There are millions of search results for the term Murphy bed, and Lori Beds ranks among the top for a reason. While there are many DIY kits on the market, the ready-to-install Lori Bed is a perennial favorite that has delighted thousands of customers for more than a decade. The Lori Bed is the top Murphy bed of 2021.
Quality is king, but factors, such as ease of installation and affordability are also top considerations when purchasing a Murphy bed. The Lori Bed is made of 100% real wood, making it a Murphy bed that checks all the boxes. Each bed is made from cabinet-grade Baltic birch plywood, ensuring its stability and durability. The company offers a range of pre-finished wall beds and unfinished models that can be painted or stained to the color of your choosing.
The Lori Bed is the most economical Murphy bed in the world (starting at $799), but it is not flimsy IKEA-type furniture. To clear up a common misconception, IKEA doesn’t sell Murphy beds. While, there are internet “hacks” out there that describe how to use an IKEA bed to DIY a Murphy bed, IKEA doesn’t have a comprehensive product line of ready-to-install Murphy beds. Besides, do you want to really trust your sleep and safety to a cobbled-together particle-board internet hack?
One of the greatest advantages of choosing a Lori Bed is the ease of installation. Here is where the company’s innovative and original design truly shines. Unlike the traditional Murphy bed, the Lori Bed has no mechanical aids for lifting and lowering the platform. This eliminates cumbersome and expensive metal spring mechanisms that make the bed difficult to assemble. Instead of using the force of springs or pistons, the Lori Bed can be lifted and lowered by hand using your and your lifting partner's strength.
Installing a Lori Bed is straightforward and simple thanks to its lack of a complicated spring mechanism. The company’s printable step-by-step instructions make it easy to install in less time than it takes to go shopping for a mattress. They even offer an assembly video walk-through online. Plus, the company’s responsive team can help with any questions you have during the assembly process.
Quality, ease of installation, and affordability make the Lori Bed a smart buy. Unlike other furniture stores or online retailers, Lori Beds specializes in one well-made product. Its team of associates are true experts in the subject and can help with everything from determining the best bed to fit your space, to helping with the installation.
