Types of Folding Roll-Away Beds

Apartment dwellers or homeowners who have limited space may have difficulty providing comfortable accommodations for their visitors. A spare room or guest room is a luxury that many do not have, so the only option for their guests is to sleep in the living room or family room. Folding rollaway beds make it possible for guests to sleep in an actual bed rather than on an air bed or couch, and rollaway beds are made to be stored away without permanently sacrificing any of your personal living space.

Completely Portable Roll-Away Bed

The most common and traditional style of rollaway bed is a fairly simple structure that is easily folded, moved, and concealed in narrow areas for convenient storage and access when needed. A metal frame supports a spring platform that acts as a box spring without the bulkiness. The frame is hinged in the middle and folds upward in half with the mattress inside. The unit will accommodate most adults of average size. Because the unit has wheels, it can be easily rolled in or out for easy moving and storage.

Bravo Japanese Folding Bed

The Bravo brand folding rollaway bed is a product of Japan that comes in handy for overnight guests or even just relaxing at home. Much like a traditional lawn chair, the Bravo folding bed is able to recline or lie flat. A wheeled frame rests about a foot above the floor, and a twin-sized futon-style mattress is positioned over the frame for comfortable sitting or sleeping. By pulling upwards at the centre, the bed folds downward and is secured by a small chain for easy rollaway storage.

Folding Ottoman Guest Beds

For those who have extremely limited storage space, folding ottoman beds are an ideal way to disguise your guest bed while using it daily as a home furnishing. This type of folding bed acts as a foot rest placed in front of a chair or couch and then opens to become a single bed. A thick foam mattress is supported by a metal frame that is hinged in three sections for maximum space reduction. Covers are available in a variety of colours and fabrics to match the decor of your home.
