The Hiddenbed is the most elegant, unique, and economical space-saving solution that we have seen. If you are short on space, it is like adding another room to your home at a fraction of the cost. If you have a guest bedroom that you wish you could use for some other purpose than storing a bed used only occasionally, the Hiddenbed is the best solution we've seen. When the guests are not there, which is most of the time, you simply store the bed—it only takes seconds—and the desk/workspace immediately appears, with everything just as you left it. And, when you need to use the bed, there is no need to unplug anything or remove anything from the desk. Just gently pull the bed down and the desk drops down and underneath the bed where it is stored until it is needed again. So, it is like having two rooms in one, with one compact piece of furniture, the Hiddenbed, to make it all work! With Hiddenbed, you get a comfortable bed and great workspace in one piece of furniture rather than buying two pieces that would take up a lot more space.
The Hiddenbed Mechanism – an Ingenious Balancing Mechanism
What makes the Hiddenbed work is the ingenious, patented balancing mechanism. This mechanism incorporates some very sturdy metal pieces that include a trunnion pivot point, two gas filled struts, and some other smaller parts that keep the bed working smoothly and effortlessly for years of dependable service. It has been checked for durability in testing that cycled the mechanism and bed for over 10,000 times, the equivalent of about thirty years of use. With this balancing mechanism, you hardly feel the weight of the bed as you hide or un-hide it. Even a child can easily operate the Hiddenbed, as you can see in both the videos and the photos presented in our website.
About the Materials Used in Our Hiddenbeds
Samples of Our Most Popular Woods
Hardwood Plywood versus Melamine
Both hardwood plywood and Melamine are beautiful wood products, each with its own specific advantages. Hardwood plywood is lighter, more durable, and has a more natural look and feel than Melamine. Melamine's main advantage is that it is less expensive, however, the Melamine products that we use in our Hiddenbeds are very high quality and strikingly beautiful in their own right. The Melamine finish is a very durable “designed” print that is thermally bonded to a particleboard substrate. Both products are engineered to meet the strict emissions limitations established by the California Air Resource Board. (See note in FAQs)
Designed for Beauty and Elegance
We at Hiddenbed of Oregon take pride in providing not only a unique space-saving, multi-functional piece of furniture, but one one that will add beauty and elegance to your home. Our Hiddenbeds are constructed with either furniture grade hardwood plywood or pre-finished wood-grain Melamine. All our beds also incorporate fine hardwood edge-banding and solid hardwood trim pieces.
The basic option
Of the many species of wood available in both hardwood plywoods and melamine sheet goods, we have chosen Maple for our basic option. Maple is a light colored wood that is generally straight-grained with a fine, uniform, smooth texture that takes stain well and finishes beautifully. It is very strong and durable, and is also one of the more inexpensive hardwood plywoods and melamine sheet goods. These properties make it an excellent choice for our basic option, and the one that we will keep in stock, ready for assembly and installation in your home.
You can also order your hidden bed in any of a number of other species. Since these species vary in price, the cost of a Hiddenbed that incorporates these species will vary according to the added cost of the specific sheet goods used.
Our Finishing process
At Hiddenbed of Oregon we take great care to ensure that your Hiddenbed will have an attractive and durable finish. Our Melamine beds require very little finishing since Melamine is a pre-finished material. For our wooden beds, The finishing process is outlined below:
- After the parts are milled and inspected for quality, all surfaces are sanded to achieve a fine furniture feel, and all dust is carefully removed.
- If the Hiddenbed is to be stained, we then hand apply a deep penetrating stain that is allowed to air dry. Our high quality stains bring out the highlights in the wood and add richness to the finish.
- A specially formulated, pre-catalyzed sanding sealer is pressure applied, preparing the surface for the final finish.
- Once the sanding sealer is dry, all surfaces are lightly hand sanded and wiped clean.
- Up to three coats of pre-catalyzed lacquer are pressure applied to attain a handsome, durable satin or semi-gloss finish.
- Before every Hiddenbed is delivered and installed, it is again inspected to ensure that it meets our high quality standards
To the right are color swatches of different stain colors that are available for application to your Hiddenbed. If you wish to have your own special stain used, we will be happy to do so. Additionally, you may choose a clear stain which helps to bring out the highlights of the wood without adding color.
