Inside The Hidden Potential of Murphy Beds

A Bed by Any Other Name… 
The bed is named for William Lawrence Murphy (1876–1959), who applied for his first patents around 1900. According to legend, he was wooing an opera singer, but living in a one-room apartment in San Francisco, and the moral code of the time frowned upon a woman entering a man’s bedroom. Murphy’s invention converted his bedroom into a parlor, enabling him to entertain. Earlier fold up beds had existed, and were even available through popular catalogs, but Murphy introduced pivot and counterbalanced designs for which he received a series of patents on June 18, 1912.
Murphy Beds have rapidly grown in popularity over the past few years with the new loft developments in downtown St. Louis. Another reason is that Baby Boomers are reaching retirement age and Murphy Beds are a great option for guest rooms to accommodate visiting family.

Myth vs. Truth 
MYTH: A Murphy Bed would take up too much space.
TRUTH: The entire queen-sized Murphy Bed system is only 65.5" wide and 16" deep when bed is closed, and you only need 91" of floor space when you open it. It will also allow you to use your room for other purposes such as an office, family room or study. All of our Murphy Beds come with a mattress that is perfectly weighted and the correct size for the system. Murphy Beds are also available in twin sizes.

Top Area to Get Organized Over the Summer

Kid's Closets – Lose Excess Clutter 
Rather than being overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of getting your home decluttered, I personally think that the best way to attack home organization is to take it room by room. With summer almost here, let’s begin with the kids’ rooms, so grab your nearest child and get to work. 
Kids grow like weeds, so start by going through their clothes and toys making sure to get rid of the items that they do not wear or that do not fit anymore. Throw away or donate outgrown toys and games right away.
If you have a Saint Louis Closet Co. closet system in your child’s room, the next step would be to adjust the shelves and rods to maximize your space. The great thing about having a Saint Louis Closet Co. closet is that our systems are 100% adjustable, so your closets actually grow as your children grow. 
The best way to succeed in keeping your spaces organized is to make it something that the entire family can participate in. The earlier you get your children involved with keeping their own space and your home intact, the more likely organization will become a habit as they get older.
The rewards of staying organized will help simplify your life, and we could all use a little more of that in our lives.
