MURPHY BEDS – A SPACE SAVING ALTERNATIVE
Alternative bed options come and go, from sofa beds to futons, but it all started with the Murphy Wall-Bed. As a child, I remember the Murphy bed comedy skits of “I Love Lucy,” “Red Skelton” etc. and how unique it was to have a bed come out of the wall! By combining today’s technology in Murphy Beds with custom cabinetry the possibilities are unlimited.
Do you want a home office, exercise room etc. but simply do not have the space? Converting an unused guest bedroom to a combination bedroom and office can be done easily and beautifully, with a Murphy Wall-Bed system. A comfortable, full mattress bed can be created and concealed into beautiful furniture in your family room or living room. A place for television, bookshelves, file drawers, and many others can all be incorporated into a Wall-Bed system.
Double twin beds, full, or queen size beds can all be used. Beds can come out of their enclosure vertically or horizontally, depending on the amount of floor space you have available. A horizontal twin bed will require as little as 49″ from the wall to the edge of the mattress. Queen size vertical beds will extend 90″ from the wall to the end of the mattress, so a large room is not required to incorporate a Wall-Bed. An area as small as 107 x 107 will yield a full size bed and 60″ desk arrangement.
Unlike soda beds and futons, the Murphy Wall-Bed does not use a folding mattress so there are no bars or lumps to sleep on. A comfortable mattress, up to 11″ thick, can be used. The mechanisms have been improved to support up to 2,000 pounds, yet is aluminum and light weight. Minimal effort is needed to make the bed appear so it is convenient for all age groups to use.
Whatever the need or space, Murphy Beds can open new options in your home. Available in many sizes and configurations, these versatile systems are available in many woods, styles and finishes. The design professionals at CKB Creations of Punta Gorda, Florida and Oshkosh, Wisconsin will transform unused space into an outstanding home feature. Almost limitless options, colors, woods and designs are possible.
