Storage beds once seemed like the orthopedic shoe of the design world—sensible, but not stylish. These days, some are so attractive that you may want one even if your bedroom is spacious. Ideal for small starter apartments, modern storage beds come in a range of designs from very basic with clean lines to more luxe, upholstered options.
