I have a very small home ( about 50 m2 ). Currently in my bedroom I have 2 desks and 3 bookshelves, but there is no space for a bed ( my wife wants to kill me :D ). The bedroom size is about 12 m2 and the public room is about 18 m2.

What can I do for my bed?

  • sleep under the desk.

    Or over it - a loft bed may work better. Although it may have a college dorm room feel.

You could get some ideas from Resource Furniture designs. I have a feeling they're a little pricey (you've got to request quotes), so you may just be able to look at some concepts they have and make a DIY version.

Specifically, if you're looking to have a desk and a bed in the same room, here's a good option:

    Most furniture manufacturers offer a warranty with their products. For example, the cheapo couches I bought a few years ago have a lifetime warranty for frame damage, but only had a one year warranty for upholstery. Something 'upscale' like this bed should definitely come with a reasonable warranty, and if it doesn't I'd steer clear.

Instead of combining desk and bed space, another way to go is to look for ways to combine your bookshelves into your desk. Especially try to find a corner, possibly somewhat round desk with large shelf space.

If you have a dresser, it can be easily replaced by beds with large drawers as the base.

Put shelves up directly on the walls at a decent height to save floor space. You could mount them above and around the desk. I've seen tables built into walls and even some drawers / cabinets. If you can reduce all your current furniture's actual floorspace while keeping the storage space, there should be plenty of room for a bed =)
