Many people wonder if they have enough space for a Roseville Murphy bed. Almost all rooms are big enough for at least a twin-sized wall bed, but some don’t realize that most rooms are even big enough for a queen-sized wall bed.
One factor that plays into if a room is appropriate for a Murphy bed is if it has enough wall area for a Murphy bed.
For our vertical beds the required wall space is:
- Queen size: 65 1/2″ W x 87 1/2″ H of wall space required
- Full size: 59 1/2″ W x 83″ H of wall space required
- Twin size: 44 1/2″ W x 83″ H of wall space is required
For horizontal/side tilt beds:
- Queen size: 86″ W x 68″ H of wall space required
- Full-size: 80″ W x 62″ H of wall space required
- Twin size: 80″ W x 46″ H of wall space is required
You will also want clearance all around the bed, about 24″ on each side tends to be a good minimum, also if you have a door that opens into the room that might interfere with the bed, and you will likely want about 36″ of space between where the end of the bed comes and the door to accommodate door swing.
Here is a standard rule guide for minimum room sizes:
- Queen sized: 9′ W x 10′ L
- Full sized: 9′ W x 10′ L
- Twin sized: 7′ W x 10′ L
Side tilt beds:
- Queen sized: 9′ W x 9′ L
- Full sized: 9′ W x 8′ L
- Twin sized: 9′ W x 7′ L
Keep in mind these are not foolproof measurements, some rooms this size won’t work for a wall bed, and some smaller rooms can in some cases accommodate a bed, it just depends on the specific layout of the room and how little extra space you’re willing to have around the bed. Other things to keep in mind, is if there are closets in the room, adjoining bathrooms with doors that swing into the room, windows, or other major obstructions on the walls.
