The Lori Wall Bed – FAQ

What are the dimensions of the bed?

You can find the dimensions for all our beds on the "Dimensions" tab to the left, or you can click here to view our "Dimensions" page.

How does the bed work without a lifting mechanism?

Unlike other Murphy beds, the Lori Wall Bed was designed without a lifting mechanism. While helpful, these mechanisms are complicated and expensive, and you save a lot of money without one. However, this means the bed is lifted and lowered with your own physical strength. Two able-bodied adults are required for this operation, and the bed should not be lifted by children, the elderly, or while pregnant. 

How heavy is the Lori Wall Bed to lift?

You might see those people throwing around barbells in the gym and wonder "Do I need to be able to do that in order to operate a Lori Wall Bed?" The answer is, no. However, it's helpful to think through what it will feel like to lift and lower your Lori Wall Bed to make sure it's the right fit for you and your family. Below are some common movements that can help you determine the strength needed to operate our beds.

When lifting a Queen Lori Wall Bed with a partner, at least one of you will need to be able to perform one of the following (or movements similar to the following):

  • Lift a 50lb bag of dog food from ground to shoulder
  • And/or perform 10 Push ups and 5 Pull ups

When lifting a Twin Lori Wall Bed with a partner, at least one of you will need to be able to perform one of the following (or movements similar to the following):

  • Lift a 40lb bag of dog food from ground to shoulder
  • And/or perform 5 Push ups and 3 Pull ups

How long will it take me to assemble the Lori Wall Bed?

For one person working alone, assembly takes 4-6 hours. If you assemble the bed with a partner, it will take closer to 2-4 hours. Watching our 30-minute assembly video in advance will speed up the process.

What tools do I need to assemble the Lori Wall Bed?

All you need is a cordless drill and standard drill bits, which are included in the hardware kit.

What types of mattress can I use?

You can use any mattress that is up to 12 inches thick. Use a lightweight mattress, such as a conventional inner-spring or latex foam mattress. Memory foam mattresses are incredibly heavy and are not recommended for this use, since you'll be lifting the weight of the platform with a partner. The lighter your mattress, the easier the bed will be to lift.
