Free Standing Murphy Bed

In spite of jokes and comedy routines, a Murphy bed is an excellent solution to having daytime living space in a restricted area such as a small apartment or Tiny House. Unfortunately, landlords are not always amenable to tenants installing a major furnishing like a murphy bed if it needs to be attached to a wall. Most of the free-standing beds are oriented horizontally, so they take up the same amount of wall space as a standard bed when it is placed lengthwise against a wall. When folded, they look like a large cabinet.

They fold out into either a twin or any standard bed size for nighttime comfort, and then fold back up allowing you to have plenty of floor space during the day.

What we are looking for:

Construction:

A free standing Murphy bed is usually constructed featuring a cabinet-like frame with doors that double as bed storage and can contain a headboard and footboard when it's pulled out. There are both taller units as well as ones that sit lower to the ground that are wider in size as the mattress often folds into three parts and rests inside the unit. Billy Cotton suggests finding a free standing Murphy bed with a frame crafted out of engineered or solid wood if you want something durable and long-lasting. You'll also find some models crafted with metal frames and wooden support slats for the mattress. For larger free standing Murphy beds, there might be a metal dual-piston system that makes it easy to pull out. A bi-fold or tri-fold mattress often folds out with center supports and feet on the bottom to give added strength.

Size:

In its accommodating and practical nature, you can find free standing Murphy beds in twin, full, or queen sizes. Alyssa Kapito suggests opting for a taller queen-size free standing Murphy bed if you have at least 86 inches of ceiling clearance for the unit to stand when it's not in use. For a queen-size free standing Murphy bed that sits inside a wood cabinet, you'll find some that are approximately 58 inches wide by 20 inches deep when the mattress is folded up inside. If you're looking for something slightly smaller, there are twin or full-size free standing Murphy beds that measure around 48 inches tall and 16 inches deep when the bed is tucked inside the unit.

Style:

If you're looking for a modern farmhouse style, a white solid rubberwood free standing Murphy bed that features a tongue and groove panelled front with chrome handles and bottom drawers that unfold into a full-size bed for guests makes an inspired choice. For more of a traditional look that would fit in any home space, Corey Damen Jenkins suggests a cherry wood full-size free standing murphy bed with cabinet-like doors that would make sense for both a guest room and home office. And for something that would fit into a French country bedroom space, a cabinet-style free standing Murphy bed made out of solid aged oak with Tudor-style panelling across the front would match up well with hardwood flooring and cream-colored walls.

Additional features:

It can be beneficial when you find a free standing Murphy bed with a mattress included as well as a built-in headboard and footboard to create a finished bedroom-like atmosphere for when guests visit. Leyden Lewis recommends finding a free standing Murphy bed that comes with a cool gel memory foam topper for the mattress to create a comfortable sleep experience for friends and family. If you're continually looking to incorporate more storage space into your home, there are lots of free standing Murphy beds with built-in storage, drawers, and shelving available as well. For easy access, there are also some modern units that come with integrated chargers and electrical outlets. Some free standing Murphy beds also come with casters on the bottom that allow you to be able to move them from room to room.
