murphy bed how

Murphy bed – where to buy, how to mount, who can you recommend? Every day, we answer dozens of questions about multi-functional furniture. 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 …

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Swivel hidden bed? Smartbed Twist


 

Multifunctional furniture can be not only functional, comfortable, modern. They can also be surprising.

A bed hidden behind the sofa, a bed with the function of a desk, a bed hidden behind the wardrobe door. Yes, these are standard solutions.

But what to do when we dream of a room with bookshelves, a place for a TV set, cabinets in a bookcase, and a bedroom at the same time?

And the space of the room is, as it happens in modern apartments, limited?

Transforms also fulfills such wishes. Therefore, the Smartbed beds offer a rotating bed.

How it’s working?

Smartbed Twist is a modern solution based on a vertical rotary mechanism.

The first step to change the arrangement of space is to turn the rack wall in a vertical position. The shelves hide inside the furniture and appear on the front

a folding frame with a double bed. The second step is identical to the traditional solution of beds hidden in the closet. The frame is lowered to a horizontal position and the bed is ready for use.

The bed structure is based on the standard Transforms solutions:

self-leveling automatically opening legs guarantee the stability of the structure
Gas shock absorbers allow light and gentle opening and closing of the bed
The steel frame on which the whole is made ensures the durability of the furniture
a wooden frame made of beech strips supports the Sembella spring mattress-foam mattress that is optimal for retractable beds
The whole structure is combined with special eccentrics, which are covered, like the entire mechanism of the bed, a 10-year guarantee of trouble-free use.

The front of the bed can be designed in any form of a rack with elements:

bookcases
shelves for accessories or decorations
space for a TV screen
shelves or drawers with a silent closing function.
Stylistics of the furniture, thanks to a wide range of colors (several dozen versions in the standard option), gives almost unlimited space for arranging the furniture in any style and character.

Wall bed – what to do with bedding?

Wall bed, although  it is known and present on the market for years, raise questions.

In conversations with Clients, one of the most common questions that is asked is:

“What to do with bedding?”

There are two solutions:

  • when ordering a hide-and-seek bed with a couch option, you can choose one that has a storage space for bedding. The Transforms offer includes the Smartbed V Sofa Box model. In it, in the base of the sofa there is a large storage that can be used to hide bedding. But it is not really necessary. This space can be used to store other things.
    Why?
  • every bed hidden in the wardrobe from Transforms has a belt system in its standard equipment. They are placed in two places of the bed and serve just to hold the bedding. Their use is easy and comfortable. A small clasp placed on each of them allows you to quickly “stretch” the bed. Belts keep the bedding in place, and it takes a few seconds to unfasten them. Before sleeping, the belts can be hidden under the mattress. They remain invisible and imperceptible to the user. A nice addition is the fact that the color of the belts is matched to the color of the bed.

 

That’s how the problem with the quilt, the bedspread is solved. And what about pillows?

Pillows remain where we put them. When closing and opening the beds, they hide in the space between the headboard and the mattress, which effectively holds them and does not require them to be fastened.

The choice of bed type depends entirely on the client’s idea and needs. Lashing straps are installed in all Transforms bed models.

How the belt system looks like can be seen in the pictures from our latest implementation.

Here is the Smartbed V Sofa mattress 140×200, in soft pastel colors.

Details of implementation:

  • housing – Egger Len Beige ST10
  • front of the bed – Kronospan 8685 Snow White
  • edge handle – white
  • sofa – Claude 03 fabric

Full wall construction is a solution that optimally utilizes the small space in the room. Multifunctional cabinets, shalves and drawers in the wall bed are not only a convenient place to store clothes and other things necessary in everyday life, but thanks to the colors and high quality materials used, they create an interesting element of interior design.
