IKEA Murphy Bed Hacks

If you still want to have your very own Murphy Bed, with only a few trips to IKEA, and a few other construction stores, this can be very easily done!

There are numerous online guides on constructing Murphy beds, by using separate furniture items from IKEA and merging them together.

By purchasing an IKEA closet, or a shelf frame that arcs over a bed, it is possible to construct Murphy beds that can be stowed away.

You will need extra parts alongside the parts that go towards constructing the separate IKEA furniture items.

These parts will include: hinges, timber, screws, and bed feet, if your bed frame does not have them as standard.

Is It Safe To Build Your Own Murphy Bed?

If you have the appropriate parts and the right construction tools, it is entirely possible to construct your very own Murphy bed safely and securely for years of continued use.

However, you must ensure that you are using high-quality parts to construct your Murphy bed, as suspending a bed frame from the wall could be potentially dangerous with cheap and ineffective parts.

If you want the safest option, it is best to purchase a specially designed and constructed Murphy bed from a separate retailer from IKEA.

Remember that IKEA furniture is not built to be customized in such a manner, so ensure that your furniture is secure at all times when constructing your own Murphy bed.

Other Places To Buy Murphy Beds

Other Places To Buy Murphy Beds

Although IKEA does not sell Murphy beds, it is still entirely possible to get them from other retailers in the United States, fully constructed or flat-packed!

Murphy beds can easily be purchased online from a number of retailers including Amazon, and Home Depot, which sell a large variety of Murphy beds and kits, such as small chests that store the mattress and pillows, and closet-shaped Murphy beds that add a grand look to a room.

Other stores that stock the bed within their locations include Walmart and Costco. You would also do well to search for Murphy beds from specialized furniture stores, and craftsmen who specialize in building beds, including the Murphy.

This will ensure that you receive a high-quality product that is secure, and fixed properly to your wall.

Does IKEA Have Any Alternatives To The Murphy Bed?

IKEA does not have a Murphy bed available either in-store or online, but they do sell a variety of beds that can be adjusted or customized in particular ways, or beds that can be stored away after use.

IKEA sells sofa beds, in which the bed folds out from the sofa, which can be done each night, and then stored away easily in the morning.

IKEA also sells the Kura variety of bunk beds. While it cannot be stored away, it can be personalized as the customer needs, being able to move the bed up or down the frame as needed, or adding an extra bed to accommodate two users.

Can I Return An Altered Furniture Item To IKEA?

Absolutely not. IKEA does not currently sell Murphy beds, and thus would be unwilling to take back an entire Murphy bed set.

As well as this, once an IKEA item has been opened, used, and altered, as it would have been when constructing your own Murphy bed, its warranty has been lessened considerably, and it is now considered unseeable.

It may still be possible to return the separate furniture that you have used to build your Murphy bed, but they must be entirely separated from each other, and returned as separate items, with their original packaging and your original proof of purchase in the form of a receipt or order confirmation.

Be wary that IKEA may still refuse your return at this point, as they would most likely have to scrap or recycle your returned furniture.

No. IKEA does not currently sell any variety of Murphy beds across either their retail stores or their online stores. These beds can be made by following a few online guides and using IKEA furniture, but they could potentially pose a safety hazard.

Murphy Beds can be purchased easily elsewhere, and IKEA does sell a number of stowable beds, mostly in the form of sofa beds.
