We have a 12x12 office but needed a guest room also. They way the room was laid out we really didn’t have room for a decent sized bed. The vertical queen Lori wall bed was the perfect solution for us. It took my husband and sons about three hours to assemble and it looks great! I chose to stain the edges and wish I had done it prior to assembly, especially under the hinges. My guests did have some trouble with their pillows migrating off the end. I’ll be brainstorming some solution for that. In all very satisfied.
Love our bed the best part my husband appreciated was putting it together it was so much easier than any other furniture we have done. I would appreciate if wood would have been more sanded on the corners were very sharp. I am sure I will seal the wood in the future but not now as am pregnant 🤰🏽.
My husband put together the bed in his spare time over two days. He said the video was very helpful and he really liked that there was no mechanical system to go wrong. We bought a 12 inch mattress for it and it stored easily when the bed was up against the wall. The bed is comfortable when in use too.
My basement has ceilings that are just barely seven feet tall, and just about all of the queen-sized vertical murphy bed options I found online simply wouldn't fit. I was thrilled to find that the Lori bed would.
The bed arrived well-packed and undamaged, and it included a few more screws and fasteners for each step than are needed. The combination of the written instructions and the online video made assembly easy to follow, and I was able to do it by myself over the course of an afternoon and evening. I was impressed with the precision of both the cuts and the pilot holes - this thing is quality made and milled.
My installation required some adjustments. I have an older house with larger baseboards and shoe molding, and it was too big for the pre-cut notches in the cabinet that attaches to the wall, so I had to make the notches a bit larger with a jig saw. I chose to paint the bed gloss white to match my trim, and priming and painting the bed and cabinet was a lot of work, but I'm really happy with the result. If you intend to paint it, you'll want to caulk the joints, and you'll likely want to trim the seams that face outwards when the bed is up/closed. This is all easy to do, but it does require some additional tools, materials and basic know-how. I also swapped out the brushed nickel locking hardware that comes with the bed with oil-rubbed bronze sash locks, which you can pick up for a few bucks at any hardware store.
I'm thrilled with the overall result - the finished product looks great, the shelves are super useful and functional, the bed is sturdy and built to last, and I've reclaimed enough floor space to turn our guest room into an office (while still being able to convert it back to a guest room as needed). I'd definitely recommend the Lori bed to anybody looking for a murphy bed, and when you compare its build quality and price point to the other murphy beds out there, the Lori bed is a steal.
I was very overwhelmed when I started opening the boxes. I purchased unfinished so I could torch, stain and finish to my liking. It took me several days to finish the staining and painting. After bringing all pieces into the spare room and watching the video it was not that complicated. I love the fact it didn't cost me an arm and a leg to get a bed that suited my needs. Overall 99% happy with purchase.
This bed is so adorable! It really solved our problem of wanting a guest room and also an indoor home gym in our tiny extra bedroom. When the bed is folded up, it has perfect shelving to make it feel like a built in and not a bulky bed on the wall. Love it! It was easy to put together and totally worth the price!
We are very pleased with bed. We are in our seventies and bed went together nicely. It will be great for extra guests.
We ordered the Queen-size horizontal natural finished Lori Wall Bed and we were not disappointed at all. It arrived in three large boxes with no damage and with all accompanying hardware and predrilled holes needed to follow the directions easily. My husband and I put the bed together. We would have preferred to have received an extra bit included as one bit rounded off, but my husband jimmied up something to work. Other than that, how fabulous and easy this was. Now we have so much more room in our smaller bedroom and can use it when we have no guests.
With SO many options out there for "murphy" beds, it took me a couple of weeks to decide! Once I found Lori Wall Beds, I knew I'd found what I had been looking for!! The bed is solid wood, made in America, made by a family owned business, nice looking, fast shipping, and more!!! So happy I scrolled through to the third page in my Google search!
My husband who is the one who assembled the bed said the bed is top-notch. The pilot holes were all spot on! The video instructions made assembly so easy!
The only issue we had was that one of the boards was stained darker than the rest. We emailed them on the weekend that we began to assemble it. On Monday, they quickly responded and had a new board made and sent Fed Ex!! It's now assembled and has our first guest!
Excellent service start to finish!! You can't go wrong with a Lori Wall Bed!!
My brother and I set it up in a few hours and it seems sturdy so far
The Lori Wall Bed opened up a ton of space in our spare bedroom and I love the shelf on the front to put my overflow of books onto. It took me about 5 hours to put it together alone with many breaks, and I used one coat of Minwax in Dark Walnut to stain it. The wall bed comes with a notch for baseboard trim which was great, and the video and instructions were pretty easy to follow. I had looked at a ton of murphy beds online and all were more expensive and generally didn't look as good, in my opinion.
I am very happy with the queen size vertical bed.
It is well designed and assembled without any issues.
The price was good compared to other similar products and I like that it was made entirely from quality plywood.
I was able to install a nice fold down desk between the two large vertical boards. It makes a nice home office space with the large shelf above, but it still folds easily into the bed frame when the bed is folded out.
We love our Lori Wall Bed. My husband said it was super easy to install and he even wall papered it! We love the shelves. Perfect for our wine and entertaining.
Outstanding product, start to finish! I had several questions before ordering -- including very specific measurements not shown in the online documents -- and the Lori Wall Beds customer service team responded promptly, completely, and kindly every time. The online order process was seamless and the bed was delivered within 5 days of ordering, no expedited shipping required. The assembly instructions and online video made the assembly process really easy to follow along. I'd say I have "average to better-than-average" skills with basic power tools and had no problem with this assembly. The fact that ALL the required hardware (even drill-bits) is included is a MAJOR plus. I had a friend help me with the assembly: it took us a total of 8 hours, spaced out over several days. There was only one edit we made to the assembly: I used a counter-sink drill-bit to create grooves that will allow the screws on the bottom of the cabinet to be flush with the wood (otherwise, the screw-heads would have a good chance of damaging the wood floors on which the cabinet sits). I had to cut some wood to act as shims behind the cabinet because it sits against a wall that has wainscotting on the bottom half, including trim at the top, so the top half of the cabinet didn't sit flush against the wall (where it is anchored): the wood blocks acted as fillers to bridge the gap (about 1 1/2") and worked like a charm. I had to buy some extra long screws to anchor the bed into the wall studs because of that extra distance, but the cabinet seems super secure. I applied adhesive-backed wallpaper for the front face and it really transformed the bed's look. I also designed a folding desk that extends out from underneath the lower shelf but can be folded flat against the bed's platform when the bed needs to be used. I'd love to see Lori Wall Beds make an add-on like this available for-purchase because it would be relatively easy to supplement the bed and make the space even more usable. Overall, I highly recommend a Lori Wall Beds, especially because the value really can't be beat!
Bed is beyond our expectations! Installation was quite easy (highly recommend following along the video). We love the functionality opened and closed and is the center piece of our now re-purposed guest room. When closed we are using the lower shelf as work station for working from home!
I have three granddaughters under the age of 5. My guest bedroom immediately became the play room for them. However, on occasion, I have guest from out of town that visit and spend the night. This was the perfect solution! Since the grands do play more often that guest stay, I didn't want to take the entire room for a bed that was only used occasionally. I put a 10inch memory foam mattress on it and it sleeps like a dream!
This was a great purchase and looks great in it’s place. I was able to build this with no issues. Read the instructions, take your time. As of now, I can operate by myself too.
Assembly went smoothly and the bed looks great. Easy to fold up or down with two people. Excellent quality for an excellent price. Can’t wait to try it out when we can have guests again!
This is quite a stunning bed. It makes for a BRILLIANT backdrop for zoom and for plants and when extended it is a super comfy bed. It’s a tad heavy but like I’m getting fierce arms by putting it up and down. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!
We ordered the queen Lori bed primarily because it was all wood and we would have some control over modifications if needed. We ended up needing to provide a slightly larger radius in order to lift it up into position on a wall with only 7 foot ceilings. See the photos. We took off the front trim on both side panels and cut a wedge off. Then it rolled right up into place. (The math was easy. The measure of the diagonal from one bottom corner to the opposite top corner needed to be less than the ceiling height.) Once installed on the wall, we reattached the trim and screwed the little wedge back on. After painting, nothing shows. If we ever need to move it, we can unscrew the wedge and the trim and move it back down.
This is an unusual need, but we were grateful that it worked out. We painted the entire bed white. At first we were worried (at least I was!) that it was just too heavy to lift. But even with the mattress in place the two of us (late 60s, average shape), using good body mechanics, can lift it without any difficulty.
The bed is solid, looks great, and made sorely needed space in my office. Customer service was excellent -Danielle did a great job helping me with a small issue. For the money, you will not find a better option (my bed is a horizontal twin that I stained)
Thanks to the online video, assembly was easy to accomplish, though still time consuming. Construction of parts was well thought out to facilitate assembly. What took longest for me was painting with Polyurethane to protect the wood. We love the fact that the shelves provide a place for us to display some of our "treasures".
This bed was exactly what we needed. We had to convert a bedroom into an office because of the covid. This fits the space perfectly and at the same time provides a third bed for guests. It was very easy to assemble. I do wish you had the option to upgrade to have Lori paint the bed for you (I hate to paint) that would be huge. I would have paid for that:-) All in all an excellent product!!!
