In today’s world, there are so many uses for a desk, or workstation, that you could easily include one in each room. There’s no need to waste space, however, when you can incorporate a desk into a wall bed to make your rooms multi-functional.
Types of Desk Wall Beds
Desk wall beds can be configured as horizontal or vertical.
In a horizontal wall bed, the desk fronts the cabinet containing the bed itself. Due to its ingenious design, everything stays put – even that big jumble of papers, your laptop and books – while the bed is pulled out. It’s a very simple process and quickly hides a mess when company arrives.
Vertical wall beds are another option. The desks in these wall beds can either be part of the front cabinet panel of the bed, or attached alongside as desk returns, next to piers.
At Murphy Beds of San Diego, you can design an entire workstation that begins with a wall bed. Then, choose to add side pieces for filing, book storage or display. Include a desk, or a pair of desks on one or either side. The possibilities are almost endless. View our examples below for ideas to use in your own custom desk wall bed.
Desk Wall Bed Uses
There are many ways to use a desk wall bed in your home. Here are just a few:
