If you are looking at turning a second room into a bedroom but don't have the space to take away, you don't have to just add onto the house, as building a second room is just going to be incredibly expensive and is an unneeded expense. These top three space saving beds are a great feature as you don't have to lose the space when you want to add the additional bedroom. This way, when someone comes over to visit you don't have to bring out the inflatable mattress or have them sleep on the floor. You just need to pull out the bed from the wall and there is instantly a sleep area for them. These beds are far more comfortable than sleeper mattresses in a couch or love seat as these are actually full sized beds with full sized mattresses, all of which provide more support than what you'd receive from the inflatable mattresses or the sleeper mattresses.
If you have the space, then full over full is best because each child has more room, and sleepovers are easier to organize. In fact, a twin over full takes up much the same room as a full over full, and the Classics 4.0 version of the latter comes at 84" long, by 60" deep and 79" high. This is part of Universal's Smartstuff Youth collection, and is available in white or saddle brown wood. Optional underbed storage units are also available.
The mattress exterior is called ticking. Visually it is really not too important to select a "pretty" mattress as it will be covered most of the time. Instead you want to make sure the ticking is sturdy and well made and not prone to ripping. The higher quality ticking is made of material that is knitted or woven using cotton or viscose yarn. Cheaper mattresses are made of polypropylene or polyester. The cheapest mattresses are made of stitchbond or bonded cloth. Manufacturers now make external mattress covers with special features such as anti-allergy, anti-bacterial and anti-static. They may be resistant to staining, water and fire. Amazingly enough, there are even mattresses that give off different scents conducive to a good night's sleep.
Loft Bed -- a loft bed is any bed raised off the ground high enough so that the space underneath can be utilized in a productive manner. Loft beds are especially appreciated for their versatility, since this empty space can be put to use in a myriad of ways: for example, enclosing the area underneath the bed with a tent or a curtain with windows will create a fabulous play space, which will certainly be appreciated by younger children. On the other hand, if space is limited and there are storage issues present, placing a drawer chest underneath the bed will probably come as a higher priority. For school age children a study desk may be the most pressing need, or perhaps some sort of storage/study combination -- many manufacturers offer integrated solutions designed specifically for just such situations. Finally, there is always a possibility to put another bed in there -- the difference here as compared to a bunk bed is, this bed can be added later on as a need arises, and it can also be removed or dislocated, put in another room if necessary. The downside is, the lower bed needs to be placed in a perpendicular fashion related to the main bed, which takes up a bit more space.
Wall beds, also known as Murphy wall beds are cut into a wall and are able to fold up into the wall when not in use. These beds can range from double sized beds to full king sized beds. There really is no limit to the size of bed you are able to have installed into a wall, although the wall does need to be thick enough to have a section of it removed, otherwise it is not possible to have the bed folded up into it.
