  • Murphy Door does not guarantee against sag or twist on doors wider than 36" (Rough Opening 38").
  • Total width of the inside dimensions of the jamb is the size listed on you door option (IE: 30" door is 30" inside to inside of the jamb).
  • Our doors are constructed using a MDF or Plywood Core - 3/4" sides, 1-1/2" top, 1-1/2" bottom, 3/4" shelves, 1/2" back panel, 3/4" casings - paint-grade or wood veneer options available. The face frame and cabinet doors are 3/4" solid hardwood. MDF cores carry our full 1 year warranty. Plywood cores have a 30 day warranty due to a higher risk of delamination.
  • All Murphy Doors will be built to accommodate shimming for both the height and width. If your order includes custom measurements, these same accommodations will be made. The jamb width will be ½” smaller than the rough opening width selected. The jamb height will be 1-1/8” shorter than the rough opening height selected. Please note that due to the special nature of our doors, you will want to have the clearance for shimming to allow the door to flex. As your house shifts, so will the door. Please keep in mind that we do this so that adjustments can be made when things like this happen.
  • All existing jamb and trim will need to be removed prior to installation of a Murphy Door.
  • Murphy Door is not responsible for issues with painting or staining of an unfinished door. We recommend a professional finisher for all unfinished doors. We also recommend that the doors be painted or stained within 10 days of receiving the door in order to avoid any bowing or flexing of the wood. Unfinished doors are sent as completely raw wood, with no lacquer. The paint or stain cures the wood in order to avoid any issues with it. You will be responsible for sanding and priming (if applicable).

Hidden Gun Cabinet Door

As a responsible gun owner, you want to prevent easy access to your firearms while keeping them close at hand. A strategically hidden gun room is one of the best ways to store your gun collection safely away from family, children, or intruders.

What better place to hide your entire collection of guns than behind a beautifully built gun display case? Murphy Door’s hidden gun storage allows you to hide your weapons behind a premium gun cabinet or, more accurately, a gun cabinet door.

What are Hidden Gun Cabinet Doors?

Hidden doors are doorways disguised as other home features, such as built-in shelving or floor-length mirrors. The disguised doors remain secret, hiding spaces you want to keep hidden, like a panic room or a hidden gun storage room.

A hidden gun cabinet door could really be any Murphy Door style that’s used to hide a gun cabinet, but usually, it refers to a Murphy Door disguised as a built-in gun cabinet.

A hidden gun cabinet door helps you keep your family, valuables, or weapons safer by concealing them in a space that others don't even know exists.

Gun cabinet doors are not gun safes. They can be used for firearm storage and disguise a hidden gun safe or a hidden gun shelf, but the cabinets are made of wood and standard glass. The materials are not bulletproof. It’s safest to only store unloaded weapons in the display area of your hidden gun cabinet door.

Your Murphy Door Options for a Secret Gun Cabinet

Murphy Doors come in various shapes, sizes, colors, and designs. Whether you need a single door, a double door, or a bi-folding door, there's a Murphy Door solution for you—most resembling bookshelves or cabinets.

Unlike regular doors, Murphy Doors also need to blend into the rest of the room without being noticed. That extra consideration requires specifying additional options for your Murphy Door, including the following:

  • Type of wood
  • Type of finish
  • Swing direction
  • Type of hinges
  • Jamb depth
  • Type of mounting
  • Type of locking system

Each can affect how your Murphy Door fits and functions in your home. Check out this short video showing the unlimited possibilities of Murphy Doors, including the gun cabinet door and others.

Hidden Gun Cabinet Door Options

You can select the options for the hidden gun storage solution that best fits your home or property.

Choose between plywood or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) composite for your cabinet's core construction. Next, select from eight finish options with different woodgrains. You can also choose between five different modern or traditional styles for your cabinet doors and panels.

Your size options come next. The depth of the Murphy Door gun cabinet determines the model and, combined with the width, significantly affects storage capacity. The hidden gun cabinet doors come in two types, one with a depth of 12 inches and one with a depth of eight and ¼ inches.

Widths range from 30 inches to 48 inches, mostly in one-inch intervals. You can also order custom sizes up to 50 inches. The door heights range from 80 inches up to 96 inches. The height can also be customized, but 80 inches is the minimum, and 96 inches is the maximum height.

Select your Murphy Door gun cabinet hardware to give the look its final touch. You have ten options, including an option with no handles if you want to add your own.

Finally, select whether your gun cabinet should swing inward or outward, and choose from a couple of style options for the casing and trim of the door frame.

Each option you select affects the look and functionality of your hidden gun cabinet door. Choose wisely. For ideas, check out the awesome hidden gun room and the custom Murphy Door concealing it in this short video.

What Features are Included in Hidden Gun Cabinet Doors?

As mentioned above, our gun cabinet doors come in an 8-and-¼-inch depth and a 12-inch depth. These two models have slightly different features.

Gun Storage

Long Guns

The eight-and-¼-inch deep cabinets can hold three to seven rifles, depending on the width. The 12-inch deep cabinets can hold five to eight rifles.

Hand Guns

The 12-inch Murphy gun cabinet doors include a pistol cubby holding up to six pistols.

Gun Safe - Murphy Door

Ammo Storage

The 8-and-1/4-inch cabinets come with a fixed lower shelf for additional storage. The 12-inch cabinets come with a lockable ammo drawer.

Locking Mechanisms

You can choose between mechanical or electronic radio frequency identification (RFID) locks on your gun cabinet door.

Gun Concealment

While your Murphy gun cabinet will look great and display your guns proudly, its true benefit is concealing a hidden area behind it. The gun cabinet doesn't have any hidden compartments but is itself a piece of gun concealment furniture.

Keep your display guns in the gun cabinet, but keep your real arsenal in the hidden space behind it. Your gun cabinet could literally be your doorway into an entire hidden gun room outfitted with a tactical, mounted gun wall.

The Benefits of a Murphy Hidden Gun Cabinet Door

Creating a secret room in your home that you can access through a Murphy Door disguised as a gun cabinet brings several benefits.

Strategic Advantage

Knowledge is power. The simple fact that you have a room that strangers don't know about is an advantage. It provides a place to store most of your arsenal away from prying eyes. During an emergency, you can even hide in it yourself.

Using a gun cabinet as a secret door can give you the extra advantage of putting intruders' minds at ease with false information. They may see the guns in your cabinet and think the display is all you have. Little will they know, what's in the cabinet may just be the tip of the iceberg.

Imagine a situation like the one in this video where a man perceives a threat and accesses the arsenal in his hidden gun room. Now imagine that threat was real and you’ll quickly see the distinct advantages a hidden gun room offers.

Secure Hidden Firearm Room


A secret room provides a lot of security. It gives you and your family a place to keep your valuables out of view of would-be thieves. It can provide a safe storage place for the firearms you might need during a home invasion. It also gives your family a place to hole up until the area is secure and all threats have been neutralized.

The security of the room is reinforced by its secrecy. Your secret doorway is hidden in plain sight with a Murphy Door — the last place someone will look. Keeping your secret room concealed behind a Murphy Door, especially one that looks like a gun cabinet, could make all the difference in keeping you and your family safe.

In a more peaceful scenario, your secret room can be a sanctuary where you escape the stress of daily life. Concealing the space behind a Murphy Door will ensure privacy so you can stay focused or refocus on your hobby. (Imagine being able to step away into a private, hidden place of peace when the in-laws are visiting.)

Frequently Asked Questions About Hidden Gun Cabinets

What is a hidden gun cabinet?

A hidden gun cabinet is a gun cabinet that also functions as a hidden door. On the surface, it looks like a typical gun cabinet with room for firearms and ammunition. However, it swings open on discreet hinges to reveal a new room or storage space.

Hidden gun cabinets are not gun safes, however. The glass on the cabinet doors is standard tempered, so it still risks being broken. If you’re looking for an even more secret and secure place to store your firearms, we recommend using a Murphy door to hide a gun room or purchasing a gun safe.


Are hidden gun cabinets secure?

Yes. Hidden gun cabinets feature all the typical safety precautions you would get from an average gun cabinet, including mechanical or electronic locks. The doors also secure whatever is on the other side by including discreet unlocking mechanisms. However, the tempered glass on the cabinet doors is still prone to breakage if it experiences enough impact.


Can hidden gun cabinets be customized?

Absolutely. Hidden gun cabinets can be customized with wood finishes, trims, hardware, height, width, depth, casings, and lock systems. It’ll be made to blend seamlessly into your wall, so the average onlooker will have no idea your gun cabinet functions as a hidden door.


Can a hidden gun room be disguised as something else?

Yes. Frequently, hidden gun rooms are disguised as bookcases, mirrors, shoe racks, gun cabinets, designer doors, or one of the other options we provide. Explore our selection of hidden doors to find the one that works best for you.


Are there customization options for hidden gun cabinets?

Yes. With a Murphy Doors hidden gun cabinet, you can customize the width, depth, height, wood finish, trim, casings, and lock system. We’ll see that your hidden gun cabinet fits into your home in a way that satisfies you.
