Not all homeowners can affordpresence of a guest bedroom. In such cases, relatives who arrived from afar and late friends are forced to stay for the night on sofas, folding beds or, more interestingly, on inflatable mattresses. Some of these objects look completely inappropriate and are unlikely to improve the hospitality of the house. The real way out of this situation is to install a lifting bed. Its main advantage is that, in general, it does not affect the appearance of the space as a whole and with equal success can fit into the interior of the living room, children's bedroom, study, and even the hallway. The concept of a lifting bed is not new, but many are hesitant to implement this idea due to uncertainty about the reliability of the design or fear of too high a cost. It is necessary to remember the main thing: the meaning of the acquisition of transformable furniture of any kind is to expand the functions of the space Today's lifting beds are not the same as they were a couple of decades ago. Now they are most often made to order, taking into account the style and parameters of the interior. Here is what you need to know about lifting beds. Project: installation of lifting or. Purpose: increase in free space or ensuring its multifunctionality. The most important feature of the lifting bed is that for its installation it will be necessary to increase from 30 to 50 centimeters of wall thickness in order to fit a mattress and a folding mechanism in the created niche. And taking into account this circumstance, it is necessary to understand where the legs of the bed will stand when it is lowered down. And one more thing: saving on building up the wall will inevitably lead to a decrease in the thickness of the mattress and, consequently, a decrease in the comfort of the bed. It is important to think through all the appointments of the room. Will it be a home office, playroom, multimedia area or room for yoga? You can always order a bed that will perform several functions due to the inclusion in its design of additional elements, for example, a small sofa or a desk. Customers of this project wanted to installlifting bed in the playroom. They did not need a separate guest bedroom. Designer Carey Bernstein designed the built-in section with spacious wardrobes and shelves for storing bed linen and toys. By the way, most people prefer to equip the space around the lifting bed in this way.
