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 …
