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.

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:

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

Smartbed V Sofa – “made to measure” hidden beds

What we really like about designing and building hidden beds is the fact that each implementation is unique.

Our offer includes:

beds hidden vertically and horizontally
single and double beds
retractable beds with the function of a sofa, table, desk, shelves
swivel bed
bunk beds
So the number of solutions and choice options is seemingly limited. Nevertheless, it did not happen that we would realize two, even similar to each other, stylistically or coloristically, projects. Thanks to the wide selection of finishes: fronts, enclosures, upholstery, each bed is truly unique, just like its owner. An additional advantage is the possibility of housing the bed in accordance with the arrangement of the room, the needs of the user or already functioning in the selected room furniture.

Often, we also deviate from accepted standard designs, implementing very individual projects. Bent sofa backrests, designing the sofa according to the pattern and concept of the interior designer, shortening the shelves, installing the grilles, taking the place of the TV screen, etc., etc. The only thing that limits us is the parameters of the frame and bed mechanism and … imagination.

Please, take a look at our latest Warsaw realization. Smartbed V Sofa 140×200. Most often and most often bought bed hidden Transform.

Here, in pastel delicate colors, which corresponds very well with the current season. Full of light and brightness, the arrangement that gives lightness to the whole, quite powerful after all, and highlights the interior finish.

It is a project with buildings in the form of bookshelves, which stood in the living room and will have two separate functions, depending on the time of day and the needs of users. And the carefully prepared buildings blend in perfectly with the bed space.

Here are the details of our June implementation:

The color of the casing and bed: body and back SN K022 / front and edge PE 0540

Colors of the sofa and headboard: Piano 13

At the client’s request, we installed a LED lighting system under the library, placed under the shelves.
