By Meg Escott. On this page you'll find bedroom size info showing bedroom dimensions and bedroom layouts for each bed size. This information is part of the bedroom design series.

I'll start by saying that most building codes and as it happens, the UK housing act require a minimum floor area of 70 square foot eg 7 x 10ft bedroom with a ceiling height of 7ft 6ins of ceiling height for a room to be 'habitable'.
This matters because a single bedroom could fit into a space smaller than this imagine a cozy bedroom for a toddler using a small attic room but it won't meet this requirement and you won't be able to list it as a bedroom on a real estate listing. You can see some more single bedroom layouts on the kids bedroom design page. Here's two 8 x 9ft 2.

The layout doesn't work nearly as well as with a 7 x 10 ft design though. It's not as efficient. The space left over at the end of the bed is an awkward space to fill - there's only room for some shallow storage with 2ft of circulation at the end of the bed. Using a pocket door means that there's no door swing into the wardrobe door or the desk chair.
If you're going to go smaller - just be aware that it won't be recognized as a bedroom - and make sure there's a planned fire escape route. This tiny single bedroom 6ft 6in x 6ft 6in would fit in a single bed, small wardrobe and desk but would be very cramped and would not comply with building code. This room would also benefit from a pocket door. I've seen this arrangement when a closet with a window was converted to make a small bedroom when two children were sharing a room - come to think of it the door would have swung out into the bedroom.
Here's a couple more single bedrooms which are bigger but still come in under the building code requirement. When it comes to twin bedrooms two single beds the minimum size is about 9ft x 9ft 2.In Partnership With:.

The double bed was comfortable and had an all in one headboard with bedside shelves and lamps either sideSo I understand that bed sizes are different in the UK than they are in the U.
We're looking at staying at the Sleep Inn City of London Hotel for our trip in August and one website says that they have King beds, another says Queen. First question - does anyone know what the actual standard double room size is it's all listed as double on Expedia, which is where I'm booking because we can get a night there free? My husband and I tend to need a lot of space - we're both tall and there's no way we could sleep in what the U.
If need be, we'd get twin beds, but I need to know what our options are. A web site targeted at UK people will probably say "king" while one targeted at US people will probably say "queen". A UK king is similar to a US queen. Be aware too that in the UK a "twin" room is likely to have 2 single beds 36 inches wide x 75 inches long rather than the 2 doubles that I often see in my visits to the USA.
Also, as the width of beds increases that doesn't always seem to increase the lengthmany beds seem to be a standard length even if the bed is wider than average. If its likely to be an issue I'd advise checking specifically with each hotel rather than taking it for granted. Without accessing the website; from trips to US and buying the excellent quality bedding there at knockdown prices to we UK folk; I suggest:.
This is not definitive as we have seen different sizes on packs of both US and UK makers of bedding being declared as King, Queen, whatever. Sadly for some, many UK hotels have more "twin" rooms than doubles; presumably because this gives more flexibility. Some hotels present a standard twin set up but will join the beds together if you're friendly.
Being educated on the old 50s and 60s US soaps and comedies, many Brits believe US folk only ever use single beds, even on honeymoons, and I do know hotels who automatically allocate twins to American guests. Even the more recent shows Ghost Whisperer - one of my favourites show young newly married folk wearing copious clothing in bed even when Conversely in Franceyou can find it difficult to get single beds and the doubles can be very small indeed c'est la vie en France!
A standard double is 4' 6" x 6' 3" and a king is 5' by 6' 6" There are Superkings but these are not normally found in hotels. Apparently in the US there is no actual reg size for a Queen it's just a descriptor.
Twin beds are usually 2 singles which will probably be 3' wide and 6' 3" long. Sleep Inn does list King size which should be adequate unless you're both taller than 6' 6". Look on their own website for the most accurate info and prob the best rates.
We're not that tall and both under 6ft. However it's always seemed weird that a bed would be, say 6ft or 6ft3in, with the bed "industry" considering that is OK for 6 footers and more. Don't we have pillows at the top? Our heads will "start" a few inches lower, and we don't want our feet up against the bottom of the bed.
At 5ft9in, I find I can touch the bottom of the bed when my head is a comfy distance from the top! I've seen some massively wide beds in US but again, the length never seems that great. Then we have the more normal 2ft6in and 3ft. Many older houses had "bed recesses" which would take only a 4ft wide and 4ft6in long bed.
These could contain mum and dad plus numerous kids sleeping head to toe; this is not that long ago! From experience of some tiny city centre hotel rooms, I think the saw comes out and makes the beds even smaller.
Agree Buddy Lancs. I'm 5 11 and invested in a King your bed should ideally be 3" longer than your height to allow for relaxation in bed and because your spine lengthens slightly overnight Changed my life.Photo: Paris sous la neige. Snow in Paris. Lodging accommodations are often ranked according to a star, or in the case of AAA, a diamond system that allows travelers to easily identify what amenities are available at a certain property.
The star system has less to do with price than amenities, though the price usually increases with the rating.

Four-star hotels usually have upscale furnishings, luxury bedding and other amenities, including hair dryers, high-end bath products, flat-screen televisions, state-of-the-art electronic devices and high-quality towels.

The concierge at this level property should be able provide information as well as help with planning by making reservations. Front-desk service should be above average. Getting food at four-star hotel should be easy. This level hotel should have a sit-down dining restaurant, a lounge and room service with extended hours.
It is likely that the on-site restaurant offers fine dining, while lighter fare is available in the lounge.

A four-star hotel should have a pool and fitness center, and many also have full-service spas.Master Suite: inside London's most expensive hotel suite
A high-end gift shop is also often available. Not every four-star hotel offers a full range of business services, but each should have current technology and a business center available for guest use.
