Stowaway Beds Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS A STOWAWAY BED ?
A stowaway bed is a bed that you fold down from the wall, and after a great night’s sleep, folds back up against the wall to provide daytime floor space. It is not the comedy bed of ‘Laurel and Hardy’ films – you will not disappear into a cupboard with a Hideaway mechanism. In fact, stowaway beds have been around for a long time – from the smallest country cottage to luxury apartments, people have always needed more space.
ARE STOWAWAY BEDS COMFORTABLE ?
Yes. Hideaway stowaway beds are designed for every-night sleeping, and you can use most mattresses on them. Hideaway use a sprung slatted base to give support to the shape of your body, and using good quality mattresses, are more comfortable than conventional beds.

Yes. All our beds come with complete with our unique quick release straps, enabling the bedding to stay in place.
CAN A STOWAWAY BED INCREASE THE VALUE OF MY PROPERTY ?

WHAT ARE THE ALTERNATIVES TO A STOWAWAY BED ?
- Sofa Bed – rarely a comfortable sofa or a comfortable bed, and certainly not quick to make up.
