The Bed Hiding in Your Closet

Murphybeds

Murphy bed uses can be a primary purchasing factor for those with limited space. In addition to storage concerns, Murphy bed designs have come a long way from the stereotypical television image of the folding wall bed.

For those that are less familiar with the Murphy bed uses and design, it consists of a folding bed that can be raised and lowered as necessary. When raised, it is hidden from view and typically camouflaged among the rest of the room. The Murphy bed was invented right around 1900 and has some kind of spring or piston lifting system to allow you to easily raise and lower the bed.

If space considerations are your primary concern, you can incorporate a Murphy bed into a whole room or apartment organization system. By using other closet systems, you can scale up your storage efficiency room by room. This may be especially of interest to those that are drawn to minimalist styles or simple living.

As big city apartment sizes seem to shrink, you can get multiple living spaces out of one room with some creativity and a Murphy bed. What was once a crowded studio apartment can transform into an orderly living room with the simple flick of your Murphy bed. Some of the more modern Murphy bed designs may feature some automation to assist with the transformation.

The small home movement is also a good place to use a Murphy bed. Some urban residents are starting to build so called micro houses that are a fraction of the size of traditional homes. They use furnishings and systems to maximize space and functionality. For example, they may purchase appliances that can serve more than one purpose versus taking up space for a single use. Since the Murphy bed is so critical to saving space it may work well in these little homes. To learn more, read this: www.morespaceplace.com

    Ha! I cannot help thinking about some 3 stooges episode where someone is inevitably folded into the bed, but I would love to have the functionality.

    Some of the more modern designs are quite sophisticated and can disguise the bed very well. Plus they fit in with my style too.
