How a Murphy bed works might be top of mind when you’re wondering if a space saving wall bed is right for your home. Many people picture an old-fashioned, pull-out couch hide-a-bed with a heavy, clunky metal frame that often pinches fingers. At Wallbeds “n” More in Reno, Nevada, however, we use the safest frame mechanisms and most state of the art technology so that opening and closing your wall bed is simple and safe. 

What begins as a home office with a desk and bookshelves can easily transition to a beautiful guest bedroom whenever you have visitors in town. Your home gym can transform in the blink of an eye into a space for family staying for the holidays, or your child’s play room can quickly metamorphosize into a comfortable sleepover space on the weekends. 

At Wallbeds “n” More in Reno, each custom Murphy bed is both stylish and functional and can reinvigorate your home and maximize your space. 


How Exactly a Murphy Bed Works

When you’re ready to convert your space, all you need to do is simply open or close your wall bed. The mattress, which can be up to 11 inches thick, and bedding, including the pillows, can remain on the bed whether or not the bed is folded up into the wall. This means you can always be ready for unexpected guests to arrive with a freshly made bed! 

Each custom Murphy bed pulls right down from the wall with a simple piston system that is smooth and easy for one person to do by him or herself. Simply raising the bed up or folding it down is a breeze and can be done in less than a minute without any hurt backs or pinched fingers. Depending on the model, our wall beds have different fold down, locking leg mechanisms as well to make them extra secure. 


A Custom Murphy Bed Just for You

At Wallbeds “n” More in Reno, our Murphy beds can be customized to a certain extent to fit the needs and decor of your home. Some of the pieces that can be customized on our Murphy beds are: 

  • Bookcases
  • Desks
  • Shelving
  • Cabinets
  • Chests
  • Hardware style and color
  • Wood stain and color
  • USB outlets and built in lighting packages. 


Customize Your Mattress Choice

Because the Murphy bed models are made to hold mattresses up to 11 inches thick, you can often use your existing mattress as long as it is 11 inches or under. If you would prefer a new mattress, you can choose your own in our showroom to make sure it aligns with exactly the right firmness or softness that you desire.

Simply make an appointment or stop by our Reno, Nevada showroom, so you can see and try out a large selection of mattresses. A custom Murphy bed means you can add piers with different storage features to either one side or both sides of most of our Murphy bed models depending on the size of the wall you are securing the custom Murphy bed to.
