How does a TV Bed Work?
A TV bed appears like a normal bedframe with a high headboard, but with the addition of a higher than usual footboard that discreetly houses an LED screen inside. This means the footboard can vary in height and width depending on the model.
The footboard can either be operated manually on certain designs or opened at the push of a button. Electrical mechanisms built inside activate automatically, slide the television up and out of the frame. Designed specifically for the film and television lover, some beds can be completely controlled with a remote control.
What are the benefits of a TV bed?
Not only is having a television at the foot of your bed a real touch of luxury, this style of frame can also help to save on bedroom space, as they prevent the bedroom design being disturbed by the need to attach a TV onto the wall, or create enough surface space to appropriately host a TV.
In premium TV bed designs, speaker systems can also be built into the frame to provide surround sound. Many designs feature space underneath the mattress to house DVD players and games consoles, which tuck away neatly so there’s no need to worry about loose cables.
Whether you’re a soap-lover or simply like to catch the news while enjoying breakfast in bed, TV beds are ideal for those who love the idea of catching a show while tucked up under the duvet.
Things to Consider for your TV Bed
Consider an Ottoman Storage TV Bed – Ottoman beds can be side or foot opening. Think about your room and where you are best accessing the ottoman so you can pick the option which best suits you. Think about depth of the storage on your ottoman, will your chosen ottoman store the items you are hoping to add.
TV Size – Check on the description of the bed to see what the maximum size of the television can be. Some beds can take up to a 43” screen but others can be smaller. You may need to consider the depth of the television too.
Accessories – Some TV Beds come with a built-in speaker system (some have speakers in the footend and headboard). Some also have peripheral connections, headphone socket, aux and USB ports located in the head board.
