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.
