Why Buy A Murphy Bed?

Considering buying a Fold Away bed, also known as a Murphy bed for your home? If so, you aren’t alone - Murphy beds have become increasingly popular over the years. But with endless options on the market, it can be difficult to decide which Murphy bed is the best purchase option for you. Here are the things to consider before buying the perfect Murphy bed for your home.

What is a Murphy Bed?

Murphy beds are a great way to maximize space in a room. Because they fold up, they easily create flow and function for a room, while giving yourself or guests a comfy place to sleep.

Murphy beds offer numerous benefits to homeowners and renters, including:

Save Space: Live in a home with only one bedroom? Or perhaps you live in a studio or small apartment? A Murphy bed is the perfect choice for creating and saving space within your home, while also giving guests a place to sleep when they visit. And because they fold upwards, you give yourself a lot of extra space to use as an exercise area, office, playroom, or anything you want!

Multifunctional: One of the best things about a Murphy bed is they aren’t just a bed. They can also be a bookshelf during the day, or a place to store things. This ends up helping you to reduce clutter and keep things organized (which is really important especially if you have limited storage space).

Things To Consider Before Purchasing Your Murphy Bed

Before making your Murphy bed purchase, the most important thing to do is make sure your Murphy bed will fit into your room. Measuring is a crucial part of the buying process, and it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. We’ve listed below a few things to keep in mind when measuring for your bed:

  1. Ceiling Height: Make sure to measure the height of your ceiling from the ground up, this way you can be certain that your Murphy bed will fit into the room.

  2. Lighting Fixtures/Ceiling Fans: Do you have ceiling fans overhead? If so, you’ll want to ensure the Murphy bed height doesn’t interfere with the fan.

  3. Doorway Location: Make note of where your doors are located and how far they swing open. This also includes closet doors.

  4. Windowless Walls: Do you have windowless walls in the room? Your Murphy bed should be placed against the wall without windows.

  5. Electrical Outlets: Make note of where the electrical outlets are located, so that the bed isn’t limiting access to them.

  6. Low Profile Heater Vents: It’s generally a good idea to ensure the area where you place your Murphy bed isn’t blocking any vents due to fire hazards.
