We all need to sleep, but beds take up a lot of space, and during the day it can be frustrating not to have room for work or hobbies. The answer to this is the Murphy bed. Murphy beds—or wall beds—are the ultimate space-saving furniture. They make any room multipurpose, so you don’t have to hide your hobbies away. Read on for some of the things you can do with the space your Murphy bed saves.

Home Gym

Whether you work out daily, or just like to get a few reps in now and then, a home gym is a great option for anyone who’d like to be a little more active. Fold your Murphy bed away and roll out the yoga mat or grab the weights to make use of all that open space. Bonus, you’ll save on a gym membership!


Kids need a lot of space to run and play. Use a Murphy bed to make room! Contain play space to the bedroom and save yourself the trouble of cleaning toys out of the family room. It gives children a space that can be all their own for tea parties, matchbox car races, or anything else their imagination can conjure.

Home Library

Book lovers know just how quickly the volumes can pile up. Make a bedroom a library with built-in shelving and a custom Murphy bed that can hold a few of your books too!

Laundry Station

If you don’t have a large laundry room, making space to sort and fold clothes may be easier said than done. Unless you have a Murphy bed. Combine one with a fold-down table and make laundry a breeze.

Craft Room

Keep the guest room and the craft room, even in an apartment. Give yourself a hobby space for sewing, painting, and other crafts, then fold the Murphy bed down when friends or family need a place to sleep.

This list is just a small selection of ideas. Whatever you use your home for, a Murphy bed can make the space work.
