Tiny Houses and Murphy Beds

When you choose to downsize into a tiny house space is your biggest issue. In most tiny homes a loft is added for a bedroom. However, this is not convenient if you are older and don’t want to climb up and down stairs during the night.

Even if you decide to keep a loft for your own bedroom having guests can pose a problem as there is no place to have them sleep.

That is where a Murphy bed will complement a tiny home.

Since William Lawrence Murphy came up with the idea for the fold-out wall bed around 1900 in San Francisco, his eponymously-named invention has become synonymous with space-saving. Murphy bed technology has improved vastly since its invention more than a century ago. They are not only stylish but also take the concept of multifunctional rooms to new heights.

This is why so many people living the tiny house lifestyle opt for installing Murphy beds. Like the homes themselves, the wall beds exemplify innovative design.
