Reader Rebecca tipped us off to the Moddi Murphy Bed Kit, and frankly, we're surprised we haven't seen it before! Moddi sells instructions to create your own wall-mounted Murphy bed with inexpensive parts from IKEA and a hardware store. While the instructions will cost you $8, Moddi publishes a free parts list on their website. If your home is short on space, a Murphy bed can be a great way to maximize minimal square footage while ensuring you get a good night’s sleep. And as is the case with a variety of DIY tasks, you can select your ideal Murphy bed based on your skills and budget. If you prefer a more involved project, you can also build the bed yourself before installing. You’ll also want to locate the studs within the desired wall to provide maximum support for the bed.
The Moddi murphy bed is an easy to follow, step by step plan that includes a complete parts list, tools list, and mechanism parts list. Since this is where most problems building the Moddi occur, skipping this step with the Lori will make your life 10x easier. Don't get me wrong, the Moddi is a great looking bed, however it limits you in a lot of ways.
Now I've never seen a Lori or a Moddi in person, but a lot of you have emailed to say that the Moddi isn't a bed you would use on a nightly basis because of fear that the mechanisms would malfunction or the base would give out.


You could opt to buy an already-assembled kit, meaning you’ll simply need to install the necessary hardware with the bed. For an inexpensive option, the Moddi Murphy bed uses parts purchased from a hardware store or Ikea, and a twin bed can be assembled for around $275. Although the space around the bed can be used when the bed is secured against the wall, you may want to choose a more empty area of your room so that you’re not moving furniture or stuff out of the way every night. Perfect for the beginner “do-it-yourselfer,” the Moddi murphy bed can be assemble in less that 2 hours, and will only require 1 trip to a local home builders center and one trip to Ikea.
When the bed is folded, the base forms into 2 shelves (on the middle, one at the top) for you to store knick-knacks, mail, etc. The Moddi murphy bed is the cheapest murphy bed available allowing space savings at an affordable price.
The Lori is a stylish bed with many options that easily transforms into a functional storage area when folded. When it's time to go to sleep, there's a shelf on the inside of the bed frame that folds down and acts like a nightstand to hold your cell phone, night light, and favorite book. Like the Moddi, plans for the Lori Wall Bed can be bought and downloaded for a small fee, however Lori takes it one step forward by also offering the bed already completed! Just increase the dimensions to accommodate a king sized bed and make sure you're anchors and wall supports are capable of supporting the extra weight. While I love the look of the Moddi, it's not functional when folded up and you don't get the extra nightstand.


You can also hang art on the outside of the bed when in the up position or above the nightstand when the bed is down.
Plywood is strong enough that if you were using the bed in a studio apartment, you could easily mount a medium sized flatscreen to the outside for when company comes and then move it inside when it's time to go to sleep. The shelves on the outside are necessary to support the bed and to provide the rocking motion that makes the bed easy to put up and down. The Moddi is a little more complicated to build but it might give you the look you're going for. Would making the bed pivot higher to do so make it not fit under most ceiling when folded, or make it too hard to lift.
Because of the weight and movement of the bed, having it bolted to the wall might be necessary. I've never built the bed though so you might want to check with the people at Lori Wall Beds to see what they have to say. As for a covering, you need the rounded edges of the shelves to help with the rocking motion of the bed, however if you came up with a covering that included rounded edges that could work.
