What is a doubter? The advantages of a one-and-a-half bed!

There are different sizes of beds such as queen, single and double. But what exactly is a doubter, what dimensions does it have and for whom and what situations is it suitable?

What is a doubter?

A doubter bed is also called a bed and a half. Not that half a person can fit in it, and the person dangling next to it with their left side, for example, it’s thankfully not that bad. In terms of size, it’s between a single and double bed. For when someone sleeps with you sometimes, but not always. Or for a bit more space on your own, of course.

How big is a doubter?

A single bed is 90 centimeters wide and the narrowest double bed with 160 centimeters across (queen size) . A doubter is 140 centimeters wide and falls nicely in between. Of course, a 120-centimetre-wide bed is also counted as a doubter. Wondering what other bed sizes there are?

The perfect bed for small bedrooms

Maybe you have a cramped bedroom with not actually enough room for a double bed. A doubter can then provide the solution. It’s not very spacious with just the two of you, so you and your relationship must love being cozy. A doubter with drawers creates extra storage space. Your winter clothes can go under your bed in summer, giving you enough space for a smaller wardrobe. But of course, you can also use these as pull-out bedside tables, although that might require a bit more creativity.

Even for children, not only with an eye on the future, but a doubter is also ideal when they make the transition from their toddler bed to a real ‘big people’s bed’. Staying over? No hassle with air beds or a loose mattress. Your offspring’s doubter can easily accommodate two children. And little kids become big teenagers, with possible sleepovers of a different kind. And although as a parent you may not want to think about it, a doubter gives them more comfort than a single bed. And then you’d probably rather they flit about in a doubter than in an alley, car or unsafe place. Either way, a doubter for your child will last for years and you won’t regret it.

Advantages of a one-and-a-half bed

A doubter takes up less space than a double bed, making it ideal for small bedrooms. A queen-size bed also looks good in a student room that is often cramped. The bed frame of a doubter offers plenty of extra storage space. Its larger size than a single bed gives the sleeper(s) extra space. A doubter is generally cheaper than a double bed, so for those who don’t spend every night together in it, this can certainly be a financially fine choice.
