To Wall Mount Or Not?
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. It is cleverly fixed to the wall giving it stability and making it seemingly disappear into the wall or behind furniture. In the other option, the bed is a free-standing one. 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.
