Homemade Murphy Bed

Published On January 24, 2014 | By Morten Storgaard

This is our Murphy Bed. Maria has designed it and built it. We will upload a instruction plan here on the site eventually. The bed is built with extra storage behind the bed, to add some extra depth and get space for our winter clothes, travel gear etc.

Extra height

We have built it with longer legs than normal murphy beds, because we are used to sleep 25” above ground in our tall storage bed.

Here are some pictures from the bed

First: a picture of the bed in folded up position…


Here’s another picture, where the bed is folded down, and closet behind the bed is revealed…


Finally you can see inside the closet behind the bed. Here we store our trolleys (carry-ons’s only of course  :) we are light travellers), winter clothes etc.
