Lift storage bed
New Tools From the National Hardware Show - Fine Homebuilding
If you're lacking storage space, you might want to build a bed with the Platform Bed Lift Kit. The space created is great for seasonal or seldom-used items, and it keeps them safe and out of the way. The kit includes the gas lift arms, hinges, and detailed instructions, with a cutlist for the lumber and plywood components. Prices start at $60 for a double and go up to $73 for a king-size version. The lumber and plywood are not included.
Because our new house is "storage limited", Judy wanted a master bed that provided more storage. Drawers under the bed are one thing, but this is fantastic. The entire bed frame lifts up on pistons (no need to remove bedding) and the complete inside of this queen size bed is available for storage with easy access. The ultimate Storage Bed - now look and see the one I built for the Guest room.
