Platform beds with storage drawers are seeing an increase in popularity these days, especially where bedrooms are small and and storage space needs are large. And with the average apartment size bedroom offering only 100 – 140 square feet of floor space it only takes a queen size bed to consume 25 – 35% of your precious floor space (not including nightstands). So, by starting your bedrooms furnishings with a storage bed with drawers you will have the equivalent of a good size chest of drawers without encroaching on any valuable square footage.
Even if you have the luxury of a spacious master bedroom suite there still might be a better use for all that floor space under the bed? Not to mention one less place to dust as often. And while plastic storage tote boxes can be used under the bed, I think we would all prefer not to have to see those. Plus these tote boxes can scratch your wood floors finish over time as they are dragged in and out from under your bed. Definitely not the solution for fans of neat and tidy.
Under bed storage drawers are a perfect space for your everyday items, seasonal wear, or even your extra bed linens, blankets, etc and we have been getting more calls for this type of bed / storage solution. At Vermont Woods Studios we offer a variety of wood platform storage beds. These beds all have 2 large drawers per side creating the perfect his and hers storage space. All feature solid hardwood construction, are naturally finished in your choice of Cherry, Walnut, and Maple with sizes ranging from Twin to California King. Included in our storage bed lineup is our Copeland line which includes 5 platform styles that are available with optional unique open nightstands which allow full opening of the bed drawers.
So if you are looking for a more attractive, easier to use system and give those items hiding under your bed a better place to live then you just may want to take a closer look at some platform storage beds with drawers.
