Wall Bed Questions Answered
How long will a wall bed last?
As long as you don’t let the grand kids jump all over your bed it should last a lifetime. Generally its the mattress that might need replacing most manufacturers say a mattress should last between 8 – 10 years but it really depends on how much use your mattress gets. The wall bed can be used daily and last a very long time.
Can I take my wall bed with me if I move house?
Your wall bed can be dismantled easily so yes you can take it with you if you move. You must be careful with the cabinetry or the surrounding book cases this might be a challenge do take out and the existing wall area may require finishing. The wall bed itself is easy to disassemble so you should have any problems taking the wall bed with you.
How does my wall bed attach to the wall?
This depends on the wall bed you choose. If you choose the Alpha Bed with cabinetry, the cabinetry attaches to the stud work within your home – the wall bed itself is obviously attached to the cabinetry. If you choose a wall bed without cabinetry such as the Next Bed this attaches to the skirting board or floor.
Is the wall bed a real bed or similar to a sofa or trundle bed?
Our Wall Beds are a proper bed that simply folds up. They are definitely not a wonky, uncomfortable sofa or trundle bed. These types of beds are temporary pieces of furniture whereas our wall beds are proper, permanent and comfortable and give you the same comfort as a stand alone bed. In some cases a better sleep as well.
Do I have to make the bed every time its use?
The wall bed comes with a strap the holds your bedding to the bed so you don’t have to keep remaking the bed. You simply make the bed, strap it up and then hide the bed in its cupboard. Very convenient.
