Single High Sleeper frame that DD could stand under?

(12 Posts)

I'm wondering whether anyone can help.

I'm trying to find a single high sleeper that DD could stand under. Rather annoyingly, in IKEA I can find a double high sleeper frame that has 176cm clearance between the bottom of the bed base and the floor (rather than height of the whole thing), but being a double it is way too wide for the space available Stora

There is a single high sleeper that has 145cm clearance between the bed base and floor - which is the biggest clearance I've been able to find on a single high sleeper so far - (DD is 146 cm, so I envisage if she sits at her desk under this, there's lots of opportunity to whack her head when she stands up!) It is however 97cm wide, which would fit the space well.

I don't want a high sleeper with added furniture as DD wants to choose a separate workstation, chair and bookcase that she can put underneath that fit what she needs.

Does what I'm looking for exist?!

Thanks

I'm only away of the ikea one, sorry.

BUT I had a high bed from about 6 (I think) till 19, I'm about 165cm tall and I very rarely hit my head, you get used to not straightening up till you've moved out from under it.

My mum was constantly hitting her head though grin in all those years she didn't learn (then my brother got one too -twice the bumps)

There is a company that will make a high sleeper to any height, width, and length you like and sell a mattress that fits. They are steel and painted in a huge range of colours. If you google you may find them. Sorry, can't link

Don't know if that will work?

Kids fun time beds have high sleepers

Sorry, that one won't be high enough

Do you have a really high ceiling as well? The snag we found was that if there was room to stand up under the bed, there was all the more chance of whacking your head sitting up in the bed, so beware!

Thanks for the ideas - and for the point about banging head on sitting up in bed - hadn't thought of that... blush

I'll have a look at Made to Measure beds - really appreciate it!

I have tall children and low ceilings. I'd go for the lower height and add a wheelie chair so she can scoot out backwards before bothering to stand up.
