Designed for Double Duty: Office & Guest Room with Murphy Bed

A Closet Works wall bed is more than just a bed in the wall.

This set up is ultra efficient for a small room that needs to do double duty as both office and guest bedroom. The Cocoa color system sets the tone of the room with simple, but traditional elegance. The frosted glass inserts in the doors lighten the appearance of the room, giving it an open, airy feeling that is so very important when working with small spaces. The Murphy bed stays hidden during the day behind a closed door, keeping the space all business with its focus on being a work center. The desk system wraps around a corner of the room. It includes both cabinets and open shelving for storage. A file drawer insert was included in the drawer next to the lower desk cabinet. Conveniently located to the right of the desk, staying organized in this home office is made easy by keeping the filing within reach even when the user is seated. At night, the bed can be folded out from the wall, creating a very comfortable room for sleeping, complete with a pull-out bedside table.

A small pull-out table next to the bed can be hidden when the space is used as as office, but opens like a drawer when needed.
