Life in the big city can be challenging and rewarding in equal measure. As in most big cities, finding adequate living space in Washington, DC is one of the biggest challenges. Washingtonians have to be flexible and resourceful to make the best of their small apartments, and one of the ways they do it is by making spaces serve a variety of purposes. If you have a multipurpose room in your apartment and you have overnight guests often—or you would like to—you may be considering your options for accommodating them.
Before you make a decision, consider what you can do with a custom-made wall bed.
Make Your Apartment Bigger with a Custom-Made Wall Bed
Houseguests can be a mixed blessing. You’re happy to see them, but accommodating them may call for extreme measures. Can they sleep on the floor? Can you sleep on the floor? There must be a better way. One option is buying one of those awkward couches that weigh millions and millions of pounds and fold out into a bed. But not so fast! You can have an extra bed without buying extra furniture and giving up any daytime floor space by installing a custom-made wall bed.
That little extra space you gain from a wall bed may make a big difference in your apartment, but that’s only the beginning of its advantages. Let’s think about setting it up and putting it away. A wall bed slides easily up and down on concealed gas-filled struts and the feet automatically extend and retract at the same time. You don’t have to strain to make it work, and it doesn’t make a huge bang as it settles into place. Moreover, a high-quality wall bed’s tubular steel framework will be sturdy enough to stand up to decades of use.
A custom-made wall bed can be installed as a freestanding unit on your wall, with a variety of finishes to choose from to match the décor of your room. When the bed is up, it will take on the guise of an elegantly paneled section of wall.
A wall bed can also be integrated into a larger organization system. For that coordinated look, you can surround your wall bed with adjustable shelves or glass-fronted cabinets. You can even design an entertainment center for the room that will complement your wall bed. You may want to position them so that the entertainment can be enjoyed from the bed. Alternatively, if you would rather devote your multipurpose room to more serious pursuits, you can incorporate your wall bed into the plan for a home office or work area.
