How Much Space Does a Murphy Wallbed Take Up?
The fantastic thing about Murphy Wallbeds is that they have such a small footprint while folded away. That is their single greatest benefit in saving space, while still being a queen-sized bed for guests to sleep in (or twin). They can even be the main bed for your home as well, enabling kids to have a playroom in addition to an ‘adult’ bed.
The main factor that plays into whether a Murphy Wallbed is for you is the wall space available. This will help you decide if you want the most popular, Queen-sized vertical murphy bed, if you need a horizontal murphy bed, or if you need a smaller sized wallbed, such as a twin murphy bed.
Vertical Murphy Bed Sizing
We carry several lines and styles of wallbeds so exact measurements vary between each bed, but an example of vertical sizing from our Barrington Murphy Wallbed would be:
44″W x 85″H x 17.25″D / 81″D (Open)
Twin Extra Long:
44″W x 90″H x 17.25″D / 86″D (Open)

84″W x 73″H x 44″D / 64″D (Open)
Full w/ Hutch:

Other space to take into account is how much room you have to walk around the bed when it is lowered, plus where does the door swing into the room and will the bed interfere with that.
