The 4ft bed is the lesser known of all the bed sizes but once discovered it will never be forgotten. If you've ever wrestled with a tape measure, trying to get a double bed into a tight spot, then you'll be forever grateful to the 4ft bed. Just when you thought you we're going to have to become a master craftsman , take down walls or worse still, settle on a single bed, the 4ft bed saves the day.
'I didn't even know they made 4ft beds' you'll say to yourself and anyone listening whilst feeling the panic gradually ebb away.
The advantages of the 4ft bed
Besides the fact they can save you from under taking some major construction work, the 4ft bed has lots of advantages. Even if you have ample space in your bedroom then a small double bed can free up valuable space. This is particularly of use in a guest bedroom of a child's bedroom. It can also help a room appear larger. In fact, when new houses are 'dressed' to sell, designers will quite often use a 4ft bed to give the illusion of more space.
Furthermore when a child is moving into a new bed, from a single bed, a 4ft bed can serve as a good transition. Although a lot of children are delighted to get a bigger bed they can often feel overwhelmed going in a full double bed. A 4ft bed helps to maintain a certain amount of cosiness whilst feeling uber grown up at the same time.

One final consideration...
When considering the purchase of a 4ft bed you must make sure you take heed of all the overall dimensions/ This is especially crucial if the reason why you are buying a 4ft bed in the first place is because it can't be larger than a specific size. Whilst the mattress it holds will always measure 120x 190cms the bases themselves can vary. For a example a wooden bed with a chunky head and foot end might measure considerable more than the mattress. If trying to keep your measurements trim then the divan style beds are the best options to consider as they will be closest in size to mattress measurements. The essential package, as picture below, is always a popular choice with those purchasing a 4ft bed.
