Some homeowners may be looking for ways to create more space, especially since buying a big new house may not be an option right now. And although the idea of having a “wall bed” or Murphy bed may not be the first item on your list, you might want to consider it.

According to a Wall Street Journal article, Murphy beds have come a long way from their rickety roots and are on the upswing. Most of the new designs blend more effectively with surroundings and can hold any mattress size, from twin to California king, making them more comfortable than sofa beds or futons. The beds also help to double a room size, which is ideal for converting one room into an office and guest room. Newer versions of Murphy beds have also improved lifting and lowering mechanisms, which can require just as much effort for a futon and be faster than blowing up an air mattress.
