freestanding murphy chest bed

If you’re considering a new Murphy bed for your home, apartment, or condo and are wondering, “do murphy beds have to be attached to the wall?” the answer is… not necessarily! While most wallbed units are made to be bolted to the wall for safety and stability purposes, Wallbeds n’ More in Keller, Texas offers several Murphy bed cabinet models that are freestanding and do not have to be affixed to a wall. 


Before you purchase your new wall bed, it’s important to explore the benefits of each type and learn which one suits your needs the best. Here we will discuss the answer to “are murphy beds attached to the wall?” and what your mounting options are when you order a custom hidden bed from Wallbeds n’ More Keller. 


Traditional Murphy Beds are Affixed to the Wall


Our traditional wall bed furniture units are made to be mounted to the wall using four different studs. This is a safety and stability feature so that your wall bed can pull down and be folded back up into the cabinet with both ease of use and your safety in mind. 


By being securely affixed to the wall, the bed is extremely stable and simple for anyone to use with the assistance of lifting mechanisms. Our installation experts include bolting your new Murphy bed to the wall as part of our delivery and installation service. They ensure the bed is extremely stable and has no chance of falling over or hurting anyone.

Freestanding Chest Hidden Beds


At Wallbeds n’ More in Keller we offer free standing chest beds that are made to be stable without being attached to the wall or floor mounted. This is especially helpful if you are renting your home, condo, or apartment and are not allowed to bolt any furniture to the wall. 


Our freestanding cabinet beds are extraordinary space saving solutions that look like beautiful pieces of furniture camouflaged in your home. No one will ever guess that your lovely cabinet is also a guest bed ready to pull down with ease! 


Another benefit of our free standing chest beds is that they are quicker to install and can be moved around the room when redecorating since they are not permanent fixtures along the wall. You can relocate your traditional wallbed when you move, but it requires a breakdown and reassembly with studs in the wall.

Can You Take Your Murphy Bed with You if You Move?


The answer is unequivocally yes! Whether you have a traditional murphy bed furniture system or a freestanding chest bed, you are able to take it with you when you move to a new home. 


All of our commonly purchased traditional murphy bed models such as a wallbed with bookcase, a murphy bed with desk, a wall bed with a fold down table, or a murphy bed that turns into a library – each and every one can be unbolted from the studs in the wall and disassembled to take with you to your new residence. 


If you have a free standing chest bed, the process is faster and easier since there is nothing to unfold from the wall, but in either case it can be done. You do not need to fear that you will lose your investment and beautiful furniture just because you relocate homes.
