Here is a prime example how a little design sense, iron beds and ingenuity can turn an otherwise wasted space into a peaceful retreat. We all have our idea of how much space is needed to set up a particular size bed. Usually we want walking space around the perimeter of the bed so it can be easily made, when not in use. But that’s not always a luxury with some spaces. I’ve seen space were the owners actually had the side rails on their bed shorten to squeeze the bed frame into a prohibitively small area.
If a space is large enough to get a mattress into it. It usually is large enough to squeeze in a metal bed to accommodate whatever size mattress you have.
I had a friend that had converted an old school bus into a “tricked out” motor home with a pot belly stove, shower w/ solar panels to heat the hot water tank, flat screen TV w/ satellite dish and last but certainly not least………a antique iron bed nestled all the way in the back of the bus.
I’ve yet to see a space that couldn’t be enhanced with the use of antique iron beds.
