No Guest Room? No Problem with a Disappearing Cabinet Bed
Not everyone has an extra room they can dedicate as a room for overnight guests to stay. But even if you are short on square footage, there are ways you can utilize nearly any space as a guest room. We’ll show you how, using a versatile, disappearing cabinet bed.
Why a Disappearing Cabinet Bed is the Perfect Choice
When it comes to providing a bed for overnight guests, you have several choices: a sofa bed, a day bed or trundle bed, a blowup mattress, a cot or a cabinet bed. Out of all of the above, a cabinet bed is the only one that saves space during the day while opening up to a comfortable bed at night, complete with premium, trifold memory foam mattress.
A disappearing cabinet bed is housed in an all-hardwood cabinet finished in your choice of stain colors. It even includes a roomy storage drawer and space for a TV up to 60 inches along the top of the cabinet. In the closed position, it takes up a mere 10 square feet of floor space. It’s easy to see why a cabinet bed is the perfect choice for a guest room when you have very limited space in your home.
Transform a Shared Space into a Guestroom
When you simply don’t have room for a dedicated guest room, it is necessary for a cabinet bed to share space in a room dedicated to other purposes. Luckily, since the disappearing cabinet bed has such a small footprint, this is an easy fix.
For instance, in a room used as a library/office, a cabinet bed tucks neatly away into a corner or against a wall. It provides a convenient place to store a row of special books along the top of the cabinet. The roomy storage beneath is the perfect place to stow soft and fuzzy throws. If you wish to afford a bit of privacy to your overnight guests, use curtains attached to the ceiling that can be drawn around the bed at night and opened during the day.
A children’s playroom, bedroom or family game room is another place where a disappearing cabinet bed easily fits right in. The cabinet top is the perfect place for a television set. The bottom storage drawer would make an excellent spot to store board games, DVDs, stuffed animals or toys. When the kids have a sleepover, their guests are sure to love the queen-sized bed that folds out in seconds. But it’s also a great room for visiting relatives to spend the night, since they can close the door and enjoy a bit of privacy during their stay.
But if you don’t even have an extra room such as a home office, library or playroom, you could put a cabinet bed in your living room or family room. Tucked away against a wall or used as a short room divider, a cabinet bed blends inconspicuously with the rest of the furniture – in fact, you can choose from a variety of finishes, from dark to light, and choose from a set of two different knob styles. By day, the disappearing cabinet bed can hold a collection of pictures, books or decorations along the top of the cabinet. At night, simply move aside any items in front of the cabinet and pull down on the front to reveal the premium memory foam mattress.
Even if you don’t have a dedicated guest room, these ideas will help you create a comfortable and cozy space for overnight guests utilizing a disappearing cabinet bed.
