From pop culture phenomenon to space saver to innovative storage design, the Murphy bed has been a creative sleeping solution for more than a century and continues to play a vital role in homes across America.
There’s no rule for where a Murphy bed needs to be installed.
Why would there be? These beds were originally designed for tiny apartments, the type of place where a single room could serve as the living area, bedroom and even kitchen.
Even if you have a big, spacious home, a wall bed still offers an excellent space-saving tool. Here are a few ideal spaces for Murphy bed installation.
When you think of a Murphy bed, you might picture someone living in a one-room apartment, so starved for space that they tuck their bed into their wall at night.
