Murphy bed. Hide a bed. When we hear those names we think, "Hidden in the wall," right? Not so with these hidden beds, as they pop out from here, there and everywhere.
Our first entry, pictured above, lowers just like an elevator. As the retailer notes, there's no need to move any furniture when it's time to use it.
This next bed takes up more room than a ceiling bed, but it IS hidden. A shove of the bookcase reveals all!
This one is a home theater/bedroom combo.
Of course if you want to watch TV in bed, you're out of luck.
Here's another one from the same retailer as above.
With the bed in the down position, the space looks like a traditional bedroom.
If only every college dorm room would look like this.
How about this crazy combo? A zipper foam-y thing that hugs bookcase cubbies during the day, only to be pulled apart and reassembled on the floor. Now that's a clever way to hide a bed. (I think it's totally DIYable, no?)
How about a Murphy bunk bed situation? As shown, the price on this one clocks in at $3,718.
Just so the fur-children don't feel left out, here's a Murphy just for them:
Okay, the bed isn't hidden for this next entry, but it was too cool not to include in our roundup. The bed in this home slides to the side and reveals a spa bath.
These next two hidden beds are made one-of-a-kind by their owners. Perfect for the sports fan:
And for the Dr. Who fan:
And, finally, is this table turned bed. I spotted it an an antiques website. It was called the Ta-Bed, and, by the look of it, it was kinda genius. Of course, you had to stash the mattress elsewhere.
