What Is a Double Murphy Bed?

What is a double Murphy bed and does a Lori Wall Bed work with a double mattress? Find the answers you're looking for in this post!

 

There are many choices available for those in the market for a Murphy bed. Modern wall beds come in multiple sizes (including a double bed!), orientations and finishes, which can complement the design of most rooms in your home.  

Many of today’s Murphy bed models, such as Lori Wall Beds, are high quality pieces of furniture that can help you transform your spare guest room into a stylish and functional living space. 

A Double Murphy bed, also called a Full Murphy bed, is a popular choice for Lori Wall Bed customers. One reason is because Lori’s Queen/Full Murphy bed model gives you room to grow. The frame can accommodate both a full-size and queen-size mattress, making it easy to upgrade when the time is right.

Here is a guide to Lori’s Queen/Full Murphy bed models.  

Dimensions

There are two orientations available for a Queen/Full Lori Wall Bed.  

Vertical Murphy beds are slightly taller. Closed, the vertical model is 83" High x 64" Wide x 23" Deep. Open, the model is 10" High x 64" Wide x 105" Deep. It’s approximately 60 pounds to lift, plus half the weight of your mattress. 

The horizontal model is wider and shorter, which is ideal for smaller spaces with lower ceiling height. Closed, the horizontal model is 64" High x 84" Wide x 23" Deep. Open, the model is 10" High x 84" Wide x 46" Deep. It is roughly 63 pounds to lift, plus half the weight of your mattress.  

Lori Wall Bed models don’t use complicated spring systems to lift and lower the bed frame.

Instead of using the force of springs or pistons, the Lori Wall Bed can be lifted and lowered by hand using your and your lifting partner's strength.

Mattress Size 

Each Murphy bed cabinet can accommodate a specific maximum mattress thickness, which is listed in a product description. 

The Lori Wall Bed can accommodate any mattress that is 12 inches tall (a relatively thick mattress) or less.  

These mattress sizes are readily available on the market and you shouldn’t have any trouble finding the right fit. In fact, a normal thickness ranges from 9 to 12 inches. Retailers like Amazon, Overstock, and Walmart all offer a variety of options — though Lori Wall Beds recommends steering clear of any mattress weighing over 100 pounds.  

Keep in mind that you’ll also be storing linens and possibly pillows, which may increase the thickness of your mattress by an inch or two.

One of the greatest advantages of the Lori Wall Bed Queen/Full model is that it fits a double or a queen-size mattress. Start with a double and upgrade to a queen mattress when it meets your needs.
