    Is a 10' 3" x 9' room a double? Are tennants happy with a 4' bed?

    Hi everyone,

    More of a muing than a question. I rent 4 rooms each as single occupancy.

    The size of two of these rooms are 10' 3" x 9'. I can fit a standard double (thoh one side against a wall) double bed, wardrobe, chest and bedside cabinet without it being too cramped.

    However, it got me wondering is this a double or single room size?

    Also, I have seen "small double" beds for sale; these are 4 foot rather than 4 foot 6" in size, and I wondered if these were acceptable for tennants?

    Any thoughts?

    Regards

    I would definitely put a 4' double in a room that size. Sleeping in one does not feel significantly different from in a standard 4'6" double but it gives useful extra space in the room.

    Students at least seem more than happy with them.

    I would advertise the room as 'a small double room', however, or give the dimensions.

      The HMO space standards sets the room size for single occupancy as 6.5 sqm, and for double as 10 sqm. Your room falls in the middle at 8.57sqm.

      agree with MTG, put in a 4ft bed.

      advertising ... as large single or small double? which would you choose??
