Wall beds, also known as Murphy beds, are a convenient space-saver for many Sarasota homes. Is a wall bed the right choice for you? There are a few important questions to ask yourself before installing a wall bed. Once you’re ready, More Space Place is here to help!
How often will I use my wall bed?
Our modern wall beds make storing your bed and pulling it out for later use a simple, easy task. For studios and small spaces, your wall bed might be moved up and down daily. In this case, it’s smart to avoid decorating your new space with heavy furniture – that furniture will have to be moved whenever you want to use your bed. For a guest room, your wall bed could remain hidden most of the time. This gives you more freedom with decorating.
What will I do with the extra space?
Wall beds open up a lot of space, and it’s smart to consider how you’ll take advantage of that extra room. Are you designing for a small home or studio? Transform your bedroom into a living room by day! Are you considering a wall bed for a guest room? Give your guest room dual purpose: transform it into an office, living space, reading nook, or game room when it’s not in use. If you’re thinking about a wall bed for a child’s room, consider how they might use the extra space. It could be the perfect play spot for a younger child, or desk and study spot for teens.
What style of wall bed do I want?
More Space Place Sarasota offers a wide selection of wall bed styles. We allow you to personalize your wall bed with custom-built shelves, cabinets, and more! From traditional and classic to sleek and modern, we can create the perfect wall bed for your life and style. Consider how a wall bed could enhance the look of your home.

If you’re considering a Murphy bed as a space-saving furniture solution for your home on the Sun Coast, you’ll have a number of different options to choose from. Before you decide, it’s good to know what needs you’re looking for the bed to fill, as well as have an idea of what your space allows for. More Space Place of Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte offers a wide variety of styles that also come with customizable options that make it so you end up with the perfect solution for your home. What are some of those styles and how do they function? Let’s take a look!
The Murphy bed is a tried and true space saver. It’s easily maneuvered using a spring-loaded mechanism that’s safe and secure. There’s a support leg that extends and retracts automatically as the bed raises and lowers, as well as a sturdy support for the mattress. There are many models of Murphy beds depending on what you’re looking for.
The classic style features a pull-down bed that’s hidden behind attractive bi-fold doors when stored upright. This bed can be customized to fit your space and style, including with different colors and finishes, as well as optional side cabinets.
Library & Bookcase
Bookcase and library Murphy beds are worth considering. They’re great options if you have a book collection or other items you need stored on shelves. You can choose from different shelved door models, including those that glide out to the sides, bi-folding doors that take up less space, or doors that swing open to reveal the bed inside.
Pocket Door Bed
This style features bi-fold pocket doors that collapse into the side cabinets to help save space. Like the classic model, it also can be designed in your choice of finish along with optional side cabinets for additional storage.
Panel beds are ideal for maximizing space with their sleek and clutter-free design. They are made using front panel doors that drop down with the bed and stay hidden under the mattress and out of the way when the bed is in use.
A standard panel bed, the Metropolitan saves space without the bi-fold doors. The panel drops down with the mattress to act as its support. This style also includes the option to add side cabinets for more storage.
This panel bed model is contemporary and sophisticated in its appearance. It features side cabinets that are included in the design, as well as drop-down nightstands for enhanced utility and style.
Ideal for spaces with limited vertical space, such as those with low or slanted ceilings, the Cosmopolitan panel bed is a horizontal model. It comes in varying sizes from twin to queen. Its solid panel doors add an attractive element to the room when the bed is stored away, and the bed can also include side cabinets for more storage if you so desire.

Bookcase & Library Beds
Jefferson Bookcase bed
The bookcase bed comes in a few different models. The Madison bookcase bed is a classic choice for those looking for both a stylish bookcase and a cozy sleeper. The shelved doors swing open to access the bed behind them. Similar in look is the Madison bi-fold bookcase bed. The difference here is the bi-folding doors take up less wall space when open. Another wall bed beloved for its storage is the Jefferson library bed. This model is ideal for book lovers needing plenty of storage space, as it offers ample shelving for your collectibles. The doors glide smoothly on sturdy tracks to each side, opening to reveal the bed. Unlike either of the Madison bookcase bed models where they’re optional add-ons, the Jefferson bed includes side cabinets.
Chesterfield Panel Bed
At More Space Place, we carry a number of different panel beds. However, here we’re going to explore a couple options that differ quite a bit from each other. One of those models is the Cosmopolitan bed. This style is unique because unlike the more common and traditional Murphy and wall beds, this one opens horizontally. It’s a perfect space saver for rooms with low ceilings and is well suited for homeowners who enjoy a more contemporary look. Another panel bed option is the Chesterfield, which not only can offer extra storage via the side cabinets, but it also boasts additional seating! This panel bed includes a sofa that sits in front of the unit. When it’s time for bed, all you do is remove the seat cushions and the bed rests comfortably between the arms. The Chesterfield panel bed is a perfect example of the incredible efficiency and versatility of the wall bed.
