Luxurious guest bed:

NEXTBED is one of the most modern and efficient Murphy bed designs the wall bed business has seen yet. The development of this product was inspired by the growth of the Murphy Wall-bed business in the USA and the industry's need for a better designed bed system. The DIY wall bed assembly and installation is easy enough for experienced D.I.Y.'ers or you can always choose to hire a local tradesperson to complete the job.  

Our customers indicated that there was a need for a simple bed mechanism with a slatted mattress base. Association between the USA, Europe and Asia created a global product that would retain many of the advantages of the old Murphy Bed but offer the user a vastly improved and more comfortable sleep system. Welcome NEXT BED the new global product.

Building into a wardrobe: If you are planning to install the wall bed hidden inside a wardrobe/cabinet, make sure you allow enough space around the wall bed for bedding & also take into account hinges or any other possible obstruction. It is advised that you assemble the wall bed first so you can check all measurements carefully and avoid any mistakes.
