    I don't see what the problem is. You get rid of the big bed and buy a smaller one.

    Job done. Oh, apart from buying linens that will fit the smaller bed.

    A regular bed is the right size for 1 person, a queen is good,  but will have unused space.  A king is just too big, and a twin is too small for 1 person.  Assuming you are about normal size.    If the room is too small and you are alone, move some of the furniture to a different room.  The dresser is more than you need. Get rid of the dresser mirror and get a full length wall mirror and put it behind a door that covers it.  Put a tv on top of it.  You might consider buying a new bedroom suite to fit the room, and just the pieces that fit your situation.

    I did that about a year ago when I moved to a smaller house after my wife's passing. I did not find it to be a problem as all.

    How do you make the switch: Sell the king size bed. Donate all the king size linens. Buy a twin size bed. Buy twin size linens.

    Sleep in it.

    You're not as special as all that, it won't be a big deal to change.

    Get a really comfortable twin and you won't miss the old one whatever the size.

    Wow, that is like going from an SUV down to a compact car. It will be a big adjustment.

    You might have to say goodbye to one of your legs

    Sell, leave, give away the king bed. Buy a twin bed (plus twin sheets, and use whatever size blanket you want). You just missed all of the Memorial Day mattress sales (!)
