Measuring for your Murphy Bed is "Easy"

Measuring is one of the most important steps when considering purchasing a Murphy Bed. Height, Width, Depth (when closed), and Projection from the wall (when open) will allow you to easily see how your murphy bed (and possibly side cabinets) will fit on on your wall in your room. Please keep in mind that the murphy bed comes in either 6 or 7 pieces (depending on type of murphy bed), which means the dimensions you see below are when the bed is put together and NOT how it is delivered. All of our designs, both vertical and horizontal, are standard sizes, meaning they are built to accommodate all standard sized mattresses (Twin, Full/Double, Queen)(NO KING). These standard sized designs make finding the perfect, but no thicker than 12”, innerspring mattress a breeze. We can accommodate mattresses thicker than 12", but at an additional charge. Contact us if you have a non-standard mattress in mind (i.e. Tempur-Pedic, Latex, Pillow-top, etc.). We can let you know how this will affect the construction of your wall bed.

Our twin designs have ample room for sleeping a single adult or child. Our queen and double designs offer more than enough space to comfortably sleep two adults.

If your room has ample ceiling height and adequate floor space, the vertical design is your best option. With a variety of face designs and stain colors to choose from, your fully functioning, space-saving bed becomes a beautifully hidden secret. Below is a table fully describing the overall dimensions of the different sized beds for our Vertical Beds.
