metal bunk beds

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.

Here is an example of a wall unit with a fully recess bed, in a living room open to all interiors. As you can see in the pictures, the wall unit stood in a small apartment, whose main space combines day and night functions. Space without space for a separate bedroom, and yet thanks to the recess separating the living room from the hallway, it was possible to create an arrangement that will allow you to rest comfortably at any time. Both on the sofa and on the bed. Full wall installation saves additional space and makes the most of the recess space. Book shelves, drawers, storage compartments not necessarily used often, but needed at the top of the furniture. A characteristic element of the finish of this arrangement is the headrest, which occupies only 1/3 of the back surface of the bed. And last but not least, a shelf on the front of the bed, above the sofa. A great place to display decorations that are safely hidden when opening the bed underneath.

That a multifunctional solution can be a good idea for arranging a large space also, shows our last example. A spacious living room with full walls, in the form of a wardrobe. In the central part of the wall unit there is a sofa hiding a full-size bed every day. Symmetrical construction allows comfortable storage of clothes for each person using the bed. And shelves mounted at the height of the sofa in the evening and at night serve as bedside tables. Thanks to this solution, we don’t lose unnecessary centimeters or meters and keep the room spacious. Imagine how much space it would take to set up a traditional bed, sofa, wardrobe and chest of drawers!

Murphy bed: how to do, where to buy, what you need to know?

murphy bed sofa

Murphy bed – how, where, for whom, which, for how much? Which is what we are most often asked in via messenger conversations, emails and on social media forums. We suggest how to choose well and what to look for when buying a murphy bed. To enjoy a good choice for years. We invite you to read. Today, the first part of the questions and answers:

Murphy bed – types

On the furniture market, there are 3 basic variants of beds in the wardrobe – vertically and horizontally retractable bed (so-called half-wall), bunk bed. Each of them is designed to save as much space as possible. Which one to choose depends primarily on how much space we have. If the bed is to stand in a room with a full-height height – the deciding factor in choosing a model will be the comfort of use. A vertical wardrobe bed is better for adults and medium-tall. The horizontally retractable bed is the optimal choice for children, adolescents, the elderly or shorter. This bed, popularly called a half wall, is especially recommended in the attic and attics. They can be perfectly integrated into the bevel of the ceiling and places more difficult to access. It will also be great in very narrow rooms, where even after opening it will not block the passage.

It is worth knowing that each of these folding beds requires a specific space adapted to the depth of the furniture. For traditional models, this is 44 cm, and when choosing a swivel bed we need 60 cm. If we imagine that a full-size traditional bed would stand there all the time, then these expectations are small but necessary.

Murphy bed – how to make it?

Murphy bed is a multifunctional piece of furniture that, thanks to modern solutions, can be adapted to the needs and expectations of virtually anyone. That is why we offer several ways to “make” your bed. For people who are skilled in assembling furniture and have a limited budget, we have prepared and developed the category of self-assembly beds. The Smartbed V Young bed is the first model in the family, which will soon include models with a sofa, half-wall, bunk bed. Proven mechanism, simple illustrated step-by-step instruction, short delivery time, courier delivery. Efficient, economical and reliable.

The second category is retractable beds and multi-functional furniture, which we prepare for individual customer orders. Here the range of possibilities is much wider. You can order the bed only in the housing or built-in. Colors, style and types of finishes can be adapted to any arrangement of the place where it will stand. With this selection, you should take into account the longer lead time (from 4 to 6 weeks) and the assembly of the furniture by a team of specialists. However, be patient. After a few weeks of waiting, we can enjoy our dream and custom-designed bed – the only one of its kind.

What to look for when buying?

The answer is simple: for quality. Multifunctional furniture is furniture in constant motion. They open, close, slide out and hide thousands of times. Therefore, the quality of their performance is crucial for their comfort of use, safety and convenience. The offer of retractable beds on the furniture market is very large. Equally large are the differences in their prices. And they are not accidental. The bed in the wardrobe must be solid and stable. And this, unfortunately, must cost. A good bed in the wardrobe has a steel frame and steel legs. The heart of the furniture is the opening and closing mechanism. It should be reliable, supported by gas servomotors – for comfort of use ..

We have chosen Italian mechanisms for our murphy beds, the proof of which is the quality of the 10-year warranty. The housing is another important element of the bed. It must withstand the weight of the mattress, change the center of gravity of the furniture and the user or users. That is why, when constructing models of Smartbed beds, we chose a 36 mm thick board for the housing, and a 18 mm thick board for the front. Before you decide to buy, it’s worth checking what thickness parameters and technologies the bed has, which you like the most. And how many years warranty you will get for the mechanisms used.

murphy bed how

Where is the best place to buy a murphy bed?

In a company that has experience in building such beds. The best recommendation is satisfied customers, professional service that will answer every question in detail, long market presence. Poles buy furniture for years. And it is worth thinking carefully about your investment in a bed in a wardrobe. When deciding on such a piece of furniture, we want to sleep comfortably and safely. Do not worry if the bed falls on your head during the day, do not put any effort in opening it.

Be sure that after 2 years the bed will not fall apart. And if something happened despite everything, you can count on professional and quick service. It is good to be able to see such a bed in person before making a decision. And if we decide to buy online, see other implementations of the manufacturer. A well-chosen comfortable murphy bed is a guarantee of our rest, well-being and even health. There is no point in saving it.

Murphy beds with a smooth front – what to choose?

Murphy beds with a smooth front are the most classic and oldest murphy bed model. They cause the biggest surprise when they suddenly appear in the space of the room (“Is this the bed here?”.) And enjoy unchanging popularity. Transforms offer includes as many as 6 models of this type of beds: single, double, horizontally and vertically opening, and even a bunk bed. Today we present two models of Transforms beds: vertically opening Smartbed V and Smartbed IV.

Smartbed IV

Murphy beds with a smooth front – Smartbed V and Smartbed IV

A common feature of both beds, in addition to the vertical opening mechanism, is the smooth front. In the composite version they look almost identical. Why almost? About this in a moment. The front of the bed is a laminated board, the color of which can be selected from several dozen color and stylistic versions. Therefore, both beds can be adapted to any arrangement of the room. Each of these beds can be an independent piece of furniture (as it is in the pictures from our latest implementations) or you can integrate it into a fully enclosed wall. Then we get a uniform, smooth surface of the whole, in which it will be difficult to see the hidden bed.

Both beds also have several width variants in the double version; for mattresses 140/160 / 18cm wide and 200cm long. Each of them has the same depth of 40 centimeters. The same mechanism supporting the quick and easy opening and closing of the bed – gas cylinders. Also, the load capacity of the beds – 200 kg is the same. Where is the difference?

Smartbed V

Smartbed V and Smartbed IV murphy beds – the devil is in the details

The secret of the difference between the two models of murphy beds lies in their … legs. In the Smartbed V model, the legs are located on the long edge of the frame. They open and fold automatically when opening and closing the bed. In the Smartbed IV model, the legs are mounted on the shorter edge of the bed frame. When opening, they slide out of the contour of the faceplate, and when folded, they hide under its outline. The question is, does it matter? Yes, that’s a whole 4mm difference. Where do these 4 mm hide? This is the difference in the width of the gap between the front and the housing of the bed. Smartbed IV has a perfectly fitted front to the housing, in the Smartbed V the gap is slightly wider which can be seen clearly in the first photo. Does it matter in everyday use? No However, when we want to perfectly match the bed to the wall, choosing Smartbed IV, we will achieve an even better effect of “invisible” bed.

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!

Wallbed with a sofa by Maciej Zień – does that mean?

The most striking element of the wallbed in the version with a sofa is, of course, the latter in everyday use. That is why we try to make it the most decorative and eye-catching element of our projects and arrangements. The advantages of a wallbed can only be seen after unfolding, it remains invisible in everyday life. Therefore, the sofa is the most-seen and viewed element of the whole composition. When choosing fabrics, we have several dozen versions of upholstery: plain, patterned, classic and modern. Following the needs and expectations of our clients, we have expanded our upholstery offer with fabrics designed by Atelier by Maciej Zień. In the photos attached here you can see one of his fabrics up close, but we offer 8 types of upholstery signed with the designer’s name.

Wallbed with a sofa – new built-in possibilities

Wallbed is a graceful piece of furniture for creating various arrangements. Thanks to the possibility of building the bed with any types of shelves, we can design and create a different and unique piece of furniture each time. Until now, the most frequently chosen were: buildings with wardrobe, with cabinets for everyday use and openwork book shelves. Recently, we have been proposing a new type of building: glass windows. The transparency of the glass gives the building lightness and discreet elegance. Regardless of what will ultimately stand on the glass shelves: books, decorative trinkets, porcelain collection or photos, their value can be emphasized by deciding to highlight the sites. It is also up to the customer to choose whether the site will be open or opt for a glass door. The colors of the website case are free so you can blend them with any dream arrangement.

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.

półkotapczan łóżko w szafie

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.

łóżka chowane w szafie

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?”.

łóżko w szafie

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.

Arrangement of a very small bedroom with a folding bed

When designing an apartment, we often face the problem of arranging a small bedroom. Sometimes extremely small. How to use this small space, e.g. a 2×2 room to get a comfortable room for a night’s rest? Our advise:

 

Łóżko w szafie aranżacja małej sypialni

Arranging a very small bedroom – possibilities

Sleep is the basic need of every human being. We need space, peace, intimacy for it – only then it brings the expected results: regeneration, strength and well-being. That is why, regardless of our size, we strive for a comfortable sleeping space. So what if we have an extremely small bedroom to arrange? And it’s not even a separate room, but a niche in the living room?

In such a small space found will certainly fit a stationary double bed. But it will fill almost every centimeter of the surface. And this will in fact end the arrangement. A large, optically heavy piece of furniture will not leave room for anything. We will get more space by choosing a sofa bed with sleeping function. But is this a convenient solution? Daily opening and closing of the sofa, storing bedding … And the mattress. Tailored to the needs of the sofa, i.e. thin and flexible. But is it really adapted to the needs of our spine? And what if you think about a solution that will provide us with comfort and convenience at night, and save space during the day and add space to our small bedroom?

Folding bed in a small bedroom – how can you do it?

 

Well, folding bed is a piece of furniture created just to solve the problem of arranging a small bedroom. How much can it disappear in the daytime space and how much space do we gain during the day, we present in pictures from one of our recent implementations.

The existing space is small. A classic bed would fill it whole. By using the folding bed opened vertically, in the living space we recover the whole area of ​​this room. For an additional “camouflage” effect, the bed was fitted into a recess completed with plasterboard buildings. The white front has been delicately curved around the corners and in combination with the gray border the bed in this edition looks like a storage box? Wardrobe? Maybe an unusually opened wardrobe? Certainly perfectly integrated into the style and color of the room.

Thanks to this solution, we gain many amenities: we sleep on a full-fledged bed, we have access to the mattress from all sides, we can close the bed together with bedding and save time – opening the bed takes only a few seconds. And how valuable every second in the morning is, we all know. The answer to the question whether the use of folding bed opened vertically in this space was beneficial for us is obvious. And for you?

The bed in the closet 160×200 is the size that is most popular among our customers. And although statistics show that the most popular Poles bed is 140×200, it is different in the case of beds hidden in the wardrobe. Why is “bed in a closet 160×200” so popular? What do we gain by choosing a bed hidden in the wardrobe? How to combine the comfort of sleeping function with decorative and functional functions? Today we will answer these questions showing the latest implementation of Smartbed V Sofa Box.

Retractable bed with 160×200 sofa – you can afford it

Multifunctional furniture has one basic task – to facilitate everyday life in difficult (usually small) area. Thanks to modern solutions, they adapt the existing space to our needs and make using them comfortable and convenient. This is also the case for retractable beds in the wardrobe, folding vertically … despite many names, each of them means the same functionality.

A traditional bed requires space and space. Unless we like to squeeze between the furniture every day and do not bother us every now and then sticking to the edges. A compromise between functionality and functionality in the Polish statistical area is a 140×200 bed. Hence its popularity. But you can do it differently. Giving up the traditional, small bedroom in favor of spaciousness, and without sacrificing sleep comfort or even increasing it? This option is given by the choice of a hidden bed. Our latest implementation is an example of this.

Arranging the bedroom in the living room allows for more

The retractable bed with a sofa as a conscious choice of the bedroom in the living room allows for everyday sleep in a larger than “statistical” bed. Since the open living room is assumed to be larger than the bedroom, it can easily fit into a 160×200 or 180 size bed or even 200×200. All you need to do is plan your room well and think about what other “daily” functions the bed should perform, and in return you get: comfortable sleep on a broad, high-class Sembella Amber Dream mattress and a multifunctional, decorative piece of furniture in the living space. Our latest project illustrates this. Transforms customers have adapted the bed to the living room by choosing a bed in the wardrobe with the function of a separate sofa, possible a separate sleeping furniture. The sofa has one more function. There is a spacious storage space under the seat, e.g. for bedding. The beds are decorative, illuminated, glass showcases. Which, together with the illuminated interior of the bed in both day and night space, create an atmosphere of coziness and intimacy.

A murphy bed is a rational and functional solution for office spaces. It works in every small company that tends to work “after hours” – architectural studios, software mills, design offices. The opportunity to rest, when time and dates are chasing, will be appreciated by every employee who likes or has to work at night.

A retractable bed is also a convenient solution in companies whose employees operate in various places in the country and “fall” into the office once in a while. They are looking for accommodation as close to the company as possible. And thanks to the bed hidden in a wardrobe, standing e.g. in a conference room, the problem of accommodation is quickly and finally solved.

This is the function of the Smartbed V Sofa in a fully enclosed building, which was recently erected in an architectural studio in Frankfurt. Customer expectations were an interesting challenge for us. Bed in the closet to the conference room + very unusual building according to the author’s design + remote control of the bed.

Murphy bed for the remote control? – for whom?

The murphy bed for the remote control works when its everyday user is of small height, has limited mobility, is elderly or … is a person who values ​​comfort above average. The remote control mechanism is located in the back of the bed, with easy access to it (why it is important, about this in a moment) and discreetly – it remains invisible. The bed opens to the remote control, which means that it can happen by accidentally pressing a button when, for example, the remote control moves somewhere on the sofa. In order for the bed to not start to fall apart unexpectedly, special retarders were installed in its mechanism. There is time to react and find the pilot.

And what happens during a power failure? we hear this question very often. To avoid complications in such an uncomfortable situation, the remote control mechanism has built-in electric batteries that will allow the emergency closing or opening of the bed. Thanks to the easy access to the mechanism, the batteries can be changed quickly and efficiently.

The murphy bed for the office – details of the implementation

There are Transforms projects that are extremely close to us. Thanks to the unusual arrangement of space, colors, original ideas of customers. For the first time we were building a bed with buildings composed of cubic cabinets. In a variety of colors, each opened differently. With two types of fronts, mounted on or inside the housing. Cabinets give the impression of accidental “scattering” on the wall, however, creating a well-planned whole. The building ends with an asymmetrical, unusual opening cabinet ideally suited to the angle of the ceiling.

The whole is complemented by a quilted, intensely green sofa. And the bed. With backlight, remote control and comfortable Sembella Amber Dream mattress. Maximum use of space, multi-functionality and aesthetics. This is our view, this Frankfurt implementation.

A bed with a desk for adults? Smartbed Desk, of course

łóżko z biurkiem aranżacja małych mieszkań

We associate a bed with a desk primarily with children’s or youth rooms. It is a popular solution especially in rooms for children with a small area. But the small area also applies to modern living rooms, which are to simultaneously perform several functions: dining room, living room, work room, and sometimes the bedroom at the same time.

Where will a vertical bed fit with a desk function? How to arrange a wall bed in the living space? How to connect a folding bed vertically to the wall? Who is this solution recommended to? Today we will answer these questions by presenting our latest implementation of the Transforms’ folding bed.

Bed & desk – Smartbed Desk – for whom?

The original Transforms concept of connecting the bed in the closet with the desk was created primarily for people who work at home and are looking for a solution how to comfortably arrange their small apartment. A multifunctional piece of furniture, such as Smartbed Desk, gives you the opportunity to work freely and ensures sleep comfort in one space arrangement. That is why it is willingly ordered to the homes of people working online, as well as to the rooms of older youth and young adults.

Smartbed Desk is increasingly being chosen for premises for rent.

Rooms or flats for students to rent are usually small rooms in which every centimeter of free space counts. Folding wall bed with desk function allows for modern arrangement of student studios. And the quality of the housing and the installed mechanism for opening the bed guarantees trouble-free operation of such furniture for years.

The Transforms bed with desk is also an interesting and convenient solution for commercial premises. Small architectural and programming studios, design offices, i.e. wherever work lasts until night hours; there, the Smartbed Desk bed will do its job. Sometimes it is an office and guest bed. But we will write more about this solution soon …

Why is Smartbed Desk a bed for adults?

Smartbed Desk is a bed designed for adults for two reasons. First, it is a double bed designed for mattresses 140/160/180 cm wide. Due to such “adult” dimensions of the bed, a sufficiently long desk top is created, which guarantees convenience and comfort of use. Secondly, it is a vertically folded bed. So to use it really comfortable, you need a properly “adult” growth. Thinking about children and young people, Transforms has created Smartbed Single  – horizontally opened wall bed. This comfortable wallbed is child’s play simple and can be opened and closed even by the youngest.

Living room with a bed and desk function – space arrangement

When choosing a bed in a wardrobe with a desk, we have two options to choose from. An independent bed in a casing, which thanks to its universal style will fit into any existing or designed space. Or a bed with custom-made furnishings. This solution was chosen by our client, deciding to use the Smartbed Desk with fully built-up walls.

In the attached photos we can see a custom-made body with two functions. On the left side of the bed are symmetrical, traditional cabinets and shelves.

An interesting fact is the retractable table top (visible at the height of the desk top), which will act as a bedside table in the night arrangement of the bed.

To make the most of the space around the bed, an additional extension was installed above its casing (photo above).

On the right side of the bed, decorative buildings have been designed and installed. Recess sizes of different sizes are a good place to store books, knick knacks or decorative items.

In this photo you can also see the mysterious keys. It is nothing more than an additional protection of the bed. It is mounted in solutions with, among others desk or table. It prevents accidental opening of the bed before closing and possible destruction of the day furniture by a scattered, thoughtful or very tired user.

And one more thing: when opening the bed, there is no need to remove items left on the desk. The desk plate hides securely under the bed, storing everything we need to work the next 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:

Different headrest models can be viewed and selected in person in our showrooms: in the main Transforms showroom in Warsaw-Wesoła and in the showroom in Warsaw’s Domoteka.

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.
