How to transform a park home study into a bedroom
Or, make your second bedroom a double-function room. The solution is a study bed, a desk that’s also a bed.
Adaptability is often key to the best use of space in both park and holiday homes, especially if you need occasional accommodation for guests. You don’t necessarily want to set aside a bedroom for guests on a permanent basis, if you only occasionally have overnight visitors.
Most park and leisure homes have two bedrooms – so how would it suit you if the second bedroom could have two functions? A study sometimes and a bedroom at other times. Equally, if your park home has a study, this unit enables you to convert that room into a bedroom.
We’ve discovered a company called StudyBed, which makes just what the name implies.
A study bed works like this…
A full-size bed and a large desk are in fact one unit. It converts from one mode to the other in just three seconds; the gas spring assistance makes the action rather like opening the boot of a car.
You can convert it from one to the other function without removing items from the desk to transform it into a bed, and without removing the bedding or the mattress to turn it into a desk.
The StudyBed’s desk surface remains level. You can even leave items plugged in. Two simply-operated catches hold the desk in place.
The result is a proper comfortable bed that’s a million miles better than putting an inflatable mattress on the floor and far more convenient, also, than a sofa bed. Your lounge remains a lounge at night and your guests are well accommodated in their own room.
Study beds: popular in the park home market
For these reasons, StudyBed has found its way into the park and holiday home market; although, of course, it’s equally ideal in a house setting where space may be at a premium and the versatility of these units means one room can have two functions.
StudyBeds are robustly constructed, heavy pieces of furniture. You can choose from a range of colour finishes or natural wood veneers. They’re free-standing, so, with the exception of one model, don’t need to be fixed to a wall. They have a five-year, first-owner guarantee.
Because of their size and because they will usually be destined for a small room, they come flat-packed for assembly inside the room. StudyBed has its own assembly team who will deliver and assemble it at a moderate cost. Delivery can be arranged anywhere in the UK.
StudyBed has a showroom in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, where the full range of models in various finishes are on display. The company also has showrooms attached to its northern distribution hub in Warrington, Cheshire, and head office in Thame, Oxfordshire.
And the study bed prices?
A single StudyBed – ideal for a park home study – is £1800. A small double StudyBed costs £1920 and a double-sized one is only slightly more, at £1980. Mattresses are from £156.
The company has a range of storage accessories available including a wall-mounted Top Box and under-desk storage units.
