Murphy beds are a common solution to maximizing tight spaces, whether those spaces are on ships, RVs, apartments or homes.
And one of the best things about having a fold down bed is that you can have any size mattress you need or want; all you need is space for the bed once you put it in place.
Another benefit to a wall mounted bed is that you can make a room multi-purpose.
For example, by adding a Murphy bed to your current guest room, you free up the space to be used however you want when you don’t have visitors.
