Small bedrooms can be challenging to find furniture for. The bed is naturally the focal point of the room, but it’s important that there be enough space in the room for other things. If you have a small bedroom, you can create more space with a built-in wall bed, also known as a Murphy bed, as opposed to using a traditional bed and box spring. Here are some different ways you can use this solution to maximize your space and the efficiency of the room.
Child and Teen Bedrooms
It’s important that a child have enough space in their bedroom for play, but if the room is very small, that can be difficult to achieve when there’s a bed in the way. Starting out with a crib might afford a small space in the center of the room, but once you upgrade to a toddler bed, a twin bed, or larger, you’re going to be pressed for space. When your child needs to do homework, a desk will come in handy, but if there’s not enough space for it, studying can be challenging.
A wall bed is the perfect solution for child and teen bedrooms. It fits snugly against the wall when not in use, allowing plenty of space for your child to play, do homework, and more. At night, the bed can be pulled down for use when having space in the room is not as necessary.
If your own bedroom is small, you may be struggling to find the space to relax if you don’t want to be in the bed. With a wall bed, you can create unique spaces for reading and watching television, and have enough space to get dressed in the morning. You can design your own personal sanctuary even in a small room, because the bed stays out of the way until you’re ready to use it.
This can also help with troubled sleepers. It has long been known that doing other activities in your bed, like reading and watching television can make falling asleep when it’s time challenging. When you use your bed only for sleep, each time you lay in it, your brain will signal your body to prepare for a good night’s rest. A wall bed prevents you from having to use your bed for everything else simply because you don’t have enough space to do otherwise.
Wall beds are excellent options for guest bedrooms. You need a place for guests to sleep when they stay with you, but you may not want to lose that space to a large bed when you don’t have a guest — which is usually the majority of the time. With a wall bed, there are a variety of options available that will allow you to have functional space in the room and an easy to pull out bed for visitors.
A standard wall bed fits seamlessly into what looks like a closet, while other models have slides that appear to be a large bookshelf when the bed is not in use. Simply slide the bookshelves to the side and pull the bed down — an excellent solution for an office space.
