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 has no mechanical aids for lifting and lowering the platform. While helpful, these mechanisms are expensive and can usually be done without. To compensate, the Lori Wall Bed platform "rolls" up and down along the rounded wooden "rockers" at the floor.

Note that the platform is only connected to the wall cabinet when it's locked into place. Once that is unlocked, it will be manually maneuvered and we always recommend having two adults working to safely open and close the bed.

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

For one person working alone, it will take 4-6 hours. If you assemble it with a partner, it will closer to 2-4 hours.

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

All you need is a cordless drill and standard drill bits.

What types of mattress can I use?

You can use any mattress that is 12 inches tall or less. 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. The lighter your mattress, the easier the bed will be to lift.

How heavy is the Lori Wall Bed to lift?

Compared to a bed with expensive mechanical lifting aids, it's going to feel heavy. This is a piece of solid wood furniture. You will be supporting the weight of one end of the platform and mattress when opening and closing the bed.

At the heaviest point (lifting off the floor), Queen/Full beds feel like ~60 lbs plus half the weight of your mattress. Twins feel like ~45 lbs plus half the weight of your mattress.

We recommend you lift with an adult partner. Lifting with your legs and with good posture is also key to using the bed safely. Many able-bodied men, and some athletic women can handle the bed themselves, but a partner is always recommended.

Due to the bed's weight, we don't recommend pregnant women or children to lift the bed.
