Under-Bed Storage Ideas
Gift wrap, blankets, paperwork, old photo albums and more. For many of us, it all ends up shoved under the bed because we don’t know where else to put it.
Instead of simply throwing, stuffing and scrunching hardly used items out of sight, organise them and put them within easy reach should you ever need them.
Creative under-bed storage ideas for greeting cards, already read books, files and even art supplies bring order to a bedroom. Coming up with interesting ways to utilize space under the bed for your things without a home may also lead you to enjoy your seldom-used belongings more. When we clear up clutter and give a special space to everything we own, it’s wonderful how each item’s value seems to become more apparent.
Whether you purchase a bed frame specifically to use its underneath as storage or you realize the bed you own could pull double duty hosting the displaced, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised how elegant and tidy everything can look.
Here are some under-bed storage ideas to try:
Storage with The Chester Frame with Gas Lift
The Chester Frame with Gas Lift that we sell at Mattress Merchants is a great bed frame offering a stylish and a simple storage solution. The frame features a single large storage capacity that’s accessed via the gas lift, and this space is ideal for storing a range of belongings. Seasonal items like oversized parkas and ski wear, doonas and decorations all fit well, as do other items that can’t easily be stored in drawers.
The Echo Frame and Under-Bed Storage
Mattress Merchants’ Echo Frame is our most popular bed frame this year, partly due to its neatly tailored finish and because of its 2 deep end drawers that are built into the base. Store your socks, undergarments, mobile phone chargers, reading lights and other small and medium belongs in these drawers that glide out effortlessly when needed.
Custom-Made Shelves and The Alexandria Frame
Bed frames that are raised from the floor can accommodate custom-built shelves underneath. We’ve seem some super ideas for built-in bookshelves where favorite novels and often-read titles can be beautifully displayed. Building shelves to fit underneath your bed is a fantastic way to give items like collectibles, family heirlooms and miscellaneous beloved trinkets a proper home. The Alexandria Frame is a good base frame to start with if you want to build custom shelves to fit under your bed. The Alexandria Frame is available on MattressMerchants.com.
Slide-Out Drawers Under The Alexandria Frame
You can build slide-out under-bed drawers to go with frames like the Alexandria, or simply make pretty drawers that rest side-by-side on the floor under a bed like this. Craft drawers to suit your bed frame’s style, or make them stand out by constructing them with contrasting and eye-catching materials. Slide-out drawers made from scratch with wood and metal can be stunning, as can salvaged dresser and cabinet drawers.
