Horizontal Vs. Vertical Murphy Beds
Traditional murphy beds or wall beds are anchored to the wall, dropping down vertically into a bed. When closed, traditional wall beds free up floor space allowing homeowners to use the space for another purpose.
Most murphy beds open vertically. However, for rooms with difficult dimensions, a horizontal murphy bed may fit more easily. For instance, Wall Bed King offers a murphy bed that opens sideways. For rooms with wide walls, this is often a better choice as they do not extend outward into the room.
Murphy Bed Types
Cabinet Murphy Beds
Unlike traditional murphy beds, cabinet murphy beds are free-standing. Move your cabinet murphy bed wherever you want! Within a beautifully designed cabinet, the mattress folds up and can be easily hidden.
Murphy Beds with Couches
Murphy beds with couches operate just like a traditional murphy bed with the addition of a sofa. When closed, a sofa is attached to the front side of the murphy bed. This option is great for rooms that cannot accommodate both a bed frame and seating.
