Add Sleeping Space to Vacation Rentals, Easy!

So… you’ve listed your property on VRBO or Airbnb and are preparing for a slew of new guests as the warm weather sets in! But what if you have a small space for your vacation rental and want it to appeal to a wider variety of travelers?

A Murphy bed from Wallbeds n’ More is the perfect way to add additional sleeping capacity to your vacation rental no matter what size it may be. You can easily increase the number of beds in your rental, without sacrificing space, by adding a wall bed. Your listing will be more appealing to a more extensive group of people looking for a place to stay, such as families or groups of friends.

Not only are you adding to the sleeping capacity of your unit, but you are also maximizing floor space when you add a hidden bed (that’s actually comfortable). Especially in one-bedroom or studio sized space including attic rooms, basement rentals, or mother-in-law units, a hidden wall bed can be a fun surprise, delighting your guests while at the same time maximizing space and increasing the number of people who are able to stay in your rental.

Increase Versatility

If you have a VRBO rental unit and you want to increase the sleeping capacity in the living room without opting for a clunky, finger pinching, uncomfortable hide-a-bed, one of our chest wallbed units would be an ideal alternative. Our chest wall beds can sit right in the living room or family room and function as an entertainment center, sofa table, or piece of decorative accent furniture that blends inconspicuously in with the rest of the room decor. When it’s time to go to sleep, the chest transforms from the accent piece to a full size bed and just seconds.

Our chest wall beds come in several different styles, wood types, and colors, and if you can’t choose which finish you prefer, you can always take a look at the different options when you come into our showroom.

Maximizing Space Equals Maximizing Profit

When you are listing your rental unit on Airbnb or VRBO you are required to select the sleeping capacity so that guests can plan accordingly. With an optional Murphy bed that can be pulled down from the wall or out of an unimposing chest in a snap, you will be able to attract larger families or groups while maintaining the ability to host smaller groups as well.

Additionally, because your unit will be more flexible with whom it can accommodate, you are likely to have your unit filled more frequently with more guests, and therefore, make more profit. Your renters will be thrilled with the comfort level of our wall beds. A supportive bed frame with up to an 11 inch thick mattress is much more suitable for a good night’s sleep than a couch pull-out, futon, or air mattress.

At Wallbeds n’ More we can help you determine which mattress is the right choice for your wall bed. We can also suggest different accessories such as drawers, accent lighting, electrical outlets, cupboards, and even a wardrobe… all of which can be very helpful in a small, compact space that you are trying to maximize. Happy renters mean good reviews and maybe even return visits!

We highly recommend browsing our large variety of Murphy beds online and narrowing down several that you think would work best in fitting with your style. Call us to customize and place your order, stop by the store during business hours, or schedule an appointment to browse the showroom with one of our space-saving specialists.

Visit Wallbeds n’ More Rocklin

If you choose to come in to the showroom in person, you will be able to explore not only the different finish options, but the different hardware options as well. By visiting our showroom you will be able to see the myriad of furniture pieces available to make your rental unit unique and a hidden bed that fits perfect for whatever size or style of room you’ll be placing it in.

Additionally, when you come into our physical location, you can test out the mattresses to decide which is the most comfortable for your vacation rental. Since you will likely have many tenants renting the unit that have a variety of mattress prefernces, it would be wise to pick one with a medium firmness level so as not to be too hard or too soft for any one guest.

Make your rental stand out from the crowd with a custom built, locally made Murphy bed to delight your guests! You can stop by during our business hours of Monday through Saturday from 10am-3pm or give us a call at (916) 753-4966 to schedule an appointment with one of our team members. You can see how the beds function for yourself and take a look at the different styles to decide which one meets your needs and the style of your guest home.
