Wall Bed Measurements – Will It Fit?
Most people have never bought a wall bed at any time in their life and more than likely this is you. If you’re going through the lockdown and looking for more room at home then a wall bed in a home office, exercise area or even in your meditation room could be the answer.
Let us begin with measuring the area that you have for a wall bed and making sure you have allowed for everything.
Measurement #1- The Height
Height maybe important if you have ceiling fans to dodge. You don’t want to touch the blades as you pull down the bed ready to used. This also goes for lighting that might be hanging down. Safety first eh?

If height is an issue don’t forget about a horizontal Murphy bed. This makes it easy to use the top of the bed as a shelf or for storage. Please note there is no king size available for a horizontal bed.

Measurement #2 – The Width
It’s a good idea to allow for the width of your bed so it’s easy to make or tuck in the kids goodnight.

Measurement #3 – The Length – How far will the bed stick out?
When a wall bed is down and ready to be used and slept in you will need to allow for the protrusion of the bed. That is from the bed head or wall bed cabinet to the end of the bed where your feet will be.

A good idea is to use masking tape to map the outline of the bed so wardrobe doors and bedroom doors don’t get in the way. A little bit of preplanning will certainly stop any annoying mistakes after installation.
Whether it’s a vertical or horizontal bed the cabinetry containing the bed when it’s hidden away protrudes from the wall at 410mm – about the size of a standard cupboard.
