You've probably seen the old comedy movies where the Murphy bed folds up with someone in it. In reality, Murphy beds are a practical way to expand a small space into comfortable overnight accommodations. With the the bed no longer occupying the main floor space of a room, you can use the space for other things. Your home office can pull double duty as a guest room. Kids play area or study space is just a "lift" of the bed away. Your overnight guests can sleep comfortably on a standard innerspring mattress instead of a fold-out back breaking sleeper sofa. Library rooms are magically transformed into guest suites by sliding open doors to reveal a bed.
Many of the cabinets that contain the Murphy bed mechanisms are crafted of fine furniture cabinetry. They can have accessories like crown molding or additional storage cabinets on the sides for clothes or other items. Light kits can be installed inside the cabinets to allow the occupants to rest comfortably against the headboard of the cabinet and read. Professional installation is a key factor in ensuring a good nights sleep on your Murphy Bed.
From then to now - California to Asheville, NC : Back in 1894, in a tiny San Francisco apartment, bachelor William L. Murphy simply wanted to invite women into his one-room apartment. Society conventions of the time, however, frowned upon single women keeping company with a man where a bed was in sight. So Murphy invented a bed that disappeared. The name Murphy bed in general means a bed that stores out of site - typically in a cabinet or in a closet area. More Space Place Asheville opened its store in Asheville in 2002, bringing Murphy Beds and custom closets to the WNC area. Amanda custom designs and we install Murphy Beds and other space saving solutions in the surrounding Western North Carolina Area. For an appointment please call 828-665-9665 or email me.
