Furnishing a small bedroom can be a challenge. Your bedroom should be your retreat, where you can enjoy privacy and unwind. In an ideal bedroom set up, there’s space to seamlessly transition from morning preparations to efficient storage, using your computer, and more. But in a small bedroom, there is rarely any space left after you put in the bed.
Many homes and apartments have tiny bedrooms. It can be tough to find room for anything else alongside your bed. This is why Bestar Murphy beds are the ultimate solution for small bedrooms. When you can fold up your bed in the morning, you don’t have to sacrifice space during the day.
What Is a Murphy Bed?
A Murphy bed is a bed that you can fold against the wall when it’s not in use. Murphy beds are designed to “disappear” during the day so that you can completely reclaim that precious floor space for daily activities.
Bestar Murphy beds are specifically designed to fold vertically into a cabinet that is slightly deeper than the width of your mattress. During the day, your room will look like you have an attractive armoire in one corner, while you can enjoy a comfortable bed at night.
How Does a Murphy Bed Work?
Bestar Murphy beds feature a dual-piston system that allows you to fold the bed smoothly. To put the bed away, all you have to do is remove the pillows, tuck the blankets in around the mattress, and lift the foot of the bed. You can then fold the leg over the mattress and gently push the foot of the bed into the top of the cabinet.
The underside of the bed features the front design of the cabinet, so you don’t even have to wrangle any hidden doors. It’s as simple as that.
To open your Murphy bed, simply pull the elegant handle on the front of the cabinet and the bed will begin a smooth fold downward. Lower the bed and unfold the leg. Voila! Your bed is ready to use.
Why the Murphy Bed Is Your Small Bedroom Solution
Everyone who’s ever had a small bedroom knows the drill. Either you spend your time tiptoeing around the bedframe, or you wind up spending way too much time in bed.
It can also lead to a poor sleep hygiene—with no separation between your daytime and nighttime space—and it’s often hard to keep your bedroom tidy.
With a Murphy bed, you can finally say goodbye to your bed dominating your space. Folding away the bed when you’re not sleeping can help you to actually enjoy your small bedroom. You can stretch out, get dressed without throwing clothes on the bed, and enjoy daytime activities freely.
The Benefits of a Bed You Can Put Away
When it comes to bedrooms, everyone has a personal style. You may be messy or meticulous. You might enjoy private exercise, crafting time, or prefer to work in the privacy of your room. All of that is hindered by your bedframe in a small bedroom. However, having a bed that folds away comes with some serious benefits that anyone can enjoy.
Better Sleep Hygiene
Good sleep hygiene suggests saving your bed for bedtime. If you watch TV, listen to music, or eat meals on your bed, your brain will associate your bed with active thoughts and daytime activities. However, if your bed is fully put away during the day, your brain will associate unfolding the bed with “Time for Sleep” and you will have an easier time drifting off into your dreams when you lay your head down.
Room for a Desk and Chair
Murphy beds are great for optimizing space, especially if you want a desk to work privately in your room. The ability to fold up your bed can make room for that desk you’ve always wanted. The Bestar Murphy Bed with Fold-Out Desk features a side cabinet with a roll-out desk surface to turn your Murphy bed structure into an L-shaped office space. While the Bestar Murphy Bed with Desk has a laptop desk that is part of the closed cabinet, so you can enjoy a space-efficient desk space when your bed is closed.
Easier to Keep Your Bedroom Tidy
If you like a tidy bedroom, you will enjoy the freedom to move around and organize when your Murphy bed is folded away. No more tiptoeing around your bed to access your shelves and closet. You can organize to your heart’s content and enjoy the clean open space created by the closed bedframe.
Empty Floorspace to Stretch and Exercise
If you’re an active person or have an exercise goal, it’s often more comfortable to work out in your private bedroom. Now, you can. The floor space taken up by a full-sized or queen-sized bed is more than enough to stretch out and exercise. Place a nice, padded rug on the floor or unroll your yoga mat. You can even keep foldaway exercise gear in your room that unfolds as soon as your bed is put away.
Additional Storage in the Murphy Bedframe
Many of Bestar’s Murphy Bed designs come with extra storage and cabinet space to either side of the bed enclosure. If you were looking for elegant cabinets and shelves to improve your bedroom storage, this is the perfect solution that will also match the decor of your new Murphy bed.
Clean Bedding Protected During the Day
Lastly, small bedroom residents will rejoice when you realize that your bedding will never again be full of crumbs, art supplies, or other debris from your daily activities. Now that you can put your bed away, it is no longer your primary daytime surface. Your sheets will be clean, and your bedding tidy every time you unfold your bed for a better night’s sleep.
Unlocking Your Small Bedroom’s Potential with a Murphy Bed
If you are furnishing a small bedroom, a Murphy bed is a valuable investment for both your comfort and your lifestyle. It’s the perfect solution for a wonderful night’s sleep and for unleashing full potential of your personal space during the day. Optimize your space, improve your sleep quality, and get the most out of your small bedroom with a Bestar Murphy bed.
