When you purchase an Easy DIY Murphy Bed, you will need to follow our instructions to build a professional grade, functional Murphy bed.
Before you purchase a hardware kit, you must choose the size of the build that you are going to build.
We offer Murphy bed hardware for 3 common size: Twin/Single, Double/ Full and Queen size.
Murphy wall beds are very heavy when you build it, because there are a few heavy wooden parts.
By attaching the hardware according to our instruction that come with an Easy DIY Murphy Bed kit, the pistons will counter balance the weight of the bed frame and the mattress, so it will become easy to open and close your wall bed.
That is why it is important to keep the mattress weight within a certain range to avoid issues when you complete your bed. A mattress over the specified weight would make the bed frame over heavy for the rated pistons and therefore the bed frame would be heavier to lift off the floor.
Murphy beds come in two styles, you can build them vertically or horizontally.
The most popular Murphy beds are the vertical Murphy bed, but sometimes when there are height issues, it would be the best to build your bed horizontally. If you want to put a TV, or build a book case on top of your Murphy bed horizontal Murphy beds will be the best option.
The finished dimensions of each size Murphy bed are available on our website, so you can refer to them before you purchase a Murphy bed hardware kit.
It is important to measure your space to make sure that you can fit the size of Murphy bed you are planning to purchase. Also, you will need to check for the ceiling fan or the light fixtures in the room.
If you have a low ceiling for example in basements horizontal Murphy beds are more suitable.
