Murphey Bed – Murphy’s bed is a folding bed, patented by the American inventor William Murphy around 1900. This space-saving bed folds into a wall, closet or cabinet and lowers to sleep. Murphy beds are popular in efficiency apartments, rooms, and dorms that double as home offices or some other space. Other bed styles can offer less expensive alternatives and offer the same space saving advantages of Murphy beds.
If you want furniture that does double duty, choose sofas, seats, chairs, and ottomans until they become beds. Converting furniture usually involves removing the top pads and pulling out a frame and a folding mattress. You will need to have enough space in the room to unfold the bed and bed with sheets, blankets, and pillows after you have unfolded. Choose an armchair or love seat from a small bed for one person. If you have more space you can opt for a sofa that turns up into a full or Queen bed.

Beds that are inflated with an electric or manual air pump are easy to store and can provide a comfortable place to rest. Inflatable beds are up to a foot thick and are available as full and queen mattresses. The beds should be deflated for storage, although you can lean against a wall to get them out of the way for a few days. Not as convenient as convertible furniture or Murphy beds, but they are very cheap and portable. You can take it with you for a trip in a container the size of a small suitcase.
