4 Ways a Murphy Bed can Help You Start a Hobby
Fresh starts always mean reevaluating the time (or lack of) you leave for new pursuits and finding ways to give yourself the time to try something new. Choosing side projects and self-care activities can be tricky while maintaining a work-life balance, being present for events and other people, and keeping up with daily chores and tasks.
It also doesn’t help when there’s a lack of room to begin a new hobby, whether space for the necessary supplies or simply the area to participate in an activity.
Murphy Beds are the perfect solution if you want to start a new hobby without compromising on space or disorganization. With these beds’ ability to be tucked away, which makes way for activities throughout the day, and their many storage solutions, there are plenty of ways to jump-start a newfound passion, thanks to a Murphy Bed.
Here are four examples of how a Murphy Bed can help.
Let your creative juices flow freely
Although many at-home artists have the luxury of a designated art room to store easels, art supplies, and canvases, not every aspiring DaVinci is fortunate enough to have a spare room. This alone can be a massive factor in people dropping or never pursuing an art hobby, like painting, sketching, or sculpting.
As a multi-functional piece of furniture, Murphy Beds can operate as a sleeping unit and an office area, thanks to the desk attachment that comes with select ones. This presents at-home artists with a space to work without having to worry about not having an entire room dedicated to their hobby.
And while the problem with art supplies is that they tend to be a little messy — both in their usage and sheer quantities of supplies — this can quickly be resolved thanks to the many storage solutions that Murphy Beds provide.
Display your growing book collection in the Murphy Bed’s storage units
A book collection can clutter your living room over time, and bookcases ultimately take up a lot of room. For people wanting to get into reading but fear they lack the necessary space for storing books, the Murphy Bed’s storage units allow you to freely display your tomes or sneakily store them behind doors — depending on how you customize your Murphy Bed.
This is a constructive storage solution for university students looking to satisfy their love of reading for fun with their obligatory course readings (something rental owners can advertise for students).
DIY your unique clothes
Though some people may not see fashion as a hobby, a lot of planning and DIY-ing goes into putting together a good look and collecting staple pieces. And if you’re looking to get into fashion, a great tip is to create your signature clothing. Not only does this give your clothing and accessories their unique pizazz, but it also gives you the satisfaction of knowing you personalized your outfit.
The desk attachment will be your best friend and designer ally in this process, and there are many ways to use it:
- Place a sewing machine on the table and see your clothes come to life
- Lay out all your needlework supplies while you use an embroidery hoop
- Put a plastic cloth or newspapers on the table and tie-dye different clothing
- Bedazzle a tote bag while putting your supplies in front of you
Once your new wardrobe is created, you can simply store them on your Murphy Bed’s shelves — and after that, you can go to bed in style.
Find peace in having room to workout
Hobbies are a way to help you decompress after a day (or week, or month) of non-stop stress, and one of the most common ways people de-stress is by sweating out their worries.
Whether you need room to do some yoga or follow a video workout routine, your Murphy Bed can turn your sleeping area into a functional exercise space, sparing you from going out to a gym or cram workout equipment in your living room.
All you must do is push your Murphy Bed into place, and you now have the space to work out in whichever way you want.
