Keeping your small home organized, tidy, and functional doesn’t have to be difficult with a Murphy bed from Wallbeds n’ More. Our innovative wall bed furniture systems help to maximize floor space, provide bedside storage, and increase the functionality of any room.
Here are our six best pieces of advice when buying your new wall bed from Wallbeds “n” More!
1. Measure Your Room
Before you settle on one specific model of Murphy bed, consider the size and function of your space and take proper measurements. Maximize the space in a small room by working with one of our interior design specialists to plan for the best wallbed unit and placement.
Take note of which wall you’d like your Murphy bed to be mounted to, where your existing electrical outlets and windows are located, which way swinging doors open, and where closets need to be accessed. If you have a narrow space, a horizontal Murphy bed will be your best choice whereas a vertical wall bed would be more functional in rooms with more depth.
2. Focus on Functionality
When choosing your new hidden bed furniture, consider how you want your room to be used. A Murphy bed desk combination is a practical solution to creating a work from home office, while the addition of bookshelves and drawers can add storage for a craft room, playroom, or home gym.
Consider what kind of customizations you will want or need such as cabinet doors, accent lighting, USB ports, a wardrobe to provide closet space, or other storage features.
3. Know Your Price Point
For the amount of space and functionality they provide, Murphy beds are quite reasonably priced. If you have a smaller budget, you can choose to purchase a simple wall bed frame without extra additions as all of our hidden bed units are custom built.
If you would rather spend a little more in order to have your Murphy bed unit provide more than one purpose, you can opt to add bookshelves, a table, or other special features. This can be easily arranged by working with one of our space-saving experts at your local showroom.
4. Select a Comfortable Mattress
While many people think that Murphy bed mattresses are comparable to the old hide-a-bed systems of the past, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Murphy bed mattresses nowadays are just as comfortable as traditional beds because our wallbed frames actually work with real bed mattresses.
At Wallbeds “n” More you can choose your individual preference of mattress for whichever wall bed model you pick. Whether you want a firmer or softer mattress, you can try them at your local showroom and pick the one that works best for you.
5. Choose Your Sizing
Many customers wonder, “What size is a Murphy bed exactly?” but these hidden beds don’t just come in one size! At Wallbeds “n” More we offer wall beds in traditional Twin, XL Twin, Full, and Queen sizes. Each model has a specifications sheet available online that lists its Murphy bed dimensions based on mattress size and add-ons such as desks.
One tool that we offer our customers is the room planning kit, which will help you envision where to place furniture in the room. We also have Wallbeds “n” More interior designers on staff that can help you make plans for the very best-fitting hidden bed.
