Murphy Bed Ideas: A Classic That Never Goes Out Of Style

Some things just never go out of style and the Murphy bed is more essential today than ever before.

Today’s Murphy beds are comfortable, reliable, and can be found in upscale condos and houses and beautifully add a stylish, modern touch to your home’s décor.

7 things you need to know about Murphy beds

William Murphy’s wall bed design has been around for well over a century. Modern enhancements and improvements have made this traditional concept a must-have for any home.

Let’s look at seven Murphy bed attributes that show why this classic piece of furniture remains so appealing.

1. Murphy beds are a classic brand for a reason

There’s a reason most wall beds are commonly referred to as “Murphy beds”, even if they’re not the Murphy brand. The Murphy name is associated as much with wall beds as Kleenex is with tissues, Band-Aid is for bandages, and Google is for online searches.

All of these brand names are used as shorthand to describe even their competitor’s products because in some cases they invented the product, they perfected the product, and they became market leaders.

All wall beds are not created equal, however. A DIY wall bed kit might save some cost, but DIY wall beds fall well short of a customized authentic Murphy bed in five important areas:

  • ease of use: the spring-based mechanism makes the bed easy to open and close
  • one-finger operation: the patented rotational leg and crossbar is smooth and no-fuss
  • reliability: the lightweight Supreme Steel hardware system carries a 25-year warranty
  • safety: the counterbalanced system means it stays closed
  • peace of mind: custom Murphy beds installed by Organized Interiors’ trained installation team mean a high quality, long-lasting custom bed that you or your guests can confidently use every day

When Organized Interiors talks about Murphy beds, we are describing the genuine article, as we use hardware by Murphy Wall Beds of Canada for every wall bed we make.

2. Murphy beds are ideal for small living spaces

Between consumers being more mindful of reducing their carbon footprint, embracing a more minimalist lifestyle, and responding to high real estate prices, small space living is more popular than ever.

Whether you’re a middle-aged professional who’s downsized to a smaller home, a millennial living in a studio apartment, or a family who hosts guests, a Murphy bed was made just for you.

Their pulldown design means Murphy beds take up very little room and can be put away during the day when not in use.  When space is really at a premium in a small home, a wall bed is virtually a must-have piece of furniture to own.

3. Murphy beds are big space savers

Even if your living space isn’t small, Murphy beds are great at saving space in a room.

Freeing up floor space allows for more space to move within the room and even makes vacuuming the room easier. Any other use for a room, such as a craft room, fitness area, kids playroom or home office, can incorporate a Murphy bed design that lets you also use it as a guest room. It’s all about maximizing the functionality of your home!

Murphy beds are ideal when you only need to periodically host guests, but wish to have a room available for more common uses. When it’s needed, simply pull the bed down and you and your guests are ready for a good night’s sleep.

4. Murphy beds are more than just a pulldown bed

Organized Interiors’ customized wall beds are functional, but also stylish and visually appealing. In fact, we’re confident you’ll find that they nicely enhance any room’s appearance with custom finishes and design features that beautifully complement your décor.

Even though a Murphy bed takes up less floor space, it can actually add useful storage space to a room. This integrated piece of furniture can have storage above, behind, and to the sides of the bed unit. Turn a home library into a book lover’s oasis.

Choosing a Murphy bed that you can have customized gives you many more options for sizes, finishes, decorative hardware, and other features.

5. A Murphy bed is the easiest-to-open wall bed

The ease of use with a Murphy bed can depend on what type of wall bed you buy.

Murphy beds are hands-down the easiest wall bed to open and close. From the lightweight steel frame to the spring-balanced mechanism, the high-quality hardware used on proper Murphy beds makes opening and closing them simple and quick.

Interior designer Jane Lockhart demonstrates in the video below how easy-peasy it is to open and close an Organized Interiors Murphy bed:

6. Murphy beds can be your everyday bed

In small spaces such as open-concept condos, the ability to put your bed away every morning is essential. Murphy’s hardware and Organized Interiors’ cabinet construction can withstand everyday use, so you can get the most out of a small space.

Effective design allows you to create a furniture piece that means when your bed is closed, it doesn’t have to feel like you’re in your bedroom. And when the bed is lowered, it doesn’t have to feel like you’re sleeping in your living room or office.

A Murphy bed doesn’t require a boxspring, but the bed door comfortably supports a proper mattress for everyday comfort.

Which brings us to…

7. Murphy beds are super comfortable to sleep on

Murphy beds use real, high-quality coil mattresses that are every bit as comfortable to sleep on as a conventional bed. You may have your own mattress you would like to use already, or Organized Interiors can supply one with your custom Murphy bed purchase.

Foam mattresses are not recommended, including some of the trendy bargain mattresses that are all the rage online. Their construction is not suited to a wall bed application, as they often don’t have the structural integrity for being stored on their sides when the bed is closed.

We use mattresses that are approved for use in a Murphy bed, providing years of comfort for you and your guests. The only drawback is maybe your guests won’t want to leave!

3 Creative Bedroom Storage Furniture Ideas to Lighten Your Closet’s Load

bedroom storage furniture ideas bed surround

The key component in keeping an organized bedroom is to have a closet space that’s well-designed and highly functional.

A well-managed closet can keep clutter from spilling out into the rest of the bedroom, but a closet won’t always be able to handle all of your wardrobe storage needs.

That’s when it’s time to consider some bedroom storage furniture ideas to help lighten the load in your closet a little.

Bedroom storage furniture ideas you may not have considered

Perhaps you’re looking for some supplemental storage systems for the bedroom for the following reasons:

  • your bedroom closet is too small
  • you own too many clothes and can’t find the time to properly thin out your wardrobe
  • you want to make better use of the storage space in your bedroom

A dresser and nightstand/bedside table are some obvious examples of bedroom storage furniture most of us use.

If you’re looking for some additional outside-the-closet bedroom storage furniture ideas to keep things tidy, here are a few outside-the-box suggestions.

1. Bed surround

When it comes to adding extra non-closet storage space to a bedroom, it’s hard to beat a bed surround.

This versatile piece of furniture gets somewhat overlooked when homeowners are considering the best bedroom storage furniture ideas.

Here’s why a bed surround is worthy of your consideration when you’re looking for smart ways to furnish your bedroom:

  • maximizes your bedroom storage space
  • provides a comfortable sleeping space
  • adds a stylish decorative touch to a bedroom

Let’s start with the valuable underbed storage a bed surround provides. The integrated storage drawers are perfect for things like out-of-season clothing, pillows, and blankets. And unlike a traditionally open underbed storage space, all your belongings will stay clean and dust bunny-free.

Bed surrounds can also include everything from nightstands, a headboard with cabinets and shelving storage, and even a custom wardrobe (or two).

And with a bespoke bed surround design, everything from the drawer sizes, shelf widths and depths, lighting placement, finishes, and any other available features can be customized for you.

2. Wardrobe

A wardrobe (also known as an “armoire”) is another smart solution to turn to when you need more bedroom storage. The beauty of a wardrobe is that it can fit anywhere there’s free space in a bedroom.

Some people are under the impression that a wardrobe is little more than a furniture enclosure with an extra hanging rod or two, along with a shelf.

While it does function as an extension of your closet for clothes hanging space, a wardrobe can do so much more. Many of the useful accessories and features that make a closet organization system so effective can be added, too. Examples include:

  • full-length mirror
  • drawers with dividers
  • pullout shoe rack
  • a valet rod, tie/scarf rack, and decorative hooks

Wardrobes are a great storage option if you’re finding a shared closet space too frustrating to maintain with your partner. Create a separate storage space for one of you by adding a wardrobe to your bedroom.

Bedrooms aren’t the only room in a home where a wardrobe can be added, either. They’re ideal for a playroom, storage room, guest room, or any room without adequate (or any) closet space.

And just like a bed surround, going the custom route for the wardrobe you’re buying allows you to personalize the design to suit your needs, both functionally and aesthetically. With decorative touches like metal grill or glass doors, crown moulding, and stylish door and drawer pulls, a bespoke wardrobe becomes a beautiful furniture display piece.

3. Wall bed

You might not think of a wall bed when you’re considering bedroom storage furniture ideas, but it might actually be perfect for your needs.

A wall bed’s clever design is all about space-saving and nothing occupies more floor space in a bedroom than a bed. Wouldn’t it be nice to reclaim the floor space a bed takes up when you don’t need it?

Wall beds (also known as “Murphy beds”) conveniently fold up into a stylish cabinet when they’re not being used. That makes them ideal for guest rooms, micro-condos, or any room where space is limited.

You could also optimize your available space by creating a multi-purpose room that functions occasionally as a guest room and as a home office the rest of the time.

And we’re not including wall beds on this list of creative bedroom storage furniture ideas just because the bed itself can be stored away.

A custom wall bed can also incorporate surrounding drawer and cabinet storage, to really expand your bedroom storage options.

9 Great Ideas to Revitalize Your Spare Room

sewing room, spare room
Having a spare room in a house is something that’s viewed by most homeowners as a luxury.

In reality, having an extra room in the home that lacks much purpose can end up becoming a hassle.

These rooms typically become catch-all storage spaces (also known as “dumping grounds”) for other items that can’t find a home elsewhere in your home.

Sure, that means your home’s other rooms might have less clutter. Spare rooms will get filled quickly, however, particularly because they’re such an available and convenient storage space.

After a few years, the room can turn into a disorganized mess that will become one big, long decluttering project you’ll need to eventually confront.

Find a higher purpose for your spare room

While we all need to store things in our home, a spare room could be used for a lot more than just storing boxes and junk. This little-used room can be revitalized to give it more purpose and functionality.

Why not create a useful space that can benefit the whole family?

Maybe you and your spouse are recent empty nesters. If so, that’s even more reason to treat yourself to a dedicated room that enhances your lifestyle and accommodates your interests.

Here are nine great spare room ideas to help you get the most out of this underused space.

1. Home entertainment room

Whether your family is big or small, a dedicated room for enjoying movies, TV shows, and video games in the most comfortable setting possible makes great use of a spare room.

A 4K home theatre projector with a projection screen and surround sound system will nicely simulate the experience of going to the movie theatre (without the crowds and high concession stand prices).

Or go with a big screen TV set within a custom entertainment centre that can also hold all of your media devices and other audio/video components.

Depending on where the entertainment room is located in the home and how loud it might get in there, installing acoustic panels to reduce noise might be wise.

Add a big sofa, some recliners, and maybe even a small bar to round out the room’s design. Your spare room can now be used as the ultimate space for hosting movie nights and sporting events for family, friends, and neighbours.

2. Mudroom

If your spare room is near an entryway in your home, creating a mudroom might just be the best use for it. Shoes, umbrellas, jackets, and other outwear can all have a proper home using hooks, shoe racks, and other organizing solutions.

This functional transitional space between your home’s inside and the outdoors has a lot of benefits:

  • you’ll keep your home’s entryway area more organized
  • keeps wet jackets and dirt and mud tracked in from outside in a contained, easy-to-maintain area
  • add custom cabinetry for extra functional home storage space

3. Dressing room/large walk-in closet

If you’re constantly struggling to manage your bedroom closet space, there’s no better solution to your closet woes than a bespoke dressing room (also known as a large walk-in closet).

A spare room is perfectly suited for this purpose and makes managing your wardrobe much easier. With a spacious dressing room, you’ll be able to find items of clothing effortlessly. This will result in less time spent searching for misplaced items (and possibly making duplicate purchases).

In addition to its storage benefits, a luxurious dressing room also gives you a private space that you can customize to your tastes. Here are a few ideas of what you could add:

  • a comfy chair or stylish bench with hidden storage space
  • full-length mirrors
  • a makeup table
  • an island with storage drawers
  • relaxing lighting

An underused spare room can be turned into a spacious dressing room/large walk-in closet that’s stylish and functional.

4. Kids playroom

If you have youngsters in the house, you know how much of a challenge it can be trying to keep their toys and belongings organized.

That’s why turning a spare room into a kids playroom is a very practical idea. A kids playroom gives your children a dedicated space to play, which should help keep the rest of your home a little tidier.

Add a kids worktable for arts and crafts projects and paint the walls with a colour (such as a shade of red) that helps stimulate their creativity.

If your children have sleepovers frequently with their friends, a kids playroom could also incorporate a space-saving wall bed.

5. Home office

A spare room that you barely spend any time in and is only used to collect clutter is as far from being a productive area in your home as it gets.

You can change that by turning a spare room into a highly productive home office.

More and more companies are giving their employees the option to work from home on a full-time or part-time basis. A home office that’s professional designed can help you get the most productivity out of the space.

A home office also has other valuable uses. It can be used as a quiet room to work on your taxes or catch up on your email replies or your kids can use it as a private study space.

6. Guest room

If you regularly have overnight guests staying in your home, turning your spare room into a guest room makes a lot of sense.

You can have a room that’s always ready to accommodate guests, without having to come up with makeshift sleeping arrangements that aren’t always comfortable for visitors.

The centrepiece of your guest room makeover can be a pulldown murphy bed that’s every bit as comfortable as a traditional bed. A murphy bed’s biggest benefit is that it stays hidden until it’s needed, which frees up space in your guest room.

A guest room could also be combined with a small home office space to give you a room with dual functionality.

7. Fitness room

If driving several times a week to the gym to work out is getting old, turn your spare room into a fitness room.

The convenience of having a fitness room at home can help keep you motivated to stay fit, which is a great way to relieve stress.

You can also tailor a home fitness room to your workout needs, whether it’s yoga, strength training, cardio, or hitting a punching bag that’s your exercise method of choice. Add the exercise equipment you need and a small TV screen or sound system to accompany your workouts.

A fitness room at home can pay for itself in a few years with the money you’ll save on annual gym membership fees (which can cost more than you might think).

8. Wine room

If you’re a wine connoisseur, is your growing wine collection in need of more storage space? Perhaps your wine collection has never had a proper home and is being stored on wine racks in your basement or living room.

The perfect solution is to turn your spare room into a dedicated wine room or a walk-in closet wine cellar.

Have your dream wine storage system customized to your spare room and wine storage needs. If space allows, a dedicated wine storage room can also incorporate design features that allow you to use the room as a space for entertaining guests.

You could also complement your custom wine cabinetry with stylish bar cabinetry to house the rest of your libations and spirits.

If you’re a wine collector, convert your spare room into a wine cellar that also functions as a wine tasting room.

9. Craft room

If you’re the creative type, one of the best uses for a spare room would be to turn it into a space that can bring out the best in your creativity.

This could be in the form of a craft room, sewing room, music room, or art studio that allows you to enjoy such hobbies as:

  • sewing and knitting
  • scrapbooking
  • playing an instrument
  • painting and drawing
  • ceramics
  • model building
  • horticulture
  • gift wrapping

A room meant solely for your creative interests gives you privacy and lets you conveniently resume working on a project whenever you have free time. Studies also show that creative activities improve your mood and help to clear your mind.

Transform your spare room into something beautiful

Organized Interiors has lots of experience when it comes to transforming underused spare rooms into beautiful and functional spaces.

How to Choose the Right Decorative Hardware for Cabinets

New custom cabinetry makes a world of difference in how a room looks and functions.

The creation of a home office, a dressing room, a new closet, or any other project involving custom cabinets requires a lot of decisions to be made about what will be included in the design of the cabinets.

Choosing the right decorative hardware for cabinets that are part of your home improvement project is just one of those many decisions.

decorative hardware for cabinets pulls

Decorative hardware for cabinets: why finishing details matter

The type of decorative hardware used with your custom cabinetry might seem like a minor detail in relation to the wider scope of what may be a big project. But you can be sure, every detail matters when you’re having something designed that you’ll be using and looking at every day.

The decorative hardware for cabinets you choose will be right there, front and centre, on the finished product. The right choices of cabinet knobs, pulls, and hooks can add character to a room, in subtle or more pronounced ways.

Poorly chosen decorative hardware, on the other hand, can have a similarly negative effect on the visual appeal of a room. Your decorative hardware choices also put a personalized stamp on your custom cabinetry.

So exactly how do you make smart choices when it comes to decorative hardware for cabinets? Here are a few tips.

Give yourself plenty of options

Psychologist Barry Schwartz’s 2004 book The Paradox of Choice argues that having an abundance of choice is a bad thing. We think he couldn’t be more wrong, at least when it comes to having custom cabinets designed.

The whole point of choosing custom cabinetry over a big box store’s limited selection of off-the-shelf furniture is that you get the ability to have it designed to your needs (and let’s not overlook its higher quality, either).

A key element of that customization includes choosing your decorative hardware.

The more decorative hardware choices you’re presented with, the better chance you’ll have of finding the perfect hardware accessories to beautifully accentuate your custom cabinetry or closet space.

An abundance of choice with custom-built products brings you that much closer to complete satisfaction with the finished product.

Organized Interiors knows the benefits and importance of giving our customers plenty of decorative hardware for cabinets options. Our showroom has hundreds of samples of the industry’s best designer decorative hardware, including the largest selection of Richelieu decorative hardware in the GTA.

Complement your bespoke cabinetry and home décor

In addition to complementing your bespoke cabinetry, having a wealth of decorative hardware options has other benefits.

Cabinets that are designed to your specifications also make it easier to complement your home’s décor and its flow from room to room. Regardless of whether a room’s style is classic, contemporary, or transitional, there’s a decorative hardware style available to effectively complement and enhance any room’s look.

Should you go with a trendier style of decorative hardware that might not be as pleasing to you several years from now? Does your room’s existing décor style make the choice more obvious?

How about hardware sizes (meaning how prominent of a role do you want your knobs or pulls to play in the cabinets’ profile)? How much of your own signature do you want to put on your bespoke cabinetry?

There are many questions to consider when making your decision about decorative hardware for cabinets, so be sure to leverage the expertise of a knowledgeable professional.

Get a hands-on experience

A big part of your research when choosing decorative hardware should include getting a hands-on experience with it.

The tactile experience of sampling potential pulls, knobs, and hooks you’ll be touching every day will give you a more personal connection to them.

An up-close sampling of important factors like the hardware’s comfort and functionality will give you a better sense as to whether they’re the right choice for your custom cabinetry or closet.

Does a weathered, rustic finish on a brass pull feel nicer to the touch than a smoother polished chrome finish? Maybe the feel of an antique glass knob compared to a metal knob with a satin nickel finish is more to your personal taste. Which size of pull or knob feels more comfortable?

Actually touching the hardware will also give you an idea of what kind of quality your product has. Organized Interiors’ decorative hardware collection is manufactured to strict quality guidelines and features hardware created by world-renowned designers.

We actually call it Artware. Why? Well, we felt the hardware was so beautiful that calling it “art” only seemed fitting!

And there’s one more great reason to get an up-close view of the decorative hardware you’re considering – you’ll get a better idea of how it looks than you will from a picture on a computer screen or from a catalog book.

Top 7 Canadian Wines You Need To Try

Canadian wines in a wine cellar
When you think of the countries who produce some of the world’s finest wines, names like Italy, France, Spain, and Portugal immediately come to mind.

Canadian wines may not have the history or prestige that the top winemakers from those countries have, but we do produce many outstanding varieties of wine. Obviously, Canadian icewines are now world-renowned.

Here are a few interesting facts about the Canadian wine industry:

  • Canada and Germany are the world’s largest icewine producers
  • approximately 75% of Canada’s icewine is produced in Ontario
  • in 2016, Canadian bottled wine exports were valued at $34.7 million (icewine accounted for 55% of that)
  • the wine and grape industry is responsible for more than 37,000 Canadian jobs
  • between 2011 and 2015, the national economic impact of the Canadian wine industry grew from $6.8 billion to $9 billion (a 33% increase)

7 Canadian wines that won’t disappoint

Clearly, our wine industry is robust and Canadian wines are receiving more and more international attention for their high quality.

We thought we’d spotlight just a few of the fine Canadian wines you owe it to yourself to try at least once.

2012 Limestone Vineyard Pinot NoirRedstone Winery

Ontario’s Redstone Winery was named Winery of the Year at the 2017 WineAlign National Wine Awards of Canada. That’s an impressive achievement for one of the relatively newer Canadian wineries.

Redstone’s sustainably farmed 38-acre estate vineyard in Beamsville (located between Hamilton and St. Catharines) produces award-winning Chardonnays, Rieslings, and Rosés.

Last month’s issue of Vintages magazine recommended Redstone’s 2012 Limestone Vineyard Pinot Noir ($25), citing its “elegant floral, raspberry, and wood spice notes”.

2014 Reserve MerlotMission Hill Family Estate Winery

B.C.’s Mission Hill Family Estate Winery helped put Canada on the international wine map when they took home the Best Chardonnay in the World award at the 1993 International Wine & Spirit Competition.

More recently, their 2011 Martin’s Lane Pinot Noir won the top award in the under £15 category at 2013’s Decanter World Wine Awards. Even more impressive is the fact they were competing against 14,000 other wines. That same year, Mission Hill was named the Canadian Winery of the Year at the National Wine Awards.

Earlier this year, respected Canadian wine publication Vintage Assessments recommended Mission Hill’s 2014 Reserve Merlot ($30).

2014 Okanagan Riesling IcewineInniskillin Wines

Inniskillin Wines, Ontario’s first icewine maker, is Canada’s largest icewine maker and exporter. Based in Niagara-on-the-Lake with a second winery in B.C., Inniskillin might be best known for their superb icewines, but icewines actually only account for about 10% of the winery’s annual output,

One of the most internationally well-known Canadian wineries, Inniskillin also attracts more than 250,000 tourists to their wineries each year.

Icewine lovers can’t go wrong with Inniskillin’s 2014 Okanagan Riesling Icewine ($53). It was a Silver Medal Winner at last year’s WineAlign National Wine Awards of Canada.

Burrowing Owl 2014 Cabernet SauvignonBurrowing Owl Estate Winery

Burrowing Owl Estate Winery was started in 1993 in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley wine region.

Considered one of the leading Canadian wine wineries, Burrowing Owl Estate recently picked up awards for several of their 2014-2016 vintages at the 2017 National Wine Awards of Canada.

One of those award-winning wines is Burrowing Owl’s 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon ($46).

2012 Cuvée Catharine Estate Blanc de BlancHenry of Pelham Winery

Henry of Pelham Winery produced their first vintage in 1988, in the early days of Niagara’s wine production. The winery produces an assortment of well-regarded red and white wines, as well as various icewines.

Toronto Life magazine praised their 2015 Chardonnay Estate ($20) as “one of the LCBO’s best bottles of Ontario wine”. Just last week, the Toronto Star spotlighted the winery’s 2015 Henry of Pelham Speck Family Reserve Baco Noir ($25) on a list of recommended wines for Easter dinner.

Sparkling wines are another award-winning specialty of the winery. Henry of Pelham’s 2012 Cuvée Catharine Estate Blanc de Blanc ($45) was a Gold Award winner at the 2017 All Canadian Wine Championships.

2015 Boswell SyrahQuails’ Gate Winery

Founded in 1956, B.C.’s Quails’ Gate Winery produces more than 50,000 cases of wine each year and is one of the most well-known Canadian wineries.

At the 2017 National Wine Awards of Canada, Quails’ Gate was named sixth on a list of Canada’s top 25 wineries.
Five Quails’ Gate wines also collected awards.

A November 2017 Globe and Mail article also singled out the winery’s 2015 Boswell Syrah ($55) as one of B.C.’s top red wines.

2015 Small Lot Wood Post RieslingThirty Bench Wine Makers

Celebrating its 25th anniversary next year, Thirty Bench Wine Makers is another Niagara-area winemaker receiving great acclaim for their premium wines. Here are a few recent awards they’ve received:

  • runner-up as Canada’s top winery at the 2017 National Wine Awards of Canada
  • Thirty Bench winemaker Emma Garner named “Winemaker of the Year” at 2015’s Ontario Wine Awards
  • “Best Performing Small Winery in Canada” award at 2015 National Wine Awards of Canada

Thirty Bench’s award-winning 2015 Small Lot Wood Post Riesling ($30) is one big reason for the winery’s popularity and high regard among Canadian wines.

Store the finest Canadian wines in style

If you’re someone who appreciates some of the top Canadian wines, you’re clearly someone who appreciates the finer things in life.

And fine wine deserves to be stored in the highest quality custom wine cabinetry available. Organized Interiors specializes in wine cabinetry designs that provide a stylish home for wine collections of all sizes.
