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.

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 …

Bunk bed for children & murphy bed in one – Smartbed Twin

Smartbed Twin children’s bunk bed. Seeing them at first in the open position you think: just a bunk bed. Metal, has a lot of protection, looks solid. But when you see them for the first time in the second function, you can just … not notice.

Bunk bed for children & murphy bed in one – solution for a small room

A shared room for siblings is a space that is usually difficult to arrange. In addition, even the most loving siblings need space only for themselves – their kingdom. Each of its inhabitants is after all an individuality, often of different ages and with different needs. It is also a room that is both a place to play, learn, receive guests, and relax at night. Many functions, two inhabitants, many needs to be met. Therefore, when designing such a room, it is often decided to buy a bunk bed. It saves space, using the same floor space as the floor and the “head”. And he gives each child a place for their own intimate corner, which in this case is the bed. Can you expect even more? You can. For demanding small residents, and above all to create as much everyday space as possible in the room, Transforms has created and patented the Smartbed Twin heel bed.

Smartbed Twin – a bunk bed for children & murphy bed in one

After closing the beds, the Smartbed Twin simply disappears in a wardrobe with a depth of only 40 centimeters. But that’s not all. By choosing the Smartbed Twin you can opt for a bunk bed only in an enclosure. You can also order them with any construction: shelves, multifunctional cabinets, windows.

You get a comfortable place to study with a table top almost 200cm long. Which for the night disappears under the bed and does not require cleaning left behind on the countertop. Clutter on the desk is often commonplace in a children’s room. Just like the view of an unmade bed.

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.

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.

meble na wymiar

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
  • Amber Dream 160×200 H3 mattress
  • additional elements: LED lighting strip and USB socket

Bed wall – Smartbed O or Smartbed Single?

Wallbed is a universal solution for small rooms. In a modern version – thanks to the latest technologies – it guarantees comfort of use for many, many years. How to choose the best type of fold-out bed for your needs?

In the Transforms offer, due to the diverse expectations of customers, we offer 2 types of only seemingly similar beds. These are the Smartbed O and Smartbed Single models.

Smartbed O and Smartbed Single – similarities of the wallbeds

  • each bed can be used in the Smartbed Twins bunk bed as the bottom bed

Smartbed O and Smartbed Single – differences in horizontally retractable beds

  • The single bed has an additional function – desks – therefore it is ideal as a children’s or youth bed
  • Smartbed Single is a single bed, for a 90/100/120 mattress, and Smartbed O can be both a single and double bed. In addition to the sizes of the Single version, it is available for mattresses with a width of 140/160/180
  • In each of the beds different opening systems are used: in the Smartbed Single there is a lock that, when released, causes the bed to fall slowly. The Smartbed O uses a system of handles to facilitate opening the bed

Who is Smartbed Single for?

  • bed recommended as a children’s bed or for a teenager: it has a comfortable, spacious desk that, when unfolding the bed, hides underneath. An additional advantage is that it does not require cleaning the items left on it.
  • for the safety of children, it has special motion retarders – the bed needs to be lightly pressed down to fully unfold
  • maximum strength of the bed frame – 150 kg
  • desk top strength – 15 kg

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.
