The History of Murphy Beds and Why They Endure
If you’re unfamiliar with Murphy beds, you may wonder how they became popular or how they might work for you. Murphy beds were invented in the early 1900s by a man named William Murphy, who lived in a one-room apartment. He wanted to invite his sweetheart to visit, but he didn’t want to make her uncomfortable by having his bed on display — in those days, that would be considered highly improper.
To solve his problem, Murphy figured out a way to fold his bed into the wall when it wasn’t in use, inventing a new way to sleep that eventually caught on around the world.
So, what’s the difference between Murphy beds and wall beds? Nothing — they’re simply different names for the same option. You can find so many variations of these beds to serve different purposes. Here are just a few:
- Sofa or couch wall beds
- Bunk wall beds
- Desk wall beds
- Twin or queen wall beds
Whichever you choose, you’ll find they have essentially the same function — to fold up into the wall when you’re finished with them.
The Benefits of Wall Beds for Your D.C. Home
Murphy beds have so many advantages when you want to rework your space. While D.C. homes often have rich histories and beautiful interiors, they might not always have far-reaching square footage — but that doesn’t mean you can’t use your space creatively.
That’s where our furniture can help. Suddenly, you can transform a space that previously fulfilled only one function into an area that meets multiple needs. Here are some ways people use our many wall beds to expand the possibilities of all their rooms.
Taking the “Spare” Out of Spare Bedroom
Guest bedrooms are a wonderful luxury for homes with extra space. But what if you have limited room to work with? You want your guests to enjoy privacy when they visit, but you don’t want to waste much-needed space when no one comes to stay.
A Murphy bed can solve this dilemma. Our beds can help you give guests a room to themselves while also freeing it up when they’re away. Here’s how:
- Use a wall bed couch to change a comfortable bedroom into a lounging living room or library when guests are gone.
- Employ a wall bed desk to turn a guest room into a handy home office.
- Try a wall bed table for a guest space that doubles as a dining room.
With the right bed, you can switch the purpose of a room in a flash by folding the bed up when your guests are ready to head home.
Improving Efficiency of Smaller Spaces in DC
You can’t beat the coziness of a smaller home. These places are perfect for young families, older empty nesters and all ages in between. But to make your smaller space in D.C. work for you, you need efficiency — and wall beds can make that a reality.
With small homes come small bedrooms. Say you want a queen bed for your child’s room. You know they’ll also need floor space for playing, so maybe you’ll consider downsizing to a twin — but even that takes up most of the room, leaving little space left to draw, dress up dolls or stack building blocks.
Queen wall beds deliver the ideal solution. You’ll get the right-sized bed to carry your child through their teenage years, and you can put it away whenever you want, giving them free use of the whole bedroom.
Make a Smaller Environmental Impact With Wall Beds
In Washington, D.C., many citizens care about environmental concerns and limiting their carbon footprint. Many people try to buy only what they need for their homes, eliminating excess waste and accumulation. Our Murphy beds address these aims. Clei, our eco-conscious manufacturer, makes furniture using green building blocks such as:
- LED lighting that consumes little energy
- Lacquers made without solvents or formaldehyde
- Recycled materials
The Italian company also captures gas byproducts and sawdust during production while following sustainable manufacturing standards. Another Resource Furniture partner, mattress-maker Magniflex, uses biodegradable and nontoxic materials. We care about the earth. That’s why we employ a flat-package method — to reduce the sizes of the packages we send out, cutting down on emissions and waste.
