Murphy Wall Beds
| « back to blog
Can a Murphy Bed still be used with vaulted ceilings? The simple answer is... yes. Often Murphy Beds are not only needed in small spaces, but also on walls with height restrictions. A perfect example would be the room above the garage with vaulted ceilings. Uses for these awkward spaces varies from playrooms, to dens, to family rooms, and sometimes suites. They usually serve as the "do everything room" which may incorporate sleeping quarters for guests. Organizing and fully utilizing this space is often difficult due to the low ceiling height.
Side-Tilt Murphy Beds are the perfect solution for low ceilings. They are mounted to the wall in a horizontal position resulting in a lower overall cabinet height and are available in twin, full and queen sizes. Not only do they save space vertically, but they also save floor space when the bed is open. The protrusion of the Murphy Bed into the room measures between 49" and 70" depending on the bed size chosen.
When considering a Side-Tilt Murphy Bed the cabinet measurements can be extrememly important if a proper fit is desired.
The finished outside dimensions of the Side-Tilt Murphy Bed Cabinets are:
Twin / Single 80"W x 47 5/16"H x 15 7/8"D
Full / Double 80"W x 62 5/16"H x 15 7/8"D
Queen 85"W x 68 5/16"H x 15 7/8"D
Not only are the Side-Tilt's functional but they are also decorative. With a little ingenuity and creative carpentry, the bed panel can be manufactured to resemble an attractive side board. Overnight guests may struggle to find their bed due to it's camouflaged finish and will be amazed at it's ease of use.
