The space beneath your bed is often wasted but these beds with built in storage go some way to make the most of it. Although best suited for storing spare bedding you can also use the drawers for bulky winter clothes or anything that you don’t need daily access to.
These beds are both practical and affordable although you may have to buy the mattress on top – so allow at least an extra £100 or so for this.
