Don’t know what Murphy Bed is? A Murphy bed hides when not in use – usually vertically or horizontally, behind cabinets, opening up your floor space for other use. A Murphy bed is a great option for a guest room or college room. They work great in single room apartments, or even in children’s rooms. An bed such as this is actually a combination of other IKEA furniture pieces, assembled to become a Murphy bed.
There is something crisp and clean about walking into a room with open floor space and decorative cabinets along the wall. With an IKEA Murphy bed system, this is exactly what you get – a crisp, clean feeling, where your space is multi-functional. When evening rolls around and its time to climb into bed, you just open up the cabinets, and very easily fold down your bed. Then, come morning, when you need the floor space for anything from crafts and hobbies, to a place for the kids to play, you just fold the bed easily into the cabinet.
This is great option for college students renting loft apartments – it’s an affordable bedding solution that allows you to make the most of your space. When you don’t have much space to begin with, making the most of it is essential. Even seniors can benefit from this space saving option – many senior apartments are confined spaces, and being able to hide your bed behind beautiful cabinets gives a room a whole new feel for the daytime hours.
So, whether you are trying to make more room for your kids to play during the day, or want to be able to set up a craft table and work on your favorite hobby, an IKEA Murphy bed design may be just the option for you.

What is a Murphy bed?
Quite simply, it is a bed you hide behind cabinets when not in use. The bed is hinged to the wall, and you fold it down to sleep on it, and then fold it up during the day. You can build a Murphy bed in a twin or full size for children, or all the way up to queen size for guest rooms and even your every night sleeping options. IKEA Murphy bed plans will get you a bed that is generally more comfortable than hideaway sofa beds – plus then your sofa will still be comfortable, too. Murphy beds work great for all kinds of spaces – from guest rooms to apartments and college dorms. Some people like to use them in children’s room because during the day it allows the kids more room to play in their bedroom, then at night you just fold down the bed and go to sleep. This also keeps kids from jumping on the bed during the day – reducing the risk of an injury from falling.
Why use IKEA Murphy bed plans to build a hidden bed?
Usually to conserve space during the day when you aren’t sleeping. The bed tucks neatly into the custom cabinets, giving you the floor space you need to entertain guests, let the kids play, or whatever else you need the floor space for. Folding the bed into the cabinet instantly gives your room the sense of being clean, open and clutter-free. If you have family that likes to come visit, but you don’t want to dedicate your spare room to being only a guest room, you can find IKEA Murphy bed plans to make one for when they come over. Then, when no one is using the room as a guest room, you can tuck away your Murphy bed and use the space for whatever you need – crafts and hobbies, art, or as an in-home office.
