Small single beds, like their name implies, are the smallest types of beds you can find. They’re often used by young kids or adults who have really small rooms and are inactive sleepers. They are also used in guest rooms or other minimal rooms used rooms in the house. It’s easy to get them out of the way when they’re not in use since they’re so light and easy to move. They’re quite common and affordable.
They’re the perfect transition beds for kids who’ve outgrown their cot. However, they are a bit smaller than the standard single bed, and children waste no time outgrowing them.

Are Small Single Beds a Good Size?
They’re a good size depending on who’s planning to sleep on them. Being only 30 inches wide, they’re best suited for kids. Adults sleeping on these kinds of beds might be a little uncomfortable because when lying in a fully stretched position, an adult’s arms and legs would hang off a small single bed. Adults are better off buying a full-size or a twin bed, except when they do not have enough space in their bedrooms to fit these slightly bigger beds. A single adult, who has a small body size and lives in a small room, may be able to enjoy a small single bed.
No, these kinds of beds are not made to be shared. Being only 30 inches wide, a small single bed only offers 15 inches to each person sharing the bed, and it is almost impossible for an adult to get a good night’s rest on only 15 inches of space.

Small Single Bunk Beds
Sometimes to save space, parents prefer to put one or two small single bunk beds in the kids’ room instead of having traditional beds. This allows you to fit more kids into fewer rooms and also provides a lot of additional storage space in the room. These bunk beds are also sometimes used in college rooms, guest rooms, vacation cabins, and cottages. Whatever brand of small single bunk bed you decide to buy, ensure that the top bunk is properly secured with guardrails as there is not a lot of space to roll around on a small single bed. Also, always make sure that only one person sleeps on the top bunk at a time, and children under 6 years are not allowed on the top bunk.
