What Is A TV Bed?
It’s really pretty simple, a TV bed is a bed where the footboard conceals a TV. The TV is typically on a lifting mechanism so that when you are ready to watch something, you simply tap a button and your TV pops out of the footboard. These TV lifting mechanisms are usually electric, and are usually powered through a remote or other switch.
Now that we’ve covered the basics, you are almost a certified TV bed expert. The last thing you need to finish your certification is a little vocabulary.
- TV lift mechanism: The electric lifting mechanism that raises and lowers the TV.
- TV lift footboard: The footboard of the TV bed. This is the cabinet containing the TV lifting mechanism.
- End-of-bed TV cabinets: A TV lift cabinet designed to be placed at the foot of your bed. This is not a footboard, rather it’s a cabinet that butts up against the foot of your bed.
- Happiness: Watching your favorite shows in a TV bed 😉
How Do TV Beds Maximize Bedroom Space?
While TV beds can work well in any bedroom, we’ve found that there are a few specific applications where TV beds really shine.
You Have An Odd-Shaped Room
If you have a TV in your bedroom currently, odds are it is either hanging on the wall directly opposing your bed or it’s on a dresser or entertainment center directly opposing your bed. So, what if the wall opposing your bed is quite far away? What if there’s a window in the way? Or what if the opposing wall is at an odd angle that isn’t conducive to hanging a TV? These are all very common reasons people tend to get a TV bed.
You Have Limited Space At The Foot Of Your Bed
If you are short on space at the foot of your bed, the last thing you want to do is make your room feel cramped by placing a TV there. Whether the TV is hanging on the wall or placed on a dresser or other cabinet it can feel like you’re losing valuable space. A TV bed is great in these situations because the TV is concealed neatly and attractively in a simple footboard. This way, it isn’t taking up room when you’re not using it.
Just like that you’re a TV bed expert! There’s no diploma to hang on your wall, but at least you can boast to all of your friends and family that you’re a certified TV-bed-ologist now. And they said you wouldn’t amount to anything.
TV beds are a new and exciting horizon of bedroom furniture, and they can really maximize your space, without sacrificing the style of your bedroom. That’s probably the most appealing part of a TV bed; they look like a bed! They don’t look like an awkward piece of technology, they conceal your TV nicely and neatly in a stylish bed. So, if you have an odd-shaped room, you’re short on space, or you just want the experience of watching your favorite shows in a TV bed, consider a TV bed.Tags: A Master Bedroom, TV bed
