6 Reasons To Swap From An Inflatable Mattress To A Retractable Murphy Bed

We've all had that moment where our family and friends want to come over to stay and we think “what are they going to sleep on?”. How many times have you had to say "we'd love for you to stay over, but we just don't have the space." Or settled for apologetically blowing up an inflatable mattress for your guests. Well, perhaps you should consider investing in a Retractable Murphy Bed - here are 6 reasons why that might be the best thing you do this year!

1. Murphy Beds last much longer

Typically inflatable mattresses only last a few years, they often get holes in them and are thrown away. Murphy Beds last a lifetime if they are looked after properly and come in a range of finishes and fabrics to suit your style.

2. You can quickly and easily make up a Murphy Bed

If you have friends over for dinner and they decide to stay, the convenience of a motorized Murphy Bed is that you simply have to use the remote control and you have a bed at the push of a button. There’s no messing around with air pumps, and sitting on the floor whilst it inflates, a Murphy Bed is ready to go.

3. A Murphy Bed is much more comfortable

You just can’t beat sleeping on a comfy mattress, you’ll definitely sleep better than if you were on an inflatable bed. It’ll feel more like you’re sleeping in your own bed and you’ll wake up ready for the day.

4. That which inflates, can also deflate

There’s nothing worse than waking up in the middle of the night on the cold hard floor, especially after a long night of socializing with your friends and family. Most air beds will get a hole at some point during their time and you never know when it’s going to happen! With a Zoom Room Bed you can be guaranteed that you won’t have to worry about that problem ever again.

5. Murphy Beds won't get damaged when they’re in the cabinet

When you store away your electric Murphy Bed it is safe and secure in the cabinet until the next time you use it. You don’t have to worry about people moving it and damaging it with other items as it’s stored away. Inflatable beds tend to get damaged when they are kept in an attic or garage as they aren’t as easily protected. This can lead to them being damaged and needing to be thrown in the trash.

6. You don’t have to worry about storage

Most inflatable beds end up in the loft or in the garage as we often don’t have the space to store them as they are so bulky. You’ll probably end up losing the pump for it as well… Retractable Murphy Beds are housed in an elegant cabinet, so they are multi-purpose. They simply retract into the cabinet when not in use.

How does the Retractable Murphy Bed work?

It’s super easy, you simply press the wireless remote, and the bed does the rest of the work. All of our beds come with Zoom-Room’s premium foam mattress, so you don’t have to worry about a bad night's sleep. The mattress is supported by a European-style slatted frame, and the bed simply glides down a vertical track hidden inside an elegant cabinet.
