Types and modern models

There are the following types of beds.
Such a bed consists of two berths located one above the other. For the convenience of lifting, it is equipped with a front or side ladder. Bunk beds are available for both children and adults. This option is very convenient, in which there is a double bed at the bottom, and on top there is a place for one person.
In this case, the berth is fixed to the wall or ceiling using special pipes, ropes, metal chains or cables. The ladder can be rigid or rope. The LED lighting under the bed will help to decorate the room in an unusual way, which will create the impression of a “floating” bed.
The bed under the ceiling in the French style will perfectly fit into the interior of a modern apartment. It is equipped with a lifting mechanism fixed to the ceiling or wall, thanks to which the sleeping place can be lowered and raised to the required height. If you install LED lighting in its lower part, it will decorate the interior of the room in an original way when the bed is in the upper position.
This model is ideal for equipping a children’s corner in a small room. The sleeping place here can be combined with other pieces of furniture: a desk, a wardrobe, shelves for books. The ladder in this model can be removable or fixed.
The bed under the ceiling refers to specialized furniture that should be made to order. Installation and installation must also be carried out by specialists.

You can choose a movable model that is installed on the guide rails. To control such a bed, a special electronic remote control is used. A less expensive option is to install a berth on high legs.
A bed under the ceiling allows you to save room space. Additional space is freed up for the installation of a recreation area, a table or a workplace. Before installing such a bed, be sure to make sure that the concrete floor is capable of withstanding a heavy load.
