Case Studies

A look into how Wall Bed King beds have made a difference for our trade customers, see how maximising space can improve business.

Case study - Metropolitan Housing Association

Metropolitan Housing Association

Several months on from her purchase of one double wall bed from Wallbeding.co.uk, Delphine Chandler is still smiling at how well things worked out for her and her clients. A Care and Support Manager with the 140-unit strong Metropolitan Housing Association, Delphine needed to find a ‘temporary bed’ for a lounge area in one of the supported living complexes in England that her company manages.

The nature of her service – which specialises in helping individuals with learning disabilities and other similar health conditions - means that often she can often be asked to find a bed for someone at extremely short notice. In this particular case the only solution was to erect one in a communal area which could be used overnight then ‘tidied away’ the following morning. A folding wall bed was the obvious answer.

“We needed to find some sleeping space but because it was in a communal area, we definitely didn’t want to have the bed lying there permanently,” she said. “The minute we found Wallbedking.co.uk we knew we had the answer to our dilemma.

Delphine said she and her team had done quite a bit of research because, being publicly-funded, they were obliged to find the most reasonable, quality bed. “We looked at other sites selling similar products and were a bit stunned to find that the same product varied in price from £600 or so all the way up to £3000,” she added. “And it wasn’t a quality issue since the Wallbedking double bed was one of the most affordably-priced we could find. We’re actually delighted with the quality and, more importantly, so is the individual who is using it! It really is perfect for what we need.”

If it had been the quality of the bed alone Delphine would have rated it 5 out of 5. What really put the icing on the cake for her though was the fact that she didn’t have to wait long for it to be delivered (another consideration due to the emergency nature of the situation).

“I was delighted to see the bed delivered on time,” she said. “Not only that but the whole process of ordering and payment was extremely smooth and easy-to-understand. We also liked the fact that VAT was already included in the price since this made the admin side of things a lot easier for us too.”

Delphine added that she would have no hesitation ordering more beds from wallbedking.co.uk in the future. “Save yourself time searching the internet. I’d recommend this company to anyone thinking of purchasing a folding bed,” she added. “In fact, ask my friends and colleagues and you’ll find I already have.”

"Fantastic option where you have limited space. Have put in my box room which I use as an office too. Can fold my desk and chair to allow bed to come down. Very easy to bring up and down. Used an existing mattress with it. Easy to install. Customer service is first class. Guys who delivered were great. Tim is very helpful and supplied extra ties to allow me to tie the quilt cover to the bed so I don't need to store elsewhere. Can't praise this company enough for service and quality."

"I was a little sceptical at first as the price was a lot lower than other places online but the customer service team answered all my emails perfectly so I ordered the classic bed, cabinet and mattress bundle (10% discount! was hard to turn down) and I wasn't disappointed. The delivery was spot on and assembly was a breeze, as is the operation of the bed. The cabinet looks fantastic and the mattress is as good, if not better than the leading foam mattresses on the market, not to mention the wow factor from guests when they come to stay is also pretty great! "

"Very good option for a guest bed. Also seems to be the most competitively priced. I have put mine inside the wall unit and then painted the wall unit. Also put on a very good quality mattress. Much better than, for example, than the not particularly comfortable sofa bed option."

Case study - B&H Properties

B&H Properties

A successful property developer in the City of London, entrepreneur Joel Snitzer – not surprisingly – has never has the wool pulled over his eyes. Because, when it comes to getting the best price and quality for an item, he knows his stuff.

When he came to Wallbedking.co.uk for instance, Joel was looking for a total of 52 wall beds for a new development he and his team were creating in the capital. He wanted both quality and a decent price. Naturally he got both.

“This was an important new development for us and I wasn’t looking for any old wall beds,” he said. “The rental apartments we were building were of an extremely high standard and the beds, naturally, had to reflect that. They also had to be in keeping with their surroundings in that the development contained modern, new apartments. The bed had to fit right in with that style aesthetic.

Joel said that after checking the quality of the materials used in the manufacture of the beds, as well as the build quality, he was confident that the Wallbedking products were manufactured to an extremely high standard.

“They were easy to install and worked beautifully once we saw them in situ,” he said.“In fact, they’re quite brilliant. Having a folding bed in an apartment means space isn’t an issue. Those living in the apartments also have the choice to have the bed down continually or to put it up and convert the bedroom into another facility during the day, such as an office or playroom for children. Having a folding bed really is the perfect solution for a smaller apartment – especially a one-bedroom home. “Really, it’s not as if having a folding bed is any less comfortable that a stand-alone either. We’ve never had any complaints about sleepless nights with a wallbed that we’ve put in. It’s just never been an issue and we don’t envisage it being either.”

Joel said he was particularly impressed with the five year guarantee that Wallbedking.co.uk offered him. “Obviously purchasing so many beds in one go can prove pretty nerve-wracking without some sort of promise of durability and quality to fall back on should anything go wrong. The length of this guarantee was certainly satisfying and, in the long run, it gave me absolute piece of mind,” he said. “And the price too, was pretty exceptional. Overall you can say I’m a very happy man with my purchases from WallBedKing”

"I had this bed installed into a custom recess with power and shelving to the sides - opening the double doors the bed pops out fully made up and ready to use - it's a bedroom in an integrated cupboard! Works perfectly in a studio flat. Wall Bed King have excellent customer service, delivery and telephone support."

"I love my Wall bed King bed. So comfortable and gives us so much more room when we don't need it. Friendly efficient service. 5 Star product. Would definitely recommend."

"The bed mechanism is very easy to operate, and takes only seconds. The bed is concealed in the built-in cupboard during the day so we can still use our dining room without anyone needing to know that it is there."

Case study - Riverside Shepherd Huts

Riverside Shepherd Huts

Jane Richmond co-runs a company which designs and manufactures high-spec Shepherd Huts. These huts aren’t just used for shepherds having a break from tending their sheep of course. No, these days the huts are more likely to be a sweet holiday cottage, an office/art room or even a spare dressing room and bedroom (Jane’s customer in the South of France ordered the latter).

As you’d imagine, the huts don’t have acres of space in them. They’re compact and so the furniture has to be cleverly-designed and well-proportioned in turn. And this is where wall beds come in. The fact the beds can be erected into the wall to create more space during the day time makes the huts feel as if they’re twice as large thanthey actually are. Then there’s the fact that once folded away the beds aren’t ‘littering’ up the room. Guests also love the temporary nature of the beds since it fits in with the whole ‘getting away from it theme’ ie not many individuals have a wall bed in their own home.

So far this year Jane has ordered six wall beds from wallbedking.co.uk and there’s another five customers have asked for them to be installed in their own Shepherd’s Hut. “The wall beds are incredibly popular,” said Jane. “And it’s not difficult to see why. They’re just such a brilliant space saving device and yet they’re so functional as well.” As you’d expect Jane researched wall beds online but once she’d seen the prices on Wallbedking.co.uk – as well as the quality of the build and materials – she ordered straight away. “We’re selling a quality product, our huts are something that are going to last a lifetime so the beds had to be similarly durable and of high quality. They also had to be economical for us to buy in the first place. These fitted the bill on both accounts.” Jane was also impressed by the speed of the service.

“The beds were delivered to us within a couple of days and on one occasion we received it the next day, which was fantastic,” she said. “It means that in turn, we can deliver quicker to our clients.”

Despite setting up business right in the middle of the recession, Riverside Shepherd Huts are going from strength to strength. “We sold one hut in the first six months of business,” said Jane, “but once word started to get round things picked up quickly. We’ve now sold around 77 huts and orders are coming in all the time. And that’s exactly why we need a supplier like Wallbedking.co.uk that we can rely on.”

"Amazing wall bed!! we purchased a double last year from Wall Bed King and we are delighted by the quality. It has given us space for our office and spare room. We could even use our king size mattress from our existing bed. Highly Recommend the beds and the customer service given. 5 stars *"

"Excellent product and first-class service from viewing to ordering to delivery and to after-sales service. Help was always readily available. Many thanks. Hope to deal with you again."

"My king size wall bed is both simple to assemble and it feels strong and reliable. I like the fact I can pack it away easily and it looks good. People who visit my flat are impressed and complimentary about the design and functionality and given I live in a studio flat and the same room can also be used as my dining room I’m well chuffed with the space the bed allows me to still use. Thanks."

Case study - Stoneham Construction Ltd

Stoneham Construction Ltd

With land at a premium, accessing a large enough patch for a property development can prove extremely difficult these days – especially when the area you’re buying the land on happens to be an island. And that was precisely the case with our customer, David Harris, a property developer on the Isle of Wight and trading under the name of Stoneham Construction Ltd.

David was keen for his company to provide commodious social housing for rent for families living on the island. As a result he was looking at building accommodation with two bedrooms rather than one. The difficulty was the units in the building he was converting had one large and airy room, rather than two.

Undeterred however, David saw his opportunity in the form of wall beds. As an experienced developer with several award-winning projects already under his belt he realised the solution was to insert an acoustic participation between the two rooms and for wall beds to be fitted in both adjoining rooms. This way he was guaranteed to maximise the existing space in each room while at the same time, come up with quality sleeping accommodation for the occupants. Our wall beds were the ideal solution as far as he was concerned.

“Investing in quality wall beds was the obvious answer to this very tricky dilemma we were faced with,” he said. “I’ve been working in the property development industry long enough to know what will work and what will turn out to be an unmitigated disaster. For this particular project I’d already decided that quality wall beds at an affordable price, was the only solution if we wanted to provide a quality product without going over budget and one which would appeal to all parties – crucially, the tenants.”

As a result of his decision David contacted us here at Wallbedking.co.uk and invested in 10 double beds on behalf of the company, Stoneham Construction Ltd. The beds would all be used for the new build housing units his company were building on the Isle of Wight.

David was pleased to find that not only did the Wallbedking.co.uk beds arrive on time, but they were also of an impressive quality and were simple enough to assemble and install. Importantly, they were also easy for the prospective tenants to use.

“The double beds were everything we wanted,” he added. “Really, I couldn’t have asked for better. Price-wise they were excellent, they arrived when we told they would and they work beautifully in the rooms.

“We’ve actually fitted them into a wardrobe and it’s painted a neutral colour – the same as the room – so they are completely unobtrusive and actually add to the aesthetics of the room.”

David assures us that for his next space-saving project he’ll definitely be returning to Wallbedking.co.uk as a repeat customer. Personally we’re delighted and can’t think of any higher standard of praise. We’re sure his tenants will be equally satisfied with their new beds and spacious accommodation.

"A very good product, superior to others we had seen. Delivery was as promised and included all necessary parts and instructions. Video for assembling was very helpful, and customer service from Tim at the office was of a high standard. We ordered the vertical studio double and Wall Bed King supreme double mattress, which is very comfy. Solid but easy to operate with the gas piston system."

"We bought a classic double vertical wall bed to enable us to use a room as an office for weekdays, but have an extra bedroom for guests. Our carpenter built shaker style cupboards for it, and we're absolutely delighted with the finished product - when packed away, the cupboard is smart and doesn't dominate the room, and the bed takes seconds to take out when we need it. We bought a double supreme mattress from Wall Bed King too and it's gorgeously comfy. Very happy all round - it's my favourite party trick to reveal its existence to surprised guests! Thank you!"

"Super happy with my Studio model! Sadly, a part of the frame broke off after 2 years but they quickly send over the right parts in order for me to fix the issue. Super service!"
