Rockler Introduces Convertible Bed And Desk Kit
New Hiddenbed® Kit Helps DIYers Build a Fold-out Bed/Desk Unit
MEDINA, MN (February 4, 2014) - Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced the Hiddenbed Kit, a system that helps maximize space by alternately functioning as a bed and an office workstation. Smaller bedrooms and workspaces, where square footage is at a premium, are now opened up for new and improved layout possibilities. Objects up to 17'' high can remain on the desk as it is transformed back into a bed.
"The Hiddenbed mechanism is unique in its function and delivers great convenience," says Steve Krohmer, Rockler's Vice President of Product Marketing. "To be able to switch back and forth between a bed and desk without disturbing the items on the desk is a wonderful accomplishment in furniture design. It allows people new configuration opportunities within their living space."
To use the workstation, the bed simply folds up against the wall, and the mechanism lifts the desktop to working height with items left intact where they were all along. Each Hiddenbed Kit includes a fitting set, plus a jump drive with technical drawings for several bed styles in CAD and PDF, and assembly instructions. The Hiddenbed Kit is available in two bed sizes: Twin, which holds a standard 39'' x 75'' twin mattress, and Double, which holds a standard 54'' x 75'' double (full) mattress. Each Hiddenbed can be constructed using as little as three sheets of 4' x 8' plywood. No building material or fasteners are included, but a complete Hiddenbed Hardware Fastener Kit is available separately (46521).
The Twin Hiddenbed Kit (44833) retails for $329.99 and the Double Hiddenbed Kit (46658) for $349.99. The Hiddenbed Hardware Fastener Kit (46521) retails for $79.99. All kits can be purchased at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler.com, or from the Rockler catalog.
