In a conversion this morning, we got to talking about murphy beds and the best & cheapest way to have one. This post in on the various items that I could find for the person. I thought it would be easier for him to see it in one place rather then me send him all of the links. Please note that this is for Southern Ontario supplies/beds, although they may ship to the US.
Fold-Down Bed Hardware Kits
These kits feature a state-of-the-art piston lift system, which needs no adjustments. Better yet, completed beds don’t require floor mounting, can easily be relocated, and use standard mattresses. Leg mounting hardware is also included, as the kits require that the legs be opened before the bed can be lowered – an often overlooked safety feature. Each kit contains a pair of pistons, mattress retaining straps, pivots, hinges, catches, stops, all necessary mounting hardware and an instructional video. Also included are extensive construction notes for either plywood core or particleboard frames (solid wood is not recommended). Available for double or queen size beds, for either horizontal or vertical folding. Thoughtfully designed kits with a 10-year guarantee on all hardware.
Vertical Double Bed Kit – $319.00
Vertical Queen Bed Kit – $319.00
Horizontal Double Bed Kit – $319.00
Horizontal Queen Bed Kit – $319.00
Spring Box Hardware for Fold-Down Beds
Fold-down beds let you make the best use of limited space. This bed hardware is easily mounted and will allow a single or double bed to be safely raised and lowered. Similar to two-piece cupboard hinges, each spring box has a cabinet (bed) and frame member that are independently mounted. Once assembled, the cabinet member slides into the frame member and locks in place with a steel clip. The spring boxes have a durable glossy white finish. Tension can be adjusted using a bolt on the cabinet member. Simple and effective mechanisms, they are solidly made. Each spring box is 9″ x 13″ and weighs 12 lb. Each hardware set contains two spring boxes and mounting instructions. For vertical assembly only.
Single-Bed Hardware – $189.00
Double-Bed Hardware – $239.00
Murphy Bed Plans by Veritas®
Murphy beds create space like magic. This plan is specifically designed for the spring box hardware we carry (select “Acc” in the price line below). The bed is simple to build with edge-banded plywood panels. Many customers use these plans as a starting point, customizing trim and panel construction to suit their particular needs. The instructions include directions for modifying the design to suit any size of mattress. Requires a minimum height of 7’4″, recess of 16″, and width of 43″ for the single bed and 61″ for the double bed. Made in Canada.
Murphy Bed Plan, Single – $9.50
Murphy Bed Plan, Double – $9.50
So if all the mechanical bits & plans were purchased for a double murphy bed, the cost before taxes & wood is $567.50
