Wallbeds Are Designed for Sleeping

A wallbed is a piece of furniture that has a bed built into it in a way that you can still take advantage of all of the space inside of a room. Whenever you do not need to use the bed, you can easily put it up into the wall and have more room for your custom home office, workout room, or all of your hiking and biking equipment. Wallbeds are easy to use and come with a comfortable mattress that would be found on any other kind of bed. Once your guests sleep on a wallbed, they will realize just how happy you are to have them staying with you.

Sofa Beds Are Designed for Sitting

Although sofa beds do offer some convenience, they are not usually the most comfortable option for a home. They are big and bulky, which make them difficult to move without the help of at least two other people. When the bed is folded up into the sofa, it might make it difficult to sit down and find a really comfortable position. It can also be tricky to open up the bed and put it back inside the sofa after your guests leave.

When it comes to wallbeds versus sofa beds, wallbeds have the advantage. Come to Wallbeds “n” Moretoday to see how comfortable, stylish, and convenient Murphy beds are, especially when they are compared to sofa beds.

What Happy Customers Say

  • I have had the pleasure of doing business at the Costa Mesa Wallbeds and More on two separate occasions. I was invited to visit the store by appointment which assured me Roger’s full attention and respect for my time. I was able to ask questions and see a demonstration of how to open and close the beds. We discussed what I could expect from the delivery and installation personnel. Roger was outgoing and helpful in every way. The pieces I bought are comfortable, attractive, and a great solution to space issues.

  • We were so happy to find a wall bed place so close to home – from the moment I called to ask questions to the time we went and looked and bought the staff and everyone involved was wonderful. The time it took to get it and the delivery and set up was wonderful. I would do it again.
