Side Mount Deluxe Murphy Bed Hardware

The perfect wall bed hardware for guest beds, small rooms, dorms and apartments.
Item #
98% of 100

These Deluxe Murphy Bed Kits include all the necessary hardware included in our standard kits, plus a pair of folding metal legs that support the end of the bed when it's folded out, and tuck neatly inside the bed when stored. One tug is all it takes, and the bed folds out smoothly and silently on state-of-the-art gas pistons. The folding bed hardware is finely engineered, counterbalanced for smooth operation without binding or overextending, and uses a sophisticated piston lift system rather than old-fashioned springs that can break and slacken over time.

The beds are held securely closed, and open gently for safety. Steel pivot pin and bracket points install easily without adjustments. Includes detailed instruction booklet and DVD for building a basic cabinet and for mounting the hardware. Hardware available in Twin, Full or Queen sizes. For vertically oriented applications, see our Vertical Mount Deluxe Murphy Bed Kits.


  • Deluxe Murphy Bed Hardware Kits include folding tube legs, which are totally concealed inside the bed cabinet when it is closed and are manually rotated over the end of the bed face panel when it is lowered out of the cabinet.
  • State of the art piston lift system and counter balancing ensure smooth operation.
  • No floor mounting required; Cabinet must be anchored to the wall to ensure safety.
  • Cabinet can be made of plycore, particle board or solid wood.
  • Maximum mattress thickness: 12"
  • Recommended for standard mattress sizes; no box spring is used.
  • Hardware kits carry a 10-Year Limited Warranty.
  • Can accommodate for sleeping up to 1,000 lbs

Very satisfied
Bought 2 kits. Planning for another. We got rid of our bunk beds for two of these. The kids love them and when they need the space, it’s folded up effortlessly.

Horizontal Murphy bed that fits & works
We have needed this Murphy bed for extra guests for a very long time. Our room is small, & the ceiling is too low for a vertical Murphy bed. The side mount, horizontal kit was exactly what fit. The directions were accurate, the hardware was precise & we would recommend this kit.

It was a lot of work but well worth it. I have a one bedroom tiny house and this bed makes all the difference. The bedroom can now be used as a multi porpose room. The instructions were spot on and the DVD was very helpful. Works great and you can't beat the price.

Follow plans EXACTLY
Of course the plans say to follow them exactly but for some reason, people have tried to make modifications. There is no need. The plans have everything exactly right. You do have some creative license with the how the front will look so just make the bed and then design the front however you like. This is the best piece of furniture I have ever made.

David T on Jun 3, 2018
The horizontal frame will fit into our living room for guest sleeping. The vertical version was too tall, and went too far out into the room. Either way, we trust Rockler quality.

It looks like quality hardware compared to some others I was looking at. Price is great. Will save hundreds of dollars building the bed myself as compared to buying one pre-made. Cabinet plans and DVD included is a big plus!

Gene H on Dec 9, 2017
I purchased full/horizontal to use on an office wall as the center of an integrated set of book shelves. The size and orientation should blend better, be more inconspicuous and allow the area to serve more as its primary bookshelves.

I am planning on purchasing a side Mount Deluxe Murphy Bed Hardware to build a horizontal Queen Bed. How much materials do I need to make a duplicate system as in the photo with the beautiful front covering? Is there a kit to make it where the door to the bed sides to the right & left and the bed comes out separately (like a bookshelf in front instead of a blank wall?
Dragon Lord on Dec 29, 2016
I need to side mount a bed in a travel trailer. Height max. is 75", and it has to clear or rest on a 15" tall water tank (framed in). Can I adapt this kit to this purpose? Can I just add longer legs?

BEST ANSWER: hey I'm taking the exact same thing for a van conversion, did you wind up doing it?
FREQUENTLY BOUGHT TOGETHER: Rockler's Murphy Bed Plan for $10.49. If the bed hardware comes with the plans then why are people buying an additional bed plan? and is it needed?

Rockler's Murphy Bed Plan
David L on Jan 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not sure why someone would buy additional plans, but if you wanted to provide your own hardware, you could build it with just the plans. Not smart, but possible.
Approximately how much does the lumber cost to build a horizontal twin bed?
Teresa D on Feb 20, 2017

Do you sell twin horizontal Murphy beds? I would like to buy two to make Murphy bed style bunk beds.
Denise P on Sep 2, 2017
What is the maximum matresss and bed box weight ?
John N on Feb 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This frame fits a standard Queen size mattress. The maximum depth of the mattress should not exceed 12". We are using a 7 inch depth mattress so we can fold the bed up with the pillows and bedding still on the bed. Keeping the pillows in place is tricky but we manage to do it. It doesn't make sense to be to have a wall bed it you have to store all the bedding in another location.
I would like to attach the bed to a slanted wall. I have a loft apartment above a garage with a gambrel cathedral roof. Will the hardware work if mounted at an slight angle? How much of an angle?The slanted wall is 53 degrees.
Roslyn G on Jan 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: ROSLYN :No I do not think that will work. The weight of the bed would make it fall open. You could build a
falls wall the height of the bed frame ,and attach it to it. Use the space behind for a storage area. GOOD LUCK
D Allen
what is the difference btw the deluxe horizontal kit vs the regular horizontal kit?
lisa b on Apr 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The main difference is the support legs when the bed is down. Standard legs tilt down assemblies that are visible when the bed is in the closed position. Deluxe legs fold in over the mattress when in closed position. I went with the deluxe because it allowed a cleaner look.

Will twin hardware work with a twin xl mattress?
Bill H on Apr 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Bill, I built the side double. I have a really heavy mattress. I would think that the small extra weight would not affect the lift pistons. All the hardware is at the top and bottom, so should be no issue. Just have to add the extra to the wood parts. Don't forget to make to foot/mattress holder longer... LOL
Do you have free plans for the horizontal as you do for the vertical? I'd like to see them to know if they would fit better in the room.
Comfysocks on Jan 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The dimensions for the horizontal Murphy bed are listed in the description for the hardware . The outer case size and the open dimension for each bed size is listed. Then it's just a matter of measuring the space you have available for the bed. I went with the full size horizontal bed because that way I don't have to move a thing the room before opening the bed. My grandson loves the bed when he comes to stay with us.
Do I need the Murphy bed plan if I buy the hardware kit?
Steve B on Apr 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: detailed plans come with the kit, While we made the bed narrower and adjusted all measurements accordingly
the plans were very helpful and necessary , If the measurements are off it won't fit together properly and
the piston system won't work the way it should.
We purchased this bed in the vertical kit but our ceiling falls about 2 inches shy of where it needs to. We were thinking of doing the horizontal (side mount) kit. Are the kits interchangeable? (Can we use our vertical kit but for new plans for the horizontal?) Where can we get the Horizontal instructions if they come only with the kit?
ashhamblin on Jun 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The kits are unique and not convertible in their orientation. You need to exchange the vertical kit for the horizontal kit. It works well and I have three!
I need to disassemble my Horizontal Murphy bed to move to a new residence. I've discarded my plans some time ago and I'm not sure how to do it. I've removed the stops to remove the gas rods but now I'm stuck! Help!?
Dennis on Sep 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Dennis, I think you are asking about removing the gas rods. The bed needs to be away from the wall so the gas rods can over travel and then you can remove them. Hopes that helps.
what exactly is included within the $273? do I need to buy the outer plywood or is the one in the pictures included?
Sara E on Jul 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The hardware is all that is included. That includes the brackets, legs, piston assist and stop blocks. You will still need all the plywood and banding as well a some hardwood pieces.
My house has original 1894 baseboards and I don't want to cut them. Would it work to attach a cross piece parallel to the baseboard to bring the whole cabinet out from the wall the depth of the baseboard? Of course I'd screw the cross piece into studs.
Lynn S on Jan 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can just cut notches out of the back of the bed. The instructions actually show you how and where to do it
Rather than attaching it to the wall, I'd like to make it so that I can roll it (partially) into a 24" deep closet-with the remainder sticking out. Then when in use, pulling it out before flipping it down. Possible?stickingulling the 24" in the closet section out.
A shopper on Jun 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe the design requires attachment to the wall.
Can this be used with a firm memory foam mattress?
S V on Nov 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yes I put a 12 in. memory foam mattress on mine and it worked great every one that has slipped on it seas it is great.
Could you please tell me if your side mount bed, twin kit will accommodate an extra long twin mattress measuring 39" x 80"? Depth is 10"
Susan T on Aug 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes , it will .. the hardware doesn't regulate that width or length
How much space do I need between the bed frame and the cabinet side? (Thickness of your hardware)
Wolfgang B on Jun 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The kit includes a plastic washer/spacer that is 1/2 inch to gap between the frame and the side.
So when I buy the kit it's just the hardware and then I would purchase the lumber and build the cabinets myself?
Nathan M on Jun 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Correct. The kit is a small box that ONLY includes the hardware and 3 instruction books. No wood, screws, nails, stain, finish, paint, trim, mattress, linens, pillows, etc. are included. The instruction booklets are very good! They do contain some templates that you can cut out and tape to the wood to make very precise cuts and drill holes. You have to buy the wood and build the cabinets yourself. I can't remember exactly, but I believe the side-mount twin (the size that I bought) required 2 sheets of 3/4" plywood.
How is it mounted to the wall?
Pat K on Feb 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is David. My brother-in-law is Edgar. They got us confused when I ordered items for Ed and had them shipped to him. I purchased, built and installed the Murphy Bed in our winter home in AZ. The top board is constructed with a 3/4 inch vertical backing board that is higher than the top. This provides a flat surface against the wall to attach the bed to wall studs. It fits flush against the wall and has plenty of space to anchor the top of the bed to the wall. I have built two of them now and will build a third when I return to my shop in April. Hope this helps.
Can I mount this to the wall without the frame cabinet??
Suzi H on Feb 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The short answer is I don't think so, since the pivot points and counterweights rely on the cabinet for proper positioning. Maybe if you wanted to place the Murphy bed in a shallow alcove where the walls were the correct distance apart you could work something out. It would be difficult to figure out all the appropriate measurements, clearances and making certain you had anchor points that were robust enough to handle the loads. Even with all of that you would need some sort of shelf along the top edge of the bed for it to close against. All in all it would be a lot of engineering on your part to avoid building the cabinet. Additionally, building the cabinet makes the bed moveable to a new home or different location within the same house.
Does it come with the whole cabinet or just hardware?
Karen P on Aug 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It comes with hardware only, but has very detailed directions to construct a basic cabinet.
When installed, is the horizontal mounted bed at standard height when opened?
Annie E on Oct 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I built the same one that's pictured there. The top of the mattress is about 20 inches from the floor. Probably a little lower than standard, but easy enough to get up from.
When the horizontal bed is open how many inches does it sit off the ground?
sunny on Aug 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is about 6 1/4 inches from the floor to the bottom of the platform.
i need the wood parts, ready to install; do you or anybody provide those parts?
Tom G on Jun 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My husband went to home depot with the measurements and they pre-cut but he still had to do some of it himself.
Could the plans be altered for a thicker mattress? I already have a mattress that is 15" thick that I want to convert to a Murphy bed .
JD B on Feb 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The short answer is yes...the issue will be in the event the mattress is significantly heavier or more than a few inches thicker. The weight because the the bed is perfectly counterweighted as designed. The thickness because as you get much thicker, the radius that the outer edge of the mattress follows will eventually cause problems when you try to close it.
What about mattresses?
Kim S on Jun 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You build the frame to fit the mattress sizes designed for the hardware you purchased, the hardware package should have a fold up bracket to hold mattress in place when raised and to fold down when in use
Does the depth measurement for queen size horizontal bed include the folding metal bed legs?
EasternSunset on Mar 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yeah. I’ve built two of these and the depth is what it says. The legs fold into where the mattress is. It looks like a cabinet when it’s closed. No legs showing!
can this be done as twin bunk beds with a top and lower bed? If so what ceiling height would be required?
mdmoore on Jun 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The bed needs a floor to rest upon. The bar that you see in the photos forms a stand. Short answer, "no."
