What Is a Murphy Bed?
A Murphy bed, also referred to as a wall-bed, pull-down bed, or fold-down bed, is hinged at one end to fold up vertically against the wall or inside a closet or cabinet. To achieve this, the mattress is attached to the bed frame (usually with elastic straps). Similar to a trundle bed, Murphy beds are used to save space. Most Murphy beds do not have box springs. Instead, the mattress lies on a wood platform or wire mesh and is held in place with Velcro straps so it doesn’t sag when in a closed position. The folding support leg is angled to prevent stubbed toes, and the powder-coated aluminum mechanism is lightweight, rated to support up to 2,000 pounds.
Benefits of a Murphy Bed
A great choice for areas with limited space, Murphy beds are ideal for small homes, apartments, mobile homes, and college dormitories. They offer a number of benefits:
- Modern Murphy bed units have options for lighting, storage cabinets, and office components.
- There are numerous design options available, such as horizontal oriented beds that flip up from the side and even bunk beds.
- Piston-lifts and torsion springs make modern Murphy beds easy to operate.
- They’re more comfortable than sofa beds and futons with no bars and a comfortable, smooth folding mattress that eliminates the need for a box spring.
- And more!
