Frightfully Good Reasons to Add a Wall Bed with Storage

Category: Wall Beds

In the spirit of the season, we thought it appropriate to give you several reasons why adding a wall bed with storage to your home’s extra bedroom is a frightfully good idea. Here you go!

Corral Those Chaotic Craft Supplies

Do you enjoy painting, scrapbooking, sewing, embroidery, crochet or creating decorative objects for your home? Craft hobbies take up quite a bit of space, between the area necessary for putting your creation together, accumulated supplies and tools of the trade. Chances are, even if you have a room dedicated to your crafts, the associated items take up a lot of space.

Why not turn your craft room into a guestroom, too? With a wall bed and custom storage pieces, it’s a breeze to corral all your supplies for a neat and tidy look plus create a cozy space for overnight guests. The best storage piers for your wall bed might include a wardrobe, drawers with dividers, cubbies for fabric and roomy cabinets to stow papers. Add a desk to the front of the cabinet for a clear workspace that folds away when not in use.

Organize an Unruly Office

Do you have an extra bedroom that does double duty as a home office? A well-equipped office usually incorporates a desk, filing cabinets, bookshelves and a place for a laptop, printer and other computer peripherals.

Instead of spreading all those supplies and pieces of equipment throughout the room, why not add a wall bed with storage? You will still provide a comfortable bed for overnight guests and organize all your office items. We suggest a wall bed with a desk along the front of the cabinet and side piers that incorporate bookshelves, filing cabinets, a printer shelf and perhaps a cupboard to stow bulky items out of sight. Be sure to add puck lights for task lighting and USB/power outlets that make plugging in easy and convenient.

Exercise Restraint

When planning out your ideal workout room, you probably want to ensure that you have adequate space to sprawl out with yoga mats, exercise balls, free weights and machines. Mirrors lining at least one wall and perhaps even a barre may be part of your “want” list.

But how about adding a wall bed with storage to keep all your exercise equipment organized in a spare bedroom that serves double duty? In addition to an ample-sized (up to king) wall bed in a handsome, all hardwood cabinet, consider adding side piers that incorporate organization: a wardrobe for workout clothing, a cupboard for towels, a drawer for exercise bands, cubbies for mats and maybe even a built-in refrigerator to keep bottles of water chilled.

We hope these three frightfully good reasons for adding a wall bed with storage to your extra bedroom make sense for getting your home more organized and clutter-free.
