I have decided on a mattress size. Well not really a mattress, but a good mattress topper which is essentially what I sleep on every night anyway. (Why do mattresses cost so much? It’s crazy!) The loft can easy fit a Queen but that would be the whole loft. I am not a large man and lets face it the bigger the bed the more the sheets cost as well. I have decided on the size: Full. Gives plenty of sleep area and room to ‘live’ in.
Here is roughly what I am dealing with. I am planning a 15″ ledge (clearing?) at the front of the loft, between the mattress and ledge, for ease of climbing up and down. Especially if I have anything moving into/out-of the loft. An additional 12″ between the bed and back wall and window. I’m thinking removable, but sturdy, shelves and nightstand. After all, I like to have some water nearby in the night.
So now there is another ToDo on my list. But I know the mattress fits and might give it a trial night this weekend.
