You will see just how many choices you have in a minute, and you’re about to discover the benefits and advantages of owning a bed that folds.
First, to save the most space, the Murphy Bed might be the best option. The reason for that is it folds directly into the wall. Now you see it, now you don’t. In all seriousness, that’s one option you have. It’s a little more luxurious than this next type of folding bed. The next option is also a now you see it, now you don’t example. It is a sofa bed. Sofa beds fold out from underneath the cushions. They are an inexpensive solution, but perhaps not the most comfortable of all your choices.
The sofa beds do make a great choice if you want a couch and bed in the same space though. No one is able to sit on a Murphy Bed when it’s up in the wall, nor do you want to typically place anything heavy in its way when not in use. You would have to habitually move whatever it is out of the way when the Murphy Bed is in use.
There are advantages to different types of beds that fold as you can see. There are also futon style couches that fold more simply into beds themselves. They are a what you see is what you get style option. They simply fold back, creating a bed out of the two sections of the couch, the seat, and the back. Together, you have a sizable mattress when folded appropriately.
The hospital type beds are another folding bed option and are really popular these days. They are usually described using a different term because no one that is well wants to think about having a hospital bed in their bedroom. Truth be told, I don’t know why anyone who is well wants that type of bed. It’s eerily unnerving if you ask me. But there are all different kinds of beds that fold, and they certainly come with their advantages, cheifly maximizing space.
