Murphy beds, or a hideaway beds, have become increasingly popular with homeowners in recent years as they can save huge floor space in small houses or tiny apartments. These beds come in two models: Murphy wall-beds and Murphy cabinet beds.
Murphy wall-beds are the easiest and quickest to fold down as they are attached to a wall and just pull down when needed. You can even leave the bedding and pillows on the bed as most models come with anchor straps to hold the mattress when it is in vertical position.
Cabinet Murphy beds are ideal when you have guests over as they take less space than wall beds and can be easily taken for a cabinet. Cabinet beds need slightly more time and effort to assembly than wall beds and should be used only occasionally as latches may start having issues after frequent use. For daily use we recommend a pull-down Murphy bed. Now, let’s have a look at our top picks for Murphy beds this year and what makes each model stand out.

This kit from Bestar contains a Murphy wall bed and a detachable 25” storage unit. The Pur 90″ Queen wall bed looks very classy as it is well designed and built from premium press board. It does not come with a mattress or box spring, but you won’t need a box spring as the patented Euroslat mattress support system makes the bed very comfortable.
You can install the storage unit next to the bed as shown in the picture or separately in the room, or you can order a second one instead to have two of them to mount on both sides of the bed. This versatile wall-bed is great for guest rooms, media rooms, studios, and home offices. Really great value for the price.

If you want a no-frills Murphy bed that will last a long time but you don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for it, then this wall bed is for you. Dozens of happy customers have reported that the BESTAR Nebula Full Wall Bed is holding up incredibly well (no scratches or dinks) after more than one year of plenty of use.
Just like the Pur model, this wall-bed sports the Euroslat mattress support system but it comes with no mattress. Just make sure that you buy a double or full mattress that weighs at least 70 lbs, as the unit’s dual-piston system doesn’t allow it to stay down with a lighter mattress. This model is ideal for turning a really small room into a multipurpose like a playroom/guestroom.
