Top Tips for Smooth Installation of Murphy Wall-Beds

Are you ready to transform your space with a Murphy Wall-Bed? Installing a Murphy Wall-Bed can be rewarding whether you’re a DIY enthusiast or a novice in home improvement projects. But before you dive into the assembly process, it’s crucial to understand the ins and outs of installation. To ensure a hassle-free experience, we’ve compiled a comprehensive guide based on essential tips from our installation videos. Let’s get started!  

Preparation is Key: Before assembling your Murphy Wall-Bed, familiarize yourself with the instruction manual and watch our installation videos. These resources provide valuable insights into the assembly process and safety precautions.

Safety First: Always prioritize safety during installation. Many stages of the assembly process require two people for safe handling. Additionally, ensure that the cabinet is securely attached to structural members, not just the wall finish, to prevent accidents.

Gather Your Tools: The correct tools are essential for a seamless installation. From a rubber mallet for hammering in fittings to a power drill for connecting components, ensure you have all the tools listed in our video.

Identify Components: Familiarize yourself with the various components of the unassembled bed, including the cabinet, frame, and mechanism. This will streamline the assembly process and prevent confusion.

Follow Step-by-Step Instructions: Follow the step-by-step instructions in our videos to take a systematic approach to assembly. Each step is crucial for a sturdy and functional Murphy Wall-Bed, from building the bed cabinet to installing the front kick.

Pay Attention to Detail: Precision is key when assembling your Murphy Wall-Bed. Take accurate measurements, ensure components are correctly aligned, and double-check your work at each stage to avoid costly mistakes.

Consider Flooring: Depending on your flooring type, adjust the installation of the front kick accordingly. For hard surfaces like hardwood flooring, ensure the kick is flush with the bottom of the side panels. On carpeted floors, raise the kick to sit on top of the carpet within a quarter-inch of the floor.

Use Additional Resources: Our online support resources, including installation videos and up-to-date tips on our website, Facebook, and YouTube channels, can provide valuable guidance and troubleshooting tips throughout the installation process.

Stay Positive: While installing a Murphy Wall-Bed may seem daunting initially, remember that you can complete the project with careful planning and attention to detail. Stay patient, take breaks when needed, and don’t hesitate to ask for assistance if you encounter challenges.

Enjoy the Fruits of Your Labor: Once your Murphy Wall-Bed is installed, take a moment to admire your handiwork. Whether creating extra space in a small room or adding versatility to a guest bedroom, your new Murphy Wall-Bed will surely enhance your living space.
