Compact and comfortable, a single bed is the classic choice for smaller bedrooms and guest rooms, kids' rooms, and solo sleepers. Choose from wooden, metal, and upholstered frames, and secret storage options that help you save even more floor space.
Are single beds big enough for adults?
Yes - at 6 feet and 3 inches long (190 x 91cm), single beds are made to fit one adult. Whether for a guest room or simply to reclaim more space in a small bedroom, don't feel like you have to rule out a single bed frame just because you're an adult.
However, if you want a little more room to stretch out, or sometimes sleep with a partner (or pet!), then a small double bed can be a good middle ground.

Do they come with storage?
Simple answer, yes! If space-saving is a priority, then storage is a must. A single ottoman bed is the best way to get the most out of the space as it utilises most of the footprint of your bed. Simply lift the mattress to reveal a hidden compartment perfect for clothes, shoes, books, and more.
Another popular choice is a divan bed base. These have drawers in the base that give you ample space to store your things and keep your bedroom tidy.
See our storage bed buying guide if you still need a little extra help deciding which single storage bed to choose.
Guest bed options
If you have a multi-functional room or dedicated guest room, either a single bed or a day bed can be a great choice. Day beds are especially fun as they can be used as a sofa and a bed, meaning there's not a lot of preparation to do when guests appear - just add bedding. Made from a sturdy metal bed frame, our day beds are perfect for everyday use.
Air beds and folding beds are perfect choices for a busy home. You can easily hide these types of beds away when not in use, but you can be sure your guest will still have a comfortable night's sleep when they stay over.
Children's single beds
From stylish metal frames to multifunctional, wooden beds this size can be a great choice for a teenager's room or an older child who's ready for a full-size bed. If you're seeking a new bed for your little one and you're not sure they're quite ready for a grown-up bed, check out our full range of kids' beds.
