The rumours are true: I have been sleeping on a mattress on the floor for six months. No, I am not adopting a Japanese futon-style sleeping arrangement (although that is super minimalist…) – my boyfriend and I simply could just not agree on a bed that we both wanted. We debated sleigh beds (yuck), day beds (yes please), and even floating platform beds, but not once did we come to an agreement. Then, after months of deliberation, our saviour came in the form of, you guessed it, an IKEA bed. It has heaps of storage space not just underneath, but also along the sides and the headboard, and so eliminates our need to buy dressers and side tables, meaning less clutter! This is, in my humble opinion, the holy grail of beds.
