While technically known as a wall bed, "Murphy Bed" is the common terminology for the installation of a bed that, essentially, is part of a wall. Do you know the history of the Murphy Bed? According to SmartSpaces.com “the bed is named for William Lawrence Murphy (1876–1959), who applied for his first patents around 1900. According to legend, he was wooing an opera singer, but living in a one-room apartment in San Francisco, and the moral code of the time frowned upon a woman entering a man’s bedroom. Murphy’s invention converted his bedroom into a parlor, enabling him to entertain in one living space!”.

Clever, isn’t it? Since the time of Murphy’s patent, the Murphy Bed has become so popular and synonymous with the wall bed that the term “Murphy Bed” can no longer be patented and is now is part of our everyday lexicon. In the case of The Tailored Closet, we like to say that “…[our] Murphy Bed is the ultimate space saver creating an instant guest room with lasting comfort and style” and these days, can provide long-lasting benefits to your home’s value and your family’s comfort. Read on to learn the top 3 benefits of installing a Murphy Bed in your own home:

Space-Saving Functionality

Imagine if you lived in an apartment or condo like William Murphy did? In fact, many of us do live in tighter quarters or shared spaces. Installing a Murphy Bed allows for a less cramped feeling and gives your home, as we said above, an instant guest room. Imagine the reduction in tension during the holidays? The space-saving alone is the # 1 reason for installing a Murphy Bed!

Creating A Multi-Purpose Space

Our Murphy Beds, which come with a variety of cabinetry and storage options, allow a room to function as a multi-purpose space. Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a private home office that can also be used as a guest room? Guest rooms aren’t used all the time – installing a stylish Murphy Bed gives your room(s) more purpose and allows them to be used year-round in a variety of ways. It’s a win-win!

Enjoying Storage that Looks Sleek

Murphy Beds of old were simple structures with a relatively simple design. That’s no longer the case. Today, our Tailored Closet Murphy Beds are customized solutions for your home and the space you have and showcase a variety of cabinetry and storage options. Built-in shelves, pull out drawers, beautiful lighting – all these combine to create a sleek and modern design while also housing a comfortable bed (which is a question that is received quite often!).
