Some Common Murphy Bed FAQ's

What Is The Difference Between A Murphy Bed And A Wall Bed?

We are frequently asked by our customers what the difference is between a Murphy Bed, or Murphy Wall Bed, and a simple wall bed. While it is true that every Murphy Bed is a also a wall bed it is not true that every wall bed is a Murphy Bed - Sounds confusing? Actually the distinction is quite straight forward: Within Canada it is fact that the incorporation of wall bed hardware manufactured by the Murphy Hardware Company of Canada which legitimately allows a wall bed to now be referred to as a Murphy Bed or Murphy Wall Bed.

But the difference does not stop there - Murphy Hardware of Canada produces wall bed hardware within ISO certified manufacturing facility and utilizes processes which can be an important point for the end consumer in that there is peace of mind with the knowledge that the individual components of the hardware used in their bed cabinet is produced under exacting conditions and has been making this wall bed hardware since 1975 and offers one of the best warranties in the industry.      

What Kind Of Mattress Do I Use With My Murphy Bed?

You may find yourself wondering what mattress to use with your Murphy Bed. Is a custom mattress necessary? Rest assured one of the great things about Murphy Beds is that it uses a regular spring filled or high density foam (not memory foam - more on this point below) mattress exactly like the ones used on a normal flat bed. With all of our Murphy Beds we recommend using a spring coil or high density foam mattress because they allow the mechanism to balance properly.

While Murphy Beds use regular mattresses that fit on the bed platform, there are a few basic points to consider before you purchase.
When using the Regular legs, that come standard with all of our Murphy Bed kits, the maximum recommended thickness of the mattress is 10”. When you upgrade to the Extended legs the maximum thickness is 12”.
A memory foam mattress is generally not recommended for Murphy Beds or any wall bed. Foam mattresses can be very heavy, and the weight of the mattress may prohibit the mechanism from balancing properly. In addition, there is little structure within the mattress itself; the lack of support inside the mattress may result in the mattress slouching or buckling when stored in the upright position.

Do not be fooled by companies trying to sell you a mattress “specially” designed for a Murphy Bed. Any spring coil mattress will work taking into consideration a maximum 10” thickness using our Regular leg system and a maximum 12” thickness when using our extended leg system


Whether you choose an in stock model or something made to order, all of our Murphy Beds are fabricated with a choice of beautiful clear finish wood veneers, stain grade real wood veneers, tough and economical melamine, paint grade MDF or paint grade plywood and we only use genuine brand name Murphy Bed Hardware - When looking to buy a Murphy Bed remember to ask for proof from where ever you're thinking of buying or better yet, contact Murphy Hardware of Canada (1.800.667.6336 or at info@murphybeds.com) and ask them to verify if the dealer you're thinking of buying from is an authorized Murphy Bed Hardware dealer.
