Hiddenbed™ Compared to Other Desk Beds - What's the Difference?
Updated: Jan 27, 2020
How is the Hiddenbed™ different from other space-saving bed and desk combos on the market? Good question! Basically, there are three kinds of "desk beds" on the market: the Hiddenbed™, various wall beds that have an attached desk, and a loft bed with a built-in desk area underneath. What sets the Hiddenbed apart from other kinds of desk-bed combos is their relative convenience and compactness.
The wall bed-and-desk combos are inconvenient because every time you want to use the bed, you need to remove everything from the desk and store them somewhere else. Before lowering the bed, the desk must be stored flat against the bed case. On the flip side, when you want to store the bed and use the desk, your desk items must be brought out of storage and placed back on the desk.
With the Hiddenbed, this is not necessary. Everything can stay on the desk at all times hooked up and even running if you want. Because of the ingenious mechanism that is used, the desk always remains flat, and it only takes seconds to transition from desk to bed and back. You can see a demonstration of this in the video below. This is our Studio Master Hiddenbed which is not only a desk and a bed, but it can also be used as a couch as you will see, and it has the book shelf unit above.
With reference to the bunk style bed and desk combo, these in a way are quite convenient since the desk does not need to be stored at all. The only inconvenience is climbing up and down the ladder in order to use the bed.
As far as compactness is concerned, there is not much difference between a wall bed-and-desk combo and a Hiddenbed–they both take up about the same floor space whether in the bed or desk position. However compared with the loft bed and desk combo, the Hiddenbed is significantly more compact. There is no loft bed above creating a kind of cage in which you sit when you use the desk. The multifunctional Hiddenbed combines both a bed and a desk in one easy-to-transition furniture that takes up less space.
Another one-up on the loft-bed-over-a-desk concept is the Double Decker Hiddenbed. Like a bunk bed, the Double Decker has both an upper and lower bed, but the lower bed is actually a Hiddenbed that can transition from bed to desk and back in seconds. It is this multifunctional capability that makes the Double Decker superior to both the traditional bunk bed and the loft-bed-over-a-desk concept.
