-- This new popularity for TV beds is probably due to the new lower cost, for a product that used to typically cost in the thousands it’s now more affordable for the masses. The large majority of designs come in a faux leather which is not only nicer to animals but is far cheaper to manufacture. You can still expect to pay thousands for a real leather bed but the chance to have this technology for yourself has now come down to around the $500 mark, a price that a consumer would typically spend on a luxurious looking bed.
The advent of new slim line televisions has allowed this old invention to look sleeker and ultra cool due to it being completely un-obvious that a television is contained in the base of the bed. All TV beds come with a control panel on the side but for those who wish to have an added gadget you will often receive a remote control as well. On command the top flap of the base opens and the television will quietly rise out of the base, once you are done the TV will recline back into it’s hidden unit. The majority o beds house up to a 32” sets and with a depth of almost 10cm so all modern day flat screen televisions can fit. For those who want an even larger housing unit then larger models are available. Some of the manufacturers are also supplying the television, but if you already have your own flat screen telly, you can be rest assured that it will probably fit and will be easy to install.
A new range for children has entered the market, these have a slightly higher price tag and are being marketed as more bespoke multimedia beds. The main difference is the addition of speakers set in the head-rest, they also have extra storage units for books etc. For any kid a bed where a television magically appears is probably a dream come true where they can surely amaze their friends.
For adults, not only does it create a cosy viewing experience but for many who don’t like the look of a television in the bedroom this is the perfect aesthetic solution that comes with an added James bond style twist.
For gamers who wish to lie back and relax whilst playing their favourite computer game this creates a very captive viewing experience. Most designs come with underside compartments to store computer games consoles and DVD player.
