Charlie Single Bed Blue £17.50 @ Tesco

18 February 2011

Tesco Charlie Single Bed Blue I love metal framed beds, they just look fabulous in a bedroom. Give it a sort of old fashioned look. Like the iron bedsteads of Victorian bedrooms maybe! Tesco has reduced the price of the Charlie Single Bed, Blue, down from £70 to £17.50.

This single bed from the Charlie range has a metal frame with a slatted base completed by a powder coated blue finish. On the downside, although as parents you'll be used to this by now, the bed frame requires self-assembly.

The bed has a clearance of 29.5cm between it and the floor. Which is a good size if you want to slide toy boxes under there. I have four under my son's bed. His is against a wall, so he's positioned the toyboxes near the front, to create a tunnel behind the boxes. A lovely secret space he can enjoy (although I do need to clean there regularly as I think he likes to eat snacks in there!).

A mattress is not included. You will need to buy one separately. The bed takes a 3 foot single mattress. A Shortie Mattress, measuring 2 foot six inches, costs £50 on the site. This mattress is a cut down version of an adult mattress, suited to children's beds. It has an open coil spring unit.
