Saving Space with a Wall Bed – Tips on Getting Your Murphy Bed Project Done!
Comparing a wall bed to a futon or sofa bed as their advantages.
Solve your lack of space with a few unique options, one of them being a wall bed!
Lack of space is always a big problem. When you need to have a multi functional room in order to save space the Murphy Bed is a fantastic solution.
An occasional guest who might visit a couple times a year may be an issue. So using a hidden wall bed in that room is the right solution when you need it.
Keep in mind, that if you buy a custom Murphy bed or wall bed it will cost you thousands of dollars.
And perhaps extra for installation. BUT, if you’re familiar with woodworking skills and you have done a few DIY projects in the past, the Easy DIY Murphy Bed is an option to maximize your space without spending a lot of money.
The Sofa Bed Option
The other option is to buy a sofa bed or a futon, so you can use it as a couch for most of the times and when a guest comes to stay with you overnight, you can turn it to a bed. That can be a solution, but most sofa beds are not very comfortable unless they are high quality and good brands which will cost you a pretty penny, and you still need to store the blanket and pillows in a closet.
You may not want a sofa bed. Let’s face it, quality ones are a huge investment. And you may not find one that suits your space saving needs.
