trundle bed is a great addition to any home or apartment, especially if you have limited space.

Trundle beds are designed to be stored under a regular bed, and they can be pulled out when needed. This makes them ideal for guests since you can simply pull out the trundle bed when someone comes to stay.

Trundle beds are also great for kids since they can be used as both a bed and a play area. And if you have a small apartment, a trundle bed can help you maximise your space. So if you're looking for a versatile piece of furniture, a trundle bed is a great option.
