Wall beds are great furniture designed for guest room and office combo bedrooms or tiny bedroom spaces. They are innovative beds that are designed to be stored vertically against the wall when they are not in use, leaving extra floor room in the bedroom/living/office space.
Since their invention, wall beds have evolved into modern, stylish, multifunctional furniture pieces that easily fit in with any type of décor. They come in a plethora of heights, width and material depending on the design you want for your home. Wall beds come in two main designs, freestanding wall beds and wall mounted wall beds. Free standing wall beds do not need to be anchored into the wall while wall mounted ones are a bit complicated to install since they need to be anchored professionally. If you live in a rental apartment, a freestanding wall bed would be a better storage solution as it is a less permanent furniture piece.
