Why Hideway Beds are Becoming Popular

The hideway bed is nothing new. It has been used in smaller spaces for a long time, such as in travel carriages and so on. However, they were not always the most comfortable with slim mattresses not providing the support that we crave from. The unfolding mechanism of older style hideway bed can also be heavy and unwieldy. But modern foldaway beds are very different but what are the pros of hideway beds? Why are they becoming popular?

Foldaway Bed

What is a foldaway or hideway bed?

We are accustomed to beds being large pieces of furniture in a room. But a foldaway bed is one that when you wake in the morning, you simply fold into the wall space behind it. Other hideway beds have sliding door mechanisms. And when you need the bed again, you simply drop it down.

There are many reasons why they are a fantastic investment;

  • Lightweight and secure

Older style foldaway beds tended to be heavy and clunky. Not only that, the lack of storage space also meant that the mattress was thin and not the most comfortable. Modern materials and build technology mean that this is no longer case. Without compromising on robustness and quality, modern foldaway beds are lightweight and much easier to handle.

  • Mattress comfort

These beds no longer rely on thin mattresses. It is now possible to buy an ‘ordinary’ mattress that provides the comfort needed, perfect for when the bed is in frequent use.

  • Perfect for the guest bedroom and/or small bedrooms

If you want to add an extra bed to welcome the occasional overnight guest but are stuck for room, a foldaway bed is an ideal solution. They aren’t just for the small bedroom either as they can be accommodated in any room. With the cabinet doors closed, it looks just like a cupboard!

Clearly, the biggest advantage of the bed folding away is the space it allows when the bed is not in use. For smaller bedrooms or areas, this is perfect when space is at a premium.

  • Multifunctional space

When something can be hidden away when not in use it allows for the space to have more functions. A room can be a play area or study during the day for example, but when there is a need for an occasional bed, simply unfold it.

  • Contemporary, simple design

If you like the sleek look of contemporary and simple design, you’ll love the options open to you regarding cabinet doors and sliding doors for these kinds of beds.

  • All sizes

These beds are available in single and double bed sizes, depending on the mechanism and structure you opt for. But without a doubt, the versatility of hideway beds makes them the popular choice they have become.
