Creative small beds ideas for small spaces

When you are young the possibility of buying a large home is difficult.

On the other hand, a younger body and mind can find comfort even in smaller spaces, coming up with ingenious solutions meant to save up space and provide everything we might need at the same time. 

As we grow up the tendency for bigger, airier spaces becomes a necessity. Young or old nonetheless, saving up on space should be a priority and maintaining a balance between space and comfort should be achieved.

Common goal

Space is a big issue in small apartments, or houses with big families. Even larger places sometimes have a dearth of space,  especially when inhabited by compulsive buyers.

Sometimes, we find out that we didn’t manage the space of our houses for many reasons, though the main reason is : our house, or our interior design simply lacks a well-organized storage system. 

Let’s check out  some small beds ideas, practical yet cozy solutions that cover everything from bunk beds for kid’s rooms to dorm ideas for college students,  and smart solutions that incorporate the sleeping and storage area all in one. 

The  ideas differ from each other, but with a common goal : how to make the best use of space.

Create three sleeping zones in one

The solution  puts the space to good use, creating three platforms situated at different heights. The structural elements are used for storage, and serve as a ladder at the same time in a discreet composition. 

Use study room as a bedroom

For students in a somewhat cramped dorm space, creative designing goes a long way.

Smart furniture will save space

This clever solution provides multiple functions from bookshelves, study area coffee table to the  beds. It’s biggest advantage is represented by the small footprint it occupies.

Millennial living

CapitaLand’s  residence business unit, Ascott Limited (Ascott), recently unveiled  Lyf (pronounced ‘life’), designed for millennials who want to experience destinations as locals do.   Lyf is an accommodation tailored  for technopreneurs, start-ups and individuals from music, media and fashion. Unlike conventional serviced apartments, the properties are managed by “Lyf Guards”, millennials who may be residents themselves, community managers, city and food guides, bar keepers and problem solvers all rolled into one. Designed to facilitate interaction between guests, each Lyf property has its own unique personality with fun and quirky design elements. They have ‘connect’ communal spaces, co-working areas that can be easily transformed into zones for workshops or social gatherings. The residence offers a range of apartment layouts from ‘big bed’ rooms (studios) to ‘two of a kind’ rooms (twin rooms) – two private rooms with a shared kitchen. 


A bed over a sofa, or a sofa over a bed. The solution is quite unique, offering a bed that falls over the actual couch in the living space, in the same color and fabric.
