How Murphy Beds, Cabinet Beds, and Sleeper Sofas can save you lots of money.
Alright, lets talk about money today. You work hard everyday to earn it. Money takes a long time to earn. In 2019, the median household cost per square foot is $123. However, that doesn't include some of the more expensive areas that some of our customers live in. That means that the median 12'x12' bedroom or office size costs a whopping $17,712! But we all know that sometimes the cost/square foot can go up to $300 or $400 per square foot for custom homes of more expensive locations like Washington, New York, California, etc. That means triple the price! $50,000 for a bedroom or office space to accommodate more in home visits or converting a guest bedroom to an office. We are all spending more and more time at home with COVID-19. Why not maximize these space, and save a lot more money by buying and installing a murphy bed rather than building a house with more expensive square footage, building an addition or bonus room, or not fully utilizing the space you currently have?!
Back to the numbers...
Scenario 1: $123/Square Foot
Cost of building bedroom or office space: $17,712
Scenario 2: $300/Square Foot
Cost of building a bedroom or office space: $43,200
While there are certainly reasons for building an extra bedroom, bonus room, office space, and even breaking down some walls to build an addition, its hard to argue against buying a sleeper sofa, murphy bed or cabinet bed instead and pocketing the money to spend on a mid-life crisis! :P
