As you now know our new new house is wonderful in many ways, but it will never get an A + in the storage department. So as I was choosing our new bed I decided that a storage bed was the way to go. My goal was to bring in extra hidden storage in every single way possible. Now, once the room was arranged for the bed in front of the window I realized that an open headboard was the way to go, but before that I had researched the heck out of storage beds, so we wanted that effort not to go to waste – assuming that many of you might also have issues with storage.
As far as storage beds go there are a few different options, 1) Drawers that pull out from the foot of the bed, 2) Drawers that pull out from the sides of the bed, or 3) A spring system that lifts up the mattress to reveal storage under the bed. All of them are great and work best for different scenarios, but if you do go with one of the drawer options then keep in mind the space around the bed to make sure that you can pull out the drawers to make them functional (often your nightstand will block the drawer new the head of the bed). Because well, there is nothing worse than a storage solution that doesn’t actually solve anything.
Here you go – all different price points, and hopefully some with solutions.

There are a lot on this list that I am very into. I love the simple upholstered versions like #1 and #3 but as mentioned, double check to make sure you have enough room at the foot of your bed to pull out a large drawer. If you are looking for something more modern and minimal then I love #25 from Target, or #29 from Muji. And, if you are looking for something for your kid’s room then I love #19 which has some closed storage on the sides and open storage on the side and front which would be perfect for books, stuffed animals or some decorative baskets or bins to help them keep everything corralled.
Have you guys tried any of these, or have a storage bed that we left off that is worth recommending. Let us know below, and let us know what you are wanting to see us round up next.
