Painted Millwork Design Trend and Custom Murphy Bed Wall System Feature

What are the major design trends you can expect to see in 2022? For one, our homes are getting more colorful. Gone are the drab days of solidly drab neutrals and in are happy, bright hues that celebrate positive change. With that in mind, many homeowners are ready to change the color on their walls. But what about millwork, such as the custom wood features you can order along with a high-quality Murphy wall bed system? Here is what you need to know.

What is Millwork?

One of the niftiest features of a custom Murphy wall bed system is that it is just that – a custom system of cabinetry. And because it is made specifically for a space in terms of measurements, matching wood features and trim, all these custom Murphy wall bed features qualify the cabinetry as millwork. Simply put, the term millwork is described as building materials – particularly wood – are manufactured at a factory. Common examples of millwork include doors, mantels, staircases, etc. – anything that must be customized for a specific space.
