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…

Wall bed – how to do it right?

The wallbed is nothing but a bed hidden in the wardrobe horizontally. How to make a comfortable sleeping place for two, save space, arrange a bedroom or living room? We present how you can arrange a modern half-wall in any interior. There are two ways, the rest depends only on the imagination, the space we have, and above all what we ultimately want to achieve.

The first question we should answer is whether the selected bed-half-wall should be visible or not?

Method one – where is my wall bed?

półkotapczan w szafie

Built-in bed is a solution for interiors, which on a daily basis usually perform other functions than the bedroom. A wall mat for the living room will be perfect. It can literally disappear in the library wall, modern wall unit or in shelves. Thanks to the available over 50 different types of finishes, the bed can be integrated into the building so that it will create a stylistic whole. An additional way to hide it will be connecting it to the sofa. The bed in the wardrobe with a sofa is also available in a horizontal version – in the Transforms offer it is the Smartbed O Sofa version. Then when you open the sofa will disappear under the mattress and will not require moving the furniture.

półkotapczan dwuosobowy

This solution also works well in a narrow bedroom, in which we want to devote one wall to a custom-made wardrobe. This was the case in the implementation presented in the pictures. A small space where the client wanted to have both a wardrobe, a comfortable bed and as much as possible of the living space. Thanks to this solution, we can arrange a comfortable bedroom with all functionalities even in a 2-meter wide room. (!!!) The narrowest horizontally folding bed Smartbed O, i.e. a double bed is 157 cm wide (for a 140×200 mattress). The maximum width of the bed is 197cm and is adapted to a 180×200 mattress. In the case of a narrow room it is definitely a more convenient solution than the bed in the wardrobe closed vertically.

Method two – wallbed “in view”

Equally common as the first method of “disappearing” is the method of displaying the wall wall as a separate piece of furniture. Although the bed in the wardrobe is then a separate element of the room’s decor, it still saves space in the living space. It remains then to choose whether we need a wall wall only in a simple housing, or with additional buildings and functionalities, but of a different type than the full wall housing.

The horizontally retractable bed is small. So there is a lot of space on the wall to arrange it. It can be separate furniture, e.g. bookshelves. It is also a good place for a family photo collection. But usually we choose a bed in the wardrobe for the sake of saving space. So we try to use them optimally. Designing a wall wall with an additional extension with shelves and cabinets will solve the problem of “where to put a cabinet for clothes?”.

Where does this solution work? It is definitely a functional idea for a wallbed for children or teenagers. This solution will also work in the bedroom for two, which is already partially arranged and the bed we want to “recompose” to the existing space. It can also be the other way around – arranging a flat, we reduce furniture expenses to a minimum. When choosing a wall bed with an extension, we have a multifunctional piece of furniture, thanks to which further furnishing of the room can wait. And we have another saving.

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.

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.
