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. 

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.

There are two orientations available for 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. But each unit is light enough to raise and lower  with the help of a partner.   lori wall bed double


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.
