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.

We Care About Your Safety: We've designed, tested, re-designed, and re-proven our products to make them as safe as possible for you and your guests to use.

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 every day use, this mechanism allows for varying spring combinations in order to balance all bed sizes Single through King, and creates easy fingertip operation.

Queen Size Panel Bed.

Ordering and delivery was fast and easy. I bought the hardware only, and built my own cabinet and panel front. I downloaded the instructions from the website and using the provided material cut sheet was able to buy material and cut the cabinet pieces while waiting for the hardware to arrive. The instructions were accurate and easy to follow, and we’re very happy with the finished project.

Murphy Bed

Works great! Comfortable and very stable. Could make the bed with sheets and blanket and leave the comforter and pillows off. It closes up just fine. Even hung a picture on the wall!

Great Bed Kit!

I really like this kit. Easy to put together. I was able to modify cabinet depth to add shelving to the inside. Knowing how the final design is, I would adjust how the bed closes for my next project. The door is inset about 1/2” and my next build wants the door to match their existing cabinet doors that are full overlay so I’ll just tweak it a bit. But overall very happy with the design. I used 7 springs for a heavy queen sized mattress.
