About Murphy Beds
& Storage Solutions

The History Of Murphy Beds

Murphy Beds were first patented in 1900 by William L. Murphy while living in a boarding house that did not allow guests of the opposite sex to visit in a room with a bed. He wanted to entertain friends in his room, so Mr. Murphy found a way to “hide” the bed. His space-saving idea caught on, and the "Murphy Bed" became quite popular today. Murphy beds are more than just beds. They offer space-saving ideas and allow multi-purpose use for different rooms in your home.

Murphy beds, also known as wall beds, hide-a-beds, or pull-down beds, can be folded up and stored vertically against a wall or inside a cabinet when not in use, allowing for more space in a room. William Murphy invented them in the early 20th century and have since become a popular space-saving solution for small apartments, guest rooms, and home offices.

The Story of Small Businesses

The unfortunate truth of owning and running a business. 

Running a business is really hard. 


What they don’t tell you is that it can cause severe stress and anxiety, and drains you mentally to the point of depression in even the most laid-back people.


People will talk about you, compare you to others, use you, they will view you as a service and not a person anymore.


Friends and family will expect discounts and people will value you and your hard work less than a big chain store or company.


You have to worry about if you forget to email/message someone back, are they going to think it was on purpose? Did you disappoint them? Will they hold that against you? When in reality you just can’t get to everyone’s messages and emails.


Starting up and running a successful business puts incredible strain on personal lives and relationships, many of which fail because there is just often no work-life balance.


You need to be the director, the worker, the admin, the marketing team, the accountant, the cleaner..... All whilst being a parent, a husband or a wife, family support, friend...


There’s a reason you don’t see many people succeed in small businesses after 5-10 years.  If they are successful they are overwhelmed.  


It takes a toll. It’s freaking exhausting. Especially the past couple of years when so much has been out of our control.


Here’s a small reminder that we are just normal people with hectic lives. 


Be kind, be patient, support small businesses…….and hopefully more of us will stick around!


And know that 2022 prices are not 2023 prices. 


I copied this from another small business owner that I support!
