1. Use your wall space for storing almost everything. I can't say enough about the benefits of the Murphy bed. More comfortable than the ubiquitous sleeper sofa, the Murphy bed folding up against the wall is the best option for getting that spare bed out of the way and giving you maximum floor space for your office. Notice that even the little side table by the bed will slide back in to the display shelving on the wall. Wall storage above the desk gives you room for tools and materials for other activities without taking up floor space.
