5 sleeping solutions for small spaces

It’s official: UK homes are the smallest in Europe! And with house prices making upsizing difficult if not impossible, more and more of us are trying to cram growing families into homes meant for one or two.

Here at Hyder Living we’re constantly on the lookout for clever ideas to make small-space living easier. Our range of high-quality adults’ and children’s beds includes a wealth of multifunctional designs that make the most of every possible inch of floor (and wall) space, from compact bunks and beds that double up as seating to ottomans with in-built storage. If you’re looking for a bed that’s smart and useful as well as incredibly comfortable, check out these space-saving gems…

Built-in storage

Our stylish Buckingham ottoman bed has a sturdy sprung slatted frame and offers heaps of storage space in its base for blankets, pillows and duvets, which can be accessed without hassle thanks to its end-opening easy lift mechanism.

Pull-out trundle
A great space-saving solution for kids’ sleepovers or unexpected guests, our Maya day bed is the perfect spot for lounging during the day, but by night transforms into two single beds thanks to its easy-access pull-out trundle.

Live/sleep space
With its cool “loft living” vibe, the Cosmic high studio sleeper covers all the bases: studying, sleeping and lounging. Featuring a built-in work area with a tempered glass desk, it makes maximum use of vertical space, plus there’s plenty of room underneath for an optional Solo chair and futon.

Room below
Raised high on elegant solid wood legs, our Windermere double bed makes the most of the ‘dead’ floor space beneath, allowing easy access to storage bags and boxes while also providing a fantastically comfortable night’s sleep thanks to its strong metal frame and sprung slat base.

Stackable singles
Two beds or one? It’s your choice. Our Colonial bunk bed has been designed with practicality in mind, functioning beautifully as a bunk bed, but easily splitting into two singles as your little ones grow – making it a fabulous long-term investment.
