Lately we took a good, hard look at our pricing and went back to square one. We examined the different costs – hardware, material, delivery etc… We discovered that we could do something unusual and refreshing! We could REDUCE the prices of our wallbeds and still be profitable! Some of our costs had changed in a favorable direction and so we are passing those changes on to YOU – our reason for being in business!

We are here because we like to be helpful.

We are here because we enjoy creative solutions to challenging problems.

We are here because we understand the value of your hard earned money and want to help you save it.

We are here because of YOU.

How, you may ask, does spending a couple thousand dollars help SAVE money? Check out our blogs about the real cost of homes here and here for some answers. Aside from the cost per square foot of your home, if you are renting, have you priced the cost and hassle of MOVING lately?? By adding a Wallbed or Murphy Bed to your home, it can turn a studio into a one bedroom, a one into a two and so on!

See? We just helped you with your limited space problem and saved you money at the same time!!!

Keep in mind, this is not a SALE.  These are new, lower prices and will only go up when material and production costs make a big leap.

Thank you for letting us stay in business!

Do Wallbeds or Murphy Beds Improve Small Homes, Small Rooms, and Studio Apartments?

Are wallbeds, aka Murphy Beds, really the answer for small homes, small rooms, and small Studio Apartments? Studio apartments benefit from wall beds/Murphy Beds, and how!! Imagine the puzzled look on your friends when you invite them over to your one-room studio and they see no bed, sleeper couch, or futon.  You become like the magician who spellbinds the audience with the flick of the wrist!  Ta-da! The wallbed comes down safely and effortlessly.  The wallbed goes up just as easy.  Everybody gets to try.  What a great ice-breaker!

It seems self-evident that wallbeds are the answers for small homes, small rooms, and studios!  But strangely enough, those who need this solution mostly grew up in an era where “plenty and spacious” were taken for granted. Check out Not So Big House for great ideas!

They have no idea that such a product exists, or if it does, it must be outdated, cumbersome, and plain dangerous.  I discovered these prevailing images in young shoppers’ minds as I spent untold hours attending our Wallbed and Murphy Bed display at the Costco Special Events around the greater Seattle area.

Studio_ApartmentWallbeds and Murphy Beds in small homes add square feet of useful floor space.  Why would you have a bed take up 30 – 35 sq feet of space, 365 days a year, instead of a wallbed that occupies an area 18 inches out from the wall?

Small rooms with wall beds/Murphy Beds are turned into play area for kids, exercise room for adults, and hobby room for arts and crafts! Shoppers liked to stop by and tell me how much they love their wall beds, and they are proud of being savvy and practical after decades of decadence and frivolous pursuit of bigger and better. More wallbed ideas here!

Ooops, I’m getting preachy….eeeek……

Yes, Wallbeds or Murphy Beds are definitely the best choice for small homes, small rooms, and Studio apartments!   Check us out at The Great American Wallbed Co.

How Much is a Fair and Reasonably Priced Wallbed?

Best PriceIn a world of relativity, uncertainty, and Google-mining, one thing is certain: knowing when, for sure! you found a fair and reasonably priced wall bed/Murphy bed is a daunting task! So let us look at some things that play a role in pricing and see if there is a wallbed priced just for you! By the way, we all want to save money, make a “deal,” and find a “special offer.” It makes us feel good and in control, even if it’s only a dollar. Admit it!

If you found this blog, I KNOW you’ve been mining the vast internet for fair and reasonable wallbed prices. But you have STOP and ask yourself several questions first.
What should your wall bed look like?

  • Like an heirloom furniture? Luxury Lamb
  • A Shaker style? Pinterest
  • Scandinavian Contemporary? Apartment Therapy
  • Should it be made of plywood? Wood Magazine
  • Paint grade? Painted finish, or stained? Wood veneer or laminate?
  • Particle board? Don’t turn up your nose. The industrial grades (NOT MDF) today are super strong, certified Green Products, and preferred by the most reputable furniture manufacturers.  Material Info
  • And what kind of surface will your wall bed have: smooth or grained melamine or super modern glossy? IKEA

Now sit down and-

  • establish a budget: $0 – $1,000,000
  • choose a basic style: Horizontal, Vertical or Library
  • pick your size: Twin, Full or Queen
  • decide which material: Veneer, Laminate or paint/ stain
  • add sales tax (Plug in your address here to determine your tax rate. It is based on where the wallbed is INSTALLED not where it is sold!) Washington State Tax Lookup
  • do you have to add freight?
  • delivery charges?
  • installation charges?

Once you have answers to these questions you are ready to buy that fair and reasonably priced wall bed/Murphy bed!

“But,” you say, “what I want costs this much on this Site A and that much on Site B!” See, I took you on a global trip and showed you what is out there. Remember “think global, shop local”?
