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 – 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.

Wall bed with a desk for a child – is this a good solution?

Wall bed with a desk – is this a good solution for a children’s room? A bunk bed with a desk or a wall mural with the same function? What do we gain by choosing one or the other? And what can we lose? Which option should you choose? Where’s the best solution? We invite you to read:

Bunk bed with desk – advantages and disadvantages

Usually, we associate a bed with a children’s desk with a bunk bed, under which there is a place for a desk, a place to play and even a place for a wardrobe. It is a commonly used solution for small children’s rooms, when we want to combine and maintain all the functionality of a children’s room in a small space. Thanks to this solution, we also have the option of arranging the room in an interesting and original way. In addition, children love to climb on the bed, which suspended above the ground gives them a sense of intimacy and their own “cave” in which you can hide from the world. But … What to consider when making such a choice:

  • our children grow from year to year and quite quickly the space under the bed used for daily activities becomes less and less comfortable. After a few years, we are forced to change the furniture in the room.
  • from the very beginning, the use of a desk hidden under the bed is associated with a lack of light for work, reading and studying. Usually additional artificial lighting is needed during the day.
  • when our children are small, it is our duty to keep the room clean. Cleaning with the head bowed or the back bent is not very comfortable, even for the most efficient parent. Changing bedding on the bunk bed is also a challenge. Either we will try to do it standing or we will do it remembering that we have a ceiling just above us.
  • a bunk bed with a desk and possibly other functions is a large, spacious piece of furniture that does NOT ONLY occupy space at the floor level, but also at the “head” level. On the one hand, it saves space, on the other it significantly reduces and optically reduces it.

Wall bed with a desk – advantages and disadvantages

A wall bed with a desk is not a new solution. Those who remember the Polish People’s Republic most probably used it throughout their childhood and youth. But today’s, modern version of this furniture with the infamous past, a wall unit connects only the name. Modern mechanisms covered by a 10-year guarantee of reliable work guarantee comfort, safety of use and easy opening of the bed every day. Even a small child can open this bed.

What else do we gain by choosing a baby wall bed?

  • a full-size bed and a full-size desk – this is a definite advantage of a single Smartbed bed for children. A solution without compromise. This bed and desk can serve both a small child and a teenager. The table top has the length of a bed and THERE IS NO NEED TO CLEAN THINGS when we want to change the arrangement from day to night.
  • children’s wall bed with a desk really saves space; when folded, the bed is only 40 centimeters deep; disappears from the living space, both from the floor level and the “head”.
  • choosing Smartbed Single with a desk we can design any arrangement, color and style of furniture. Dozens of housing colors, dozens of color versions of the headboard, a huge number of building options – these are the advantages of custom-made furniture.
  • a bed with a desk in a half-wall version can be placed in a room that is being designed or renovated or it can be integrated with an existing layout.
    An illustration of the advantages of this multifunctional furniture is our latest implementation – additional top and side furniture is a space that can replace a wardrobe, book shelves and toy cabinets in a small room. Whether it reaches half the wall or be built to the ceiling, as it will be set – depends only on our imagination and … wallet.
  • “Last but not least” – keeping furniture clean and changing bedding are not a problem for both children and adults.
