Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Murphy Beds
Is a wallbed, sleep and store bed or hideaway bed the same as a Murphy Bed?
Although different companies make different styles of Murphy beds, the general concept is the same but the actual mechanisms might differ in appearance and quality. The term “Murphy Bed” is not a direct brand name like Coca-Cola; it’s just the style of bed that was invented by a person named Murphy many years ago.
Are Murphy Beds comfortable?
Absolutely! Unlike sofa beds and futons, Murphy Beds do not require any folding mattresses, so you are sleeping on a quality mattress without the bars and lumps associated with sofa beds and futons.
Are Murphy beds easy to raise and lower?
Yes they are! Our spring-loaded mechanisms ensure effortless opening and closing. Our mechanisms are counter balanced to prevent your bed from unexpectedly falling. You can raise or lower your Murphy bed with just one finger.
Do I need a box spring?
Definitely not! For years doctors have recommended a flat platform for sleeping support. Many manufacturers have discontinued box spring products as they are redundant.
Can I close my Murphy Bed with all the bedding and pillows in place?
No problem! We provide a Velcro strap system to hold your bedding and mattress in place when your Murphy Bed is in the vertical position. You can open your Murphy Bed and use it immediately.
