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…

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!

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:

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.

Bedroom to size and folding bed

When we dream of a bedroom to size, the Smartbed V Sofa Box folding bed is the perfect solution,.

Even in a several-meter interior designed for a night’s rest you can save a place, and even increase its functionality.

The most important is the layout of the space. Therefore, especially when arranging a small room, it is worth considering a design with furniture to size.

Then, every element necessary in the bedroom can be exactly adapted to each other and the room’s possibilities.

Usually, from the bedroom, we expect that there will be a place for a wardrobe, a bedside table, and of course a bed.

Most often double bed. This is the minimum necessary.

It would be great if there was still space to hide the bedding and place,

on which you can sit, for example during the morning dress.

Now, imagine that one piece of furniture is enough to meet all these expectations.

A piece of furniture that creates additional space in the living space.

How is this possible?

The folding bed with the Smartbed V Sofa Box is:

  • comfortable, fully functional double folding bed
  • wardrobe building that will accommodate clothing
  • fold-out comfortable sofa, which can be used freely after folding the bed
  • under the sofa (opening) there is a drawer for bedding

Ah, and there was to be a bedside table. Please look at the photos from our last implementation: it is!

Because the size of this bedroom is really small, it uses an interesting solution for the night table.

The SALICE shelf slides out of the closet and creates a place where you can put down your phone, book, cup of tea.

When it is not needed, it disappears in the building. And during the day it can be used as a small table for the sofa.

Yes, with this solution there is no place for a bedside lamp.

But it is not a need. Lighting the interior of the bed with LED lamps gives a warm, gentle, intimate light.

You can read, relax and talk with him.

Additional amenities of this project are:

  • USB sockets in the walls of the bed (shown in the pictures)
  • Push-pull doors that open after lightly pressing the cabinet’s wall
  • Amber Dream mattress – optimally adjusted for thickness, hardness and other parameters to the requirements of the vertical folding bed

Smartbed V Sofa – “made to measure” hidden beds

What we really like about designing and building hidden beds is the fact that each implementation is unique.

Our offer includes:

beds hidden vertically and horizontally
single and double beds
retractable beds with the function of a sofa, table, desk, shelves
swivel bed
bunk beds
So the number of solutions and choice options is seemingly limited. Nevertheless, it did not happen that we would realize two, even similar to each other, stylistically or coloristically, projects. Thanks to the wide selection of finishes: fronts, enclosures, upholstery, each bed is truly unique, just like its owner. An additional advantage is the possibility of housing the bed in accordance with the arrangement of the room, the needs of the user or already functioning in the selected room furniture.

Often, we also deviate from accepted standard designs, implementing very individual projects. Bent sofa backrests, designing the sofa according to the pattern and concept of the interior designer, shortening the shelves, installing the grilles, taking the place of the TV screen, etc., etc. The only thing that limits us is the parameters of the frame and bed mechanism and … imagination.

Please, take a look at our latest Warsaw realization. Smartbed V Sofa 140×200. Most often and most often bought bed hidden Transform.

Here, in pastel delicate colors, which corresponds very well with the current season. Full of light and brightness, the arrangement that gives lightness to the whole, quite powerful after all, and highlights the interior finish.

It is a project with buildings in the form of bookshelves, which stood in the living room and will have two separate functions, depending on the time of day and the needs of users. And the carefully prepared buildings blend in perfectly with the bed space.

Here are the details of our June implementation:

The color of the casing and bed: body and back SN K022 / front and edge PE 0540

Colors of the sofa and headboard: Piano 13

At the client’s request, we installed a LED lighting system under the library, placed under the shelves.
