What Houzz contributors are saying:
Planning tips: You will need about 6 or 7 feet of space, including the cabinet where the bed is stored and the space for the length of the bed when extended. If you have a longer wall but not as much floor space, you can choose a Murphy bed that extends horizontally from the wall instead of vertically. In addition, plan to have room for a guest to walk around the bed — if one side is not accessible because of space constraints, that’s OK, but at least one side and the foot of the bed should be easily reachable.Cost: From $1,000 (for a no-frills twin-size Murphy bed) to $3,000 plus installation for a ready-made unit. For a custom or semicustom Murphy bed, plan to spend $5,000 and up.How to Add a Murphy Bed
Because space was tight, Raad developed three desk panels on hinges that fold out of the way when the bed’s out. When the panels lie flat, they give the homeowner more writing surface.
