One alternative is to put the bed in a drawer. This has a few benefits; you don't have to make the bed, just push it away. You do have to leave the space open where the bed goes, or you will be moving furniture. It also involves serious construction, building the raised floor.

The idea behind the project is one of educating the family to the non-conventional and multifunctional use of space. It is for this reason that it was decided to give the large existing living room space multiple functionality; the owner's bedroom, the living and dining space and a relaxation area are all found here while the remaining spaces are dedicated to the newborn children.
