{The Abode} Small Space Bed Solution

 Even though Miss New York doesn't live with us, we still have most of her belongings in her "old" room for when she visits.
To see how the room last looked, click here
The room has built in Ikea cabinetry and it had an Ikea bed that fit perfectly in the nook the cabinetry created.  The bed was always difficult to make and was a real shin killer too (SHARP edges). It eventually broke and we needed a replacement.
 We looked for a futon but they were all too long.  I researched small sofa beds and most of them were twin beds, we wanted to keep the bed a full/queen.
 Ikea to the rescue with this Lycksele Lovas sleeper sofa.
 
It's a cute love seat when it's folded up and a full size bed when opened. There are a few washable cover options to choose from and we went with the Rasta white.  It fits perfectly in the cabinet nook and gives us lots more floor space.
Here's the view looking from the sofa bed.  There are mirrored cabinets on the other wall as well as a desk and shelves.
Even with the bed open, there's more floor space.  We added a feather mattress topper to the Ikea mattress and are able to use her old bedding on the new bed. What do you think?

Brilliant idea. Miss 23 has been looking for a sofa bed. I'll point this out to her.

Hey, I forgot to tell you. When I went to the big city, the Twin Cities for me ;-) I went to Ikea for the first time. LOVED IT!!

I like this idea. I am going to show my husband because he enjoyed Ikea too.
