You probably know that a wall bed makes getting ready for guests easy and is great for maximizing space in your home. But are you aware of all the features and options that Murphy beds offer? Read on to learn about three lesser known benefits of Murphy beds. For more information, reach out to Closet & Storage Concepts of Charlotte.

Model Choice

There are so many different wall bed models to choose from! If you want a model with bookshelves that function as doors, check out the Madison and Jefferson models. If you need a Murphy bed that will fit in a smaller room, there are a couple great options.

For rooms with limited floor space or low ceilings, the Cosmopolitan model, which folds out from the wall horizontally, is perfect. It can serve as a daybed as well as a place for guests to sleep, so it’s also an easy way to temporarily add extra seats to a small room. The Metropolitan can also be a good choice. The panel door serves as mattress support when the bed is down, so it doesn’t take up any extra room. With many wall bed models, you have the option of using a twin mattress, which can also help you save some space.


You don’t have to sacrifice comfort for convenience and extra space! With most wall bed models, you can choose between a variety of mattresses and sizes to find the option that best meets your needs. Pulling your Murphy bed up and down won’t bend or crease the mattress, so you can expect it to last and stay comfortable for as long as it would on a standard bed.

Extra Storage

Most models either come with side cabinetry by default or give you the option of adding custom cabinets and shelving. You can even add a built-in desk. Depending on your space, you can either have a traditional desk next to the bed as part of the side cabinetry or a foldable desk that serves as mattress support when the bed is down. Combining a Murphy bed and a desk is a great space-saving option for children’s bedrooms and home offices that double as guest rooms.
