For years we have had a daybed in our guest bedroom.A daybed is an odd type of space-saving bed that takes up a lot space.When it's retracted, it's too deep to use for seating.When it's made into a bed, it's uncomfortable and the two sections tend to separate.
This small bedroom gets used for guests maybe once or twice a year, hardly justifying wasting half its space with a bed.The answer is a Murphy bed.Mine contains a full-sized mattress and when in its upright position, takes up a mere 16″ x 60″ (40cm x 152cm) of floor space.
