Murphy Bed Dimensions: Twin, Full & Queen Sized Wall Beds

Measuring is one of the most important steps to take once you’ve decided to shop for Murphy beds. Dimensions, including the height, width, depth (when closed) and projection from the wall (when open), will allow you to easily see how your Murphy bed and side cabinets, if you choose them, will fit on a wall in your space.

Along with these measurements, you will need to consider that your Murphy bed frame may come in either six or seven pieces depending on the type of bed you choose. The Murphy bed dimensions you see below represent the size of the constructed bed, not its deconstructed measurements when delivered.

All of our vertical and horizontal Murphy bed sizes are designed to accommodate standard mattress widths: twin, full/double and queen (NO KING SIZE). As long as the innerspring mattress you choose is no thicker than 12”, you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect fit for your Murphy bed frame.

NOTE: We can accommodate mattresses thicker than 12” at an additional charge. Contact us if you have a non-standard mattress you’d like to use in your Murphy bed frame, such as a Tempur-Pedic, Latex, Pillow-top or other style. We’ll let you know how the construction of your wall bed will be affected and help you find the ideal custom solution.

Taking Side Cabinet & Murphy Bed Measurements

Whether you’re looking for a twin, full/double or queen size Murphy bed, The Bedder Way Co. has vertical and horizontal designs to fit your needs — and taking measurements to find your perfect fit is a breeze!

As a general consideration, our twin designs have ample sleeping room for a single adult or child. Our queen and full size Murphy bed designs can comfortably sleep two adults. Below, we’ll cover how to take measurements for vertical and horizontal murphy beds, as well as how to account for side cabinets you may want to add to your set.

Vertical Murphy Bed Dimensions

If your room has ample ceiling height and adequate floor space, a vertical bed design is your best option. Vertical Murphy beds are our most commonly purchased style since they are similar to a normal bed where people can get onto the mattress from either side. And with a variety of face panel designs and stain colors to choose from, your fully functioning, space-saving bed becomes a beautifully hidden secret. Find the overall bed size dimensions of our different frame styles in the table below.

Vertical Bed Dimensions

SIZEHEIGHTWIDTHDEPTH*PROJECTION**
Twin 82 3/4 ” 45 1/2 ” 18 3/4” * 81 7/8 ”
XL Twin 87 3/4 ” 45 1/2 ” 18 3/4” * 86 7/8 ”
Full / Double 82 3/4 ” 60 1/2 ” 18 3/4 ” * 81 7/8 ”
Queen 87 3/4 ” 66 1/2 ” 18 3/4” * 86 7/8 ”

NOTE: Your ceiling height must be at least 2 1/2” taller than the height of the bed you’re trying to install.

* Width given is from the outside of crown molding on one end to outside of crown molding on the other. If you are trying to fit the bed into a smaller space, you can save 1 ½” by removing the crown molding. Please contact us for more detailed information.

** Depth is the dimension from the wall to the crown on the front face of the bed while in the closed position.

- If you order a larger crown, the depth of your bed will be inches (to accommodate side cabinets with a larger crown).

*** Projection is the dimension from the wall to the outside of the bed frame in the open position.

Vertical Side Cabinet Dimensions

Side cabinets are a great addition to your vertical murphy bed if you’re looking for extra hidden storage and decorative flair. There’s a variety of options to choose from in side cabinet layout: all open shelves, doors, drawers or a mix of each. You can also choose from three different widths: 18 inches, 24 inches or 30 inches. Custom widths are available as well; you just need to place your order over the phone.

To account for the total width of a project when purchasing side cabinets for your Murphy bed, simply add the widths of each side cabinet and the crown molding of the Murphy bed together. The side cabinets will easily install next to the Murphy bed frame on either side — even between two Murphy beds or other cabinets. Cabinet doors swing away from the Murphy bed. Side cabinets can also be ordered after receiving your Murphy bed if you decide that having them would benefit the space.

Horizontal Murphy Bed Dimensions

If your room has lower ceilings that won’t accommodate a vertical Murphy bed’s dimensions, our horizontal design may be the best solution for you. It has all the comfort and convenience of our vertical design in a shorter package. The horizontal frame also has the functionality of being an eye level shelf where pictures, artwork and other decorations can be displayed. Check out the dimensions for our different horizontal Murphy beds in the table below.

** 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.

HORIZONTAL SIDE CABINET DIMENSIONS

If you want to add more storage and style to your horizontal Murphy bed frame, side cabinets are perfect for you. Like our vertical cabinets, you can choose to have all open shelves, doors and drawers or a couple of each, and you can pick from 18 inch, 24 inch and 30 inch widths (along with custom widths, which must be ordered by phone).

To account for the total width of a project with side cabinets, simply add together the widths of the side cabinets and the Murphy bed frame. Side cabinets install easily on either side of the horizontal Murphy bed, with doors that swing away from the bed frame. They can also be ordered after the initial Murphy bed order if you decide they are necessary later.
