Home Office Built-ins with Murphy Bed in Riverside
Clients in the Riverside neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida contracted Borders Woodworks to design, build, and install a pair of custom built-ins to furnish their home office. And they wanted one of the built-ins to include a Murphy bed.
A Murphy bed is a bed that folds up into a wall, a closet, or in this case, a built-in bookshelf unit. The design concept has been popular for saving space since early in the 20th century. A Murphy bed provides a comfortable bed when folded out. When folded up, a Murphy bed allows the same floor space to be easily used for other purposes.
Both of these custom home office built-ins are constructed of solid hardwood, finished with detail trim, painted white, and finished with contrasting black hardware.
The primary home office built-in features include:
- corkboard backs in the desk hutches
- LED lighting over the workspaces
- keyboard pullouts at the knee spaces
And both custom built-ins provide plenty of storage space in shelves and cabinets, and our clients were very happy with the completed pieces.
