8 Shorty Beds Perfect for Kids or Adults

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Shorty beds are shorter and narrower than regular single size beds, making them a great space saving solution. Some parents might prefer to get a shorty bed for their kids, when they have outgrown their cot. When this happens, parents can either buy a toddler size bed (which measures 70cm x 170cm) or a single size bed. However a single size bed might be too big, but a shorty bed will fit just perfectly until they are ready for a real single size bed.

What is a shorty bed?

They are also called short beds, junior length beds, or shorties.  They come in various sizes, but the most common size measures 75 cm wide (or 2ft 6 inches) by around 175cm long (or 5ft 9 inches), but there some other sizes as well. Shorty beds can be used by adults as well. If you have a small room and want to save some space for other furniture and items in the room, a shorty bed is a great option.  You can even find a short king size bed which measures 5ft wide by 6ft 3 inches long.
