"We bought a new place recently and have been super excited to decorate and make it reflect our tastes. But as we unpacked, we found that there was this one room that kind of became the place for everything we didn't know what to do with. A mini storage unit started happening and what was thought of as a nice, guest room became a piled-up eyesore. Ugh.
That was before we got this great idea. What if we kept the idea of having a place for stuff but did it in a smart, efficient way - all without having to sacrifice our grand 'guest room' idea?
My parents were coming to visit in a month(!). This would be our deadline to make it happen. They were excited to see our new home and we wanted to make sure they'd be comfortable. No way could we put them on our old, beater pull-out couch again. Nor could we use the blow-up mattress, which made us crack-up every time dad tried to lay on it when mom was already there. He almost bounced her to the other side of the room just by sitting down.
Okay, back to the great idea. A Murphy bed! I know, a Murphy what? It's a fold-up bed that folds up in a cabinet. But this is not just a thin, uncomfortable bed - it's a true queen size mattress. Totally comfortable! Posh! That would be the answer to this crazy little room. We could put a Murphy bed there - with shelving and also use the space as a multi-use room.
So, we ordered the bed from Nashville Murphy Beds. It arrived two weeks later and we were very glad to have them deliver and install it because it's huge and quite a project to assemble.
Once it was in, it became part of the house. It only came out about a foot and a half from the wall and looked fantastic with the stain and finish we chose. The shelves were perfect for books, photos and even places to charge up mobile phones and laptops.
When we put the bed down - a nice, smooth lowering action - it was like a permanent bed and just as comfortable.
Mom and dad arrived and were very impressed! We watched their reaction as they tried it out and dad said he might not go home! Ha! Mom winked as if that might not be a bad idea. Double ha!
So, if you're considering doing this Murphy bed thing we say 'do it!' You'll make better use of your room and your guests will really love it."
