Fun Wall Bed Facts
A few wall bed facts from California Closets San Luis Obispo:
- The Wall bed was actually invented in California! In 1900, San Francisco resident William L. Murphy saw a way to create two rooms with two separate functions from his small, one-room apartment. These beds, which are also called "Murphy" beds, have been quite popular all over ever since.
- A Wall bed can really be any size. You can have any size from twin to king, and use standard or pillow-top mattresses up to 12 inches deep. The pillows and bed linens are fastened securely in place in their wall or cupboard, ready to be curled up on when the bed is lowered to the horizontal position.
- Some people think wall beds are flimsy. A wall bed is actually really, really strong! Bed legs can hold at least 1500 lbs. The best kind of wall bed is one made from strong, heavy gauge steel or aluminum frames which are secured to a spring loaded counter balanced mechanism that allows easy, one-handed operation.
