Maid's bed - where to get one?

Post by Juls » Sun, 15 Aug 2004 10:26 pm

Need advice where to get maid's bed - I heard they are the same just a bit smaller in size. Tried IKEA but they seem to have regular sized beds only.

Thanks

For less regular sized beds you would need to get them custom made. inj Singapore most single beds are either singles or super singles.

Bed for small space

If the maid's room is small, consider a loft bed (remember to check the height of the room too) or a pull out single-sized bed to allow more room for a living area like a desk and chair or small lounge underneath. Ikea has loft beds - a normal height one where a short 5'1" person can just about stand underneath and a shorter one where there is enough head room for someone sitting at a desk. Good luck.

OK - If you really don't want to treat the maid as a human being u can by roll up floor mattresses from most department stores that are commonly used for this purpose.

Try Giant - Third Floor of Parkway Parade.

BTW if you ask your maid what she would prefer she will probably sleep on the floor rather then tell you so be considerate as I sure u are.

I have to admit the treament handed out to maids by locals really gets on my Socialistic Politically Correct Aussie nerves - So sorry if I sound harsh on the issue :oops:

Lots of locals just let them sleep on the floor, even in the kitchen. It's a kind of form of modern day slavery how many of them are treated here.
For example, I know of two indon maids in the same house whose master has them go out to his 20 some business outlets and clean them in the evenings. Totally against the law as servants aren't supposed to work outside the house, etc. I told the girls that I could report the master to the authorities, and they begged me not to because they said they were sure that they would be sent back home. Really sad. And these girls get NO day off at all.
