Did you know that interior design can make your small space seem larger and actually add functionality? Wall beds, especially a Horizontal Murphy bed queen, are useful for narrow spaces and can be used for either your occasional overnight guests or as your own bed. 

The design of a horizontal wall bed folds into the wall on the long-edge of the mattress. The horizontal position of the bed suits rooms that are less deep. Minimal floor space is needed for the bed to extend out into the room, but wall space needs to be a bit wider.

Are you still wondering whether you need a horizontal wall bed or a vertical one? If so, scroll down to see what kinds of things to consider when choosing between a vertical or horizontal Murphy bed. 

When to Choose a Horizontal Murphy Bed

Perfect for Rooms with Short Ceilings 

If you have a room with short ceilings, fans or lighting features that hang low, vertical wall beds might not be the right choice. This is where many homeowners should choose a horizontal Murphy bed queen. Due to their wide and short design, these beds are suitable for spaces like basements, lofts and other rooms that have low ceilings. 

Enhance Flexibility in Less Deep Rooms 

Many times people deal with narrow rooms that aren’t very deep in both length and width, which can affect their flexibility to use the room space. The design of a horizontal Murphy bed helps you to utilize your whole room space despite a shallow dimension. 

Extra storage by way of shelving or cabinets on one or both sides of the bed is a helpful addition for extra storage. With a traditional, vertical wall bed the height is often too tall for anything but decorative items to be placed on top. With a vertical Murphy bed it’s a lot easier to use the space above the bed to place a shelf or items that are more frequently used. 

Free up Your Floor Space 

If you wish to free up the floor space of your condo, studio, apartment, or house, choose custom wall beds. The queen-sized Murphy bed will not only conserve your space but also allow it to be multi-functional. You can enjoy a Queen size mattress with the horizontal wall bed for optimal sleeping space while opening up floor space in a moment’s notice.
