About Wall Bed
A wall bed is a great choice for homes or flats that do not have much floor space. Also called Murphy beds, these devices flip up against a wall or inside a cabinet when not needed. Available on eBay from single up to king sizes, many of these devices come in attractive cabinets, making the bed completely hidden away either vertically or horizontally. Lifting the bed up is easy since wall beds feature mechanisms, such as gas struts or springs, to counterbalance the weight and control the motion. These cabinet beds use standard size mattresses up to 25 cm thick so you will never have trouble finding new mattresses to fit an older frame. This furniture is an excellent choice for those living in one-room apartments, homeowners dealing with limited spacing, or people who want a guest bed available without having it constantly in the way. If your bedroom seems too tightly packed, consider switching to a wall bed to give yourself more space.
