Convertible bed solution

Hi all - just wanted to share our solution to the couples sleeping situation. We created a twin xl platform bed with large storage drawers underneath. Super comfortable for single traveler. When together we prefer to sleep together so we have a pullout “extender” and an extender mattress that makes it a full xl. Plenty of room and comfortable. The extender mattress fits behind the living room gaucho or can be used as a bolster to create a day bed. Click image for larger version

No, we had both mattresses custom made locally. Wanted to be sure they matched in comfort & height. $300 for both. We use a thick quilted mattress pad over both, so I don’t feel the seam between them.

Thank a bunch
Chris

Check out IKEA for day beds

We use an IKEA folding mattress that is very comfortable and fits our original goucho in a 1965 caravel. They have a number of good options that you may want to investigate.

Thank you I will look into an Ikea folding mattress. That sounds like a great solution.
