You might be surprised to learn how a Murphy bed fits within home office design – but these two are actually a perfect pair! At More Space Place, we help homeowners across Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte by creating functional and customized home office designs. Keep reading to learn how Murphy beds and home offices work together!

Murphy Bed Designs for Your Office

Our Murphy beds come in a variety of models perfect for home offices. Let’s start with Murphy beds that include built-in desks! These models combine an essential office feature with a comfortable option for guests. The Murphy bed itself remains a simple and subtle design element when folded up and won’t detract from your office. 

We also have horizontal Murphy bed options, which fold up lengthwise instead of vertically. This option is great for smaller spaces or offices that are a component of other areas rather than existing in their own room.

Creating a Multipurpose Room

No longer do you need to sacrifice the usability of one space to create another. A Murphy bed allows you to transform any office room into a multipurpose room for guests, family members, or yourself. By adding a Murphy bed to your custom office design, you’ll be able to create your dream office space as well as a comfortable and stylish bedroom. Our beds are easy to set up when in use, and fold up seamlessly when it comes time to work. You won’t even notice it’s there until you need it!

A Murphy bed can be used to create a private space that has it all – a room to work, to rest, and to be productive and creative. 

A Space-Saving Essential

A Murphy bed is an elegant solution to your space-saving woes. By combining the functions of a bedroom and home office, our custom storage designs will allow you to make the most out of our available space. Free up a guest bedroom and turn it into a home office, or give your guests a comfortable place to sleep without sacrificing your office space. 

Kid & Teen Study Solutions

A Murphy bed can also be a great way to give kids and teens space to study and play in their own room. It can be a struggle to get kids to focus on schoolwork or be productive, so having a dedicated study space is important. A Murphy bed and desk combo for their own room is a great way to provide them space to learn and grow.

Two: Your home becomes the perfect place for guests.

That’s no problem with a Murphy bed. Transform your guest bedroom into a home office, craft room, or playroom whenever guests aren’t staying over. You have endless options.

Three: Style

We custom-build your Murphy bed to suit your exact tastes and styles. From modern finishes to a rustic touch, we’ll give you a Murphy bed that’s both functional and stylish.

Questions to Ask Yourself Before Buying A Wall Bed

murphy bed sarasota

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!

murphy bed sarasota

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. A classic look is bi-fold doors, which appear to be a closet when folded up. Shelving is an excellent way to add even more storage space to your room. If you love to read, we can design the perfect bookshelf wall bed for you!

Tips and Tricks to Keep Your Child’s Bedroom Organized

child bedroom sarasota

child bedroom sarasota

Parents, do you ever feel like as soon as you finish picking up your kids’ toys in one room, you leave to find an even bigger mess in another? Children have the unique skill of turning any room into a toy- and clothing-strewn disaster within a matter of minutes. Keeping your child’s room organized can feel like a losing battle. Keep the chaos at bay with custom storage solutions brought to you by More Space Place Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte! Keep reading to discover our favorite tips for keeping your child’s room organized.

Get on Their Level

When creating storage solutions for kids, it is essential to understand their point of view. Ideally, your kids will eventually be cleaning up their own messes. Designing storage solutions that suit their needs will make this process easier. Avoid shelving in high places – if they can’t reach, they won’t be putting things back.

Get Creative with Their Bed

Bulky furniture can make a room feel cramped and cluttered. Beds, in particular, take up a huge amount of space. Cut down on clutter with a wall bed. Wall beds open up a huge amount of space, providing extra storage space and play space. You can also create extra room and storage with built-in desks, drawers, and cabinets. This helps consolidate furniture while also creating a unique and interesting setup for your child. 

Create a Play Space

Play space is an important component in any child’s room. Giving your child adequate play space will prevent your child’s toys from ending up in the living room. We suggest creating designated play areas in your kid’s room. This space should provide clear organization and structure when clean-up time comes.

Create The Perfect Custom Storage Solution Today

Keep your child’s bedroom organized and neat with custom storage solutions, brought to you by More Space Place Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte! Contact our team of experts today to get started with a free in-home consultation.

Choosing The Right Murphy Bed For Your Space & Needs

panel bed - Sarasota

panel bed - SarasotaIf 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!

Murphy Beds

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.

Standard Murphy

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

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.

Metropolitan

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.

Manhattan

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.

Horizontal

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.

Whether you’re looking for a solution that will save space in a room where space is limited or you want to maximize storage in your home, we have the perfect Murphy bed solution for you!

Maximize Your Space With A Murphy Bed & Desk

murphy bed and desk - Sarasota

murphy bed and desk - SarasotaAt More Space Place of Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte, we’re all about creating beautiful spaces that work to solve storage and organizational needs in homes across the Sun Coast. A Murphy bed and desk combo is a prime example of one of these space-saving solutions, and it’s one that’s as versatile as they come. In this post, we will explore just how versatile one of these combinations is and how it could benefit your home.

Creating a Multipurpose Room

One of the greatest things about a Murphy bed and desk combo is that it can be used to create a multifunctional space in your home. If you don’t have multiple spare rooms to devote to serving various purposes, such as one for a guest room and one for a home office, how about combining the two into one efficient room? A Murphy bed alone is flexible and offers many benefits. It can fold up off the floor when not in use, which opens up more floor space for other things. Adding a desk to your wall bed brings the unit’s utility to the next level. You’ll have a comfortable bed to offer overnight guests while also maintaining a productive home office space for your daily use.

Customized to Your Style and Storage Needs

Just like all of the storage solutions we offer, our Murphy beds and desk units are customizable to suit your personal style and the aesthetic of your home. We offer a variety of colors and finishes, as well as storage add-ons and hardware for you to choose from. For example, this award-winning design features a nautical themed home office with a Murphy bed attached. The white laminate finish combined with custom color match paint and traditional crown moulding resulted in a one-of-a-kind project customized for this Sarasota condo on the bay. When designing your unit, you can choose from a lot of different styles of Murphy beds to properly suit your storage needs and work with the configuration of your space.

If you’re ready to learn more about how we can help improve your space, contact us at More Space Place to schedule a free in-home consultation! We have three convenient showrooms in Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, and Port Charlotte where you can see some of our floor models on display. We look forward to working with you!

How A Murphy Bed Can Make Your Life Easier

murphy beds sarasota

murphy beds sarasotaMost of us want the things we keep in our homes to help make our lives easier and more comfortable. Universal remote controls, soft blankets, and plush rugs are testaments to this. At More Space Place of Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte, our goal is to provide brilliant and beautiful custom space-saving solutions for your home that also improve your life. Our most popular product, the Murphy bed, is one that offers a variety of benefits that can make your life easier in more ways than one.

Don’t Stress the Guests

One way in which a Murphy bed can make your life easier is to relieve the stress often caused when out-of-town guests come to stay. If you have a place designated for guests to sleep at the ready, you can avoid the stress that comes with preparation. Murphy beds are safe and easy to operate, and you can even store them with the bedding made. This makes even the accommodation of last-minute guests a breeze. Without having to deal with the hassle and disruption of finding extra pillows and blankets for the living room couch, you can focus on enjoying the company.

Save Space In Your Home

Making the most of your available space is important, especially in smaller homes where space is particularly precious. Murphy beds are great space savers, as they can be stored away when they’re not needed, thus freeing up valuable room on the floor. Many wall bed models can even be enhanced with additional storage components like cabinetry, drawers, and shelving. This is a great solution for areas of your home where your storage may be lacking. Trying to find sufficient storage space for your belongings can oftentimes be very frustrating. Make your life easier by installing a two-in-one Murphy bed and storage solution!

Create A Functional Dual-Use Space

The ability of Murphy beds to create dual-use spaces can significantly increase the functionality of your home. Adding a Murphy bed to your spare room to create a home office and guest room combo is a common way to achieve an efficient multi-purpose space. If you don’t have a spare room, you can even install a Murphy bed in your family room as a part of your entertainment center. This solution allows your family room to stay open for movie nights, social gatherings, and relaxing while also holding the potential for accommodating overnight guests.

If you want to learn more about how a Murphy bed could enhance your home and make your life easier, contact your local experts at More Space Place today! We have three convenient locations in Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte, and we also offer free in-home design consultations.
