Wall beds and micro space living haven’t hit mainstream status just yet, but they will soon. The world’s population has risen from 3.195 billion people in 1963 to 7.125 billion in 2013 – an average increase of 80 million people yearly – and the population is only growing larger each year. So, the question that must be asked: where are all these people going to be living?
Space, or lack thereof, is an issue that we will all eventually have to face. Fewer and fewer people are going to have the luxury of space in their homes and this is especially the case if you live in a metropolitan city that is growing daily. To combat this, architects and developers have started building and planning the construction of affordable micro lofts in cities all over the United States. Micro lofts, or micro spaces as they’re commonly called, are complexes that can carry hundreds of units at affordable prices. But, there’s a catch; the living space you get isn’t large, averaging around 300 square feet of space.
You’re not going to be able to fit much into micro space, so when it comes to choosing furniture, you need items that maximize your square footage as much as possible. This naturally begs the question; how would you find a couch, dining-room table and a bed to fit only 300 square feet of space?
It is possible to have all those regular household amenities you need in such a small space and the answer is a Murphy bed. Also known as wall beds, they not only gives you the space you need, but it also gives the overall look of your micro space a unique, luxurious touch.
Wall beds can be designed in many different styles and they can all come with visually stunning cabinetry. With help from our designers, you could even hide your wall bed inside custom cabinetry and have it linked to one of our custom closets as well.

You may be limited to a small living space, but that doesn’t mean you have to limit yourself. Cities like New York City, San Francisco and even Portland are starting to jump on the wagon and build micro-loft complexes. If you’re thinking about a savvy, space-saving move, too, take a look at our wall beds and begin taking advantage of the low-cost-of-living trend today.
