How to Install a Custom Murphy Bed with Desk

Installing a custom Murphy bed with a desk is a space-saving solution for homeowners looking to optimize their living space without sacrificing style or functionality. At WWBeds Custom Furniture, we specialize in creating bespoke Murphy beds tailored to our customer's unique needs and preferences. In this blog post, we'll guide you through installing a custom Murphy bed with a desk from preparation to completion.


  • Choose the Right Location

The first step in installing a custom Murphy bed with a desk is to choose the right location for your new furniture piece. Consider room layout, available space, and ease of access when selecting the ideal spot for your Murphy bed. Measure the area carefully to ensure your new furniture piece will fit comfortably in the designated space.


  • Prepare the Wall

Once you've chosen the location for your Murphy bed, it's time to prepare the wall for installation. Start by clearing the area and removing any existing furniture or decorations. Next, use a stud finder to locate the wall studs and mark their positions with a pencil. This will help you determine where to anchor the bed frame securely to the wall.


  • Assemble the Bed Frame

Before installing the bed frame, assemble it according to the manufacturer's instructions. Be sure to meticulously follow the assembly instructions and verify that all components are firmly and securely fastened together. This will ensure your Murphy bed is stable and safe once installed.


  • Install the Bed Frame

With the bed frame assembled, it's time to install it on the wall. Start by placing the bed frame against the wall in your preferred position, ensuring it's level and properly aligned with the wall studs. Use a drill and screws to anchor the bed frame securely to the wall studs, following the manufacturer's recommendations for spacing and placement.


  • Attach the Desk

Once the bed frame is securely installed, it's time to attach the desk to the front panel of the Murphy bed. Most custom Murphy beds with desks feature a folding desk that can be raised and lowered. Attach the desk to the front panel of the bed frame using the provided hardware, ensuring it is level and securely fastened.


  • Test the Mechanism

Before using your new Murphy bed with a desk, testing the mechanism to ensure that it operates smoothly and safely is essential. Carefully raise the bed frame several times, noticing signs of sticking or resistance. If you encounter any difficulties, carefully review the installation process and make any adjustments needed to ensure optimal functionality.


  • Add Finishing Touches

Once the Murphy bed with desk is installed and tested, it's time to add the finishing touches to complete the look of your new furniture piece. Consider adding decorative elements such as bedding, pillows, and artwork to personalize the space and make it feel cozy and inviting. Consider incorporating additional storage solutions like shelves or cabinets to enhance the room's functionality and maximize space utilization.


  • Enjoy Your New Space

With your custom Murphy bed with a desk installed and ready to use, it's time to enjoy your newly optimized living space. Whether you're using it as a guest bedroom, home office, or multi-functional living area, your Murphy bed with desk will surely enhance your home's functionality and style.
