Murphy Beds & Storage Solutions: Space Saving Wall Beds & Ideas for Bedrooms

3 minute read, by Closet America, on May 11, 2023

Hideaway beds for small spaces, like Murphy beds, are quickly becoming the go-to storage solution for homeowners looking to maximize their storage space. Also commonly called Wall Beds, Murphy beds have actually been around for over a century, but they’ve recently been making a comeback as space is once again becoming more coveted.

When in use, Murphy beds look like any other traditional bed. However, when it’s not in use, they can be folded up and stored vertically, essentially disappearing into the wall unit built to house the bed. It takes a matter of seconds for this seamless transformation to take place, so the warmth and comforts of a bed are always conveniently available.

Murphy beds are by far one of the most popular space-saver ideas for bedrooms. Murphy beds and storage solutions like them can be a great addition to any space. Murphy beds can also be added to home offices, living rooms, game/entertainment rooms, and general multipurpose rooms. They’re also a great addition to spaces like studio apartments with very open floor plans and not much division between rooms.

The addition of a hideaway bed for a small space, like a Murphy bed, will instantly make any room multifunctional. A Murphy bed can transform what was once a guest room into an extra office that can be quickly converted back into a room to accommodate guests. With a Murphy bed, you get the best of both worlds.

Hideaway beds for small spaces can be customized in a number of ways to offer even more functionality. For example, Murphy bed designs can incorporate a desk so a bedroom can double as a home office. They can also include a wardrobe for bedrooms that don’t have much closet space, or adjustable shelving to give general storage & help you stay organized. Murphy beds and storage solutions of all types go hand in hand. Let’s take a look at two of the most popular pairings:

Murphy Beds with Desks

If you’re taking advantage of the perks of remote work but don’t have a space where you can work comfortably and productively, a Murphy bed with a desk is the space-saving solution you need. Hideaway beds for small spaces can feature L-shaped desks that double as a nightstand when the bed is lowered or “hidden” desks attached to the exterior panel that become hidden when the bed has been pulled down. We guarantee a Murphy bed with a desk will be a much better place to get your work done than the kitchen table or couch.

Murphy Beds with Wardrobes

When the bed is hidden away, a Murphy bed with a wardrobe looks like any other traditional wardrobe and blends into a room seamlessly. These kinds of Murphy beds are one of the best space-saver ideas for bedrooms that don’t have much closet space. This is because clothing and accessories can be stored in the wardrobe attached to the wall unit that hides the bed. Wardrobe Murphy beds are also great for multipurpose rooms that need to turn into guest rooms when you have family or friends staying with you.
