Do It Yourself Panel Bed: A Murphy Bed Where the Doors Become the Bottom of the Bed 

The Panel Bed Frame Kit allows you to build a Murphy Bed that has no doors to open, but instead has a face panel that folds down, becoming the bottom of the bed.

If you'd like us to manufacture all the wood parts, too, click here to look at our Panel Bed Cabinets.

Our Superior Panel Bed Frame Kit includes what you need to get started building your own Panel Bed System:

  • Build Your Cabinet: Following our free instructions, your Superior Panel Bed / Alpha Frame Kit mounts to your cabinet made of 3/4" thick material, which mounts onto your wall, at the top of the cabinet. Note: no cabinetry or wood parts are included in this kit. For a bed-in-a-cabinet system, click here.
  • Easy Lift and Lower: One pair of steel Spring-Balance-Lift Mechanisms (SBLMs), which secure to the sides of your cabinet, to raise and lower the panel bed
  • Spring Loaded: 18 springs, to allow for various weight mattresses and face panels
  • Strength and Support: Superior Steel Bed Frame, powder-coated to give a durable Black textured finish, with three steel stiffeners, holds over 600 pounds
  • Sturdy Feet: One pair of high-strength tubular 13" legs with a leg-connector bar for stability
  • Bring Your Mattress: The Superior Panel Bed Frame Kit System works with any mattress up to 11 inches in thickness (Mattress not included)
  • Vertical or Horizontal Mount: Mount your Panel Bed horizontally, with the optional horizontal leg rod
  • In stock item: All of our Frame and DIY kits ships free from our warehouse in St Augustine, FL, within two business days, via FedEx ground (which takes 1-4 business days).
  • Lifetime Warranty: Murphy Bed Depot has the best warranty money can buy on all of our Murphy Bed mechanisms and frames: A Lifetime Warranty! If you need any parts replaced because of manufacturer defect, we will ship you a replacement part quickly, at our cost. 
No Cabinetry or Wood Parts are Included in this Kit

Do-it-yourself (DIY): All Murphy Bed Depot Frame and DIY kits come with all the hardware you need for the frame itself, making your assembly very do-able with some basic hand tools.

To build your own Panel Bed Cabinet System, you'll need:

THE FRAME | SBF - STEEL BED FRAME

Our Panel Bed system is a lightweight, universal, structural steel bed frame with double overlap steel stiffeners. The design is complete with our fold-away leg system and is designed to exceed the strength of wood or aluminum as well as residential and commercial specifications. Our Panel Bed frames are made for use with Single, Double, Queen, or King size beds and the versatility of the design gives the user the option to mount the frame in the vertical or horizontal mode.

THE MECHANISM | SBLM - SPRING BALANCE LIFT MECHANISM

All sizes of the Panel Bed system include our heavy-duty, universal, easy-operation lift mechanisms. Designed for everyday use, this mechanism allows for varying spring combinations in order to balance all bed sizes Single through King, and creates easy fingertip operation.

So helpful

I had my own design in mind but this kit made it so much easier. Directions were extremely helpful in building the cabinet.

Happy Customer!

I recently purchased a Panel Bed Frame Kit and was very happy with item. The parts were of excellent quality and the blister pack packages were a great aid. The instructions were very detailed and did the job. The bed requires precision cabinet work but the end product is excellent. Wish I had done this 6 or 7 years ago. It is a great improvement on a spare bedroom.

I’m no carpenter, and I built it myself!

I bought the Queen-size kit with hardware. I used the included cut list to have wood cut at Lowe’s and then assembled the cabinet and bed with little trouble by myself. It took quite a while...1 full weekend for me...but it wasn’t terribly difficult. If you have the tools, have just a little bit of experience working with them, and can read and follow instructions carefully, you can do this too.

LET OUR CUSTOMERS SPEAK FOR US

Finally!
We have been looking for an affordable and well designed murphy bed for about 10 years. We found all that and more in the Next Bed. We just installed it in a closet and are awaiting our first guests. Thank you for helping us make our guest room better.

The Next Bed

No Problems
This is the second Majestic Library Bed we have purchased from Murphy Bed Depot. The quality of the bed and service we received were excellent. The company went out of its way to be of help.

Loved it!!
Loved it!! I was building a Murphy bed myself for our guest bedroom/office and the instructions were easy to understand. The hinges work with ease and the panel was easy to assemble and attach to the false cabinet doors. I would purchase this kit again if we ever decide to do a custom Murphy bed at a future home.
