Why Wall Beds ?


Australia - traditionally the land of wide open spaces and spacious homes - yet as we  face increasing real estate prices and the need to live in a more sustainable way,

we have the opportunity to think about how we use the space we have.


Downsizing?  Seeking a more efficient and sustainable way of living? Seeking flexible holiday shack sleeping options? - you do not have to sacrifice living space for comfortable beds for guests and family.


Wall Beds are perfect as they fold up out of the way during the day - liberating that space to be used in other ways. 


Wall Beds can 'multitask' when integrated with other furniture  - i.e. a desk/bed; sofa/bed or even a bookcase/bed.


Certainly a cheaper option than buying a unit with another bedroom, or purchasing two separate pieces of furniture.


Commercial applications of Wall Beds also make sense:

  • additional beds in hotel rooms 

  • making small studio apartments appear more spacious

  • creating flexible bed and breakfast accommodation  

  • in hospitals - overnight beds for family members (more comfortable than the armchair)

  • ideal for disability home carers - beds that disappear during the day have to be better than sleeping on a sofa.


So whether you have a commercial need; a growing family; are working from home, or are simply choosing to downsize - we have the perfect Wall Bed for you. 


Wall Beds ...... a clever way

to use your space. 

Come and explore the possibilities.


Wall Beds put more space in your life


In 2015, when I was starting to look at setting up my own business in Tasmania, I didn't know much about Wall Beds - but I did know that my small spare bedroom that was dominated by a double bed (for occasional guests and family) was not going to function as my home office very effectively.


I had vague memories of those great 'fold out beds' from the old movies, and so I set out to find one. Great videos were also emerging on Facebook at this time of these amazing pieces of transforming furniture and Wall Beds. 


What surprised me was that there was very little information about on Wall Beds so my love of research, design and renovation took me on a 'discovery tour of Wall Beds', and after visits to Sydney and Melbourne - to see, touch and try all the Wall Beds I could find - I fell in love with the whole concept, and was very excited about their potential application in our busy lives here in Tasmania.


I identified the brands that I believe offer the widest range of wall beds - in terms of styles; quality and affordability - whilst also catering to the DIY person through to customised options.  


I also believe it's important for potential customers to have the opportunity to see and try these beds, and  after a discussion with Wayne at Genuine Joinery  (a trusted professional I'd met through my past renovations) an opportunity came up for me to set up a display room for Wall Beds in Genuine Joinery's new showrooms in Tasmania.


'Fold Out Furniture' in Tasmania was born.

Now its 2018, and we have learnt so much from our clients and the industry over these past 3 years. We have seen how these beds have provided a cost effective solution to meet peoples' needs, whilst freeing up space in domestic; commercial; healthcare; tourism and holiday home settings. 


I continue to be excited about transformable and space saving furniture and am expanding our range over the coming months to meet the other emerging needs identified by clients...  


We have also opened a showroom in the Home Ideas Centre in Melbourne, Victoria, as well as have beds on display in the Home Innovations Centre in Frankston - all great opportunities to come and see and try these beds for yourself. 


We look forward to working with you to help you find the perfect wall bed solution for your situation,
