1. Economize on vertical space with a landscape murphy bed

The traditional image of a Murphy bed is a tall structure that unfolds so that the head faces the wall. This might not work for apartments that don't have a ton of vertical space or a converted loft.

This landscape style of Murphy bed can fit into almost any apartment.
