These Deluxe Murphy Bed Kits include all of the necessary hardware included in our standard kit 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 instructions for basic cabinet construction and instructional DVD. Hardware available in Twin, Full or Queen sizes. For horizontal applications, see our Side Mount Deluxe Murphy Bed kits.


Features:
  • 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.
  • Kit includes step by step instructions for building a basic cabinet and mounting the hardware. Additional plan for bookcase (pictured) is sold separately.
  • 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.
  • Recommended for standard mattress sizes; no box spring is used.
  • Can accommodate for sleeping up to 1,000 lbs
  • Free plans are designed only to work with the hardware kit mentioned in the plan.

If you can follow instructions you can build it
I researched a few different brands and types of Murphy beds then chose the Rockler brand. Both for its construction materials and the abundance of free and simple to understand instructions and drawings. I was able to look the plans over, get a materials list to determine an estimated cost, all without spending a dime. I would highly recommend this or any of their kits to anyone with basic carpentry skills. I used the plans from a different kit to add the two side cabinets as this bed was installed in the baby’s room as a guest bed.

Great bed
Quality hardware, good directions, a little expensive for what it is. Very simple, took me a day to cut out plywood and install hardware and sand and seal. The next day to build the bed platform and finish on exposed side. Took an hour to set it all up in the cabin it was going to be for. Working perfect.

Great video and cut list with quality hardware
This kit is awesome and with the extensive, accurate, and very complete cut list, it goes together as described in the plans. The video is well done and follows along with the instructions. I referred back to the video before each major step. Make no mistake this is a LARGE assembly when finished. I almost made the mistake of putting it together in my basement - it would have been impossible to get out! Working with 4x8 sheets of plywood or melamine on this project, I discovered how heavy they are to move around and cut accurately. Very impressed with how the whole project came together.

Great hardware kit.
I’ve now built 2 Murphy beds with these hardware kits. The detailed plans and instruction videos are easy to follow. Finished beds are functional and solid. My wife and I got a little creative with the cabinet faces. One is covered with fabric curtains, the other a duvet cover.
Ash hardwood cornice and ash plywood sides with duvet cover stretched over face.

Murphy Bed
My Murphy bed is everything I wanted. One suggestion--update the instructions to include that when installing the hardware for raising and lowering the bed to use lock-tite on the screws. The hardware can come loose, and although it can be retightened, it is a lot of work. You have to remove the mattress and the plywood top to get to the screws.

Building a Murphy Bed for guest room
John G on Apr 6, 2018
Saw information about how to make a Murphy bed in the magazine Handyman. They indicated they got the hardware from you. We have a spare bedroom that we also use as an office. We have cats who like to sleep on the bed, so every time we have company, we have to wash the bedding first. With a folded up murphy bed, the cats will not be able to lay on the bed when we do not have company.

What extra costs will I need to build the basic vertical murphy bed?
Debbie Z on Apr 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The materials needed to build a Full or Queen Vertical murphy bed can be found at any large home improvement retail store and will total approximately $400. These materials will include four 4x8 foot sheets of veneered plywood, two sheets of inexpensive 1/4-inch thick plywood, 65 feet of solid wood, 80 feet of veneer tape, screws, and nails. You can use any mattress that is UP TO 12 inches thick (including any pillow top) and weighs between 50 and 65 pound for the Full and between 65 and 80 pond for the Queen. You can call the manufacturer with any questions or for Technical Assistance.
I have 84" from floor to ceiling. Will the bed hit the ceiling when I open it? I would like to install a full size bed vertically.
A shopper on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The rock bottom height that you can have is 82-1/8".
The free downloadable plan calls for 85-7/8" height.
The plan could be modified at the top to work with you ceiling height.
How high does the bed rest off of the ground? What is the leg height? I am wondering if I can build some sort of seating on the front that will use the vertical Murphy bed as a back rest but will act as additional support when the bed is folded down.
Tim M on Aug 19, 2015

BEST ANSWER: The leg is about 7 inches so that will be your ground clearance. I'm in the process of doing exactly what you described so I modified the plans. Is you're using 4x8 boards, you can add about 8 inches to the vertical cabinet height and adjust your plans accordingly. This will give you about 15 inches of clearance for the bench height. If you use removable cushions for the bench, that should provide adequate seating height.
I know that the hardware states that I have to have no more that a 12 inch mattress. Is there anyway that I can fit a 14 inch mattress on this hardware or is there hardware that I can get that will fit a 14 inch mattress?
Tim H on Apr 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Deluxe Create-A-Bed Murphy Bed Kit calls for a wooden Leg Support Rail that is connected to the legs and acts as a "handle" to rotate the metal tube legs from inside the cabinet over the end of the bed Face Panel Assembly when the bed is lowered for use. If you use a mattress that is thicker than 12 inches, you should ADD DEPTH to the bed cabinet and ELIMINATE the wooden Leg Support Rail. This means that you must be sure to fully rotate BOTH LEGS over the end of the bed Face Panel Assembly. If you call C.A.B, Inc., we can tell you exactly how to modify your cabinet to accommodate your thicker mattress.
There are two vertical bed items: Item #: 46025 and Item #: 89624. What is the difference other than the price difference?

BEST ANSWER: If you refer to the picture of the Vertical Mount Murphy Bed in the closed position you will notice the four decorative elements in the upper panels. Two of these fold out/down to become legs that the bed rests on.

The Vertical Mount Deluxe bed does not require these legs. As you can see in the image, it utilizes a fold down leg which pivots around the mattress when in the closed position.
I see on the regular vertical murphy bed that the feet are also a locking mechanism
when the bed is closed. Is there any kind of a locking mechanism on the deluxe model? I have small grandchildren and can see a potential disaster.
Kathy C on May 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is currently no latching mechanism for the Deluxe model.
How far up the wall (from the floor) is it attached?
Harold S on Jul 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: its mounted at the top railing of frame close to the wall at 3-4 points (at the studs) depending upon size (width) of bed. From memory, its about 7.5 feet high but you can look at the plans to determine hight
What weight should the mattress be? We have a 10" memory foam mattress and it is difficult to lift the bed.
Carl E on May 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The bed should be between 65-80 pounds
I have a Jamison foam full mattress which is fairly heavy. I plan to build a murphy bed for it and wish to add a desk component to fold off on the face of this kit when closed. I am concerned about the weight of both the mattress and the extra wood on the face to do the desk. Would it be better to buy the queen size kit to accommodate the weight for my full size bed assembly? Has anyone else built a desk fold down/up on the face, and if so, any advice?
April W on Sep 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The mattress weight limit of 65-80 lbs is determined by the size of the gas springs/shocks. They are unable to support more weight no matter what size bed assembly you purchase.
Is there a cut list for the Queen vertical mount deluxe murphy bed kit without the side cabinets?
Tim L on Oct 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The plans that are included with all the Create-A-Bed Deluxe Kit Murphy Bed Mechanism Kits INCLUDE the cut list and plans to build, assemble and install the murphy bed cabinet. The VERTICAL style kits also include plans for building the OPTIONAL bookcases and plans for adding OPTIONAL Crown, Base and Face Panel molding.
do you have a hardware kit for a queen-size metal frame bed?
A shopper on Apr 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I downloaded the plans for the deluxe queen-size Murphy bed from the Rockler web site. Unless you are going to build the side cabinets I recommend going with the instructions within the hardware kit. You can get this at the Rockler store or online. It comes with a very easy to understand DVD. It also has all the hardware you will need to finish your bed.The bed itself is relatively simple to cut out and assemble. The final assembly has to be done where the bed is going to be and I recommend at least 3 people and two step stools when you do this. Once you get the get it attached to the wall the bed platform will not stay down until you put a mattress on it. There is a weight limit and I found a great tempura-pedic off brand mattress at Sam’s.I made a few mistakes but overall I like the way it came out and it is very comfortable and sturdy.Good luck.an answer to this question.
How much weight can it hold?
Bill S on Oct 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I just spoke with the technical support rep at Rockler's and she said the bed will support up to 1,000 pounds for sleeping.
Hi. I am looking for a piston kit for a Queen size bed that I built with a minimum load capacity of 1700Newtons(~400 Lbs). Can you please help?
Garen M on Nov 26, 2016
what in the bill of materials list is included in the kit, and what is not. I know the lumber is not, but what about the machine screws, the c clips, or the plastic washer? If I need to buy the machine screws, what size are they? The size is not listed
Rob S on Sep 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Rest assured that the (2) c-clips, (2) plastic spacers, (12) silver screws #12x3/4", (18) black screws #10x3/4", (16) T-Nuts and matching machine screws, and (2) Leg Support Rail screws are all provided and should be included in the kit. You provide all nails, brads, and a box each of #8 coarse thread screws, 1 1/2, 1 5/8, and 2". Hope this is helpful.
I want to add a drop down desk to face panels. Also a little larger mattress . Will the gas springs function ok with this extra weight?
John P on Dec 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, I have not built mine yet, but I have spoken to the manufacturers and they have engineered the system to tight tolerances. IMO if you were to add weight in one way you might want to find a trim area where you can save weight in another . I do see many versions of these with different outer trims. When in doubt I have found the company quite responsive to questions. Hope to build mine this winter.
Does anyone have the material take off on this? i.e. 4 sheets 3/4" ply, 2 sheets 1/4" ply, etc. Trying to put some costs together. Thanks!

Does anyone have experience with putting memory foam mattress into their Murphy? I have read that Memory Foam will compress when left in the upright position for long periods.
Tim S on Oct 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I Purchased a memory foam queen size matter for my Murphy bed. They store those on their sides in the store. I have had no problems with mine. I bought a off brand at Sam's and it is almost a year old and still very nice to sleep on
Does the kit for twin work for twin XL? I'm assuming it's the same, only I add five inches to the length of the box.
A shopper on Jul 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can build a TWIN-Extra-Long murphy bed by purchasing a TWIN Vertical or a Horizontal Create-A-Bed murphy bed mechanism here at Rockler and then contacting Create-A-Bed/C.A.B., Inc - the manufacturer - tool-free to request the TWIN Extra-Long plans. They are NOT included with the regular TWIN mechanism kits and must be requested.
Are all 3 kits the same with the exception of the plans that come with the kit? Reason I ask, I am not sure it a queen will fit, and i want to get it ordered and on it ways. Please advise.
Mike B on Jul 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No they are NOT the same. They use different gas cylinders to raise the bed.
Is it absolutely necessary to build the cabinets or can you just build the bed?
Steve C on May 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No it is not necessary you can just build the bed.
on the kit with the metal legs, will the legs fold properly over a thicker mattress, assuming modifications are made to wood framing?
Mary D on Jan 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can use a thicker mattress IF the mattress does not weigh more than the recommended window of weight for the size of the bed. The Deluxe Create-A-Bed Murphy Bed Kit calls for a wooden Leg Support Rail that is connected to the legs and acts as a "handle" to rotate the metal tube legs from inside the cabinet over the end of the bed Face Panel Assembly when the bed is lowered for use. If you use a mattress that is thicker than 12 inches, you should ADD DEPTH to the bed cabinet and ELIMINATE the wooden Leg Support Rail. This means that you must be sure to fully rotate BOTH LEGS over the end of the bed Face Panel Assembly. If you call C.A.B, Inc., we can tell you exactly how to modify your cabinet to accommodate your thicker mattress.
Can i use an 18g or 16g pneumatic nailer instead of hammering in finish nails?
Bone on Jan 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Most definitely. I found that there are several ways to the end result on this bed. In no way does a pneumatic nailer affect the out come. Other then speed and efficiency. The main thing is using plywood, NOT mdf or solid wood on the side rails. It is a matter of strength and weight. It is all out line in the comprehensive instructions and dvd that comes in the hardware package.
I have to twin beds that I need to buy the Murphy bed hardware for. Do you have a download for the twin like you have for the full & queen. Or does this information come with the hardware kit that will include all the material list and size of the cuts of all the wood for twin bed?
dennis a on May 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This information will be in the hardware kit for the twin murphy bed
How can I get another copy of the instruction video? I ended up packing it during our move and it is in the middle of a storage unit.
Doug C on May 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: C.A.B., Inc./ Create-A-Bed will be happy to mail replacement copies of your instruction books or email PDF files of them at your request if you call us toll-free.
For a vertical bed I want to minimize how long it extends into the room. The plan shows 87" for a queen size bed. Can I reduce that length since the mattress is only 80"?
Bob P on Oct 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't believe that it would be possible. The pivot point is such that the bed nearly touches the wall when upright, and swings out very little away from the wall. There is almost an inch between the top of the mattress and the end of the bed support, so you really only have 6 "spare" inches. Suggest that you either look at a double bed, or at the Side Mount version which comes into the room much less. I will be building a side mound for a second room for this very reason.

I have a memory foam mattress which is a bit heavier than traditional inner spring mattresses and doesn't maintain its shape as well. Will this murphy bed design work for my mattress? It's hard to weigh since it is so bulky/deformable, but I'd guess the queen size is about 130-140 lbs.
Mike F on Sep 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I enjoy having the Murphy bed since it frees up valuable space and very accessable when needed.
The mattress I used ,from another bed is quite heavy, I dont have the weight ,but takes a little more effort than shown in the video. Would probably invest in a lighter mattress if its used frequently.

Can the Side Rails be solid wood? The plans strongly say "must be plywood" why is this? Is this a weight issue?

BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't use solid wood. There is a LOT of torque on that part of the side where the cylinder attaches. Solid wood could split over time. Use plywood and edge it with some 1/4"x3/4" solid wood. You could use solid wood at the foot.
It is not a weight issue.

Will the kit mechanisms support a customized bed width of approx 8ft? (king size + japanese syle frame)

BEST ANSWER: I actually did this. I used the queen package to build a king-sized bed. I had to recalculate all the dimensions, and had to select a very light-weight, relatively thin foam mattress to make it work. One caution - the king sized bed pan will not fit through any normal household doorways, so you are going to be building the bed pan in the room where the bed will be located, and the bed will never leave that room.
