A pull-out bed
Pull-out beds are clever space-saving ideas for those who have small spaces to furnish. Often, a pull-out bed is placed in a closet, or under a platform in which a bed is stored when not in use.
This bed is then pulled out or unfolded when guests come to visit, or when more room is needed for the night. With a pull-out bed, a person doesn’t have to sacrifice the space in their closet or their floor.
It is not a permanent addition to furniture, but instead is constructed and taken down as needed. A pull-out bed is a perfect choice for a small den or guest room.
A futon bed
A futon bed is a bed that is made from a mattress that’s covered on both sides by a flexible material. This material can be anything from cotton to metal, to plastic.
A futon is a generic term for a mattress that’s used as a bed for a guest room. Futons have a long history in Japanese culture and are still popular in Japan.
