The King bed frame hasn’t been with us for very long. It dates back to the 1950s, when parents everywhere realized they needed more space for their kids to sleep in the bed with them. Just kidding: it was a marketing move! Mattress companies realized that if they made it, people would buy, and boy were they right. Far superior to the twin, double, and even the queen (we have issues with the gendered nomenclature but will let it rest for the sake of clarity here), the king bed frame stretches an impressive 78” x 74” — that’s a lot of space to roll around on.
Of course, king size beds come with their own set of challenges: most townhomes and other prefabricated constructions don’t build bedrooms with a king bed frame in mind. You move in with a smaller bed, and by the time you realize that your body deserves better, you’ve got your organization system more or less worked out. That’s why we’ve put together a few sneaky little space-save hacks just for you.
