A Quality Rollaway Bed is the Perfect Solution for Overnight Friends and Family
Choose the Best Rollaway Bed for Your Needs and Lifestyle
Almost every portable bed follows the same format and form factor – they all fold away
in some way, shape or form. Inflatable beds deflate and can be rolled up in to a very compact size. Folding beds,
as the name suggests, can be folded down and fitted in to the back of a cupboard. Even the larger guest bed can
generally be folded away and put into a cupboard, or like a trundle bed pushed under a bed and be left out of sight
and out of mind.
In the world of portable beds, this is generally the rule, that the beds must become more compact in order to
save space. But there is always one exception to every rule, and in the world of portable beds this is the
Roll Away Bed.
The rollaway bed does not fold down. It does not fit neatly into a cupboard, unless that cupboard happens to be
slightly bigger than the dimensions of a full bed!
Full-Sized Bed in a Portable Package
Rather than folding, the rollaway bed is perfectly balance to stand in a stable way on its headboard. This will
allow the host to pull down the bed onto its back so that it can be used by their guests, and then stand it back on
its head when the guests leave and the room can be returned back to normal. It is quite an impressive feat for
manufacturers to be able to design such a product, that is so large and heavy, to balance perfectly on its
head. In fact, most of us are familier with the rollaway we have seen in a hotel.
As with all portable beds, there are positives and negatives to each design type. Generally these positives and
negatives can be clearly seen by all at a moments notice.
The most positive aspect of the full size rollaway bed is that it is, virtually, a normal bed. There is no
foam mattress or thinned down padding. The rollaway bed mattress is a real bed mattress. This is a bed
that looks, feels and genuinely believes it to be a proper bed, albeit a bed with an interesting party trick – it
can stand on its head! The result of which is a bed that is properly comfortable. This is the kind of bed that when
you mother comes to stay, you would not be embarrassed to make up for her – she would get a perfectly good nights
sleep in a roll away bed, Indeed for those that are not there to see it rolled down, There is very little to show
the roll away bed as being a portable bed at all.
The downside to the roll away bed is that it is not really portable. It can be classed as portable because,
unlike other beds, it can be put away when not in use.
The roll away bed is ugly however, because there is no place to hide it. No matter what you do in your room,
there will be no getting away with the fact that you have a bed in the corner standing on its head.
Rollaway beds are available in big box stores like Walmart and online.
