Is a twin bed worth it?

We’re sure you’ve already listened to many arguments for and against buying twin beds and that instead you should buy a double bed or a king size or a custom made bed. Blah. Blah. Blah. Enough is enough. It’s time you knew for yourself if the twin bed will end up being a worthy investment for you or not. Therefore, we’ve decided to highlight the pros and cons for you and the findings of all our research so that you don’t have to! So, without further ado - let’s get into it!

What is a twin bed?

No doubt you’ve heard of this bed by its more popular name - the single bed. The smallest standard bed size available on the market, this bed has always been a massive favourite with both young children and single adults. 

What size/dimensions is a twin bed?

Measuring in at a length of 190cm and a width of 90cm, this bed is on the smaller size for most but definitely roomy enough for young kids! On the other hand, some adults may prefer this bed too but it has a strong reputation as being a bed favourite for kids.

What are the pros of a twin bed?

Below we have listed some pros of this bed:

  • Available from most retailers, for example, the grey upholstered Ottoman storage bed at Furnitureful
  • Because they are a smaller size, they are great for rooms with less space. Their bed frames  are very compact and can be easily moved in during delivery.

What are the cons of a twin bed?

Below we have listed some cons of this bed:

  • They can end up being significantly cheaper than larger beds. For example, two twins pushed together equate the size of a king size bed but are much more cheaper.
