If you have a small apartment which is just a studio, then space is a premium. You will want to find a comfortable bed, but something that will not take up too much room. It is good to be aware of all of the options available to you, so that you know what you can choose from.
You are more likely to be able to come up with a perfect solution for you, if you are aware of the choices that you have. Here is a selection of options that could be helpful for you.
Sleeper sofas can be a great option because they have a multi function. You can use them for sitting in the daytime, which is great for both you and any guests you have. Then you can convert it to a bed at night time as have a comfortable sleep. It will save you having to buy both a bed and sofa, which could save a significant amount of money.
These sleeper sofas come in a selection of sizes, styles, patterns and colours, which means that you can easily find one to fit your requirements and taste.
A Murphy bed is a great idea if you want something space saving. Also known as a hideaway bed, this can allow you to have a queen size bed in a small space because you can fold it away when it is not in use.
Of course, you do not have to have a bed this big, but it will still save you a significant amount of room, whatever the size. You will have to make sure that you do not place furniture in the space where the bed will fold down in to but it will give you a roomier feeling and more space to walk around, when it is folded away.
Tri Fold Mattress
A tri Fold Matress is another idea for a bed that not only can save space but also money. These Japanese style beds, do tend to be cheaper but often preferred as a guest bed rather than a permanent one.
They are very easy to hide away because they fold up but you will have to sleep on the floor, which may not be a preferable option for some people. You will also have to make the bed every day and this may get tedious after a while.
Second Level Bed
If you do not like any of these ideas then a second level bed could work well. The big advantage of these is that you do not have to fold them away in the daytime, as they are always there. They are high enough to put furniture underneath so you could have a sofa or table and chairs there, for example.
Of course some people may not like the idea of their bed being on display all of the time and they may not like the construction work needed to make one. There would also be a problem for anyone who did not like heights or climbing ladders.
A final idea is to have a conventional bed but hide it away somehow. This means that you will not have to fold it away in the daytime and it will not be on view all of the time.
You can use a screen, curtain or sliding door to separate your bed from the rest of the room. This will mean that you can have a private sleeping area as well as a living area. It could make the apartment look small though.
There are advantages and disadvantages of all of these studio apartment sleeping solutions. There will be an element of personal taste with regards to which one you like the best. You may also be limited by the shape of the room you have, as well as the size of it. You may have limits of construction work that you can do, if you are renting as well.
