They are functional pieces of furniture that can be a cabinet by day and a bed at night. Our customers often ask us on the right time to have a chest bed at home. Here are some of the most common reasons why this bed is a good investment.

Additional Storage Options

Murphy beds are great for additional storage options. People often find it hard to fit as many things as possible in a bedroom. Chest beds can efficiently maximize space, where extra blankets, pillows, cushions and more can be neatly tucked in.

Easy to Use

A lot of people think that Murphy beds are complicated to use. However, we can tell you that this is a common misunderstanding. Most chest beds are relatively easy to set up and tuck away. They are easy to access, which makes them a great option for home offices whenever you need to take a break from work or studying.

Stylish and Trendy

Another misconception that most people have is that Murphy beds are so 70's. Chest beds have evolved to stylish, modern, and functional pieces of furniture that many trendy spaces consider a must-have. More and more apartments and studio-type condos are on the rise, and you need something that will help you move around easily without sacrificing comfort at night.

King vs Queen Size Beds: Which One is Right for You?

Choosing whether to get a king or queen size bed is not a simple question of size. If that’s the case, then the king size bed, with its larger body, would be the clear cut choice. It is important to make an informed decision when selecting a bed because this bed will be your and your family’s companion every night. To help you decide, below is a quick comparison of the two.

King Size Beds
Size: 76 x 80 inches

A King size bed is considered as the more comfortable choice for couples. If you are a newlywed or someone who’s upgrading to a master’s bedroom, then this is definitely a viable option. However, with its room size requirement of 10 x 14 feet, you will definitely a bigger space. It is important to consider that aside from the bed’s size, you need at least two inches around the bed for the walkway; and this is not yet including the furniture.

Still, setting aside the required space and apparent higher cost of the bed, mattress, and sheets, a king size bed is definitely great for couples to sleep soundly and comfortably every night.

Queen Size Beds
Size: 60 x 80 inches

The main reason why queen size beds continue to sell like hotcakes in the U.S. is because of its versatility. Originally, it is meant to be the ideal bed of one person. With its ample space, you can already sleep comfortably and roll around with pillows on both sides. Nowadays, it is also being used by couples who are living in apartments or those who have bedrooms smaller than a master room.

In short, the queen size bed is a luxury for one person and a practical and budget choice for couples.

Is a Murphy Bed Like a Regular Bed?

Here at Wallbeds n More, we are often asked the difference between a Murphy Bed and a regular bed. In a way, a real distinction between the two would have to be the form, since wallbeds are generally foldable and built for space saving. Other than that, given the wide options to choose from, a Murphy Bed is a normal bed.

Questions on Comfort

Before, Murphy Beds were known as the smart choice, not the comfortable one. This is understandable given that there were limited options in the past. Now, more and more are switching to wallbeds because of the incredibly wider options to choose from. In fact, a ton of our customers can attest that a Murphy Bed provides the same or even more level of comfort than the traditional box bed. The choice of mattress greatly helps, and modern day wallbeds can be even more versatile in supporting most kinds.

Everyday Setup

Aside from comfort, this is the biggest concern that non-wallbed users have. This is again understandable since before, wallbeds were clunky and difficult to assemble and store away. Now, folding it up and down is as easy as fixing a normal bed. Most Murphy Beds nowadays are made of lighter material and more ergonomic design to help its users use it anytime of the day without breaking a sweat.

In fact, you don’t have to replace the sheets and blankets or store pillows away because most wallbeds have straps to keep them in place. They are so easy to use that even kids and seniors won’t have any problem with them.

Life Span

Will a Murphy Bed last as long as a regular bed? Our answer is a big “yes.” It can even outlive a traditional bed! Many people consider a wallbed as an investment and great value for money because its use extends beyond being a guest bed. It can double as a bed for offices or working areas or as an additional storage option or desk.

How to Make a Comfortable Office at Home

Whether you’re a student, professional, entrepreneur, or hobbyist, having a working area at home can definitely help in your productivity and development. The problem in having one, however, is learning how to balance the comforts of home and the discipline of work in one area. Below are some quick and easy tips for you to get started in case you are in the mood for fixing an old room, basement, or garage.

Utilize Mirrors, Windows, and Light Source

First, consider your light source. It is extremely beneficial to the room’s atmosphere if there will be one or two windows for natural light. From there, you can position your table near or parallel the window; just be careful of your computer screen catching glare. Next, you can position your mirrors in a way that it will bounce the natural light all over the room. A common mistake is having a mirror reflect the dark areas or reveal the clutter in the room.

Of course, you still need light sources other than the window. Try to play around with different designs of table lamps instead of going for all the way overhead house lighting.

Have Fun Organizing!

One of the biggest problems when working at home is getting lost in the clutter of papers, equipment, and other materials. On the other hand, you wouldn’t want a place with filing cabinets, dividers, and drawers that resemble a cubicle. We recommend that you take a look at wall storage first, and then have fun looking around for colorful and efficiently built shelves.

If you’re planning to double a work and sleeping area, you can also try Murphy Beds that can be customized with shelves.

Get a Desk AND a Bed.

Murphy beds are great for transforming spaces into multi-functional rooms. Best of all, their designs are made for saving space without sacrificing comfort, utility, and aesthetics! You can have a Murphy Desk Bed installed so you can “crash” in your very office at night or when you’re pulling an all-nighter.

How to Fit Guests Inside the House During the Holidays

As what we always say here in Wallbeds n More, the holidays are coming… And so are your relatives. It’s not that you don’t want your extended family around. We just understand your worry of having to welcome them inside without making anyone feel uncomfortable. Whether it’s because of the lack of rooms or the small space, below are some ideas on how you can get ready for your next holiday guests.

Ready the Blankets and Pillows.

The first thing you have to consider as the host or hostess is comfort. Wherever they will sleep, a set of fluffy pillows, crisp and clean sheets, and cozy blankets or duvet can mean the difference in having a good night’s sleep. As an extra touch, you can add linen spray or some aroma candles on a safe corner so your guest can have a more peaceful and relaxing stay. The next day, greet them a good morning with fresh, clean towels. These little things can help them disregard the space of their sleeping area.

Allot a Space for Luggage.

One of the first things your guests will do when they enter your home is bring down their luggage. Avoid the stressing over where they can put their bags, coat, shoes, and other items by clearing out a space in the closet or placing an additional storage rack beforehand.

Declutter. Declutter. Declutter.

You can be surprised at the amount of space you will save after clearing a pile of dirty laundry, old clothes, shoes lying around, stacks of paper, and other clutter around your home. You don't have to do a massive spring cleaning. Sometimes, making space just needs a bit of decluttering here and there.

Consider Bathroom Access.

It is highly advisable to have your guests stay near a bathroom, or even better, provide them with their own during their visit. Trust us. They will appreciate the mornings when they don’t have to fall in line or bump into others before being able to brush their teeth or take a bath.

Get a Murphy Bed.

Consider a Murphy Bed as a long term investment. First, you don’t have to give your guests the couch treatment. They can enjoy all the comforts of a regular bed at night without you having to worry about space during the day. Second, the Murphy Bed can also be customized to match your space needs. Third, it can even become an additional storage option around the house.

Can Kids Enjoy a Murphy Bed?

Murphy Beds are often seen in guest rooms and working areas usually occupied by adults as they are highly efficient in storage and space saving. However, can they cater to children?

There is really no specific age recommended for someone who would like to use a wallbed. Others recommend 12 years old and above, while some even attest to kids not going below that 6 years old. Murphy Beds, especially bunk beds, are definitely great ideas for parents who want both a bed and additional storage space. They have also proven to be quite fun for kids.

Still, the often question here is safety. There have been cases of accidents among children falling or getting stuck in wallbeds, mainly due to roughhousing or the actual materials used. Here at Wallbeds N More, we understand a parent’s concern of their child’s safety above anything else. This is why before we recommend a kind of Murphy Bed, we need to make sure that it is a match for the home and is made of the safest quality for a child.

Murphy Bed vs Sofa Bed

For whatever purpose it may serve, a bed is still meant to become a place or area of comfort for you and your loved ones. If you are after saving space, then a wallbed or sofa bed might be your top options to consider. Still, when it comes to choosing only one, which is better?

Our answer here at Wallbeds N More is that it depends. Being the lead distributor of wallbeds in the Keller,Ft Worth Texas area, we are often asked if a Murphy Bed or a Wallbed is still the best space saving option for beds. Although we highly recommend that you explore the various kinds of wallbeds available, it’s better to be informed of all your options.

Here is a quick comparison of the two popular kinds of beds.

Sofa Bed

Time and time again, sofa beds have proven to be useful and value for the money because of their dual functions as both a bed and a sofa. If you are living in an apartment and you are expecting guests any time of the year, then a sofa bed is always handy for people to crash in your living room.

It is also a good thing that sofa beds have evolved especially in terms of design. You can now have various styles, sizes, and colors made to match your living room. Another benefit is that your sofa bed doesn’t even have to be confined in one room. You can have it moved to different areas because it’s not attached to anything.

Murphy Bed or Wallbed

The best thing about wallbeds is that they can bring dual functions to any room. If your area has a much smaller space or needs more room, then a Murphy Bed is definitely the best way to go. You can have an office, study, or craft area by day and a guest room at night. There can be no traces of a bed in the area because of the evolution of the Murphy Bed’s design and functionality.

You can consult with us here at Wallbeds N More and have your wallbed built with bookcases, door cabinets, desks, shelves, and other storage options. You can have additional lighting setup installed according to your preference.

One of the biggest advantages of a Murphy Bed over the Sofa Bed is the comfort that it brings. For it is flexible with various kinds of mattresses, it can definitely deliver the level of comfort of a regular bed.

In the end, the final decision will still depend on your needs and preference. For more tips in finding the right kind of bed for your space, check out more of our articles.
