What is a Murphy Bed? What is a Wallbed? Are they the same thing?

Murphy Beds and Wallbeds are the same thing, just different names to describe them. A Murphy bed is essentially a bed frame that can be folded away against the wall to save floor space.

History of the Murphy Bed

The Murphy Bed was actually originally reportedly invented in San Francisco, to learn more, watch this video on the history or check out this fun infographic on the history of wallbeds.

Why Do You Need A Murphy Bed?

Why would you need a Murphy bed? For many of our customers, it is because they like the idea that the bed can fold away to leave them more floor space to use in their home. For others, it is that they only occasionally have guests and want to have a comfortable bed, but again, a bed that isn’t taking up space when not in use.

Murphy Bed Shopping

When we opened our first location back in 2003, we had to spend a lot of time educating the public on what a Murphy Bed was, let alone why they would need it. Since then, it’s popularity has grown and Murphy Beds are found at many large retailers around the country.

Our initial philosophy remains today…we believe in customer service first and foremost. We also believe that you need to be able to touch, feel and try your bed to find the perfect one for your home. We do show all of our beds online and you can purchase directly from your local store without meeting them, but we always love to see you in person so that you can see the quality and how easy they are to use.

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.

  • Everyone LOVES my Murphy bed (Wall bed) and desk set I got from Wallbeds n More, and so do I. It makes for a perfect guest room/office set up, allowing for a multi-use room. I worked with Judy who is a fabulous designer and so helpful.

  • 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.
