|Queen size Murphy Bed in our guest room.|
But when grandchildren began arriving in the 90s, I remembered that Murphy bed, and we outfitted our guest bedroom, aka "the grands room" with a Murphy or Wall Bed (http://www.wallbedsbywilding.com/). At night or at nap time the queen size bed came down for sleeping, but at other times it disappeared into the wall and the room converted to a play room.

And the piston lift mechanism makes it easy to raise and lower the bed.
Now that the grands no longer need a play room when visiting, we can use the space for a nice reading corner when the cabinet is closed. And the bed makes a very comfortable bed for guests.
