If you are accustomed to living in a small apartment or house, you know how treasured space is. You may have little or no extra space. If you’re looking for ways to maximize the area that you have, a wall bed, otherwise known as a Murphy bed, is a great option. There’s no denying that sleeping in a large, spacious bed is comfortable, but smaller beds can be just as comfortable and provide superior functionality. Why give up space to a bed during the day when it’s not in use? Here are some other benefits of wall beds that should be taken into consideration.
#1: Wall beds are becoming more and more popular.
Murphy beds have become more and more popular in the last 10 years or so, especially due to the trend towards small and so-called tiny homes. More and more companies are offering wall beds and the market is continuing to grow. These beds are sought after because they are easy to use and can allow one room to be used for multiple purposes.
#2: They allow for flexibility.
When you fold up a wall bed, you can transform a bedroom into a living room, den or any other type of room. When stored away, the bed uses vertical or horizontal space. It does not take up valuable space when it’s not in use. If you have a room that doubles as a guest bedroom or an office, or you have a room that has only a little bit of floor space, a wall bed could be a great option. Simply lower it from the vertical or horizontal position when you need to use it. When you’re done, lift it back up in one simple motion.
#3: They are available in a variety of styles.
Wall beds come in a variety of styles, but there are four main materials that are used: particle board, plywood, solid wood or MDF board. Each material has different benefits. Solid wood beds are generally the sturdiest and are the most common. When you are looking for a new wall bed, be sure to find one that fits into the overall style of the room, since it will likely be used in a multi-purpose space.
