I’ve built Murphy beds from probably every one of the kits out there. Some are fairly difficult to install and get looking good. There is one that mounts to the floor and you build your cabinet around it. I’ve had pretty good luck with that one. (My brain is too far gone this late in the day to remember which brands were which without looking it up. Sorry.)

Either way, it doesn’t seem to be worth it to go your own way and build the mechanism from scratch. The time, energy and final product make the kits an attractive option for the money—IMHO, of course.
