Murphy Bed Alternative — Cabinet Bed

A Murphy bed, also known as a wall bed, is a space-saving bed that can be folded up and stored vertically against a wall when not in use. This allows for the efficient use of space in small apartments or rooms. However, a Murphy bed can be quite heavy and difficult to maneuver, and it also requires a significant amount of wall space.

On the other hand, a cabinet bed is a newer alternative to the traditional Murphy bed. It is essentially a freestanding cabinet that can be easily converted into a bed by simply pulling it out from the cabinet. Cabinet beds are typically more compact than Murphy beds and can be easily moved around the room, making them a more versatile option for smaller spaces. Additionally, cabinet beds often come with built-in storage space, eliminating the need for additional furniture. Overall, a cabinet bed offers a more modern and convenient alternative to the traditional Murphy bed.

About the Cabinet Bed

The Cabinet Bed is a standalone bed stored within a cabinet design. Just like a typical shelving unit, the frame is constructed from wood and multiple hardware pieces. However, our Cabinet Bed is so much more than a simple piece of furniture used for storage. In just 30 seconds, you can transform this beautiful, free-standing cabinet into a comfortable bed.

Every piece is made from quality, Canadian Birch plywood with no cheap MDF or Particle Board in sight. The premium hardware guarantees durability and creates a smooth transition from cabinet to bed. Customizable with high grade finishes in a variety of colours and hardware options makes it suitable for any style of home. Lastly, the CertiPUR-US Certified memory foam mattress is thick and comfortable, offering great support for every type of sleeper.

Features of Cabinet Bed

Cabinet Beds are designed and manufactured in British Columbia, Canada. Unlike modern Murphy Beds, each and every Cabinet Bed is made from materials sourced here in Canada, ensuring quality hardware, support, and durable construction. From the solid wood bed frame to the stylish cabinet exterior, this sets our hideaway beds apart from the Murphy Bed mechanism. Furthermore, most wall beds come with cheap foam mattresses that are thin and lacking support. To enhance overall comfort, this piece of furniture is optimized with a premium memory foam mattress.

Unlike our Murphy Bed Canada competitors, we don't cut corners by finding the cheapest manufacturing costs. Rather, we focus on creating attractive design styles, sturdy construction, and quality hardware. In other words, we don't skimp on the details!
