Our horizontal wall bed differs from the vertical in that it can be used without the counterbalancing springs supplied, in which case it does not need to be fixed to the floor.

The horizontal wall bed is supplied with a set of three flexible rubber bedding retaining straps which are permanently attached to the wall side and can be stretched across and hooked on to the outside of the bed to hold the mattress and all the bedding - including the pillows - in place when the bed is folded away.

To complement our horizontal wall beds, we offer a choice of medium or firm, 8ins. deep, interior sprung mattresses. We also offer a white wall shelf (see 1 and 2 above), complete with two wall brackets, curtain rail and runners, leaving you to supply the hooks and your own curtains to match the decor of your room. We do not currently offer cupboard surrounds, or matching storage units to go with our horizontal wall beds.

Horizontal wall beds are slightly less practical than vertical wall beds because they take up more space along the wall, are somewhat more awkward to incorporate into cabinets and do not lend themselves as well to use with a headboard. Also, as one side of the bed is permanently positioned against the wall, double sizes are more difficult to get into and out of (for the person on the 'inside') and also to make up.

Having said this, there are situations where only a horizontal wall bed will fit (e.g. loft conversions with sloping roofs, some dining rooms, etc). Our ‘Horizontal’ ‘Wiskaway’® Wallbeds are available, on a made-to-order basis, for the few situations where our vertical wall beds are not the most suitable.

Our ‘Horizontal’ ‘Wiskaway’ King De Luxe Wallbed is essentially a sideways-folding version of our vertical wall bed, features the same heavy-duty all-steel construction, automatically opening and retracting legs, ten year guarantee and is designed to be folded away fully made up with all the bedding - including the pillows.
