You live in a studio apartmentThree Ways to Use a Murphy Bed 

  • A small one bedroom or studio apartment is the ideal living space to implement a Murphy bed. The bed can fold up and out of the way to make room for having guests over, using more space for exercise activities, or just for hanging out. If you are limited in your space due to the apartment that you live in and you don’t want to downgrade to a smaller bed, just get a wall bed to make up for the space that you would have lost!

 

You need extra sleeping space for guests

  • Murphy beds are the perfect solution for housing extra guests in your home.

With the expertise of Jay Feingold, the Tailored Living representative, old desks, tables, and storage areas were replaced with brand new counterparts much more suited to the space. David Powell of Budget Blinds Westfield used custom motorized creative shades provided by Draper with inspirational quotes to replace the rundown vertical shades.

It is a haven to help them stay off the streets and out of trouble; they receive guidance and support from local community role models.

A Murphy Bed can Turn any Room into a Guest Bedroom 

Planning on hosting guests or family this summer? If so, then you are likely trying to figure out the best sleeping arrangements for guests who will be staying overnight in your humble abode. One of the best ways to transform an existing home office, spare room, study, or even dining room into a guest room is to implement the use of a Murphy bed.  

Murphy, or wall beds, are going through a bit of a renaissance in many interior design and décor circles. The beds, which have been around since the turn of the 19th century, have come a long way from their archaic ancestors. A Murphy bed is now available in any size, from twin to California king, and they are just as comfortable as any normal bed. The best part about these beds, if you didn't already know, is the fact that when they are not being slept on they can fold up into their own full-sized armoire. Tailored Living home organization and space saving specialists can help you find the perfect bed and accompanying storage cabinet for your soon-to-be guest bedroom. 

Tailored Living home organization specialists are trained to find you the best possible solution for your home’s organizational or space saving issues. During your free in-home consultation they will provide you with many different solutions based on what you are looking to achieve.

Tailored Living specialists are well-versed in making the most out of small spaces and using the full extent of a room’s storage capabilities. If you are looking for a great way to add some space to your small home, start by calling your local Tailored Living today and you may have a new Murphy bed by tomorrow!

The Magic of Murphy Beds

Let's face it, space is precious and more often than not, we just don't have enough of it! When it comes to creating multipurpose rooms in our homes, a common obstacle is finding space for a bed. Whether it's twin or king-sized, any bed will dominate the room, limiting its functionality and decor. Sofa beds, although convenient at times, can be clunky and uncomfortable. When not in use, they do provide extra seating space but will eat up valuable floor space. That is where the magic of murphy beds comes in!

A perfect solution to any multipurpose or guest room, a growing number of interior designers and builders are turning to these wall beds to maximize space in small spaces. Not to be confused with those flimsy ironing boards that slam back into the wall, today's
murphy beds use standard think mattresses and box springs. Better yet, they come in a variety of sizes including ones that wouldn't find in your average sleep retailer and range in style from basic to the most luxurious.

Tailored Living organization specialists can incorporate a murphy bed design into any space in your home.  They’re the perfect solution for multipurpose living areas, home offices, and loft layouts.
