Yesterday we installed the Murphy Bed. It is built from rustic alder. The bed is a queen size bed. The cabinets on either side of the bed have a hand carved counter top with LED lights illuminating them.

There are four sets of LED lights, one above each counter top, one above the bed shining down and a fourth set above the cabinetry. All the lights are dimmable and are controlled by a remote with each set on a separate channel so they can be activated independently.

Raising and lowering the bed is very easy, as the spring mechanism balances the weight of the bed panel and mattress.

It was impressive, despite the amount of cabinetry, how much the installation of the Murphy Bed opened up the room.
