Murphy bed – how, where, for whom, which, for how much? So what are we most often asked in via messenger conversations, e-mails and on social media forums. We advise how to choose well and what to look for when buying a murhpy bed. To enjoy a good choice for years. We invite you to read. Today, the first part of the questions and answers:
A murphy bed – types
There are 3 basic variants of murphy beds available on the furniture market – a vertically and horizontally hidden bed (the so-called side-wall bed), a bunk bed. Each of them is designed to save as much space as possible. Which one to choose depends primarily on the amount of space we have. If the bed is to be placed in a full-height room – the decisive factor in choosing the model will be the comfort of use. A vertical murphy bed is better suited for adults and medium-tall people. A horizontally opened bed is the optimal choice for children, adolescents, elderly or shorter people. This bed, popularly known as a wallbed, is recommended especially for attics. They can be perfectly integrated into the sloping ceilings and places that are more difficult to access. It will also work great in very narrow rooms, where even after opening it will not block the passage. It is worth knowing that each of these folding beds requires a specific space adapted to the depth of the furniture. For traditional models, it is 44 cm, and when choosing a revolving bed, we need 60 cm. If we imagine that a full-size, traditional bed would stand in this place all the time, these expectations are small, but necessary.
How to make a murphy bed?
The murphy bed is a multifunctional piece of furniture that, thanks to modern solutions, can be adapted to the needs and expectations of virtually everyone. That is why in our offer we propose several ways to “make” your bed.

When choosing, you should take into account a longer implementation time (from 4 to 6 weeks) and the assembly of the furniture by a team of specialists. However, it is worth being patient. After a few weeks of waiting, we can enjoy our dream and custom-designed bed – one of a kind.
What to pay attention to when buying?
The answer is simple: quality. Multifunctional furniture is furniture in constant motion. They open, close, slide out and hide thousands of times. Therefore, the quality of their workmanship is crucial for the comfort of use, safety and convenience. The murphy bed must be solid and stable. And this, unfortunately, has to cost. A good murphy bed has a steel frame and steel legs. The heart of the furniture is the opening and closing mechanism. It should be reliable, supported by gas actuators – for the comfort of use. We chose Italian mechanisms for our beds, the quality of which is confirmed by a 10-year warranty. Another important element of the bed is the casing. It must withstand the weight of the mattress, changes in the center of gravity of the furniture and the user or users themselves. That is why, when designing the ClickBed bed models, we chose a 36 mm-thick board for the casing, and an 18 mm-thick board for the front. Before you decide to buy, it is worth checking what thickness parameters and technologies the bed you like best has. And how many years of warranty you will receive for the operation of the mechanisms used.
