You have two options when it comes to installing a Murphy bed, in terms of its mounting. A built-in bed is mounted on the wall such that it is a permanent installation.

These are mobile and can be taken with you if leave the house and wish to carry it to your new home. These are also perfect if you are a tenant whose rent agreement doesn’t allow you to make changes to the wall and the floor, ruling out the possibility of a traditional wall-mounted Murphy Bed.

The wonderful advantage of a convertible bed like the Murphy bed is that you can integrate display shelves and storage into it. To do so, you can custom design open storage and closed storage around the wall bed. Open storage will make the space look airy and big and some stylishly arranged display pieces will further enliven and brighten the room. Closed storage either in the form of closet shelves or drawers will keep your household items safe and free from dust and prying eyes. Use either closed or open storage or a combination of the two in conjunction with the Murphy bed to utilise the full potential of the space. The storage can be built along one side of the bed frame or on both sides, depending on the dimensions of the space and your storage needs.

If your storage needs warrant it, go the whole hog and install a wardrobe cum bed. The Murphy bed and a wardrobe for bedroom are integrated in such a manner that you get the best of both worlds. When the bed is not in use and folded away, what you will see is an innocuous-looking wardrobe. When open, not only will you have the bed that you need, but you will also have some cleverly hidden wardrobe storage. By utilising the wall panel behind the multipurpose bed as a closet, two birds are snagged using one stone.  Moreover, you don’t have to stop with the wardrobe behind the bed. Extend the wardrobe in the form of cabinetry around the wall folding bed to result in a full-size wardrobe cum bed that will store all your clothes and accessories and double up as a collapsible bed.
