If you’re interested in space-saving furniture, you’ve likely heard of the Murphy bed. These versatile alternatives to the traditional bed are ideal for anyone looking to optimize their living space. Read on to explore the 5 best features of the Murphy beds and learn whether one might be right for your home!

1. Space Saving Design

The feature people most often think of when they think Murphy beds. When not in use, the beds fold up into a cabinet, leaving the floor space free for other activities. This makes them great options for multipurpose rooms. And they’re especially useful in small apartments, where every inch of space counts.

But you don’t need a small home to get use out of a Murphy bed. Choose them for a sleek, minimalist look. Or add one to the office or craft room to provide extra beds for guests when you’ve got a house full.

2. Ease of Use

Contrary to some pop culture depictions, Murphy beds aren’t at all difficult to use. Our beds are counterbalanced for effortless raising and lowering. And, thanks to the Murphy bed’s unique design, you can put them away without removing the bedding. Which makes them a superior alternative to other space-saving options like sleeper sofas and air mattresses.

3. Multifunctionality

Murphy beds aren’t just handy for sleeping. With our custom designs, you can choose added features like shelving, drawers, or built-in lighting. Make the most of your space with a single piece of furniture useful for work and storage as well as rest!

4. Durability

Did you know that a quality Murphy bed can last 15 years even if you sleep in it every night? And, unlike sofa beds, which often have the mattress built in, a Murphy bed’s mattress is a separate piece. So it can be replaced when it begins to wear out.

5. Comfort

Because the mattress of a Murphy bed isn’t actually folded, they don’t get the same lumps over time as a sofa bed might. They use real mattresses, just like a traditional bed. And they come in a variety of sizes, including twin, full, and queen. Choose the mattress style that works best for you, so you and your guests can sleep in comfort.

Murphy beds are smart and stylish solutions for small spaces, guests, and multipurpose rooms. They’re versatile, easy to use, and come in a range of designs and styles that suit any décor. Contact Closet & Storage Concepts of Charlotte today to get choose one for your home!
