Do you offer only one wallbed mechanism?

No, Seattle Wallbeds offers two (2) mechanisms. Our most popular is the platform type. This mechanism incorporates the mechanism and the decorative face panels into a single spring operated unit. This mechanism mounts to the bed cabinet. This can be mounted Horizontally or Vertically.

Our other mechanism is either floor or wall mounted and is free standing. The cabinet which encloses the mechanism utilizes bi-fold doors. This free standing mechanism is standard in our Pivoting Library Bed series. It is called the NEXT Bed.

Do I need a Cabinet

NO! You can place a Seattle Wallbeds next bed mechanism in an existing closet or you can design a custom opening. The Do-It Yourself customer may want to build their own cabinet.

How many colors can I get?

Please see the finish palette on the product pages.

What is the minimum ceiling height for a wallbed?

For a vertical, queen-size wallbed; or the Pivoting Library Bed; the ceiling height must be at least 92”. For a full or twin size, the height can be 87”. If your ceiling is too low for a vertical bed we offer horizontally mounted beds. Update: We have come up with a shorter style queen and full size bed that can accommodate shorter ceiling heights. The short bed in queen can fit into an 87” ceiling clearance and the short full or single into an 82” ceiling clearance.

How far do each of the beds extend into the room?

The vertical queen and “XL long boy” extend horizontally into the room 89”. The vertical twin and double bed extend 86”.

Can I use any mattress?

Yes! This is one of the cost saving advantages of our Seattle Wallbeds Mechanism. Depending on the style of wallbed and the depth of the cabinets you can use up to a 12” thick mattress for a panel bed and up to a 10” mattress for library beds.

What is the best priced unit you offer

Our wallbeds are budget priced, we want everyone to be able to afford a quality Seattle Wallbed. If you compare you will be amazed at the price savings we offer.

Our Flat Panel Cabinetry Line in wood grain Melamine is for the Budget Minded! It is made of the finest furniture quality, commercial grade, 0.75" melamine.

We also sell the NEXT Bed (Murphy Bed) mechanism separately as well as the supreme steel panel bed frame and spring lift mechanism, for the do-it-yourself person. The next bed mechanism is floor or wall mounted and would be installed in a closet or behind bi-fold doors or cabinet of your own construction. The panel bed frame and mechanism require a cabinet to be built to specific dimensions and the lift mechanism mounts to the sides of the cabinet. Kits come with full cut list and dimensions for the cabinet.

What are your cabinets made of?

We have three different materials that we use. The flat panel series is available in Melamine, (see Color Chart) solid and wood grains as well as Unfinished Wood Veneers. Melamine is a second generation "Formica" or plastic coating product. It is made of wood composite board that is then heat processed with a color coating. We use the finest 0.75" furniture quality board. Unfinished wood veneers are available in Cherry, Maple, Oak, Fir, Beech and many other species. Veneers are thin slices of wood which are applied to composition board. We use 7-ply wood veneer, 0.75". Our thermal foil raised panel series is a heat applied, vinyl coating over MDF board. Our wood raised panel doors are made of solid wood and are available in Cherry and Maple.

Modern manufacturing practices have improved greatly and there are little or NO measurable VOC's in the products we use. The particle board is a dense Furniture Grade product that is made from wood leftover from the lumber milling process. They are certified Green products and hold up very well. The Thermal foil and melamine finishes clean up easily with mild soap and water. For more information about these products please visit: www.roseburg.com

Who stains or paints the Veneer

We offer our natural wood beds finished or unfinished, your choice. Beds can be painted to match existing trim or stained to match other natural wood products in your home.

Top

Do you make cabinets other than the wallbed cabinet?

Yes, check out our “Products” pages. We offer a variety of floor and wall cabinets to round out your in-home office or storage needs. Good news! You do not need to order all of your cabinets at once. Get started with a bed and then let us help you grow as your needs or budget allow.

How Does a Seattle Wallbed Work?

SIMPLE! This is a counter-balanced spring mechanism of either the platform or next bed mechanism, bolted to your cabinet, wall or floor for safety.

You simply pull the bed down and lift it back up. It is so light, you won't believe it!

Top

How is the wallbed mounted?

Our Vertical wallbed systems are mounted to the wall, library bed mechanisms require mounting to the bottom plate in the wall and come equipped with the hardware to do so. In the event that it cannot be mounted to the bottom plate in the wall, there is optional mounting hardware to secure the frame to the floor as long as you have a solid surface to mount to.

We deliver and install for the prices quoted here on the web site. If you choose to purchase a do it yourself mechanism the basic tools required would be, rechargeable drill, phillips, flat head and square drive screw tips, 1/2”, 7/16” and 5/16” sockets and wrenches, tape measure, level and some general carpentry skills.
