The wall bed has become an increasingly popular piece of furniture in recent years. The functionality of the foldable bed is undisputed, but the piece of furniture also scores in the area of design. The clear lines of the wall beds make them look more like wall decorations. Another cool alternative is the pull-out sofa / here you should pay particular attention to the quality, because this piece of furniture is used day and night and must be extremely durable.
In the one-room apartment, where the kitchen, living room and bedroom are in one room, a good wall bed can be extremely practical. It combines the functions of bedroom and living room furniture in a compact, space-saving design. In addition to the pull-out bed, there are usually several shelves with or without cupboard doors that have plenty of storage space.

Small bedrooms are often transformed into cozy children’s rooms because the little ones do not need as much space as the adults. Even with several children, you can practically furnish the small bedroom if it has a high ceiling. In this case, the beds can be designed on two floors connected by a ladder. This second level in the room can also be set up as a play area if it is too small for entire beds.
Practical furnishing ideas are of central importance for a small apartment. With good planning and suitable furniture, even the small room can be designed to be multifunctional.

Penthouses are also characterized by a small living space and therefore require space-saving furnishings. Since an attic usually has a high ceiling, the sleeping area can be designed on a second level. So the bed is right under the roof. In this case, however, you also need a ladder that leads to the sleeping area.
Here you can see an example of a small apartment on two levels. The sleeping area is located directly above the kitchen and has a built-in closet. Although all living areas in this apartment are in one room, there is a clear distinction between them.
In this example, the bedroom and living room are again designed in one room, with the sleeping area above the living area.
