The YouTube video was very helpful for me to assemble the bed and I liked that the majority of the holes were predrilled. I assembled it alone and used it with a guest with ease. Heavy but manageable.
Yesterday my husband and I did celebrated our collaborative spirit by assembling our prefinished Lori bed. It was straightforward, the video was super helpful and we would watch it, arrange things and rewatch just to make sure we got it right. A few hours and a lot of screws later, we have a beautiful guest bed in our adorable little boat house!
We ordered this bed for a small den/playroom so we'd having a sleeping area for guests. Using an 18v Ryobi drill, we were able to complete putting the bed together using most of a Sunday. The YouTube setup video is great, and we didn't have any issues with the pieces and parts. Nearly everything was included in the kit that we needed. Was good to have a partner, but you could do this solo in a pinch. Have an extra battery handy for the drill!!!
What a space saver, added 2 in our fireplace room, great product, extra beds for vacation home, thanks
My wife and I finished assembling our Lori Bed today. It took us approximately 6 hours. It went well with the aid of both the video and written instructions. With all the parts clearly numbered it was much like putting a puzzle together. It looks great and now we just need to get a mattress and we will be set for company to try it out!
Lori Wall Bed was the solution to all of my challenges. I wanted to hide a queen size bed that doesn't get used 350 days a year, I wanted it to be affordable, and I wanted it to look nice as part of my background on all of my work calls on the computer. As a nice surprise, the lower shelf doubles as a standing desk for my laptop. Lori Wall Bed did it all! It was by far the best quality to price ratio out there, the instructions were top-notch and it looks fantastic. Thank you Lori Wall Bed!
I enjoyed the assembly process. I wish I had gotten a finished one I stead of trying to save money. Unless you really know what you're doing I would not advise finishing it yourself. I used a stain with polyurethane built in and it was not fun. But putting it together was fun and easy
We received the bed several weeks ago and were immediately impressed by the excellent quality of the materials. This is top quality plywood, very thick with few surface imperfections. We decided it was worth turning it into a nice piece of furniture, so we sanded lightly and applied pre-stain, stain and two coats of polyurethane prior to assembly. Prep time in total was approximately 24 hours over a two-week period. Yesterday we finally installed the bed and were very impressed with the very complete instructions and the precision-drilled holes and overall fit. Very much worth the money for someone who is willing to take the time to do it right!
I can’t believe I waited this long to buy one of these! It was pretty easy to put together and is super easy to push/pull out the bed. The quality is great, and customer service was great with questions. It gives the bedroom so much more room. Buy this!!
Very happy with the space this bed saves me! The instructions were amazing and clear and everything came together just as planned. This may be 100% my fault for not researching adequately but I didn't realize that the bed platform and the wall box are not at all connected? So that was a surprise for me. I also bought the white bed which feels much more like a white veneer than a white paint job, which is what I thought I would be getting. Overall, mission accomplished! Thanks for getting this bed to me quickly and helping me to be guest-ready!
Thank you for your review.

We just finished assembling this, and it didn't disappoint! It looks great and is just what we need. Customer service was great at answering any questions and everything shipped without issue. Only small suggestion I would have is to make the hardware more matching with the wood, but that is minor. Overall, we are very pleased!
This fit our needs very well so we could have a guest room without having a bed in the middle. The only thing I found needing improvement is the “Cabinet Top” and the “Head Board Shelf”. They both are cut and fit just fine but require some support due to their sagging . I’m going to attach some support along the length of each to stop it from drooping down and support objects placed on them.Otherwise it's a good product.
I love our new wall bed! Like everyone else in the market for one of these, we needed somewhere for guests without losing too much floor space. This bed frame is great and very sturdy! It took my husband and I three hours to build, while taking our time. He can lower & lift it on his own but I do need a little help. All in all, we are very satisfied! We do need to get a rug though because I’m concerned that it could damage our hard wood floors.
My wife and I scoured the internet for a Murphy bed that could fit beneath our basement’s drop ceiling and couldn’t even find a custom one. Then she stumbled on the Lori bed. Not only did it fit, it was also half the price of most Lori beds. We went ahead and spent a little extra to get the finished walnut look, and we were extremely pleased with how nice it looks. Definitely worth it.
We also appreciated how easy it was to put together. My wife and I are not skilled DIYers (in fact I just learned the difference between a drill and driver). We printed out the instructions and watched the how-to video on YouTube and were able to complete it in three days. We spent 3 hours building on the cabinet, 3 hours on the shelf, and then less than an hour securing it to a wall and installing the locks. Except for attaching the lori bed to the wall, we were able to accomplish everything using what’s provided and a corded power drill.
The hardest part for us was attaching the lori bed to our wall in our basement, but that was mostly learning what to do. We attached our lori bed to drywall in front of a concrete wall. We succeeded by purchasing a 3/16” masonry drill bit and using three 2-1/2” 1/4” tapcon screws. Using these tools, we followed the same instructions on YouTube as for wooden studs. The corded drill could drill holes, but not drive the tapcon screws into the concrete. We borrowed a cordless driver with a hammer setting. This drilled even easier into the concrete and allowed us to drive in the screws without camming out. Definitely look up the difference between a drill and driver. Knowing this from the beginning would've made the project even easier.
Received my order within a few days and packaged very well even though boxes were heavy and require two people to lift. I took my time sorting through the parts and laying everything out before assembling. Took me about six hours to assemble by myself. Very happy with finished product. Turned my spare bedroom into an office again as we only have overnight guests maybe 1 to 2 times a year. I would definitely recommend this product!
I have been looking at murphy beds for my guest bedroom and turning room into an office. I researched and contemplated for a while. I am so happy I went with the Lori Wall bed! To get a murphy bed made out of real wood at an affordable price is fantastic! Danielle in customer service was phenomenal!! I had a question on parts for the queen horizontal bed I ordered and minor gap between boards on my part when I put together. I added wood filler and sanded and can't even tell now. I also added slight amount wood filler around edges of screws to help minimize and soften their appearance. Another reason this company rates high in my book is that they do great things like replanting trees and giving some beds away for great causes. Assembly: I put about 90% of the bed together myself with minimal skillset. The assembly video was done well, along with directions, and really helped make the process much easier. I choose to stain and polyurethane myself for coastal feel. If you like their colors it is definitely worth letting them do that part to save on time and labor but love how turned out!! Extremely satisfied with the outcome..Also while definitely would be easier to have two people raise and lower the bed, I have done it so far by myself with little difficulty. Highly recommend this product and company!!
I purchased the wall bed after seeing the sticker shock of buying wood I'd need for a murphy bed I was planning to make myself. The pre-cut kit is great, hardware and included drill bits and square head driver were a nice touch. My main issue is with the latch hardware. One of them already gave up the ghost and the mechanism if you don't get it perfectly mounted interferes with lowering the bed. I also think I might do something a little differently to modify how the bed is strapped to the platform. I hid the strap under a padded mattress topper and it just creates this weird bulge around the countours of the mattress that I'm not a fan of. I suppose it's meant to just be clipped on when storing the bed, but I think I'll mount a more flush anchor to get rid of those.
It's quite sturdy, great price compared to other options out there and my daughter loves it. So I'm happy just not perfect but like the title says, it's a great start that get's you practically 90% of the way.

Quality of materials exceeded my expectations. Precision Cuts and pre-drilling was spot on. Written directions and youtube video made assembly a snap. Highly recommend!

I needed to convert my small guest room into a full time office so the bed had to go away. We started looking for a Murphy bed but they all came out too far leaving no room to walk around. I found Lori Wall Beds and was impressed they are solid wood made in America. The base takes up less space than a conventional Murphy bed because they don’t use the folding mechanism. We ordered the white and love it! Putting it together was a little more challenging than I expected only because all the pictures & the video show the one with a finished & unfinished side. With the white we sometimes questioned if we were doing it right and only made one easy fixable mistake. We got the horizontal queen and I would definitely recommend two people to put it up and down. I need to figure out how to cover the large silver washers but it's not a game changer for me. I used peel & stick wallpaper on the inside wall and I love the overall look. Great product and great customer service, Thank You Lori Wall Beds!!
We bought for our kid's home, 3 times a year they need a guest room. It slept great, looks good closed. Grandkids get a play room - our daughter in law is gong to use chalk board paint on it for the little ones! Took my husband about 3 1/2 hours to assemble, he said directions were great.
I put our queen vertical Lori Bed together over two days. The instructions are mostly great, and the YouTube video was very helpful. Everything is well packaged, explained and staged. One note of caution-it is hard to build the bed in a room that is so small that it requires a Murphy bed! And moving the finished cabinet or platform from room to room would be a challenge, but doable. I built my bed in a room that is 10’x10” and I should have removed all of the other furniture first! Also, according to the instructions and the video, the kit is supposed to come with two drill bits but they were not in my packaging. I’d ask the Lori Bed team to include a sheet in each of the three big and heavy boxes that the materials arrives in that lists what pieces are in that box, so you don’t have unload all of the pieces just to find the ones you need first. Lastly, the locking mechanisms need to be close enough to engage, but when they are installed in the right location for locking the cleat on the cabinet gets in the way of closing the platform (See close up photo showing where the locking side rub on the cleat-same on both sides.) With these small issues aside, I’d give this a strong thumbs up!
Love this bed. The versatility of this bed is exactly what we wanted. Highly recommend.
Perfect solution for small craft room and visiting guests. Assembly instructions very concise. Watch the video for overview before starting assembly.
