Planning Your Murphy Bed


Working with a professional designer will help ease the planning process and any nerves.  Your designer will help you analyze the space of the room including the dimensions, like the height and width of the wall in question.  During this process, you’ll determine the purpose of the bedroom and most effective layout – whether it is as an office by day, and a quiet meditation room by night or a multi-functional living room that transforms into a bedroom or flex room.


The next priority when designing your Murphy Bed is the size and type of bed you’ll want for the installation.  A wall bed can be adjusted to fit any sized bed for a room of any size – it is entirely at your discretion.  Do you want a twin, bunk, queen or king-sized beds?


Your designer will also advise you on the different types of devices that you may select – whether it is a piston or spring.  A piston typically uses air pressure that provides support when raising and lowering the wall bed.  Springs usually are the more traditional type and use compressed steel in its functionality concealed within the bed frame.


As with most closet and storage organizational systems, there are many styles to choose from including modern and traditional styles.  Your designer will help you determine the style that best suits your needs and complements your home.  A modern design may integrate desks, tables, and shelving to add multiple purposes to the room.


Your designer can offer any Murphy bed option to fit your budget and provide an estimate during a free consultation.  During the visit, a professional designer can effectively analyze the space, determine your needs and offer styling options that suit your distinct tastes.  The primary goal of the consultation is to develop a plan of action that is affordable and provides a stylish, yet effective wall bed solution that keeps your home smart, organized and comfortable.
