The full size bed is the best option for your bedroom if you are looking to save some money and space into your bedroom.

This size can sleep two people and you can put more furniture around your bed, if you don’t have a big room. Keep in mind that this size is good for two people, but not perfect. You will not have a lot of space left in your bed. And you will be closer to your partner.
