Beds that Look Like a Cabinet - A Gorgeous Space Saving Solution

Beds that Look Like Cabinets
Beds that Look Like Cabinets

Funky, interesting home decor finds is a passion of mine. Different styles of furniture are of particular interest.

Furniture that looks like one thing but doubles as another is so much fun!
Beds that look like cabinets are a form of a Murphy Bed. As you probably know already, the standard Murphy Bed is one that folds down from the wall. These particular beds fold into a waist-high cabinet instead.

Cabinet Beds Fold Into a Wall Cabinet

If you've never seen one of these convenient beds, check out the selection I've featured below.

Typically you'll find these in queen size. You'll have to check if they come in other bed sizes; most of the ones I've seen are queen bed cabinets.

As described, when not being used as a bed, they fold up into a lovely waist height wall cabinet. They're not cheap looking either! Notice below the various colors and wood types available.

Who Needs a Bed that Looks Like a Cabinet?

Everybody? Ok, not everybody. Here are some ideas:
  1. Bed cabinets are ideal for one-room apartments! Fold it up into a cabinet during the day and pull it out at night. You get the benefit of both a living room and a bedroom in one tiny space. Best of all you don't have to look at a bed all day. 
  2. Place one in a home office as an extra place for guests to sleep.
  3. When you don't have an extra bedroom, these lovely pieces look like living room furniture can go anywhere; living rooms, hallways, dining rooms. Not that you'd place one in a dining room, but hey, if the dining room is huge and can be closed off, why not!
  4. When you need a subtle extra sleeping area in a baby's room, these are ideal. They'll grow with baby, and of course, can be moved and fit nicely into any other part of the home.
  5. When grandma and grandpa downsize but don't have enough bedrooms for guests, this piece of furniture is the perfect extra sleeping spot!
  6. How about in Sheila's She-Shed or his Man-Cave? Bed cabinets are perfect! They don't take up a lot of space and serve as an extra spot to sleep especially when you've been sent to the doghouse for the night.
  7. Budget permitting, this a perfect wedding or shower gift. Furnishings are a very personal thing, so you'll want to be sure to choose a piece that is something the recipient would like. Since they're quite expensive, you could purchase this as a group gift.
  8. Put one in a child's room as an extra place for their friends on sleepovers.
Here they are! If for some reason you can't view the products below, you can see them on their Product Page here as well.

  1. These beds/cabinets are quite the furniture in some parts of Europe. I remember visiting family a few years ago and Murphy Beds were what they slept on every night. Space in some cities is very minimal, so these beds are just what they really need. They are quite comfortable too! I was genuinely surprised and pleased to see this innovative way to expand your space. Great idea for visiting family too!

  2. I've heard of Murphy Beds (stored in the wall) and, of course, am very familiar with sofa hideabeds, but did not know about these cabinet beds. Quite a unique and attractive piece of furniture. You do find the most unusual items, Barbara, along with clever solutions to space-saving problems.

  3. I absolutely love this idea! Seems like it could easily go in just about any room in the house and be the perfect bed for temporary guest. I'm using a day bed right now in my craft room, but the top in the cabinet bed would provide a display area or work area for me. I certainly see the value in a cabinet bed.

  4. My goodness, Murphy beds sure have come a long way since when I was a kid! These look not only much more attractive, but also more comfortable and practical. And I love the fact that, when folded up, they look like attractive cabinets, and no one would even guess there was a bed in the room. Another versatile, practical, and attractive home decor find!

  5. I have had an interest in building my own fabulous murphy bed in a cabinet for the past three years or so. Because they tend to be so expensive, and because I am a passionate DIYer, I prefer to buy the hardware kit and customize my own version. I can see, though, that many individuals won't have the time, tools, expertise, or desire to undertake a project like that. For them, the ready-to-go cabinets are perfect. What a great product to review.
