With a studio flat often your bedroom, living room and kitchen are all in one room. This single room dwelling can feel enclosed and claustrophobic. However, with a built in bed you have more floor space to enjoy during the day. This means you can still have visitors over, take part in recreational activities or just relax and unwind. Then when it’s time for bed you can transform the space again by folding out the bed, so you are comfortable for sleep.

A folding bed helps you distinguish between your living and sleeping space. During the day with extra floor space, you won’t feel cramped. But at night-time you can feel all cosy tucked up in bed.  Some like to use partitions, curtains or sliding doors to separate the two zones. However, a Murphy wall bed makes the most of the vertical space in the room. When not in use it just looks like a regular fitted wardrobe.

Folding beds are also ideal for spare rooms. They are perfect for occasional use when you have visitors. It means you can use the room for other purposes the rest of the time. It can be wasteful having a room dedicated just for guests especially when they stay very rarely. Instead, when the bed is folded away you have room for a gym, an art studio or a study. These types of projects add value to your home because buyers can see the value of their versatility.

The spring system in the Murphy bed mechanism makes it very easy to open. It is safe and lightweight. The shelf above the bed can be used to store bedding. The Great White colour from Farrow & Ball is very elegant. It has a red undertone which makes it a warmer white. This is a good choice in north facing rooms which get less light.
