At Wallbeds n’ More in Campbell, California we want to help you make the most of your space. Selecting the right Murphy bed is essential to add functionality and style to your home. Choosing a horizontal and vertical wall bed can help open up your home’s space and maximize your usable floor area as well. But how do you know whether to choose a vertical or horizontal Murphy bed?
When to Select a Horizontal Murphy Bed
Consider a horizontal wall bed unit if:
- Your room has low ceilings
- Light fixtures or ceiling fans hang down low
- You have existing built-in furniture such as shelving around the top of the room
- You are putting the wall bed in a loft, attic, or basement where ceilings are lower
- The room does not have much depth.
The short stature and wider design of a horizontal Murphy bed means it can add a unique look and functionality to your room without the bed extending into the room as far as a vertical wallbed. Some of our popular horizontal models include: the Standard Desk Bed, the Deluxe Desk Bed, Barrington Horizontal, and the Portola model.
When to Choose a Traditional, Vertical Murphy Bed
Consider a vertical wall bed unit if:
- Your room has a lofted, a-frame, or otherwise tall ceiling
- You desire a piece of furniture that looks like it is built to the wall from floor to ceiling
- You have tall windows, or windows that are close together, framing the bed
- You have a larger room that would look more complete with a larger piece of furniture
To see the difference in dimensions and appearance, take a look at some of our more popular vertical Murphy bed models such as the Barrington, Fallbrook, Keystone, or Library. Each wallbed model page includes a specifications document that shows the exact dimensions.
Flexibility in Styles
No matter which wall bed style you choose, a horizontal Murphy bed or a vertical Murphy bed, each comes with many similar benefits. You can rest assured that you are getting the most out of your furniture.
