What are Murphy beds?

Murphy beds, also known as wall beds, are convenient beds that fold up and into the wall to maximize space in your home. Great for overnight guests who need somewhere to sleep, Murphy beds give you the freedom to have a multipurpose room, and avoid having to dedicate an entire room to guests full-time.

Why are Murphy beds making a comeback?
