Wallbeds, commonly confused with Murphy beds, use a spring mechanism slightly different than Murphy beds and have built-in cabinets on both sides!

This causes the bed to appear to be embedded into a Wall when in the upright position. While many people find them to be chunky or ‘too much’ for their bedroom, they can be pretty space-saving and efficient for some. If you are looking to buy a Wall Bed for your bedroom or are still trying to figure out if it’ll be beneficial, keep reading to know five benefits of wallbeds that would make you want one NOW!
1. They are Very Space-saving
If you’ve looked up Wallbeds online, the one common feature everyone harps upon is how space-efficient these beds are, and rightfully so! If you live in a small-sized house with limited floor space, getting a wall bed would be an ideal choice since it is designed for the sole purpose of being space-efficient. You could keep it folded during the daytime to be able to enjoy your room to the fullest and then unfold it during the night to rest.
2. No More Making the Bed Every Morning
These beds are straightforward to use since their competent spring mechanisms help hold the bed in place and allow smooth movement when folding or unfolding the bed. This allows the bed to remain in position, that is, it doesn’t fold back when you are on it. It also unfolds downwards easily and slowly to avoid any accidents, such as hitting your head on the bottom of the bed.
The fitted mattress and strap allow the bedsheet to stay in place when you fold the mattress back in the morning. Thus, you don’t have to worry about making the bed every time you unfold it. The pillows are held in their place too.
3. Multi-purpose Use Cases
The cabinets around your bed give you plenty of room to work with, quite literally! Wallbeds are designed for you to have space on the wall to avoid clutter around the room; vertical storage space is maximized for usage. You can use it as a library, storage shelf, open clothing cabinets, showcase for personal trinkets, art, and more.
4. You can also Customize your Wallbed
Gone are the days where you could just buy one of the wallbeds you saw and not have any alterations done to suit your needs. You can easily customize your bed to fit your room and requirements anywhere.
– You can select the size of the bed: single, queen or king-sized
– You can select the kind of finish you want; if it’s wooden, you could get a polish, or if it’s metal-framed, you could choose the colors, etc.
– You can choose between bi-folded, open, or closed cabinets.
– You can add built-in reading lights to the accents.
– You can also have a pull-out, folded table added onto the side of your bed.
5. Easy to Move
If you decide to move, don’t be intimidated by the thought of moving your wall bed. Wallbeds are easy to disassemble and reassemble. You can break it apart, shift to the new house and reassemble the setting back once you read the new place. You could even hire movers to do the same for you.
Setting up your bedroom is a personal choice which impacts your mental state and energy daily; after all, that’s where you lay down to rest after a long day of work and let your mind wander. Something that is even more important is the kind of bed you have since it affects your health directly. Make sure to have a theme, decor, bed, and room setting that best suits your needs.
