Horizontal Wall Beds Take Up Less Room

I think everyone understands the concept of regaining valuable floor space by installing a wall bed. This is so what little room you do have is not wasted by a clumpy bed taking up the whole room.

With a horizontal bed you can actually save on space when the bed is folded out. Here’s how this works. A normal queens size bed and a wall bed are usually two metres long and about wide so the bed sticks out by two metres. Often, in a smaller room this makes it a challenge to walk around the bed.

With a horizontal wall bed it opens up the other way so you only have 1500mm of wall bed to contend with. Horizontal wall beds are great for smaller spaces because they give you an extra half a metre of space.

Another win with a horizontal wall bed is the height is about 1500mm and gives you a useable shelf that isn’t so high it can’t be used. The horizontal wall bed enclosure sticks out from the wall about 400mm (most wall beds do this, horizontal or vertical) giving you a decent shelf (400mm x 1500mm).

As I have mentioned in previous blogs this type of wall bed can be used in smaller rooms but also in hall ways and rooms with low ceilings.

Bed Size Guide

Here’s a bed size guide:

Single    92 x 188 cm 3’0″ x 6’2″
Double  138 x 188 cm 4’6″ x 6’2″
Queen   153 x 203 cm 5’0″ x 6’8″

The horizontal wall bed is a great solution if you are really struggling with space and comes in all sorts of different finishes to match your existing decor.

For commercial applications horizontal wall beds can be installed in hotels as additional beds in a room, in hospitals as overnight beds for visitors or for carers who look after clients temporarily or permanently.

Two More Ways We Can Help Save Space

As you can ascertain we do wall beds and wall beds are an excellent way of saving space in your apartment or home. BUT there are two other ways we can help you save space thats with room dividers or sliding doors and walk in wardrobes.

Saving or Gaining Room Space

We may appear to be separate entities but founder and owner Leigh Robinson has brought together Wall Beds R Us, Wardrobe Systems and Room Dividers R Us under the banner Indeco Australasia. That may seem a bit confusing but the tie in is space saving.

Leigh Robinson explains

“That often when people are looking to renovate they are concerned about using the available space they have in their home efficiently. Many times we are quoting on a wall bed and the owner needs a sliding door installed or a walk in wardrobe. If they are installed at the same time or shelving is manufactured together then there is a saving in cost and space solutions are solved quicker.

The same thing happens with a new build. If we can get in early is super convenient for the home owner and they can nail two (or three) birds with one install.

If we can find ways that suit our installers we can save time and money for the client.”

Building or Renovating?

As with shelving for the wall beds the walk in wardrobes are customised to suit the space you have. The room dividers are also custom made to suit your decor and room size. It’s quite rare to find this kind of space saving convenience with bespoke offerings.

If you are renovating or building then get in contact with Leigh as soon as you can in case the building work affects installation. Or if you need a wall bed, or walk in wardrobe or room divider then contact Leigh for a free measure and quote and a ton of advice.
