A Murphy bed can go in nearly any room of the house, including the living room. If you choose to put your wall bed in the living room, there are a couple things to consider based on your space and your needs. Check out our tips for adding a Murphy bed in your living room.
We offer several Murphy beds to suit a variety of spaces and styles. Take a look at our models and decide which is right for your needs. A bookcase model like the Madison or Jefferson is a great option if you want bookshelves in your living area. If you have low ceilings or limited floor space, the Cosmopolitan, which folds out horizontally, may be right for you. You can use the Cosmopolitan as a daybed, too, so it’s also a simple way to add more seats to your living room.
Arrange your living room in such a way that you don’t have to move much to open your Murphy bed. Moving a small table is no big deal, but you’ll get frustrated if you have to move the couch or the TV every time a guest comes to stay. If you’re debating whether to put a heavy bookcase in front of your wall bed’s doors because you need the storage, consider choosing a model with built-in shelving or cabinets.
The only downside to having a Murphy bed in your living room instead of a spare room is that your guest may miss having a private space to retreat every once in a while. If you’re having a guest stay for more than a week, come up with a way for them to have some alone time. This might mean offering to let them use the computer in the home office when you’re not working or simply planning to stay out of the living room for an hour or so every day.
