When living in a smaller space, it can seem ridiculous to devote all that precious floor space to a bed. Why not make use of all that space with a storage bed? In many cases this can eliminate the need for a dresser entirely - freeing up even more precious real estate in the crowded bedroom. Here's a round-up of six favorite storage beds…
- Redin Park Storage Bed from Bassett has 6 drawers in its Cathedral walnut frame.
- Brownstone Campaign Storage Bed, available from Humble Abode, has a unique mix of wood, fabric, and leather.
- Design Within Reach's Matera Bed is just what you'd expect from DWR -- clean lines and beautiful detail.
- Queen Captain's Bed, available from Furniture From Home, is the most traditional bed in the lot. And with eight drawers, it also has the most storage capability.
- The Stratton Bed with Drawers, shown here with the Montgomery Upholstered Headboard, is just one of Pottery Barn's storage bed options.
- The lift-up frame on the Pivot Storage Bed from West Elm makes use of the space under the bed by lifting the mattress like a car hood. This is probably best done when no one is sleeping in the bed.
