I wanted a playroom for the grandkids that could double as a guest room; a Murphy bed seemed to be the perfect solution. My husband is a carpenter with 30+ years in high end residential work so we looked for Kit that would not disappoint him. Even as he was unpacking the boxes he was remarking on the excellent quality of the materials. He showed me how the construction of the parts and instructions for assembly made it virtually impossible to mess up. In just a few hours he had this bed kit assembled and attached to the wall. Our grandchildren are thrilled with their own play space and we are so delighted to have a "secret" guest room! AND this complete kit is so reasonably priced! You guys are doing it right.

Make sure you’re ready to lift heavy things;)
Excelente value. Looks just like in the photos. Needs 2 people to lift
This bed is a major space saver. Looks great and is really sturdy. Took some time to put together (3-4 hours), but good instructions were easy to follow. Price and quality are amazing. So glad I stumbled on this product. Thank you!
I’m a 59 year old woman and put this bed together by myself. The only help I needed was the last step to close it and attach the latches. Now my home office doesn’t look like a bedroom.
We had to convert our guest room into a full-time office for me during the pandemic. I needed both a quiet space and one that was aesthetically pleasing as a background since I was (am) averaging 30 hours a week on Zoom. We love this horizontal queen Lori bed. We did need to sand the unfinished version in order to prep it for paint. Now it looks awesome, and takes less than 5 minutes for me to put everything away and fold down the bed. Thank you for this product!
After scouring the Internet for a wall bed - it was impossible to find affordable real wood ones until I found the Lori bed. I bought mine unfinished, it took two of us to bring in the boxes they are heavy, it took me 6 hours to paint it by myself (I’m not “handy”) so probably would take someone else less time haha. It took my father in law and I about 4-6 hours to assemble, we are measure once cut twice people so really took our time to make sure we didn’t make any mistakes, we used both the video and the instructions alongside one another which was helpful the video is great to show you what some of the pictures in the instructions mean. A great investment, will last a lifetime, and the ability to paint or stain yourself really means you can have exactly what you want. I recommend two people for folding and unfolding because it is on the heavy side. Highly recommend very happy with our purchase.
This bed is aesthetically beautiful but it was hard for me to put together. I am not a pro at using power tools so it was very challenging and took me around 6 hours to figure out. I recommend someone handy to assist. The bed is very heavy but a great space saver! I did make a few mistakes so the screws went through the wood some areas there is not a lot of room for a mistake. It still works even with a few mistakes.
I ordered the vertical queen/full bed from Lori Wall Beds. I was very impressed with how well the bed is designed and all the pieces are very sturdy and go together well. Realistically, it took about 6 hours for me to build the bed - got some help during the time but mostly constructed it on my own. I haven't used it yet, but I have received several compliments on it as a shelving unit. I would definitely recommend it if you are good with building something yourself. I loved that I could design it to match the room and it is so high quality that I think it will far outlive some of the more expensive Murphy beds I was considering online.
Ready for my next project-made me feel like a pro! Will recommend to anyone who was hesitant like me-go for it! If you run into a problem simply call or send an email with a pic-they will get back with you ASAP!
This bed was so easy to put together. My husband and 10 year old son put it together in a few hours. It is very sturdy and looks great in our room. It is a great addition to our home.
Easy to follow instructions. Costed about $1100 shipped. So, saved a couple hundred dollars compared to other beds, but without the spring mech, this bed is not fun to put up. Also the rounded tops ( which I assume are designed this way to match the rockers) give the bed a dated look. I’d suggest a design w/ flat shelf tops. If you’re looking for an elegant look, this isn’t it, but a solid product, nonetheless.
Extremely happy with this bed, customer service was very responsive and the quality of wood is lovely! Would definitely recommend to anyone!! So happy to be able to support a small business as well!
We were looking for a good looking and affordable solution to turn our guest room into our gym without losing the option to use it for guests when needed.
We decided on the Lori Bed and have no regrets. It took us a couple of hours to put together. Make sure you watch the install video first and assure you have the tools and a second person will make it easier for sure. Great value and solid product.
We bought a queen sized vertical unfinished bed in Early July of 2020, It arrived quickly and I Painted it white before putting it together. It went together very smoothly - I watched the video and printed the instruction. Great bed , looks great while in the upright stored position and our guest were very happy with the comfortable coil-based 11.25 inch traditional mattress we used. Overall a great experience with Lori Beds! Kudos to them !
Was pretty easy to put together from video, couldn’t get directions to save on phone, but did get video so could keep referring back to it. The bed came really quick after ordered. Thank you so much
We converted a bedroom to a home office but still wanted the option to use it as a guest room. The horizontal Lori Bed was the perfect option for our small room. 11x9. We stained it to match the desk. It took almost 4 hours to assemble but the YouTube video was clear and easy to follow. I love the way it looks, it's like we have bookshelves in the room. I highly recommend.
Loving our Lori Wall Bed and all the space we’ve gained in our guest room/gym/home office. Delivery was insanely fast and everything is super high quality. This was one of the most difficult assemblies we’ve tackled so we highly recommend two person assembly, at least for a few steps (cabinet & platform assembly) and watching the instructional video as you go. Take your time, especially with the mattress platform assembly. You want the seams as tight as possible - it makes all the difference aesthetically when the bed is closed. You’ll need two people to keep everything tight.
Only one issue/warning given our scenario - as soon as we closed the bed including the mattress for the first time we immediately realized a major safety concern for our 2 boys (3 and 6). They’re super excited about the bed (and incessantly mischievous) so if they got a step stool and opened the latches without us it would not end well. We wrote the company for advice from other customers with kids and they offered a free second set of latches to install even higher (which was generous), but that doesn’t really address the risk/concern with our little monkeys. As a result, we purchased and installed two latches with padlocks just above the top shelf (you can see in top right of pic). While not ideal, the height and angle make them fairly subtle and we feel MUCH better about our little guys exploring the newly recaptured space.
Overall - we couldn't be happier with our decision and would definitely recommend and purchase another Lori bed.
Someday we will need a guest room again, but now I need an in-home office space. Two of us hauled the boxes in and constructed the full-queen vertical bed. Doing this as a solo project would have been hard, but the pdf plans plus the video were great. With two drills we zipped along without any major problems.
We painted and then poly’d our bed and it looks wonderful. We are so grateful for this space-saving solution!
The product is very really nice for it to be the start of a a grand transformation but it the cost of it was too much for the simplistic finish compared to other models with the same price. Its all manually brought up and down so it can be difficult for a single person that normally cant handle very heavy weight. Overall its nice to have the space saved up with the help of this bed.
We had quite the journey building this bed: neither my husband nor I am very handy in any way. We decided to stain the bed a subtle navy (also something we've never done before) and the color turned out a bold blue but that's just an aside about the color. The putting it together took us a full day and we used the video primarily to put it together. Once in, it looks great. I am a 35 year old female who works out and lifts a lot of weights - I was able to open it myself once but not put it back and I strongly recommend two people, otherwise it's precariously heavy. Overall we are happy and it was a nice way to spend time together. Love that you can move the bed around a bit if needed which is the magic of not having lifting hardware.
Came in three boxes quickly (ordered the unfinished product). Let me tell ya, the you tube video along with picture directions makes the more than achievable. My partner and I put it together in a few hours with assistance of both. Holes and wood cut perfectly. Everything worked as they said. I’m totally happy with this product. Would order again if I need to absolutely. 5 stars all the way around.
We wanted to free up some real estate in our city apt and were looking for an affordable and attractive solution. The Lori bed looks great and was a good project for us beginner handy people. Taking our time, we stained and poly-ed the wood over the course of 3 days (after assembling the side cabinets) and put it together with breaks for about 5 hours. I love how sturdy it is and that we were able to stain it ourselves. Looking forward to (post covid) having some guests and showing off our Lori bed.
Looking for a project to do together, my wife and I purchased the unfinished, vertical Lori Wall Bed. Putting it together was straightforward with the instructions and amazing video. Afterward we sanded the surfaces and painted it white. We are excited to now be able to turn the playroom into a guest room for visitors.
We received our full/queen as promised, in fact a day earlier. My husband played the instructions on YouTube as he moved through assembly and completed the project in about 5 hrs. Looks great and we are very pleased.
