As Seattle becomes a more and more dense city, and people are living in homes of all shapes and sizes, space-saving solutions are of the essence. Twice as of recent, clients have brought a fun idea to the table, no pun intended. The Murphy bed has been a great option for clients, for both functionality and style.
In the Laurelhurst Whole House Remodel, the couple found that their one guest bedroom wasn’t quite enough space for regular visits from family. However, because one of the homeowners works from home often, it didn’t make sense to convert her office to another guest room altogether. The Murphy bed was the perfect solution to have the best of both worlds. The space easily changes over from a table to a bed, depending on the need. See photos above.
In the Fremont Houseboat project, maximizing space within limited square footage was a necessity. The homeowner has two young kids who live with him part time. During the home’s remodel, the crew converted the single sleeping loft into two separate spaces with pocket doors for the kids, but the client needed his own sleeping solution, too. The Murphy bed was it. The homeowner ordered Resource Furniture’s Ulisse Dining Murphy bed. Its special feature is the way the table smoothly tucks under the bed when the bed reclines, even with items left on the table. Now, the area adjacent to the houseboat’s kitchen can function as both a dining room and a bed for the homeowner. See preliminary photos of the houseboat Murphy bed above.
