Genuine Murphy Hardware
Only the genuine Murphy Bed is built using genuine Murphy Bed hardware. The patented Murphy Bed™ mechanism is a counter-balanced spring-loaded system proven over many years to be the most reliable mechanism on the market. Many of our beds have useful features such as drawers, shelves and even desks that can be accessed whether the bed is in use or not. When space is a premium, consider a Murphy bed to give you that much needed sleep and storage space without compromising your available square footage.
Standard Wall Bed
The more standard configuration, this option feels more like a traditional bed. This vertical system is our most popular since it allows the user to have access to both sides of the unit.
- Usable storage is included to make the most of the space.
- Sturdy mechanisms are designed for years of regular use.
- A smooth opening and closing action make it easy to operate.
- Transform any space into a guest room instantly or maximize daytime space in a bedroom.
Side-Tilt/Horizontal Wall Bed
Ideal for use in a playroom or office, this configuration perfectly utilizes available wall space. An ideal solution when square footage is minimal, this wall bed has less of a footprint into the room when opened.
- The altered footprint of a side-tilt wall bed makes it ideal for a tight space or small room.
- Murphy bunk beds are mounted to a metal frame that is mounted to the wall.
How to Measure for a Murphy Bed?
We will come in measure and customize it for you.
When measuring a room for a Murphy bed, we consider the height, width, and depth of the bed when it is in the closed position. We also look at the projection of the bed when it is open.
Width is from the outside edge on one side of the molding to the outside edge of the other side of the molding. If you are trying to fit your bed into a tight space, contact us for some helpful pointers.
Depth is the dimension from the wall to the face of the bed in its closed position.
Projection is the dimension from the wall to the outside of the bed frame in its open position.
Murphy Bed Frequently Asked Questions
How to Choose a Mattress for Your Murphy Bed?
Most Murphy beds are designed for mattresses that measure 9 inches thick.
Since most mattresses are 9 in. thick on average, it is not difficult to find one that will fit comfortably inside your wall bed. Most mattress types, including hybrid, and innerspring mattresses, can be paired with a Murphy bed. However, slumping can be an issue when using a wall bed. Since the mattress must sit in an upright position for long periods of time, the pressure can cause bunching on either end of the mattress.
Are Murphy beds comfortable to sleep on?
Murphy beds are as comfortable as any other type of bed.
Once you have it installed and pulled down most Murphy beds can be equipped with the same mattresses as a regular bed and feel like a regular bed. Make sure that the depth of the mattress is 9 in. or less, which is common for North American standard sizes.
Where can I put a Murphy bed?
There are several ways to save space in a home. One way to combine a spare bedroom with an office or other room in the home is to add a Murphy bed.
Think about the layout of the room and the wall the bed will be on. If the room is long and narrow and you want the bed on the narrow side, consider a vertical bed if the room has a relatively high ceiling. If the bed is going on the long side of the room or the ceilings are low, a horizontal bed may work better. Measure the room carefully to make sure there is enough space for the bed when it is both folded up and folded down.
Does a Murphy bed have a box spring?
Murphy beds do not have box springs. Instead, the mattress attaches to the bed frame with a retention system.
An elastic strap is used to hold the mattress in place when it is in the upright position. Slumping can be mitigated by keeping the mattress strap tight, which will help the mattress stay straight when it is stored upright.
How much weight can a Murphy bed hold?
A Murphy bed usually holds 250 to 1000 lbs, but some can hold up to 2500 lbs.
Ensure that you do not exceed your Murphy bed weight capacity, or else you could strain the lift mechanism or pull the bed out of the wall.
Can I use a latex mattress on the Murphy bed?
No, latex mattresses should not be used on Murphy beds.
Unlike those with innersprings or memory foam, latex mattresses cannot stand on-end for long periods of time which will result in an inability to operate the bed.
Can I use an air mattress on the Murphy bed?
No, you cannot use a blow-up air mattress with Murphy beds.
They are not heavy enough to counterbalance the piston lift system. Select comfort mattresses are also not recommended due to their lack of weight.
Can a small child pull down the Murphy bed?
A child less than 4 ft. tall will not be able to open the bed.
The decorative handles at the top of the bed are used to leverage the bed open and pull the bed down. A child is not tall enough to reach these handles.
Why don’t Murphy beds come with locks?
A lock is not necessary.
The steel bed spring mechanism holds the bed tight to the wall when it is closed.
What is the warranty on a Murphy bed?
We have a lifetime warranty.
Our products provide a full replacement warranty on hardware found to be defective because of issues relating to workmanship during manufacturing.
Do Murphy beds attach to the floor or the wall?
Either. The most common Murphy bed options are wall-mounted.
Floor mounting is required by traditional spring mechanism systems, which makes it stable but usually causes permanent damage to the floor.
Most Murphy beds on the market require it to be secured to a wall. Wall-mounted units attach to studs and can generally be moved without causing much damage. Traditional wall-mounted Murphy beds rely on air piston lifting mechanisms to raise the bed platform up and down.
What is the difference between a side-tilt/horizontal or vertical Murphy bed?
Horizontal beds are sideways and vertical beds go upright.
The horizontal Murphy bed mounts sideways and requires about 68 inches for a Queen size of floor to ceiling clearance. A horizontal Murphy bed is great for any spaces that have regular ceiling heights or if you have a low ceiling clearance between 62-68 inches from the floor to the ceiling.
The vertical Murphy bed mounts upright and requires about 88 inches for a
Queen size of floor to ceiling clearance. A vertical Murphy bed is great for any spaces that have regular ceiling heights of 83-88 inches depending on the size of your wall from the floor to the ceiling.
