Murphy beds have an intriguing set of advantages when it comes to picking out a bed for small homes or apartment spaces. While large homes can take just about any type of bed without problem, urban living often comes with constrained space. This is where you might want to consider a Murphy bed. This is a unique type of bed that not only provides traditional bed functionality, but can be folded up neatly when not in use. This makes more space available to do other things during the day, such as using your sleeping space as a living room. Below, we’ve selected the best Murphy beds around.

To Consider Before Your Purchase
