What Houzz contributors are saying:
Here’s another take on a wooden headboard, with the pair created with vertical planks that echo the wide boards of the floor. Painted in white, the vertical wood wall panelling behind lets the headboards’ natural finish stand out.
Small is perfect for usThis wood-panelled twin room inspired so many of your guest room plans – or maybe you just tucked it away for the day you finally have a seaside retreat to do up!What this cabin lacks in space, it makes up for in stacks of style, rustic charm and simple pleasures. The amount of wood in use here is cleverly disguised with white paint and a beautifully treated pale-wood floor. The upcycled headboards add another layer of texture and, teamed with a hint of faded, vintage florals and enamel-look bedside lighting, it creates a sanctuary and a half that evokes a simpler time.

Perhaps make window seat a little wider. It is currently long enough for sleeping. These UK twin beds are about 4-5 inches narrower than standard. Grandpa Bacons fireplace spot was even narrower. Also, 24” is a pretty standard height for bed mattress which goes with current thinking of dimensions with a taller window seat. CONSIDER THIS DRAWBACK: seats that are this deep can make forward searing difficult unless there are deep pillows.
. Twin beds. These beds are U.K. single beds, which are approximately 35 inches wide, as opposed to American twin beds, which are usually 39 inches wide. Those precious extra 8 inches leave a comfortable space between the two. Also worth noticing is the smart reading-light strategy — sconces mounted to the wall save space.
