DIMENSIONS

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 bedwill fit on on the 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 and Queen.) These standard sized designs make finding the perfect, but no thicker than 12”, innerspring mattress a breeze.

MEASURING FOR A VERTICAL MURPHY BED

If your room has ample ceiling height and adequate floor space, the vertical design is your best option. Vertical beds are the most common beds that our customers purchase. They are very similar to a normal bed where one (or two) people can enter the bed from either side.

SIZE                      HEIGHT               WIDTH            DEPTH          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″

Ceiling Height Requirements: Your ceiling height must be at least 2 1/2″ taller than the height of the bed you are trying to install.

*Depth is the dimension from the wall to the Crown Molding in front of the face of the bed, in the closed position.

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

*Width given is from outside of Crown Molding to outside of Crown Molding. If you are trying to fit the bed into a niche, you can subtract 1 1/2″ from the overall width by removing the Crown Molding.

MEASURING FOR A VERTICAL SIDE CABINET

Vertical side cabinets are a great addition to your Vertical murphy bed if you are looking for extra hidden storage or a way to display pictures and decor! Side cabinets come in a variety of options; whether it’s all open shelves, or a cabinet fully enclosed with doors and drawers. In order to account for the total width of a project when purchasing one or two (or more) side cabinets with your murphy bed; just simply add all of the widths together. The height of our side cabinets will be a step below the murphy bed crown molding, and will be smaller in depth than the murphy bed as well. The side cabinet(s) will easily install next to the murphy bed on the right or left side, or even in between two murphy beds! Cabinet doors will swing away from the murphy bed as a standard.

*Depth is the dimension from the wall to the Molding on the face of the cabinet.

*Width given is from outside of Molding to outside of Molding.
