The Captain’s bed: the Ultimate Space Saving bed
What is a Captain’s bed?
A captain’s bed is a bed which sits on top of both storage drawers and a pull-out trundle mattress. It is the ultimate in space-saving savviness, allowing maximum storage for small spaces. Captain’s beds are typically slightly higher off the ground than a standard single bed to account for the storage and mattress underneath.
Why is it called a Captain’s bed?
As the name implies, the inspiration for the Captain’s bed design comes from the beds used on board ships. The Captain’s Quarters was typically the largest individual sleeping quarters on a ship, however all space is precious, and a standalone bed would be highly impractical. So a bed was designed to be raised up with extra storage underneath.
