thoughts on queen size beds v double sized beds
In my HMO's I let to singletons only. WYP's or students. Rooms are spacious, have work-desks, massive wardrobes,circulation space & double beds. Recently one of my students asked why all the bedrooms had double-beds... because she would prefer a queen-sized bed and a double-up on the work-desk space.
We compromised to moved the bed around to fit a work table in for her architectural drawings. She is a long-term tenant[6 years] so I'm thinking of swopping her double- bed for a queen-size bed as a trial run. She is an asset to the house & immense practical help to me & other tenants..a can-do, unselfish person whose pov counts for a lot.
I provide ALL bedding so the outlay would include smaller fitted-sheets.
Wondered if colleagues had come across this.
Obviously when she does vacate, I'd swop back if the incomer didn't want all the extra work-space. I've had Arch.students before & they do need much more spread out space than others.
The student rightly said that a double -bed in a room is open invitation for 'sleepovers' and loud nocturnal activity which in her experience in her previous house, had been a cause of friction. No pun intended!
Comments please. POV's and thanks in advance for those colleagues.
