I just revealed my DIY murphy bed built-ins in my basement guest room this week and WHEW! It was a lot of work but it is perfectly customized to what I was needing.
Extra storage: Check. Built-in shelves to make the room a bit more “pretty” and store some of necessary items for my guests: Check. A bed that is there for guests when they arrive, but tucked nicely away when they are not: Check. A room that has completely opened up in our home without having to pay for a costly addition, move kids into a room together, or chop our master in half to make another room: Check.
But I realize that a month worth of DIY isn’t necessarily in the cards for some people. I can show you how to do it all, but if you don’t have the time, you have to look for other options.
So today I’m sharing the newest edition of Buy It Over Build It. I’m sharing some of the most beautiful options that Murphy Bed Depot has to offer that requires minimal installation and NO DIY (and all the reasons why they are a dream company to purchase through)!!
1 // Majestic Library Bed: Supreme – These library beds are INCREDIBLE!! The look for built-ins and all the storage you need in a guest room/office/playroom, and then the two front cabinets SLIDE OPEN and a bed tilts down. With this option, there are 7 finish options to make this exactly what you are dreaming of without ANY of the DIY!
2 // Queen Size Boaz BiFold Bookcase Murphy Bed – Just like the Majestic Library Bed above…with a little different look. This is solely bookshelves with no cabinets underneath. I love the varying looks of this concept without changing how the mechanism works.
3 // Sagebrush Murphy Cabinet Bed – Talk about a space-saving, brilliant piece of furniture! This CABINET opens up and becomes a bed. WHAT?! I was blown away when I saw this for the first time and I’ve talked to many about how this could be used in their homes to save them major space while taking up minimal room itself. If you don’t have the correct space for a full wall of bookcase or shelves, this could be the solution you’ve been looking for!
4 // BLACK Majestic Library Bed: Supreme – This bed flys off the shelves regularly…and for very good reason. The black is so sleek and looks so custom in your home. Imagine having this look without having to do any of the DIY parts. A dream!
5 // “Suite Dreams” Queen Size, With Side Cabinets – This is the most similar to the panel bed that I created from the hardware kit. Cabinets and shelves built directly into the panel from the start. You just need to do minor assembling and you have an almost identical piece to what I customized in my room. A HUGE time-saver if you’re looking for a similar look without the DIY.
Working with Murphy Bed Depot has been a dream. The customer service at this family-owned company has been second to none. I’ve been blown away by the assistance they have from every turn. You can order and have in-stock beds shipped out and delivered to your front steps FOR FREE within the week. Local and want it assembled? Just ask. Need to speak to someone for assistance? Just call the store and you’ll talk to the family in charge. From someone who tends to purchase from large, big box businesses, I have welcomed the ability to speak to a knowledgeable person from the second the phone is picked up. No stress, no struggle. You can just be helped. Murphy Bed Depot for a MAJOR win! A company that I’ve loved from the moment I found their brilliant beds!
