Tips for a Good Night Sleep on Your Murphy Bed

One of many reasons that so many of our customers choose a Murphy Bed is that they are so comfortable to sleep on. A good night’s sleep is the best way to start a new day (and finish processing from the previous day) so we thought you would like to see a few tips on how to ensure the best sleep in your bed, whether it’s a regular bed or a Murphy Wallbed!

Preparing for Sleep

1. Light & Electronics
The first step to a good night sleep is to actually let your body wind down from the day. Artificial lights actually affect the hormones that are responsible for regulating your sleep cycle. Even the light from cell phones and other electronics emit blue light that can inhibit melatonin production.

Get an app for your phone that cancels out the blue light to help adjust for sleep
Try to stay away from electronics for 2 hours before bedtime – spend time with family or doing an activity

2. Sleep Consistency
Maintain a consistent sleep cycle so that your body has a regularly routine to wind down each night and wake up each day. Even sleeping in on the weekend can disrupt your circadian rhythm.

3. Take Care of Your Health
Regular exercise throughout the week and daily activity help you stay healthy and also improve the quality of your sleep. What you eat and drink can also affect your sleep quality and habits.

If You Have Trouble Sleeping

If you are lying awake in bed, get up rather than continuing to lie there. You will cause increased stress and anxiety. Read a book, journal or meditate until you feel your mind has calmed down and then return to bed.

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.
