This article is designed to give you the low down on where to buy small single beds at great prices. Having a single bed in a study or spare room is such a convenience when you have guests or friends to stay, meaning that people won't have to sleep on the floor, and can spend a comfortable night at your house.
If you want to try the bed and mattress on sale for yourself, it's a good idea to go down to a bed shop and see what's on offer. It is important to have a good mattress for a good sleep, thus see if you like a harder or softer bed. Try Furniture Village, Dreams and Ikea for small single beds. If you want cheap divan beds, bed shops are great as they usually have a number of different pieces in one place. Moreover, try local furniture shops which often have branded pieces, and you may be able to get a deal to save some money. For mattress deals, ask store assistants as it may be cheaper to buy the mattress and bed together.
If you're looking online, Tesco online has a great small pine single frame for £99.00, and catalogue store Argos has a Scandinavian pine bed frame for £79.99. If you buy the frame and the mattress separately, you could save money, or upgrade to a higher quality mattress, as the cheapest mattresses can often be uncomfortable. However, if you want to buy a memory foam bed or mattress, you may have to pay for extra money. For a metal bedstead, Asda and Tesco both have some great pieces for low prices, and you can also get bed and mattress delivery, which will save you from trying to fit the frame into the car.
Grab a bargain
If you want to grab a bargain, try getting on eBay and engaging in a bidding war. Additionally, you can also find furniture for free on FreeCycle, a website where people give away unwanted items to new homes for free. People have even picked up nearly new pieces for free. You may have to pick it up yourself, but it's worth the petrol money. *Prices are correct as of 09.08.11
