Replacing twins with king

I have search around the site and couldn't ever see anyone mention that when replacing beds that anyone considered loosing some storage space for the added comfort of box spring under their mattress.

I have twins and am thinking of taking out the drawer stand in-between. Then making some sort of 4 legged table to sit in between to bridge between the twins. This would create a large area for a bed.

The are several negatives to this including losing the useful floor space, having to shimmy out the bottom of the bed and access to the overhead cabinets as well as the under bed cabinets.

On the plus side, no more being jammed in between the curved wall and the cabinet center table/drawer. Thoughts?

Been there, tried it, tore it all out and put in a shorty queen.

See the thread in my signature line on the '78 Sovereign.

Biggest downside of the "all bed" bedroom was the difficulty in making up the sheets and covers - very difficult to work with. Next biggest downside was the difficulty of actually getting in and out of bed. Access to the overhead compartments was no problem at all. With the 30' Sovereign we did not miss the storage space at all.
