A Murphy bed is a bed with hinges at one side that allows the bed to be folded up during times of non-use so it can be stored upright inside of a wall, tall cabinet, or closet. There are also Murphy beds that fold in a way that allows them to stack inside of what would otherwise appear to be a dresser or long cabinet. Some other common names for Murphy beds include fold-down beds, pull-down beds, or wall-beds. Murphy beds come in many styles and in different sizes. One common size is the queen-sized Murphy bed because it is large enough to safely accommodate two people, but isn't so large that it presents any issues. Here are some great things about Murphy beds, and different reasons for using one:
Murphy beds are easy to use
Some people who have never used a Murphy bed before wonder if it's very hard to pull them down and put them back up. The good news is that they tend to be very easy to manipulate due to the lighter weight of the mattresses and the design of the hinges and other components.
Murphy beds can transform most spaces
A Murphy bed is inconspicuous, so any room in your home can function as a normal living space most of the time. However, when you find the need for an extra bedroom, pulling the Murphy bed out and a couple of extra creative touches can have most rooms transforming instantly into a bedroom your guests will feel welcome and comfortable in.
