First up when did TV Beds appear on the scene? TV beds were first introduced in the late 1990s, although a few models had been available since the early 1980s. The idea of being able to watch TV from the comfort of your own bed was very appealing to many people, so it wasn’t long before they started popping up in bedrooms around the world but were usually the preserve of swanky hotels.
Now, like lots of modern conveniences, the TV Bed is available on the mass market. Let's dive into how you can choose the perfect TV bed for you...
Get the Basics right:
When selecting a bed, regardless of whether or not it has an integrated TV, there are several essential factors to consider. The primary one is the size - ranging from double up to Super king. To ensure you make the best decision for your space and comfort needs, measure how much room you have before committing to such a large purchase.
Mattresses and beds, of course, are usually separate purchases but many people tend to buy them together. When it comes to a mattress, the correct balance of comfort and support must be found. Taking into account your own body shape, weight and sleeping habits, a mattress should be chosen that meets your individual needs. Memory foam is also an increasingly popular choice as it moulds to the contours of your body for ultimate relaxation - perfect for when you are watching TV in bed.
The TV Set:
You will also need to consider the size and quality of the TV you want. Up until around 4 years ago 32" was the standard size of TV for a TV bed. Now, 43" is the standard TV for a TV bed. If you are buying a TV separately it is important to check the technical specifications of the TV Bed to make sure your desired TV is compatible with the bed.
To store or not to store?
Some TV beds have storage beneath or within the frame. While this is not essential, it can be a great way to make use of otherwise wasted space and declutter your bedroom. The storage solution in a TV Bed usually takes the form of a deep ottoman unit which can be filled with bedding, seasonal clothes or anything else you deem necessary.
TV Bed or an Adjustable TV bed - what's the difference?
TV beds are a great way to relax in bed while watching your favourite shows, however, they do typically require you to lie back and watch the TV from one angle. An adjustable TV Bed on the other hand gives you the opportunity to adjust both the head and foot sections of the bed so that it is easier for you to watch from multiple positions. Adjustable beds are perfect for people who perhaps need the extra flexibility of being able to adjust their sitting position when in bed.
TV Beds - the benefits:
TV beds offer a number of advantages and benefits, from comfort to convenience. They are perfect for those who love watching television shows or movies in bed without having to worry about sitting up in uncomfortable positions. Additionally, TV beds can also help you save space by combining the two elements into one piece of furniture - making it ideal for smaller bedrooms, or if you just want the luxury of being able to watch TV from the comfort of your own bed!
