• What is the difference between a Murphy Bed and a Wall Bed?
    The incorporation of hardware (spring assist tilt mechanism, steel frame foundation, tilt away legs + mattress retainer cross bar) manufactured by the Murphy Hardware Company of Canada allows the wall bed to be legitimately called a Murphy Bed or Murphy Wall Bed. The Murphy Hardware Company of Canada has been making their wall bed hardware since 1975 and currently manufacturing within an ISO certified facility giving the end consumer peace of mind with product origin along in addition to a 25-year parts warranty.
  • What sizes are available for my Murphy Bed and what are the dimensions?
    Our Murphy Wall Beds are all available in standard Single, Double, Queen and King sizes as well as in Vertical Tilt and Side Tilt orientations.  Click to get the dimensions based on orientation.
  • What kind of mattress do I use with my Murphy Bed?
    One of the wonderful things about Murphy beds is that there no special mattresses are required. We recommended either a spring coil or high-density foam mattress – full / solid memory foam mattresses are not recommended. The regular length leg accommodates up to 10" thickness while the 2-inch extended leg option accommodates up to 12" overall thickness. Click to read more on what to consider before purchasing your mattress for your murphy bed.
  • How much do custom Murphy Beds cost in Toronto and the GTA? 
    The price of a made-to-order Murphy Bed is influenced by different factors, including the size and orientation of the bed, the type of material used for your wall bed, and the door style you choose (e.g. Shaker Style, Contemporary or Raised Panel Door Style). You can also add side cabinets, crown finish top plates, reading lights and desks. A common price range for a ready-to-assemble Queen-size Vertical tilt version Murphy Bed is typically somewhere between $1,900 - $2,100.

  • Is assembly and installation included when I order my Murphy Bed?
    All of our Murphy Beds and side cabinets are made "ready to assemble" and self assembly is supported by online YouTube videos from Murphy Hardware Company in conjunction with written instructions. If your time is limited or furniture assembly is just not for you, delivery and assembly services throughout much of southern Ontario is available as an option from experienced independent trades people. Pricing for Murphy Bed and related cabinetry delivery and assembly services is available upon request.
  • What are the pros and cons of side tilt compared to vertical tilt?
    Vertical tilt Murphy Beds are by far the most popular choice because of the ease of access into and out of on both sides of the bed. Side tilt Murphy Beds are most popular where there are low ceiling heights and/or rooms that are not deep enough to allow a bed to open with the mattress length but the possible drawback is anyone sleeping close to the wall will not have access into the bed from “their side”.
  • How long do Murphy Beds last?
    A Murphy Bed is made up of the wood cabinetry and the hardware components that includes the bed frame foundation, legs, spring and the counter-balanced tilt mechanism. Under normal day-to-day usage, one should reasonably expect 15 or 20 years of service from your Murphy Bed. You’ll likely have grown tired of the door style and/or colour long before the bed itself is worn out!
  • Is there a warranty on the Murphy Wall Bed by Urban Cabinetry?
    There is a 25-year parts warranty for the Murphy Bed hardware components (legs, frames, springs, tilt mechanism) underwritten by the Murphy Hardware Company of Canada and subject to their determination as to cause of product failure. The actual bed cabinet and side cabinet components, most notably the doors but also other elements which compose the bed and side cabinet, have a 5-year parts warranty underwritten by Urban Cabinetry against discolouration, delamination and cracking subject to their determination as to cause of the product failure. (Abusive treatment or misuse of the product will not qualify for either the Murphy Hardware Company of Canada parts warranty or the Urban Cabinetry warranty.)
  • What type of material do you use for your custom Murphy Beds?
    At Urban Cabinetry, we use Thermally Fused Laminates (TFL) materials in the production of our Murphy Beds and side cabinets. TFL, fabricated in Canadian mills by our suppliers, is industry certified (Forest Stewardship Council, Controlled Wood Standard and/or Chain of Custody Standard) to contain post consumer wood product ranging between 75% - 100% of high-quality wood chips, wood shavings and sawdust, therefore ensuring the furniture products we produce will always contain among the highest percentage of recovered and recycled wood fibres. As well, all TFL products produced sold within Canada must be compliant with the limit (0.09 ppm) for EPA TSCA Title VI formaldehyde emissions.
  • How do I clean and maintain the material used in your Murphy Bed?
    Thermally fused laminates (TFL) are generally durable and low maintenance surfaces. The use of soft natural cotton or synthetic cloth with soapy water and/or non-abrasive household cleaner (i.e. common window cleaner) are best suited to cleaning of these materials. The use of abrasives such as scouring pads or gritty cleansers should be avoided as these may permanently dull and/or scratch surfaces (note: excessive force or scrubbing may also damage surfaces so take care when cleaning more stubborn soils)
  • Can I get a Murphy Bed in solid wood?
    While solid wood may have the perception of being more durable, it is not really the best material for Murphy Beds. Natural solid wood tends to expand and contract due to changing humidity levels in the atmosphere and with many screws required to secure the steel frame foundation hardware to the door panels, these same panels may split or crack because the screws holding the frame will not allow sufficient expansion or contraction of solid wood. At Urban Cabinetry, we use Engineered furniture grade materials for our Murphy Beds which is a more suitable material as expansion and contraction is minimal particularly when compared to solid wood.
  • How much time does it take to manufacture a custom Murphy Bed?
    While in the current climate of supply chain delays, typical manufacturing time for our made-to-order custom wall beds frequently depends upon the door style you choose. Contemporary styles are quickest, generally taking between 3-5 weeks to manufacture; Raised Panel doors take 6-8 weeks while Shaker style Murphy Beds currently has a wait period of 10 -14 weeks.
  • If I move, can I take my wall bed with me?
    Yes - Just like a big screen TV, you need only to detach your bed from the wall after which it may be disassembled and prepared for a move.
  • How can I ensure my wall bed is a verified Murphy Wall Bed?
    When looking to buy a Murphy Bed remember to ask for proof from the company you're thinking of buying from or you may also contact Murphy Hardware of Canada (1.800.667.6336 or at info@murphybeds.com) and ask them to verify that the dealer you're considering purchasing from is an authorized Murphy Bed Hardware dealer.
