If you’re interested in getting a custom service done by More Space Place Bradenton, you might be wondering: how does this process work? Take a look at this first-hand account from one of our designers, Jamie Kirk, on the process from start to finish.
“A customer in Lakewood Ranch came to me for help turning a bedroom of her recently purchased home into a multi-functional hobby room she could be proud of! She wanted to have a workspace that could also be used for crafts but thought it would be great to have a secondary guest room as well.
When it came to designing, the customer had some ideas, but not a full vision. I assisted her by discovering that she needed a lot of file storage, display areas, a Queen Bed, and a functional workspace. As for the details, she wanted the room to feel light, and airy, with a hint of modern aesthetic.
The design that we finalized, as pictured, fits her room perfectly! At about 12 x 15, we had a lot of great space to work with, though a design like this can be scaled down to a room as small as 10 x 10. In this rendition, we put Large File Drawers with a Custom Window Seat, for which the customer stated she will make a cushion herself.
To create a beautiful Display area, we created a wall-to-wall Custom Hutch on either side of the Murphy bed with Trim Atop. This creates a very clean, bright, and functional-looking unit without using glass or lights. These units match the height of the bed while being more shallow than the bed and Countertop below. This, therefore, adds dimension to the shelves above and seamlessly ties in the workstation.

A configuration like this can be customized in many different ways, based on the customer’s needs. In every case, I try to discover my customer’s primary needs for the space in terms of usage, storage, and aesthetics.”
Thank you very much to our designer Jamie and our lovely team for completing this project!

Do you have a lot of guests who come to your house? If so, you may have a dedicated guest room. What if you have too many people? In this case, you may be thinking about getting a Murphy bed. A Murphy bed is a bed that folds down from the wall when you need it. Then, when you no longer need that bad, you simply fold it up against the wall, putting it away. What are a few of the signs that indicate you could benefit from a Murphy bed? Here is what you should look out for according to the experts at More Space Place Sarasota.
You Are Always a Bed Short
If you consistently find that you are one bed short, then you need a Murphy bed. A guest room is great, but it can only hold so many people. If there are times when you find yourself to be short by one bed, then a Murphy bed could be the right move. It does not have to take up space in your home all the time, but you can fold it down when you need it. That way, you don’t have to worry about people always sleeping on the couch.
You Need More Space in Your Home
Next, if you are looking for a way to create more space in your home, then a Murphy bed could be beneficial. Do you find the people are consistently stubbing their toes on items and tripping over things? If so, you need to create more space. Even though you don’t want to eliminate your guest bed, there is a way you can have the best of both worlds. You can use a Murphy bed when you need it, and fold it up to create more space during other times.
You Need a Multifunctional Piece of Furniture
Finally, if you find yourself looking for something to conserve more than one purpose, a Murphy bed is helpful. Of course, you can use a Murphy bed to give someone a place to sleep, but there are modern Murphy beds that serve other purposes as well. For example, there are some Murphy beds that fold out into a sofa when they are up against the wall. You can even find a Murphy bed to provide you with extra storage. If storage is what you were looking for, then you need an expert to help you.

Here at More Space Place Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte, Murphy beds are our business, but don’t think that that makes us biased! We’re true believers in the space-saving and life-improving qualities that come with installing a Murphy bed in your home. From more space to more time, you’ll never regret the decision to install a Murphy bed from More Space Place. Here are our top 4 reasons to invest in a top quality Murphy bed for your home.
1. Friends and Family
Whether it’s a friend swinging through town for a business trip or family coming over for the holidays, having a Murphy bed means they’ll have a place to stay and a reason to come visit. As travel starts opening up, not having to pay for a hotel will be a huge incentive to get children to come visit. And your Murphy bed can provide a great place for old college friends to crash when they’re in town. More Space Place values the importance of family and friends, and we know how important family can be in the lives of our clients, so we want to nurture those connections with our high quality Murphy beds!
2. Easy to Use
One of the most common misconceptions people tend to have about Murphy beds is that they’re complicated and difficult to use. In reality, it’s the exact opposite! Murphy beds are incredibly simple for the average person to pull down or put back, and our high quality Murphy beds are easier to use than ever. Forget the hassle of pulling out creaky sofa beds or blowing up inflatable mattresses! Pulling down a murphy bed provides the ease you need to get a quick and easy night’s rest at a moment’s notice.
3. Space Savers
This is one of the most obvious merits that the Murphy bed has, but we really want to emphasize just how useful it will be for you to have an entire extra room in your house, which is what you get when you invest in a Murphy bed! Rather than a guest bedroom that would barely be used, you instead have a whole extra room at your disposal, that can be used for any number of activities. Turn it into a home office so that you can work remotely without having to set up your office at the dining room table. Make it a home gym and commit to getting fit! Stretch your creative wings and turn the extra space into an art studio or craft room. By saving you space, Murphy beds will also help you to expand your mind and improve your health!
4. Stay Trendy
While some might have the misconception that Murphy beds are meant for 1970’s bachelor pads, the reality is that Murphy beds are coming back into style, and are more on trend than ever. With the rising rent prices in many cities, and the precarious financial situations of many millennials, the money and space saving qualities of a Murphy bed are the answers to the living needs of many modern young people. Retailers and manufacturers like More Space Place have leapt to the challenge of providing stylish and modern designs that live up to the modern aesthetic of our younger clientele. Don’t worry about finding a murphy bed that fits your décor and style, More Space Place has custom solutions that will fit with any home.
