A compact single, or otherwise known as a small single, is the smallest full bed commonly available in the UK. Just a little smaller than a standard single, the small single measures 2’6” x 6’3”, making it a perfect size for children who have outgrown their cot and are ready for their first bed. Whereas they are especially suited to a young child’s bedroom, small singles are often ideal for older children who are sharing a bedroom. Two or three small singles will offer more space in the room compared to full-size single beds.
Bedsits and homes with small rooms can also benefit from a small single bed. The small single bed size will save space while accommodating most children and smaller adults, ensuring more room for storage and will still provide an adequate level of comfort.
