About Our Murphy & Wall Bed Materials

All of our products are available in a wide range of materials, colors, styles and price points. All are top quality and our workmanship is warrantied against defects for life. Choose from one of the following:

Solid Wood Products

The door panels, drawer fronts and trim in our wood products are made of quality solid wood in a variety of options. The framework is made of furniture-grade plywood chosen for its strength, environmental concerns and cost-savings to the buyer. The woods are available with prefinished stain options as well as a simple clear finish. You may also use a custom stain if you desire.

Wood Veneer Cabinets

Wood veneers are available in either pre-finished or unfinished materials. The panels are smooth for a more contemporary style. The thin piece of veneer is laminated on ¾” plywood and is known for its strength and relatively light weight. If you are considering mounting something heavy on the face of the bed, wood veneer is a top choice.

Both solid woods and wood veneers are available in the following species:



Thermofoil is a color or picture of wood that is thermally fused onto a core material that, generally, has been routed out to simulate solid wood in either a raised panel or Shaker style. Don’t be fooled: it is of terrific quality and not inexpensive. However, compared to solid wood it is more economical, available in a much wider range of colors and woodgrains and is more durable. Versatile thermofoil can be used to create both traditional and highly contemporary looks.


Melamine is intended to simulate flat-surfaced veneers or painted surfaces. Infused with melamine resins for strength and durability, this material is stain, scratch and heat resistant. Compared to past melamines and some current less expensive ones, our melamine panels are ¾” industrial grade particleboard (the best) and manufactured to the highest environmental regulations.

Thermofoil and Melamine materials are generally available in the following colors:
