Summer has essentially arrived in earnest, and that means you might be welcoming more house guests. Maybe the kids will have friends sleeping over, or perhaps relatives from far and wide will stop in for an overnight visit or longer. This is a busy time of year that might call for extra sleeping arrangements. But how can you be a gracious host if you don't have a spare bedroom? The answer is simple: a custom Murphy bed. Murphy beds can live practically anywhere that you have space for a slim, tall cupboard. They are sleek furnishings that stay closed up and out of sight and when you need them, they lower easily to create a complete and comfortable bed.
If you need a guest room but don’t have enough space to dedicate a separate room solely for overnight guests, a Murphy bed is the perfect solution. A wall bed, as they are often called, free up floor space and allow a room to be utilized in a dual capacity for everyday tasks or a comfortable place to sleep. They might be just the right choice if you have a studio or very small one bedroom apartment where maximizing your space is really critical. You don’t have to sacrifice style or comfort and your options are almost limitless. There is no construction, and each design can be customized for just about any sized space.
There are a lot of options out there for children when it comes to space-saving beds. These include trundle, bunk and folding - better known as Murphy beds. All of them are viable options and save space. But what if there was a bed that was able to do more than that? That is where the hidden bed comes in.
Summer leaves more time to travel, which means you might be entertaining overnight guests at your home—whether your family is staying with you or you’re hosting out-of-town friends for a weekend. But creating a permanent guest room in your house may not always be realistic. You might be short on room or hesitant to dedicate an entire room to guest quarters you’ll use just a handful of times each year. Unfortunately, the other sleeping options, such as an air mattress that will no doubt deflate overnight, a thin, uncomfortable sofa bed or even the floor, aren’t very attractive. Rather than offering friends and family a bad night’s sleep, there are some creative and attractive ways to accommodate extra guests and create a dual-use room.
No matter the size of your house or apartment, space is often a premium. Rooms that serve multiple functions can get cluttered with furniture and floor space disappears all too quickly. For rooms that double as guest rooms for visitors, it is especially hard to save space while still having enough sleeping capacity. Sometimes you just need some out-of-the-box solutions for your beds that will allow you to maximize whatever amount of space you have. Need help and have questions?
