Excellent DIY Platform Bed with Storage Ideas
Platform beds with storage are some of the most space efficient beds you can find. If you don’t have a lot of room in your house, then platform beds with storage are great. They also work very well in guest bedrooms where you need a comfortable bed, but also need the extra storage space since the room isn’t usually occupied.
Today I want to look at some of the best platform beds with storage that I have found online. I always like to start looking at Amazon.com, and this is no exception.
This Universal Storage Bed with Bookcase is one of the top-of-the-line platform beds with storage. This is really a nice looking bed that has tons of storage. It comes with a headboard and 3 drawers – one on each side and one at the foot of the bed. It has a very distinct silver and navy blue finish that really gives this storage bed a good, quality look. Some assembly is required – unfortunately I am not sure how much. I looked for customer reviews that would tell me, but I couldn’t find any.
This Double Platform Storage Bed By Prepac Furniture offers a comfortable night’s sleep plus plenty of storage space. It comes with 6 large drawers (3 on either side) that are 19″ deep. You can store clothes, pillows, bedding, toys, keep sakes – just about anything you need in these large compartments. The drawers are on metal roller glides, and the easy finger pulls allow the drawers to be opened smoothly regardless of what is stored in them.
You can get this bed in double or queen size, and the drawers are offered in 4 distinct, beautiful laminate colors. Right now on Amazon.com, this bed is at a 75% discount. Yep, you read that right. 75%!! I don’t know that you should expect this discount every day, so if you are looking for platform beds with storage, jump over to Amazon.com today and take a look at this one.
Another platform storage bed that is a step below the Prepac bed above is this Gothic Cabinet Craft. It is an unfinished platform bed with 2 storage drawers, and it is currently priced below $300. This bed has a very basic design, but it is neat and sturdy, and looks very crisp. There is not a lot of fluff going on with this bed, and I like it that way.
The 2 drawers, which are recessed under the mattress, ride on metal gliders which make them very easy to open and close. This platform storage bed ships in 3 pieces, and it is really easy to put together. You can choose the color for this bed or order it unfinished. The mattress does not come with this bed, so you will need to include that in your price if you don’t have a mattress to use.
Be sure to shop online for your storage bed. I can almost always find better deals online that in normal stores, especially on big orders. Usually with big orders you get free shipping, and they will deliver the bed right to your door.
