What Is A Murphy Bed
A Murphy bed is a piece that can be folded up to fit into a wall of built-in cabinetry and completely disappear when you don't need it. They're ideal for mixed-use spaces, like an office/bedroom, gym/guest bedroom, theater/guest bedroom, etcetera - and they're great for occasional use sleeping areas. Such beds work well in small homes where living and sleeping spaces are conjoined and also add more flavor to your home raising the level of comfort.
Unlike futons and sofa beds, Murphy beds don't use mattresses that fold, so you can avoid those pesky bars and painful lumps. In fact, you can use your own mattress. Also, you don't have to take the sheets on and off every time you use the bed or put it away. Most of Murphy beds have a Velcro strap system and this keeps the bedding (and the mattress) in place when it is closed. And if you don't like vertical Murphy beds, you can get a side tilt configuration that opens horizontally.
When designing for Murphy beds, you should allow enough area around the folded-down bed. Keep the room's other furnishings lightweight and mobile to allow easy access to the Murphy bed.
Hardware is a key component of a Murphy bed and if it's clunky and heavy and if the hinges get easily misaligned, the bed can become dangerous to raise and lower, so choose right hardware. You also need to provide interior lighting at the bed's headboard so that you or your guests could read.
