If you’re too young to know what a Murphy bed is, you might be missing a great, space-saving option for creating an extra bed for guests.
A Murphy bed folds up vertically against a wall when not in use. Today’s versions, also known as wall beds or panel beds, actually look like cabinetry when folded up and put back in place against the wall. Houzz reports that queries for queen Murphy beds jumped over 2000% in the recent past as homeowners look for ways to have more flexibility with a home’s existing footprint. For a look at today’s most popular Murphy and wall/panel beds, see these options on Houzz and The Spruce. The Philadelphia Inquirer also recently profiled a local couple who installed a custom Murphy bed in their home office. Because they’re portable, a Murphy bed can help expand your guest bed options today – and in the future if you move to a different home.
