3 Key Benefits of Murphy Beds That Will Make You Want One

Queen Murphy BedAre you looking for a way to maximize sleeping space in your home? Whether you’re facing houseguests with no guestroom or a child’s small bedroom, a Murphy bed could be the answer.

Also known as a wall bed, a Murphy bed is best known for its ability to fold up against the wall and clear floor space when not in use. These days, Murphy beds are used in far more applications than just small studio apartments. You can probably find a use for one in your own home. If you do, you can expect three major benefits.

More Open Space

Creating more space is a fundamental reason to purchase a Murphy bed. With its ability to hide away, you prevent wasting valuable floor space during the day. This leaves you with more room to play, exercise or spend time on other activities besides sleeping.

Multi-Functional Rooms

Murphy beds enable you to use a single room for dual purposes. For instance, a Murphy bed in your office or craft room turns it into a temporary guestroom with a flick of the wrist. That way, you don’t waste an entire room as an unoccupied guestroom when friends and family aren’t staying over.

Also, a wall bed in your child’s room can easily accommodate more room to play during the day. This is a lifesaver if you don’t have a spare room for your child to get excess energy out during playtime.

Sophisticated Designs

Since Murphy beds are making a comeback, they feature better designs than ever before. Many feature wall-mounting systems, which do very little damage to the wall so you can relocate the bed if needed. Straps are available with many models to hold the bedding in place so you can fold up the bed every morning without needing to replace the sheets nightly.

Several designs are available, some of the most notable of which include:

·      Custom Murphy Bed Library Murphy bed: With this option, elegant bookshelves conceal the Murphy bed during the day. The central shelves pull apart when your guests are ready to sleep to reveal a queen-size wall bed, which a single person can easily fold and unfold thanks to a spring-balanced mechanism.

·       Bi-fold Murphy bed: During the day, all you see is a stylish cabinet. When you’re ready to sleep, open the bi-fold doors concealing the Murphy bed so you can fold down a twin, full or queen-size mattress for a comfortable night’s sleep.

·       Flip-up desk Murphy bed: Perfect for an office or bedroom, this Murphy bed design features a flip-up desk on the underside of the mattress, which you can use when the bed is stored against the wall.
