How many people share your bed at night? Do you ever feel that your bed isn’t big enough? Here’s the easy solution!

While visiting friends in Maroubra, I was delighted to spy the ultimate family bed in the master bedroom. It’s big enough for two adults plus four children, perhaps even more!

The ultimate family bed, January 2012
A king-sized bed and a queen-sized bed join together to create the ultimate family bed with hardly a bump or a crack between them.

I’ve been thinking for a while about sleeping arrangements. While travelling, we sleep together in close quarters, and I wonder if a house wastes space on having rooms for sleeping. It would be more efficient to pull out a mattress and lay it down in a multi-purpose room. But if I was going to have a bedroom where we all slept, it could end up looking something like this.

What do you think? Would you like this in your bedroom? Is it big enough to sleep your family comfortably?
