Murphy Beds of Central Kentucky’s Birthday
We cannot believe we are two years old. Now that we have been in business two years, I am reflecting on our journey so far. Upon starting Murphy Beds of Central Kentucky, LLC, we were excited to do something new. Also a little nervous about going out on our own again. We worked with new vendors, found customers and had to figure out a direction for the business.
Our initial vendors were fantastic. We are still working with most of them. Even though we are a small family run operation and are not a huge part of the vendor’s businesses, all have been very willing to accommodate and help us become established. We tried all kinds of print and media advertising. Thanks to all of you who like us on Facebook and use our website. This and word of mouth have been our best advertising.
Two Years of Custom Designs
Along the way, many of our customers have become friends. We met hundreds of folks at the yearly home and garden shows. We learned everyone has different needs and expectations for a Murphy bed system. For this reason, we focus on customized furniture. Some of our interesting original Murphy bed designs include a couch bed, a desk bed, and horizontal beds. We expanded our bed frame options to include the original EZ-rest, light weight Next bed and panel bed frames. The panel door bed is now our most popular option.
With customer ideas, we created some great accessory furniture styles. We designed closets, desks, file systems, bookcases, cabinets, entertainment centers, and tables. It’s been fun creating unique furniture for condominiums, cabins, and houses of all sizes. We have conquered design challenges like commissioning a custom heating duct, incorporating a decorative vent. We have accommodated windows, thermostats, and rooms out of square. Each time, our one of a kind Murphy beds and accessories were installed professionally for a perfect experience from start to finish.
The Murphy Beds of Central Kentucky Difference
We know that you can buy off-the-shelf Murphy bed furniture from the internet. But quality is not assured, wood and finish choices are limited, and you do the installation. Your space and needs are unique. We are proud our beds are individually crafted by an Amish cabinet maker. He works closely with us on every design to assure the highest quality workmanship for form and function. We discuss special design considerations with the cabinet maker and visit the shop on a regular basis.
Normally for each project, we design the cabinet and draw it to scale to make sure everything will fit together properly. Often we send a drawing to the customer to confirm the plan. The process also involves a call to the Amish cabinet maker to discuss any unique items before the order is placed. Each custom order usually takes eight weeks to build. Once delivered to us, we inspect the furniture then schedule installation at a time convenient to the customer. Upon leaving a customer’s home the Murphy bed furniture is ready to use.
Looking Forward to a Third Year
This has been a great couple of years. We look forward to growing our business as we work with new customers. Please give us an opportunity to design a Murphy bed and accessory furniture for you.
