Frequently Asked Murphy Door® Questions
What is a Murphy Door?
A Murphy Door is a hidden door designed to blend seamlessly into an existing room. Murphy Doors come in various designs and sizes and may appear, at first glance, to only be a built-in bookshelf, spice rack, mirror, or gun cabinet. However, each also acts as a fully functional, high quality door between two rooms. Unmatched when it comes to security and novelty, Murphy Doors are hidden doors that are ideal for concealing valuables or simply adding a unique touch to any home.

What are hidden doors called?
Hidden doors are frequently referred to as “Murphy Doors” — a name that’s become synonymous with the best invisible doors on the market today. We’re proud to be the brand that comes to mind for homeowners looking for a unique and functional upgrade to their home.
How do Murphy Doors work?
Murphy Doors are custom-built hideaway doors that function much like a normal interior door. Our doors don’t feature traditional door knobs or handles; however, hinges still allow the door to open in one direction, creating a pass-through between two spaces. Murphy Doors are installed in a rough opening in the wall, as each custom Murphy Door comes with the door’s head and side jambs and casing. Our high-quality design sets Murphy Door’s hidden doors apart from the rest. Superior materials and manufacturing mean our secret doors open smoothly, stay shut, and fit flush against your existing wall for a truly “invisible” appearance.
Do Murphy Doors lock?
Yes; all of our Murphy Doors can be fitted with a hidden door locking system that is sold separately. Our systems include keypads, wireless key fobs, electromagnetic locks, biometric fingerprint locks, or a classic mechanical key lock. Any option you choose offers an added layer of security for the space or valuables hidden behind your Murphy Door.
Can you open a Murphy Door from the inside?
Yes. You can customize your Murphy Door’s swing direction; this means you can decide whether your door will open out (toward you) or in (away from you) when standing in front of the “built-in” side of the door. Either option, however, allows you to open the door from either side of it, so there’s no fear of being locked inside.
How much do secret doors cost?
Our single hidden doors begin at $1,016. Customizations, such as wood type, finish, or additional details, come at added cost. Customizing your ideal Murphy Door on our site tallies your total costs for an accurate estimate before buying. For secret door ideas, check out our gallery.
Frequently Asked Murphy Bed Questions
What is a hidden bed called?
A hidden bed is also referred to as a “Murphy Bed.” No matterwhat you call it, the best ones come from Murphy Door — where we’re dedicated to elevating unique and unexpected features in your home. Our American-made quality can’t be imitated. See for yourself why homeowners trust Murphy Door again and again.
Do Murphy Beds need special mattress or box springs?
No! Murphy Beds work with standard mattress sizes up to 11” thick. You can select your own twin, full, queen, or king mattress for superior comfort. When not in use, our Murphy Bed design won’t compress or damage your mattress, ensuring it’s comfortable for many nights to come.
Our unique design doesn’t require a box spring. This reduces the amount of space your hidden bed will take up when not in use without sacrificing comfort or stability. Our slab-style bed keeps the mattress firmly in place through all the “ups and downs” your hidden bed will make.
What sizes do Murphy Beds come in?
Our Murphy Bed designs can be customized to fit a standard twin, full, queen, or king-size mattress. From a small guest room to a studio apartment, you don’t have to forfeit your preferred mattress size when choosing a Murphy Bed.
Do Murphy Beds break easily?
While we can’t speak for other manufacturers, Murphy Beds made by Murphy Door are built to last. We manufacture every Murphy Bed in the USA, under exacting quality standards for superior strength and durability. When properly installed and used, your Murphy Bed will last for years.
