A growing family almost always needs additional living spaces. A recent article published in The Sacramento Bee discussed a space-efficient solution for this common homeowner’s dilemma:
The clients came to interior designer Laura Casey with a space dilemma: They did not want to give up the guest room in their suburban home, yet they needed a place for their child to play.
Casey came up with a solution often used in small urban apartments: a Murphy bed. It takes up less space than a sofa sleeper or futon and – unlike many of those – uses a standard mattress, so guests, including elderly grandparents, have a more comfortable stay.
Installing a Murphy bed to make the most out of a room’s available space is definitely a great idea. But this solution won’t work for just any room and it may not match your lifestyle or personal preferences. If you’re in desperate need for more space and a move to a bigger home is out of the question, why not consider an addition?
