Custom built Murphy Wall Beds
Our Murphy Wall beds can be divided into 3 categories:
Do it yourself
Do you have some
woodworking skills and want to save some money. Show them off and
build your own.
3 Options to choose
from to fit your skill level.
Horizontal Murphy bed
These are examples of murphy beds
that we turned sideways. Some have us build the horizontal version
because of room constraints (walls being too short), but some just like the
look. Even if you don't see a horizontal version of your favorite
vertical style doesn't mean we can't do it. Let us know what version
you want to see in a horizontal and we'll get it quoted for you (see
form) Go to Horizontal page

Murphy Bed Mattresses NEW!
though our murphy beds don't require any "special" mattress, our customers have
requested that we price them on our website. These are mattresses that
we've sold in our showroom for years, so they've been tried and tested in our murphy beds.

Can you do custom sizes?
Yes we can. Supply us with your measurements and we will design one to fit
your space. We even will work with your contractor if you want more of a
built in look.
I've seen some that use particle
board with a fake wood grain over it. Do you use that? No, we
don't even offer that as an option. That is melamine and is very heavy.
In face we don't use anything with particle board.
What if I want more of a built in
look? There are things we can do to make that happen. First we
build the bookcases with a scribe line. Without going into too much detail
it helps the piece fit in the corner better. We then supply some trim
pieces to help finish it out. If you need some examples let me know.
I see oak and maple a lot on your
site. Do you offer any other type of wood? Yes, everything is totally
custom and we can use whatever wood that is available. We've used
Mahogany, Walnut, Cherry, Tamo Ash, Lacewood, Figured Maple.
What if I don't know how to choose
a color? We have a color page that has the common colors from Minwax on
them. This may give you a starting poing. We can always mail out a
real sample (colors can vary from monitor to monitor). Also we can match
your existing furnituer.
If you have a shelf, drawer or anything you can send to use, we will match it.
We are so confident that our product will last that we will
replace any part that fails due to craftsmanship for a period of 10 years.
We use only the highest quality lumber and building techniques.
Our mechanism also is guaranteed for 10 years. If you ever have a mechanism
problem, just give us a call and we will send out any new part you need. After
the warranty period expires, only minimal charges apply.
The bed has been tested for 10,000 revolutions without wear or tear
(that's 27 years of everyday use). The legs have been tested to
6000 psi with a factor of 2 (two legs). There are very few moving parts
on our Murphy bed. We have never had to replace any part due to wear,
break-down or craftsmanship.
As you've seen by shopping our competitors, our prices are well below even the
closest one. Our original strategy was to use the advertising money originally
budgeted for the Murphy bed start up period and pass that on to the customer.
That has worked. Our web site is moving up in the rankings and "word of
mouth" is being spread. We have customers buying their second bed, and
customers prompting their neighbors to buy. For that, we thank you!
