Folding bed with a sofa – which one to choose?

A folding bed with a sofa has more than one face. Depending on the mechanisms used in it, we can choose different models of beds with additional functionalities. Thanks to this, we can choose the bed exactly what we expect. Today we present two different models of folding beds with a sofa – Smartbed O Sofa and Smartbed V Sofa Box. We advise which bed in what space will work best and what we can expect from … a modern sofa with smart bed.

A folding bed with a sofa, such as Smartbed O Sofa

Smartbed O Sofa is a double folding bed  that closes horizontally. Most often, this model of furniture is called a wallbed. Although, when it comes to solutions, the modern wall wall has little to do with its predecessor from the last century. Thanks to modern mechanisms, the bed opens or closes noiselessly and smoothly. Changing the arrangement of the bed from day to night and vice versa takes only a few seconds. Thanks to the retarders and gas cylinders, the front of the bed with the mattress and bedding appears and disappears automatically – all you need to do is initiate its movement by pulling in the right direction.

Sofa attached to the front of the bed also opens and closes automatically. The backrest of the sofa and all its elements hide under the bed during sleep, and only the sides of the sofa – armrests remain visible. During the day in the folded version we have a full-size sofa – BUT – its width depends on the width of the bed. Due to the fact that the bed opens horizontally, this piece of furniture is recommended in narrow rooms or with an arrangement that prevents vertical opening of the bed. The so-called. “wagons” rooms are a place where a wall mural finds its best place. But it is not everything. Because the piece of furniture is not high in itself, it fits well in rooms with small-size furniture. And last but not least: Smartbed O Sofa can be an independent piece of furniture or be a part of a building designed by us or already existing.

A folding bed with a sofa, such as a Smartbed V Sofa Box

Our Smartbed V Sofa Box is a folding bed with a sofa for special tasks. The vertically retractable bed has the same systems and modern solutions as the Smartbed O Sofa described earlier. So it guarantees equally comfortable rest and sleep, and comfort of use. What distinguishes this model above all is the sofa. Which you can design and adapt to your needs:

  • it can be attached to the front of the bed or it can be an independent piece of furniture
  • as an independent element of the bed – if necessary, it is an additional place to sleep
  • instead of traditional backs, it has comfortable, soft cushions that need to be removed before unfolding the bed. What to do with them then? Read on…
  • under the sofa seat there is a large chest: for those cushions, additional bedding (the beds in the Smartbed wardrobe hide not only “out” but also bedding), everyday items of rare use
  • the sofa can be any size (see photo), independent of the width of the bed
  • the sofa can be symmetrical, asymmetrical, it can also be a corner sofa
  • depending on expectations, it can have 2 armrests, 1 armrest, 0 armrests
  • when opening the bed, regardless of whether it is attached to its front or not, it folds and hides under it like a traditional sofa in wall bed.

 

Two folding  beds with a sofa, seemingly very similar. And yet completely different. Which one to choose, we leave it to you to decide…

metal bunk beds

Metal bunk beds – Smartbed Twin

Metal bunk beds are a good alternative to their classic wooden wooden counterparts. And they are more and more often chosen as their replacements in the arrangement of modern interiors. Thanks to the innovative design, they allow you to go further and close the entire piece of furniture in the closet. Exactly as our patented Smartbed Twin does. That is why today a few words about how the metal bunk bed is constructed and how the mechanism that folds it to the wall works.

metal bunk beds

Metal bunk beds – how does it work?

The bunk bed as smart bed is two beds in a casing based on a solid steel frame joined with eccentrics, which guarantee the stability and durability of the whole furniture. Thanks to two independently operating opening mechanisms, each of the beds separately can be in any position. It is a very convenient solution for those who rest at different times and in a solution when the lower bed has an additional desk function – Smartbed Single.

The mechanisms themselves have a system of gas actuators and retarders. Thanks to their use, the beds open easily and quickly. The operation of the bottom bed is quite obvious – when opening and closing the legs are automatically extended and retracted, and the bed slowly, without using force, after opening a distance of several centimeters, falls gently on its own. The upper bed works similarly, however, the question remains as to the ladder and safeguards against falling out of bed. The ladder is an independent element of the furniture and needs to be set aside (it is light and takes up very little space), and the protective barriers automatically close and rest on the mattress. The whole structure is hidden in a casing made of MDF boards with increased thickness parameters and is so trouble-free that Transforms covered its operation with a 10-year warranty.

Metal bunk beds – advantages

The undeniable advantage of bunk beds Smartbed Twin is space saving. When folded, the furniture takes only 40 cm in width of the room. Everything thanks to the steel structure used in the construction. This is an advantage and a possibility of solutions that no wooden bunk bed can boast. Steel finishes in the open bed version do not take up much space visually either. The whole structure is light, modern and at the same time very solid. Although the illustrations from our latest implementation do not see this, once the mattresses are put in the beds, bedding straps will be installed. Thanks to this, the beds do not need to be made, nor is any additional bedding box needed.

Smartbed Twin is a bed model that adapts to the needs of the interior and users. It can be a separate piece of furniture or be part of a larger wall structure. Thanks to the wide range of colors in the housings and headboards, each of the beds can have a different color or create a uniform whole. Our solution is often chosen for apartments with a small area. For children’s, youth and even utility rooms. Rooms and bed & breakfast are usually small premises, in which every centimeter of free space counts.

murphy bed how

Murphy bed – where, how and when – cont.

murphy bed how

Murphy bed – where to buy, how to mount, who can you recommend? Every day, we answer dozens of questions about multi-functional furniture. We advise, sometimes we advise against, we propose solutions that will be optimal in a given space and for a given person. Among them are those that scroll most often. And we are coming back to them today for everyone who is considering buying murphy bed

Murphy bed – diy?

In the case of models Transforms’ murphy bed, where each order is an individual project, we provide both transport and assembly of the furniture. Of course you can only order our bed mechanism. You can also order a bed in the housing itself. And arrange the whole building yourself. These are frequent practices on the furniture market. But we propose the first option only when we know that the construction of a murphy bed will be taken care of by a reliable, professional carpenter. With the second we are calmer. Because we are responsible for the quality of workmanship and finishing of the furniture.

Why is this so important to us? When designing Smartbed murphy bed, we selected the best mechanisms available on the market. But this is not enough for the bed to be really solid and serve reliably for years. We chose a higher standard finish for the construction of our furniture. The bed frame is made of 38 mm thick boards. That’s a lot more than in murphy bed available on the market. Also, choosing the front and back of the bed, we decided on boards up to 18 mm thick. For what reason? The murphy bed is a piece of furniture in constant motion. Its location changes many times every week. The center of gravity of the furniture is also changing. And because it is a bed, it must be safe, comfortable and withstand the additional loads that its users are. There is no place for savings here. Poles buy furniture for years. And these, especially compact furniture, should work flawlessly. Therefore, before choosing a bed, be sure to check the parameters of its housing.

Is murphy bed safe?

If murphy bed has all the required modern mechanisms, it is 100% safe. Therefore, when deciding to buy murphy bed, apart from the aesthetic value of the furniture, it is worth paying attention to what equipment it has. One of the mechanisms that should have murphy bed are retarders. Thanks to them, the bed falls and closes slowly. Especially the opening moment is important. Thanks to the retarders, the bed first tilts slightly, stops for a split second, and only after a while begins to open independently. Gas cylinders are another important element of murphy bed. They ensure easy and light opening and closing of the furniture. The combination of both solutions guarantees comfortable and safe everyday use

There are murphy beds that are locked. Some Smartebed bed models also have this solution. Such bed protection is not directly related to user safety. It is usually mounted on models that have more than one function. A bed in a wardrobe with a fold-out table, a bed in a wardrobe with a sofa are models that require first folding of a piece of furniture with a daily function. The key lock is intended to prevent its destruction by an absent-minded or forgetful user. Just in case.

Murphy bed for a child – where and how to choose?

Murpy bed is a great solution for a small children’s room. Among the “adult” murphy beds, if we are looking for a simple solution for a very small room for an older child or teenager, it is worth paying attention to the vertically retractable bed, such as the Smartbed V model. If the child’s room is narrow, then the bed will work best horizontally retractable in the closet, i.e. It is worth stating immediately that the modern wall wall has nothing to do with the predecessor of the previous system. Equipped with the latest solutions, it is convenient, reliable and easy to use every day. It is good if it has additional functions, a compact bookcase or a bed with a desk. This solution (Smartbed Single) allows you to save additional space and fits in even the smallest room. If we combine both functions (wall unit and desk), a piece of furniture will be created that will give the child the freedom to use the room in the living space. And during the night it will provide a comfortable rest (without having to do order on the desk before going to bed).

Bunk bed different

A separate solution for a small children’s room is a bunk bed. Eagerly chosen for siblings, despite the apparent space saving, it takes up a lot of space. That’s why we went further. And we created and patented a solution that really captures every free centimeter to use to play and enjoy the free space. It is a Smartbed Twin – a bunk bed … folding bed. Folded, this full-size bed takes only 40 cm deep. When it’s not needed, it just disappears on the wall. In addition, in the folded version it can be a homogeneous front or a bed with a desk. It all depends on the needs of small users and the space they have on a daily basis.

This is not the end of the questions we answer on a daily basis. Soon, answers to questions about the daily use of murphy bed, including “what to do with bedding”, “will it not fold with me” and a few words about the bed on the remote control …

Wall beds with sofa – two arrangements Smartbed V Sofa

Wall beds with a sofa give a lot of possibilities to arrange a small living room or bedroom. Thanks to the de facto double function of one piece of furniture, we can arrange a living room in the bedroom and a bedroom in the living room. Often, our customers are looking for hints and photos how they can adapt their wall bed  to the interior already furnished or to a newly arranged apartment. That is why today we suggest how to integrate a bed in a wardrobe with a sofa in both space.

Wall beds with a sofa in a new studio apartment

Yes, we know, photos from our projects are not always perfect. But this is because our beds in the wardrobe often stand in a raw, only finished interior. That was also the case here. A small apartment with limited space. No room for a separate bedroom. Therefore, the salon had to fulfill its function. Providing household members with a lot of living space and a comfortable place to sleep and rest. And because the living room itself was also not very large, every centimeter of space was to be maximized.

łóżko w szafie z garderobą

This is how the wall bed Smartbed V Sofa was built. In the subdued colors of the building, adapted to the interior, we have placed not only a 140 cm wide bed, but also a handy wardrobe. The ergonomically used wardrobe contained two pull-out clothes bars and a shelf for everyday items. Under it we mounted automatically pull-out drawers. The second part of the building consists of spacious upper cabinets and decorative shelves for books or knick knacks. Right next to the bed there was still space for two open small shelves – intended to put down the phone, book, tea cup. So during the day we have a living room with a sofa on the built-in wall, during the night a comfortable bedroom with wardrobe.

Wall beds with a sofa in a furnished living room

łóżko w szafie z sofą 160x200

Our today’s second example of arranging wall bed with a sofa was a project in which we were to match the bed to the already furnished living room and apartment. Again, the living room was not very big, but the existing arrangement fulfilled other functions. The only thing missing was a sofa with a bed function. We have integrated the Smartbed V Sofa with a width of 160 cm into the living room space so that it loses as little space as possible during the day, and at night not only ensures comfortable rest, but also free movement around the room.

łozka w szafie z sofą

Smartbed V Sofa is one of the most-bought Transforms bed models. Thanks to the specificity of the sofa, you don’t need to change anything in the room when unfolding the bed. The sofa does not require removing pillows or moving its elements. It disappears under the front of the bed, and its backrests form a natural mattress frame. Thanks to the mechanism with gas servomotors, opening and closing the bed not only takes a few seconds, but is easy and does not require any force. The sofa itself can be finished with any upholstery, it can have a one-piece seat or a split seat. We also implement custom sofa forms for individual orders. There is one condition – it must break properly under the front of the bed.

Folding table and folding bed in one? – Smartbed Sprint!

stół rozkładany łóżko w szafie

Folding table and folding bed in one furniture? Yes it is possible! A comfortable folding table and a comfortable folding bed, in one furniture and in a small room. This is Smartbed Sprint! How does this solution work? Who would we recommend such a bed to? We answer:

Smartbed Sprint – how does folding bed with a table function work?

Our solution is based on the most popular Transforms folding bed, the Smartbed V. The smooth front of the bed is ideal for creating new multifunctional solutions. A comfortable 900×1720 Sprint folding table has been placed on its surface. The table folds quickly and easily when you want to open the bed. It can also remain in the folded position when we want a larger living space. After a meal, work, with a few moves it is hung on the front of the bed, waiting for its time and not cluttering the room unnecessarily. And thanks to the well-chosen colors of the front and the top, it can remain either invisible or become a complementary element to the interior design.

If you look closely at the picture, you will notice that a lock is mounted on the front. This is a standard protection in beds in a wardrobe with multifunctional modules. What does it protect against? No, this is not a protection against sudden opening of the bed. Thanks to the construction of gas cylinders and resistors, Smartbed folding bed cannot open by itself. Locking on the key prevents situations when the absent-minded user will want to open the bed, forgetting to fold in advance, in this case the table. It protects against breaking it under the weight of the bed hidden in the wall.

Fold-out table and folding bed in one furniture – where will it work best?

Small rooms and flats are still our everyday life. The main reason to complain about them is of course limited space. However, their definite advantage is coziness. It depends on us whether we will use every free centimeter of space as ergonomically as possible and create a comfortable space for every household member. With all expected functionalities in day and night space. Multifunctional furniture such as Smartbed Sprint can come to the rescue.

The fold-out table is great for everyday work at the computer, but also for everyday meals spent in a family circle. A comfortable bed with a comfortable mattress can be an alternative to a sofa bed for guests – it takes up less space and is definitely more comfortable. It can also be a bed for “nightly” use, standing in the “open space” type, which is also a living room, work space and bedroom. Therefore, the choice of this bed is recommended especially to owners of studios, first small apartments, space lovers and “smart” solutions. It is also an ideal idea for arranging a small bedroom or bedroom alcove, which is also a library, a wardrobe and a studio. Just like the pictures from our implementation of Smartbed Sprint presented in this article. Look, so much functionality in one room and so much space every day!

The most striking element of the wallbed in the version with a sofa is, of course, the latter in everyday use. That is why we try to make it the most decorative and eye-catching element of our projects and arrangements. The advantages of a wallbed can only be seen after unfolding, it remains invisible in everyday life. Therefore, the sofa is the most-seen and viewed element of the whole composition. When choosing fabrics, we have several dozen versions of upholstery: plain, patterned, classic and modern. Following the needs and expectations of our clients, we have expanded our upholstery offer with fabrics designed by Atelier by Maciej Zień. In the photos attached here you can see one of his fabrics up close, but we offer 8 types of upholstery signed with the designer’s name.

Wallbed with a sofa – new built-in possibilities

Wallbed is a graceful piece of furniture for creating various arrangements. Thanks to the possibility of building the bed with any types of shelves, we can design and create a different and unique piece of furniture each time. Until now, the most frequently chosen were: buildings with wardrobe, with cabinets for everyday use and openwork book shelves. Recently, we have been proposing a new type of building: glass windows. The transparency of the glass gives the building lightness and discreet elegance. Regardless of what will ultimately stand on the glass shelves: books, decorative trinkets, porcelain collection or photos, their value can be emphasized by deciding to highlight the sites. It is also up to the customer to choose whether the site will be open or opt for a glass door. The colors of the website case are free so you can blend them with any dream arrangement.

Arrangement of a very small bedroom with a folding bed

When designing an apartment, we often face the problem of arranging a small bedroom. Sometimes extremely small. How to use this small space, e.g. a 2×2 room to get a comfortable room for a night’s rest? Our advise:

 

Łóżko w szafie aranżacja małej sypialni

Arranging a very small bedroom – possibilities

Sleep is the basic need of every human being. We need space, peace, intimacy for it – only then it brings the expected results: regeneration, strength and well-being. That is why, regardless of our size, we strive for a comfortable sleeping space. So what if we have an extremely small bedroom to arrange? And it’s not even a separate room, but a niche in the living room?

In such a small space found will certainly fit a stationary double bed. But it will fill almost every centimeter of the surface. And this will in fact end the arrangement. A large, optically heavy piece of furniture will not leave room for anything. We will get more space by choosing a sofa bed with sleeping function. But is this a convenient solution? Daily opening and closing of the sofa, storing bedding … And the mattress. Tailored to the needs of the sofa, i.e. thin and flexible. But is it really adapted to the needs of our spine? And what if you think about a solution that will provide us with comfort and convenience at night, and save space during the day and add space to our small bedroom?

Folding bed in a small bedroom – how can you do it?

 

Well, folding bed is a piece of furniture created just to solve the problem of arranging a small bedroom. How much can it disappear in the daytime space and how much space do we gain during the day, we present in pictures from one of our recent implementations.

The existing space is small. A classic bed would fill it whole. By using the folding bed opened vertically, in the living space we recover the whole area of ​​this room. For an additional “camouflage” effect, the bed was fitted into a recess completed with plasterboard buildings. The white front has been delicately curved around the corners and in combination with the gray border the bed in this edition looks like a storage box? Wardrobe? Maybe an unusually opened wardrobe? Certainly perfectly integrated into the style and color of the room.

Thanks to this solution, we gain many amenities: we sleep on a full-fledged bed, we have access to the mattress from all sides, we can close the bed together with bedding and save time – opening the bed takes only a few seconds. And how valuable every second in the morning is, we all know. The answer to the question whether the use of folding bed opened vertically in this space was beneficial for us is obvious. And for you?

Folding bed 160×200 for high gloss

The bed in the closet 160×200 is the size that is most popular among our customers. And although statistics show that the most popular Poles bed is 140×200, it is different in the case of beds hidden in the wardrobe. Why is “bed in a closet 160×200” so popular? What do we gain by choosing a bed hidden in the wardrobe? How to combine the comfort of sleeping function with decorative and functional functions? Today we will answer these questions showing the latest implementation of Smartbed V Sofa Box.

Retractable bed with 160×200 sofa – you can afford it

Multifunctional furniture has one basic task – to facilitate everyday life in difficult (usually small) area. Thanks to modern solutions, they adapt the existing space to our needs and make using them comfortable and convenient. This is also the case for retractable beds in the wardrobe, folding vertically … despite many names, each of them means the same functionality.

A traditional bed requires space and space. Unless we like to squeeze between the furniture every day and do not bother us every now and then sticking to the edges. A compromise between functionality and functionality in the Polish statistical area is a 140×200 bed. Hence its popularity. But you can do it differently. Giving up the traditional, small bedroom in favor of spaciousness, and without sacrificing sleep comfort or even increasing it? This option is given by the choice of a hidden bed. Our latest implementation is an example of this.

Arranging the bedroom in the living room allows for more

The retractable bed with a sofa as a conscious choice of the bedroom in the living room allows for everyday sleep in a larger than “statistical” bed. Since the open living room is assumed to be larger than the bedroom, it can easily fit into a 160×200 or 180 size bed or even 200×200. All you need to do is plan your room well and think about what other “daily” functions the bed should perform, and in return you get: comfortable sleep on a broad, high-class Sembella Amber Dream mattress and a multifunctional, decorative piece of furniture in the living space. Our latest project illustrates this. Transforms customers have adapted the bed to the living room by choosing a bed in the wardrobe with the function of a separate sofa, possible a separate sleeping furniture. The sofa has one more function. There is a spacious storage space under the seat, e.g. for bedding. The beds are decorative, illuminated, glass showcases. Which, together with the illuminated interior of the bed in both day and night space, create an atmosphere of coziness and intimacy.

Murphy bed in the office? Yes, from Transforms.

Recently, we wrote in what spaces our Smartbed Desk bed works. To mention that it goes not only to homes. That is why today a few words about how a folding bed works in commercial spaces. We will not only write about it, but also show. Thanks to our latest implementation: Smartbed V Sofa our retractable bed designed especially for the architectural office in Frankfurt.

A murphy bed for the office – and what for?

A murphy bed is a rational and functional solution for office spaces. It works in every small company that tends to work “after hours” – architectural studios, software mills, design offices. The opportunity to rest, when time and dates are chasing, will be appreciated by every employee who likes or has to work at night.

A retractable bed is also a convenient solution in companies whose employees operate in various places in the country and “fall” into the office once in a while. They are looking for accommodation as close to the company as possible. And thanks to the bed hidden in a wardrobe, standing e.g. in a conference room, the problem of accommodation is quickly and finally solved.

This is the function of the Smartbed V Sofa in a fully enclosed building, which was recently erected in an architectural studio in Frankfurt. Customer expectations were an interesting challenge for us. Bed in the closet to the conference room + very unusual building according to the author’s design + remote control of the bed.

Murphy bed for the remote control? – for whom?

The murphy bed for the remote control works when its everyday user is of small height, has limited mobility, is elderly or … is a person who values ​​comfort above average. The remote control mechanism is located in the back of the bed, with easy access to it (why it is important, about this in a moment) and discreetly – it remains invisible. The bed opens to the remote control, which means that it can happen by accidentally pressing a button when, for example, the remote control moves somewhere on the sofa. In order for the bed to not start to fall apart unexpectedly, special retarders were installed in its mechanism. There is time to react and find the pilot.

And what happens during a power failure? we hear this question very often. To avoid complications in such an uncomfortable situation, the remote control mechanism has built-in electric batteries that will allow the emergency closing or opening of the bed. Thanks to the easy access to the mechanism, the batteries can be changed quickly and efficiently.

The murphy bed for the office – details of the implementation

There are Transforms projects that are extremely close to us. Thanks to the unusual arrangement of space, colors, original ideas of customers. For the first time we were building a bed with buildings composed of cubic cabinets. In a variety of colors, each opened differently. With two types of fronts, mounted on or inside the housing. Cabinets give the impression of accidental “scattering” on the wall, however, creating a well-planned whole. The building ends with an asymmetrical, unusual opening cabinet ideally suited to the angle of the ceiling.

The whole is complemented by a quilted, intensely green sofa. And the bed. With backlight, remote control and comfortable Sembella Amber Dream mattress. Maximum use of space, multi-functionality and aesthetics. This is our view, this Frankfurt implementation.

What headboard for bed? Transforms suggestions

Which headboard for the folding bed is worth choosing? Or maybe it is not needed at all? After all, in a wall-mounted bed, it remains invisible most of the time … Today we present Smartbed headrests and explain why it is worth investing in a headrest.

Bed headrest – comfort

The headrest above all increases the comfort of using the bed. It is a soft backrest and support for backs and pillows. Thanks to their structure, the cushions do not slip, as is the case on the smooth surfaces of furniture boards, and after laying they stay in place for a long time. Even if the pillows “move” to other parts of the bed at night, our head touches the soft surface of the headrest, not the hard wall. Please look at the Wall headrest – the most popular headrest chosen for Smartbed beds. Comfortable and elegant. Mounted on the entire wall surface or in part of it. Isn’t it nice to lean on it?

If we choose a bed hidden horizontally, the presence of a headboard will make the person sleeping against the wall touch the warm texture of the fabric. Usually considered a “worse” place in bed, it will gain additional value:

Headboard for bed in the wardrobe – aesthetics

The headboard of the bed definitely increases its aesthetic value. Thanks to the rich colors and various types of stitching, an open bed with a headboard can well complement the style of the room. It can also be a colorful space that diversifies space. A colorful, contrasting spot that catches the eye. To illustrate this headrest function, we chose the Honey headrest and the Dream headrest. Original stitching allows you to play with the form or blend the headrest into the interior arrangement:

Headboard in bed – functionality

The folding bed is often placed in typical living spaces. In small apartments where there is no room for privacy, which is offered by a separate bedroom. Their task is, after opening the bed, to create an atmosphere of intimacy and coziness. Even the most beautiful back plate of the bed will not provide it. Additional elements creating an atmosphere of individuality and intimacy are soft, discreet lighting. Please look at our projects: Slim headrest and Triangolo headrest:

Bed headboard – originality

The headrest is an element that allows us to create our own original solutions. Nine sewing variants, several dozen types of fabrics and several dozen color versions. But it is not everything. If you have a headboard of your idea in mind, nothing prevents us from implementing it. We are open to suggestions and new challenges. The bed in the wardrobe is meant to be the dream one. Comfortable, functional, original. One of a kind.

Here is the Caro headrest with buttons, with an original idea for lighting:

Or the Pillow headrest, thanks to which lying on the bed even without bedding, during the day we will always lean on soft pillows:

Wallbed – a comfortable bed for two – Smartbed O Sofa

półkotapczan

Can a wall bed be a convenient bed for two? Definitely yes.

But for a comfortable double bed wallbed, the bed has been equipped with several basic features.

The ones that Smartbed O has (yes, we brag) – the bed opens horizontally with different mattress widths: 140/160/180.

What? Here are our insights on how to choose the best double wallbed for yourself.

łóżko w szafie

WALL BED – QUALITY

  • bed mechanism – this is what should first of all pay attention to when choosing a half-wall. The Smartbed O Sofa mechanism consists of: a steel frame reinforced with eccentrics, automatically opened, self-leveling legs and gas cylinders with the function of gentle falling and braking, facilitating the opening and closing of the bed. This design guarantees trouble-free use for many years – covered by Transforms 10-year warranty.
  • ease of use – the bed mechanism described above allows you to quickly change the interior from day to night or vice versa. Closing or opening the bed takes only a few seconds. In addition, to make the bed safe when closed, additional safeguards are installed to the mechanism to keep the bed upright (visible in the photo)
  • solidity – multifunctional beds that should work well in everyday and long-term functioning should be solidly built. It is by definition a heavy piece of furniture – therefore the bed casing must be strong and durable. The Smartbed O body is made of 36mm thick furniture board. The front of the bed is made of 18 mm board. These dimensions differ from standard solutions on the market. But they are a conscious choice. The durability and stability of the bed requires such solutions.

WALL BED – FUNCTIONALITY

  • functionality – wall beds not only save space, but also add an extra dimension to it. Smartbed Ogives you the choice – a simple front or an additional sofa function – depending on who needs what and for which room.
  • multitude of solutions – a wall wall for two can be a simple piece of furniture integrated into the existing space. It can also be designed with functional buildings.
  • comfort – for a comfortable bed spread out, and a really comfortable sleep, we recommend the Smartbed O Sembella Amber Dream mattress.

WALL BED – STYLE

  • stylistic diversity – thanks to dozens of variants of finishing, Smartbed O can be adapted to any style of the room
  • coziness – after opening the bed for two, its additional advantage is the softly padded wall with a headboard giving a sense of intimacy and comfort.
  • facilities – additional lighting, electrical sockets, USB ports – are now standard in Transforms.

Before you decide, check if the wall wall you found has these functions, facilities and mechanisms.

Unusual bedroom arrangement – Smartbed V

 

łóżko w szafie

The arrangement of the bedroom in a high altitude depends primarily on two categories: it concerns trends in interior design and space that are available.

Therefore, most often in our recent projects are monochrome or subdued beds in cabinets, where white, gray, beige are dominant. Thanks to the rich finishing palette that it offers, the number of shades of gray, anthracite, beige, brown allows you to personalize each project, which makes it an arrangement different from everyone else.

We usually also work in small spaces

this is the idea behind us – to make small interiors as functional and adjustable as possible. Space saving, multifunctionality and reliability – have become our mission. Beds in the wardrobe perfectly fit into current architectural trends, in which individual rooms often combine both day and night functions at the same time.

But there are projects absolutely different from everyone

Thanks to them, we can implement bold concepts of our clients and at the same time show how big color and stylistic possibilities we operate. This was the case when ordering custom-made furniture for two boys – fans of the Legia-Warsaw sports club. Smartbed Twin children’s beds with buildings in the colors of the sports club stood in the bedroom, which was dominated by three colors: white, green and red. Thanks to the rich Transfoms offer, they had an additional function – a bunk bed with a desk, with a worktop length sufficient to work and study two children.

Our recent implementation of Smartbed V also belongs to such bold, unusual projects.

What makes this project stand out?

First, it is a design for a large bedroom.

Secondly, the colors and style that will be remembered for a long time.

The colorful existing interior has been supplemented with a bed in a Smartbed V wardrobe with built-in wardrobe functions.

It has space for a spacious wardrobe, wide comfortable drawers and shelves.

But what distinguishes this design are the finishes, to which we used rarely selected cladding in the color of wood and … gold.

All this is integrated into the black housing.

The headboard of the bed in the wardrobe with upholstery style refers to the suspended ceiling in triangles and the wallpaper pattern on the walls.

The bedroom arrangement, as you can see, can be truly unique. And fulfill even the wildest dreams of who will be in it

used every day.

łóżko rozkładane

  • multifunctionality – bedding can be a wardrobe, a wall with a TV monitor, cabinets for everyday things or as in the picture – a library
  • convenience – there is no need to make the bed or laying the bedspread – within a few seconds the bed disappears and a comfortable sofa appears
  • maximum use of space – a spacious bedroom, where thanks to space saving, there will be space for additional furniture

Last but not least, our Transforms retractable beds just please. The possibility of personalizing the design and the form of the retractable bed themselves are gaining the sympathy and growing interest of customers. This was the case with our latest implementation: the Smartbed V Sofa bed with library furniture. And a shelf above the sofa, which when opening the bed safely hides under it along with what has been placed on it. Calm colors – gray – white – wood texture. Mechanisms with a 10 guarantee and a spacious, comfortable sofa. Only custom-made furniture has so many options.

Bunk beds not only for children – Smartbed Twins

bunk beds

folding bed

Bunk beds are bedroom beds that enjoy unchanging popularity. These are the most preferred beds for children, when siblings are to share a common room space. But why not go even further and opt for folding bunk beds? They have additional advantages that classic bunk beds lack.

Features of a good folding bunk bed horizontally retractable? Here they are:

Safety – both during sleep and during the day. Children love to jump, climb and roll on their beds. Smartbed Twins bunk beds have a system of comfortable, reliable barriers that fold together with the bed and guarantee freedom of movement and safety during use. In addition, both beds are based on solid steel frames reinforced with eccentrics – which guarantees that you can jump and play on them.

Ease of use – thanks to the mechanisms used with gas servomotors, opening and closing the beds is child’s play. Just raise the bed from below with one hand and it closes in just a few seconds. It is similar with opening. The beds, thanks to the retarders, open and close at a safe pace, and the mounted closing safeguards ensure that the bed does not fall suddenly on your head.

QUALITY AND RELIABILITY OF APPLIED MECHANISMS PROVIDES 10 YEARS WARRANTY OF USE.

Space saving – this is the undisputed advantage of folding bunk beds. Smartbed Twins can be used even in the narrowest and smallest bedrooms. During the day, just close them to gain a few meters of free space. But that’s not all. The classic version of Smartbed Twins, when closed, creates a smooth surface that blends harmoniously with the interior design and style.

The second solution is to use the Smartbed Single model at the bottom of the bed, i.e. a horizontally folding bed with a desk. The furniture top is the length of the bed so there is plenty of space to study and work. An additional advantage of the desk is that you can safely leave all your things on it before opening the bed. The desk folds under the bed. And all the textbooks, computer, notebooks will stay in their place.

Individual solutionsevery child is different and wants to emphasize it. Thanks to the wide range of colors and stylistic headboards, each of the beds can have a different character and be a cozy place to rest, different for everyone (example: photos below).

multifunctional design

After closing, if such are the expectations of users, the beds form a stylistically homogeneous whole. If the beds are also to be different in the daytime version, there is a possibility of any choice of front colors from among several dozen colors of the basic palette.

The Smartbed Twins bed has one more advantage: the possibility of freely installing bunk beds: wardrobe, library, cabinets for everyday items. Thanks to this Transforms furniture adapts to any space.

Folding bed as modern guest room?

A retractable single or double bed is usually presented as an excellent alternative to traditional small bedroom beds.

It is also a good solution for studios – then it successfully replaces the lack of a separate bedroom.

But mentioning its advantages and multifunctionality, it is often forgotten that more or less often, we host family, friends and acquaintances.

Sometimes an announcement, sometimes unexpectedly. And then the eternal question arises: “Where will I put her / his / theirs?

The time when there were guest rooms in our homes – bedrooms is long gone. Today’s interior design focuses on the functionality and usability of existing space, which means that it is not necessarily great.

We blow a mattress, foam pad, sofa in the living room is a common ad hoc solution. But is it comfortable?

Even the most comfortable folding sofa with sleeping function, placed in the living room, does not provide a bit of intimacy, so needed for a good sleep.

And in most modern space solutions, the living space is designed as a free “open space” connecting the living room with the dining room, kitchen and, often, the corridor. So sleeping “corner in the living room” is not very comfortable solution for both the guest and the household members creeping on their fingers.

The vertically folding bed perfectly solves all these problems:

  • takes up little space – guarantees space saving
  • closed – on a daily basis it does not change the functionality of the living room, work room or even the dining room
  • adapts to the interior – the possibility of choosing a different bed size and housing composes the bed hidden in the wardrobe into the space in any style
  • completes the functionality of the space – in a version with a comfortable sofa guarantees comfortable relaxation during the day
  • provides a sense of intimacy – open for sleeping, thanks to the soft headrest, internal lighting, creates a miniature bedroom
  • its arrangement additionally allows the creation of a space to rest even for a “multi-night” guest
  • hides “guest linens” in its interior, saving space in the wardrobe, storage compartments and cupboards
  • it is easy to use – it opens or closes in just a few seconds
    Please look at our latest implementation:

We have designed the Smartbed V Sofa bed for a multifunctional living space where there is space for work, rest and daily activities.

A partition wall (120 cm) was used to set it up. And one of its sides is a wardrobe with sliding, mirrored walls.

Both in the day and night versions, the retractable bed does not interfere with the use of the wardrobe. Nor cluttering up the space.

What’s more, thanks to the sofa function, it adds additional functionality to the room – a place to rest during the day.

If this is the will of the household, it can fulfill the function of an additional, everyday bedroom.

Without losing the daily character of the interior.

And when guests arrive, it will provide them with a comfortable sleep and rest.
