August is nearly here and it’s the time that the reality of school comes back to all of us. The biggest change is for those families sending their children to college for the first time, or those college students that have decided to find more permanent housing their second, third or fourth year of college and may not even return as frequently. This leaves many a parent’s house open, as empty nesters….or as a way to expand the use of their home!
Order a Murphy Bed Now To Arrive Before Thanksgiving Break
Now is the perfect time to be shopping for and purchasing a Murphy Bed for your home. Ordering in August or September will allow the bed to be manufactured and delivered before the Thanksgiving holidays and the return of those college students.
The majority of our Murphy Beds are manufactured in the USA (three manufacturers are right in California!) so the delivery time accounts for the custom build time required for each bed, and then shipping to your location. We do offer quick ship beds but these are limited to what each local showroom has in their inventory. It’s best to plan 5-8 weeks in advance to ensure you have plenty of time before your child returns, or your guests arrive.
Why Add a Murphy Bed in Your College Student’s Childhood Bedroom
Going off to college is your child’s first step to independence and becoming an adult. Each year they will stay longer and longer at their new life in the town their college is in and eventually they may transition there completely!
Maximizing the space of the room while your college student is out of town allows you to take back the room for specific needs that you may require, while also maintaining a place for them to sleep and have as their own when they return.
Empty Nester House Ideas
With the flexibility of a Murphy Bed, you can turn any room into a storage room, craft room, fitness room, home office, spare office / guest bedroom. The ability to have a full Queen sized bed is invaluable for guests, especially a comfortable mattress and bed! But when not in use, it can be folded away for the extra space to be used throughout the day.
