Design Trend: Murphy Beds

August 15, 2014   |   Design Dilemmas, Design Trend, Showroom Scoop

Do you have a small space to work with and want to make the most of it? This week’s design trend focuses on practicality in design. More specifically, Murphy beds. These space-saving, practical, “put away” beds allow for a versatile space in your home and offer solutions to maximize space in a smaller area.

Do you have a kid off to college coming up in a few weeks? Maybe you want to be able to use the room for those still in the home, but still make them feel welcome when they come back? Tylor Devereaux, one of the talented interior designers we work with, offers his expertise about this topic in Michigan Home and Lifestyle magazine‘s Fall 2014 issue, on stands now.

1. Inset Wood | The contrast of wood and the lighter finish adds drama to the sleek lines of the bed.

2. Open Shelving | Open shelving adds interest, as well as the ability to display personal items.

 

 

3. Concealed | Surrounding the Murphy bed with cabinetry and applying molding will conceal the bed, as well as create a focal point of cabinetry.
