Benefits of Vertical Versus Horizontal Wallbeds

Choose between a vertical or a horizontal wallbed depending on your needs.When you are in the market for a wallbed, you might want to consider the differences between a vertical wallbed and a horizontal wallbed.

At Wallbeds “n” More, we provide our customers with a choice of both horizontal wallbeds and vertical wallbeds. Our wallbeds come in a variety of sizes, finishes and hardware, making it easy to choose a look that suits your décor.

Why would you want to choose Horizontal or Vertical?

Horizontal desk wallbeds are wider but shorter. For most guests, it is a question of space and how their room is laid out. A horizontal wallbed is wider but shorter, as the bed is laid out horizontally against the wall.

The most common wallbed style is vertical because the bed is narrower while taking full use of the wall height to put the longest length of the bed up to the ceiling. This uses less floor real estate and more wall real estate.

For some, they are trying to put a bed in a smaller area where the wall doesn’t go as high or features or shelving on the wall prevents a vertical bed from fitting there. Storage placement may be another factor as a hutch can be added above a horizontal wall bed to add more storage to your room.

What Happy Customers Say

  • I have had the pleasure of doing business at the Costa Mesa Wallbeds and More on two separate occasions. I was invited to visit the store by appointment which assured me Roger’s full attention and respect for my time. I was able to ask questions and see a demonstration of how to open and close the beds. We discussed what I could expect from the delivery and installation personnel. Roger was outgoing and helpful in every way. The pieces I bought are comfortable, attractive, and a great solution to space issues.

  • We were so happy to find a wall bed place so close to home – from the moment I called to ask questions to the time we went and looked and bought the staff and everyone involved was wonderful. The time it took to get it and the delivery and set up was wonderful. I would do it again.
