Here at Wall Beds “N” More, we are often asked: Why is a wall bed sometimes referred to as a Murphy bed? What are Murphy beds?

Well, both “Wall Bed” and “Murphy Bed” are used to refer to the same kind of space saving bed design. The name Murphy bed is sometimes used because there was once a patent for a space saving wall bed registered by William Lawrence Murphy. After Murphy’s design became popular, many companies made similar products, and the name is now in common usage.

Now that you know where the name came from, let’s take a look at some of the benefits of a Murphy Wall Bed…

Murphy Bed Design

Murphy beds are designed to fold up against a wall when you don’t need them. They keep a low profile and save space in your home, leaving room for your busy life. Because they are so easy to stow away, Murphy Wall Beds are a great way to turn your bedroom or guest room into a multipurpose room. When stowed, you can use the added space for a home gym or home office!
