A Guide to Buying Beds for Student Accommodation

A Guide to Buying Beds for Student Accommodation

Are you gearing up to furnish a student accommodation space? Whether you’re a university housing coordinator, property manager, or even a student entrepreneur setting up a dormitory-style living arrangement, one thing’s for sure: you’re going to need beds. And not just any beds – you’ll want sturdy, comfortable ones that won’t break the bank.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about purchasing beds in bulk for student accommodation. From understanding your options to navigating the buying process and even some tips on maximizing your budget, we’ve got you covered. So, let’s dive in!

Understanding Your Options

  1. Bunk Beds: Bunk beds are a fantastic choice for maximizing space in shared living areas. They’re available in various configurations, such as twin-over-twin or twin-over-full, making them ideal for dorm-style setups.
  2. Loft Beds: Loft beds are excellent for smaller rooms or studio apartments where space is limited. By elevating the sleeping area, they free up valuable floor space for desks, storage, or even a cozy lounge area underneath.
  3. Single Beds: Sometimes simplicity is key. Single beds are a straightforward yet practical option for student accommodation. They’re versatile and can easily fit into various room layouts, providing comfort without the added complexity of bunk or loft configurations.
  4. Small Double Beds: Small Doubles are very popular with student lets, saving space over a traditional double bed.

Assessing Your Needs

Now that you know your options, it’s time to assess your specific needs:

  • Room Size: Consider the dimensions of your rooms. Will bunk or loft beds help maximize floor space, or are single beds a better fit?
  • Budget: Determine your budget for purchasing beds. Because of the nature of students and student accommodation it is often a temptation to buy the cheapest beds you can find but this can lead to having to buy new beds sooner as the quality of cheap beds can be poor.
  • Student Preferences: Think about the preferences of the students who will be using the accommodation. Are they comfortable with bunk beds for a shared living experience, or do they prefer the privacy of single beds?
  • Durability: Look for beds that are built to last. Student accommodation experiences high turnover rates, so investing in durable, quality beds will save you money in the long run. If damage occurs then you can always get in touch as we offer spare parts for most of the beds we sell – meaning a low cost repair rather than having to buy a new bed!
