One might think that the idea for a Murphy bed (also known as a wall bed) originated with the man it’s named after, William Murphy.
In fact, while it was Murphy’s folding bed design that became popular in the early 1900s, foldaway wall beds had actually been around in various forms for a few decades before that.
Since then, they’ve come quite a long way in terms of style, safety, and functionality. In smaller living spaces, space-saving wall beds are particularly useful.
Here are eight great benefits that custom wall beds can bring to your home.
1. Wall beds save you a lot of space
In micro-condos and tiny apartments, wall beds are essential because of how little space they take up. Even in larger living areas, a space-saving wall bed unit can be quite convenient to have.
By utilizing the unused vertical space on one of your walls, a wall bed takes up very little room and won’t be in the way when you’re not using it.
Simply pull the bed down out of the wall when you or your houseguests are ready to retire for the night. In the morning, the bed easily folds up to free up a significant portion of floor space.
2. A genuine Murphy bed is the highest quality wall bed available
Generic terms are commonly used to refer to certain types of products. For example, words like “kleenex”, “zipper”, “thermos”, and “aspirin” are used by most of us to describe similar products that may not actually bear these trademarked names. There’s a good reason that this happens.
The Murphy bed is no different. While you can find various brands of wall beds available, this unique piece of integrated furniture is most commonly known as a “Murphy bed”. That’s because of the industry leader reputation that Murphy beds have had for around a century now.
Organized Interiors only sells genuine, high quality Murphy beds. Along with a lifetime guarantee on the bed’s hardware and its durable design, a Murphy bed is also the most comfortable modern wall bed you’ll ever sleep in.
3. Enjoy the safe, ease-of-use a wall bed offers
You may be wondering how easy it is to open and close a wall bed. The innovative spring system our Murphy beds are designed with makes it very simple to open and close the bed. They’re also very safe to use.

4. A space-saving wall bed is as comfortable as a conventional bed
Rest assured that a space-saving wall bed comes with a high quality coil mattress that is every bit as comfortable as sleeping in a conventional bed.
Your houseguests will certainly appreciate the comfortable sleep they’ll experience on it. Sleeping on an air mattress, rolling cot, or pull-out sofa bed just doesn’t compare.

5. Customize your wall bed to fit your needs
Our designers can customize your wall bed to satisfy your tastes and needs, such as including a pull-out nightstand. These are some of the other custom options available:
- single, double, or queen-sized wall beds available
- can be designed as an individual unit or as part of a larger custom cabinetry unit
- various wood finishes to choose from
- open and closed storage options available (such as shelving or incorporating storage for pillows and blankets into the headboard)
- add built-in lighting for accent or reading purposes
6. Murphy beds look great and complement your home’s decor
The high level of customization that a Murphy bed comes with means our designers will be able to create a unit that nicely complements your home’s decor, whether the bed is open or closed.
A wall bed can be designed to fold up into a beautifully crafted cabinet unit that remains functional during the day while the bed isn’t needed.
7. Wall beds create a multi-purpose space in your home
Almost any room in your home will see its versatility greatly improved by becoming a multi-purpose guest room with a space-saving wall bed. In particular, your home office can easily become a cozy bedroom for houseguests by adding a wall bed.
8. Wall beds keep providing value even when you decide to move
Even when you decide to move, wall beds will keep providing value. When moving time comes, Organized Interiors can disassemble your wall bed and transport it to your new residence, where we’ll reassemble it.
Or if you decided to leave the wall bed behind when you move, its value can be factored into the resale value of your house, condo, or apartment. Don’t wait any longer when it comes to maximizing the space in your home.
