Creating the Perfect Guest Room with a Murphy Bed: Tips and Tricks - Kootenay Murphy Beds

 In today's fast-paced world, having a guest room that serves multiple purposes is more important than ever. Enter the Murphy bed – a versatile and space-saving solution that allows you to transform any room into a comfortable guest space without sacrificing valuable square footage. In this blog post, we'll explore tips and tricks for creating the perfect guest room with a Murphy bed.

  • Choose the Right Murphy Bed: The first step in creating the perfect guest room is selecting the right Murphy bed for your space. Consider factors such as the size of the room, the style of the bed, and any additional features you may want, such as built-in storage or a stay level desk. From queen and double beds for larger spaces to twin and bunk beds for cozy nooks, Kootenay Beds has something for everyone-check our murphy beds here.
  •  Optimize Space: Murphy beds are renowned for their space-saving qualities, making them ideal for smaller guest rooms or multi-functional spaces. To maximize space further, consider incorporating built-in storage solutions such as shelving or drawers to keep clutter at bay. Also, consider our beautiful solid wood storage trunks for storing pillows, blankets and other accesories for your guest room.
  •  Comfort is Key: While space-saving is essential, comfort should never be compromised. Invest in a high-quality mattress that provides adequate support and comfort for your guests. Consider adding plush bedding, pillows, and throws to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere.
  • Accessorize Thoughtfully: Pay attention to the details when accessorizing your guest room. Incorporate bedside tables with reading lamps, a small dresser or wardrobe for storing clothing, and decorative accents such as artwork or plants to add personality to the space.
  •  Provide Ample Lighting: Good lighting is essential in any guest room. Ensure that the room is well-lit with a combination of overhead lighting, task lighting, and ambient lighting options. Consider installing dimmer switches to allow guests to adjust the lighting to their preference.
  • Incorporate Functional Furniture: In addition to the Murphy bed, consider incorporating other functional furniture pieces that can serve multiple purposes. For example, a fold-down desk or wall-mounted shelves can provide additional workspace or storage when needed.

These units can offer additional storage and display space for books, decorative items, or personal mementos. Tailoring these units to your specific needs and style can enhance the functionality and aesthetic of your guest room.
  •  Add Personal Touches: Make your guests feel welcome by adding personal touches to the room. Consider including a selection of books, magazines, or a curated playlist for entertainment. A small basket of toiletries or a handwritten welcome note can also go a long way in making guests feel at home.
  • Provide Privacy: If your guest room doubles as a home office or living space, consider adding a room divider or curtain to provide privacy when the bed is in use. This will allow guests to have their own space and feel comfortable during their stay.
  • Test Run: Before welcoming guests, be sure to test out the Murphy bed yourself to ensure that it operates smoothly and is comfortable to sleep on. Make any necessary adjustments or upgrades to ensure that your guests have a restful night's sleep.
  • Maintenance and Care: Finally, be sure to provide guests with clear instructions on how to operate the Murphy bed and any other features in the room. Regularly inspect and maintain the bed to ensure that it remains in good working condition for years to come.

In conclusion, creating the perfect guest room with a Murphy bed is all about balance – balancing space-saving functionality with comfort and style. By following these tips and tricks, you can create a welcoming and functional space that your guests will love to call their own 😊
