Many people love having these in guest bedrooms that double as an office. The option to put a Murphy bed anywhere allows for there to be flexibility. You could even have one in a playroom or have your kids’ beds be Murphy beds.

You can make it yourself.

A common problem for families is there is just not enough space for everything. Many families would love to have a playroom but their space does not allow it. However, by having a Murphy bed, you will be able to have the playroom and bedroom. The same solution goes for if you need an office and a guest room.
