When looking to increase the space in their homes without knocking down any walls or completing a home renovation, many Sarasota homeowners look for alternatives. Here at More Space Place, we are big believers in the power of a Murphy bed. Murphy beds are versatile wall beds that bring many benefits to a home. Here we’ll explore some of these benefits that make Murphy beds great additions to any space.
One of the greatest benefits of a Murphy bed is the extra floor space it frees up when installed in place of a traditional bed. Since Murphy beds fold away when they’re not needed, they don’t take up any space on the floor, making the space available for other uses. Whether you live in a small studio apartment and your bedroom doubles as your living room, or you have young kids who enjoy extra floor space for playing, a Murphy bed is a great space-saving solution.
Another great thing about Murphy beds is they’re easy to operate. The counter-balanced design allows for easy folding of the bed that can usually be done with just one hand. Unlike futons, sofa beds, and other alternatives, Murphy beds are operated using a simple and safe maneuver and can be folded up and down with ease. You can also store them with the sheets and bedding on the mattress, allowing for even more convenience and quick access.
Achieving multipurpose rooms in your Sarasota home is another wonderful benefit of Murphy beds. This is especially true of smaller homes where space is limited. Some common combinations include the home office and guest room arrangement. Many of our custom-made Murphy beds can include a built-in desk on one end with the folding bed on the other. That way you can have a home office for your day-to-day use while also having a comfortable guest room when friends or relatives come to visit. Another versatile setup is the child’s bedroom and playroom combo. If you don’t have an extra room to devote entirely to your children’s toys and play time, adding a Murphy bed to their bedroom can double it as a playroom.
In addition to the benefits discussed above, there are many other great perks of installing a Murphy bed in your home. For more information or to schedule a free consultation, contact your local experts at More Space Place Sarasota today!
