Folding bed with a sofa – is this a good solution? In this post we will try to answer this question. We will present the advantages of a bed in a wardrobe with the function of a sofa, its features – on the example of our most popular model Smartbed V Sofa and we will present its latest implementation.

Recently, one of our posts asked the question: “Why choose a fold-out bed with a sofa, such as a Smartbed V Sofa, if the fold-out sofa with sleeping function does the same? Is it for sure?

FOLDING BED WITH A SOFA – A SOFA WITH A SLEEP FUNCTION

1. COMFORT – is a priority in the “bedroom furniture” category. And its quality is primarily determined by the mattress. Appropriate, modern design. The sofa with the sleeping function has a mattress that folds together with its folding. After a short time, the places of its folding deform, which affects the quality of sleep. In addition, to fit in the sofa casing, it must be thin and simple to build. Thanks to this, it is adapted to the needs of the sofa, but whether the user? Probably not.

Mattresses used to build folding beds are a “0 compromise”. Such is the mattress in the Smartbed V Sofa – Sembella Amber Dream. It has a 7-zone insert with multi-pocket “multipocket” springs – thanks to this it adapts optimally to the shape of the body. To increase comfort, each of the springs is covered with flexible foam. An additional advantage of the mattress is the cover made of anti-allergic material, which prevents mite and mold nesting.

Due to the specific structure of the bed in the wardrobe, the mattress remains unchanged throughout the entire life of the furniture and does not crumble or break.

10 years to use the mattress insert – it appeals to the imagination, right?

FOLDING BED IN WITH A SOFA IS THE CHOICE “I EXPECT MORE”

2. CONVENIENCE OF USE – The mattress in the bed in the wardrobe is placed on a traditional, uniform frame built of high quality materials. So, during sleep, nothing spreads under us, it doesn’t creak and it doesn’t “walk” with the change of position on the bed. Beds in the wardrobe are – 100% BEDS FOR BEDROOMS and more. Stable construction, gas cylinders, automatically folding legs – covered by 10 YEARS WARRANTY OF USE – it is not a choice “instead”, but a choice “I expect more”.

3. EASY TO USE – the sofa with sleeping function must be unfolded in several stages. Get rid of extra pillows, remove bedding for her from a separate container. This operation must be repeated daily and “nightly”. A bed in a closet, such as the Smartbed V Sofa, unfolds and folds in just a few seconds. And bedding – thanks to comfortable and quick-to-use straps, stays where it belongs – in bed.

4. MULTIFUNCTION – a sofa is just … a sofa. Folding bed is a 2-in-1 furniture. During the day, it provides a comfortable place to relax, at night it becomes a full-fledged bedroom, whose amenities can be expanded to include: a library building, a wardrobe, with spacious shelves, a place for musical equipment … Examples can be multiplied. At the customer’s request, we install additional lighting in the bed, classic electrical sockets or USB ports.

Thanks to these features, the bed in the wardrobe is not a compromise. It saves space, adds space to new functionalities, and enables the use of every inch of space. It can be used as a guest bed – that is, it fulfills the actual role of a sofa with sleeping function but Above ALL is a bed for EVERYDAY USE.

Can your sofa with sleeping function do it?

Folding bed with a sofa – the advantages


łóżko chowane w szafie

Folding bed with a sofa in the Transforms offer appears in two versions: Smartbed V Sofa and Smartbed V Sofa Box.

Today, a few words about the advantages of the latter option.

Smartbed V Sofa Box is distinguished by a sofa with additional functions:

1. Bedding container – located under the sofa seat. And although it is not necessary in the bed in the wardrobe (bedding easily fits in it folded to an upright position), it provides additional storage space not necessarily for bedding.

2. Pillows – two or more independent of the back of the sofa. They can be freely arranged on the sofa, adapting to your needs. In the arrangement of the bed, the beds will easily fit in the container for bedding or can be used as a headrest for the person using the bed.

3. Sofa length – in the Smartbed V Sofa Box version it is optional. It can have a bed width, it can be longer.

4. Placement of the sofa – the sofa can be placed symmetrically or asymmetrically.

5. Extra bed – because the Smartbed V Sofa Box version does not have to be attached to the front of the bed, in an emergency, after removing the cushions, it can act as an additional comfortable single bed.

6. The height of the bed – due to the specifics of the construction, it is a bed 15 cm higher than the Smartbed V Sofa bed – the bed is placed at a height of 40 centimeters. This solution may appeal to taller people or older people with limited mobility.

7. Opening and closing – a bed in a wardrobe with a sofa – is very simple and takes just a few seconds. Facilitation when opening are two hardly visible handles, which hide additional security against unexpected opening of the bed when using the sofa.

A good example of the functionality of Smartbed V Sofa Box is our latest implementation presented in the pictures.

For the Sembella Amber Dream mattress with a width of 160×200, a 50 cm longer sofa has been selected. Along with the armrest, the sofa is 225cm long, which its users will appreciate. Three pillows easily fit in a container for bedding or (as in the photo) will be an additional support for the bed. Subdued, modern colors create an elegant whole both in the day and night versions.

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.

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.

Details of implementation:

  • built-in dimensions – 3 modules – 160×200 bed module
  • Triangolo 1690x800H headrest, Aria New 08 fabric

  • additional elements: LED lighting strip and USB socket

This was appreciated by many of our clients from all over Poland, choosing the Transforms furniture and leaving us the design and implementation of their bedroom.

A bed for a small bedroom
The most popular model of a folding bed for small bedrooms is Smartbed Classic, which is a classic bed hidden in a wardrobe:

In the form of a traditional two-door wardrobe, compact, taking up little space and at the same time offering the full functionality of a comfortable, modern bedroom.

Murphy beds for large rooms
However, more and more often our bedroom beds go to large, spacious rooms, where a place for a traditional, unfolded bed could be found. Why do our clients make such a choice? Here are our insights:

łóżko rozkładane

łóżka do sypialni

  • interior aesthetics – a wide range of colors and styles, allows you to create a unique arrangement of the room
  • 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.

Folding Party table – a kitchen piece of furniture other than all

stół rozkładany

stół rozkładany

Party folding table is a proposal especially attractive for small kitchen spaces. Where every centimeter counts, and kitchen furniture should be multifunctional and comfortable to use. The Party table has two functions:

compact shelf / countertop – which can be integrated into the kitchen or can be used as an independent wall-mounted shelf
comfortable, stable table for everyday meals – which can literally disappear in compact furniture of a small size
The presented table-shelf is a variant of the standard Transforms furniture – Party table-sideboards. Thanks to the system of modules, it can be adapted to the needs of users and have various forms: a chest of drawers or a free-hanging shelf 60/90/120 cm wide. Regardless of the option selected, the furniture retains the same high comfort of use and a modern, universal design. On one hand, it rests on the chest of drawers, on the other, on strong steel legs that guarantee stability. The mechanism is designed with comfort in mind – folding and unfolding the table is extremely easy and takes less than a minute.

Of course, the Party table shelf is not just a kitchen piece. This proposal will be great in any small interior: dining room, small living room or – acting as a desk – in a small room for work. It is also a proposal for the recently popular “open-space” rooms that perform many functions on a daily basis.

The rich color palette of the housing allows it to be integrated into virtually any arrangement style.

Space saving – maximum – we take care of every centimeter of additional free space.

The model presented in the pictures has dimensions of 60×60 and hung on the wall of a small kitchen.

 

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).

murphy bed

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.

What else Smartbed Twins is a patented design for horizontally folding bunk beds.

Smartbed Twins bed dimensions:

Standard dimension: 217 x 209 cm high

Mattress dimensions: 90 x 200 cm

Maximum weight supported by a single metal base: 150 kg

Bed housing:

Bed body – 36 mm thick furniture board

Front and back of the bed – 18 cm thick board.

The depth of the furniture: 40 cm

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.
