Can I order a mattress for my existing murphy bed?

12/03/2020

A common question Wilding Wallbed’s sales team gets asked is “Can I just order a mattress for my existing murphy bed?” This may seem like a pretty simple question, but the answer can be complicated. If you are in Wilding Wallbed’s set-up area, then you can simply purchase any of the Serta mattresses located on the website. If you are out of the set-up area, then the mattress will need to be shipped to you.

Wilding Wallbeds ships out mattresses daily with murphy beds. The wooden surround of the murphy bed protects the mattresses so there are no issues. Shipping a mattress without a murphy bed to protect it almost always leads to a damaged mattresses. The delivery companies are aware of this issue and charge a fortune to ship a mattress alone. Wilding Wallbeds has worked with Serta Mattress Company to create a family of shippable mattresses that can be sent directly to you using UPS. These mattresses are high-quality, durable, comfortable and like any other mattress sold by Wilding Wallbeds, designed to function and last in a Murphy bed.

How do these mattresses really compare?

These mattresses are great quality. They are all backed with Serta’s 10-year warranty, and they have all been manufactured specifically for Wilding Wallbeds to be able to stand on end without damaging the mattress structurally or diminishing the comfort.

The mattresses are essentially a “Good, Better, and Best” scenario. The Kiley is a “Good” mattress. It is comfortable, and affordable. It is only 8″ thick and doesn’t have all of the bells and whistles that the other mattresses have but it is a good mattress. The Caledonian is a “Better” mattress. It is very comfortable, durable and supportive. It is 11″ thick and built with adults in mind. It is a mattress that guest with sensitive backs and hips will be well supported on. It is the most popular of the shippable mattresses. The iComfort CF1000 is the best mattress. It is comfortable, supportive, and durable. This mattress is 12″ thick and it was designed with the master bedroom in mind. This is a mattress that can be used every day and will blow your guests’ minds. This is the mattress to choose if you truly want to spoil your friends and family.

How to setup your new Serta Shippable Mattress

  1. Remove the mattress from the box.
  2. Carefully cut the plastic wrap around the rolled mattress.
  3. Lay the mattress out flat.
  4. Carefully cut the air tight plastic bag around the mattress.
  5. Remove the mattress from the plastic Bag.
  6. Watch as your mattress inflates before your eyes.
Step 1 Step 3 Step 6

Within 30 minutes your mattress will be inflated to size, but it takes up to 24 hours for all of the foams inside the mattress to completely expand. Once your mattress is fully inflated, simply put it on your existing Wallbed and you are good to go.

What else do I need to know?

An important step in ordering a mattress is finding out the mattress restrictions of your particular unit. Every wall bed company does things a little differently so the maximum mattress depth can vary greatly. At Wilding Wallbeds all of their beds are able to take a mattress up to 12″ thick. This may not be the case for yours. That means that you need to measure how thick the existing mattress is, or the distance from the bed deck, to the headboard when your bed is closed (this measurement can be tricky but Wilding Wallbeds can give you some pointers).

Another important step is to make sure that your existing bed takes a standard mattress size.

Size Width Length
King 76″ 80″
Queen 60″ 80″
Full 54″ 75″
Twin 39″ 75″

All mattresses offered by Wilding Wallbeds are to these dimensions. Your mattress may be slightly different but it is wise to call to make sure that this will still fit.

Murphy Frame

Another use for Serta’s Shippable Mattresses

Serta’s shippable mattresses were discovered as a way to solve the problem of getting mattresses out to customers with existing Murphy Beds but inadvertently, Boyd mattresses solved another problem. When customers order a Murphy Frame they are unable to order a mattress along with it if they aren’t within the setup area. The same issues arise of a mattress being damaged because there is no protection. Now these Boyd mattresses are being offered along with Murphy Frames that are shipped out. This means that when you buy a Murphy Frame you now have the option of getting a mattress guaranteed to work with your frame. This is the same for customers with existing murphy frames looking for a mattress.

So If you’re looking to order a mattress for that existing murphy bed, or maybe you’re just curious about the mattress options available to you. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns or interests at (866) 877-7803.
