I’ve designed several Murphey beds lately in basements. They are great when you want to use a room for multiple uses. Both of the following examples are from recent Stapleton basement I designed. Six foot wide pocket doors separate the family room from this play room/guest bedroom, so when the Murphey bed is up and the doors are open, the room is a play room well connected to the family room. But the room can quickly transform to a guest bedroom. bed closed bed open And in this couple’s basement family room, not one, but two queen Murphey beds can accommodate all four of their granddaughters for sleepovers in a flash.
