A storage bed is a genius way to make the most of the space in your room, giving you a place to stash clothes, bedding, and more inside or beneath your bed frame. The best storage beds feature spacious compartments that are easy to access, and with tons of styles to choose from, they'll instantly upgrade your decor so they're both stylish and functional.
When choosing a storage bed, there are a few primary styles available. The most common option are shelves built in to the headboard or drawers built into the frame below the mattress. These provide easy access, but if you're storing items that you don't need to get to very often, you can opt for a spacious platform beneath the bed that can be accessed when you lift up the mattress. Another fun option: beds with built-in storage ottomans, so you also have a place to sit in your bedroom while you tie your shoes. And if budget is a consideration, you can always opt for an affordable platform bed frame with extra loft for storage bins underneath. Ultimately, your choice will come down to what's most convenient for you.
Beyond storage, it’s all about style. Whether you want a modern bed with an upholstered headboard or a classic wood frame, these are the best storage beds on Amazon that will maximize space and keep your room neat and organized.

With a sleek and simple silhouette, this bed with storage underneath can make your room feel effortlessly chic and organized.

According to a fan: “The storage capacity is maximized to use the entire space under the bed - a life saver for small apartment living. The drawers slide easily on my relatively thick carpet and I love that they lock in place on the frame. I’ve been using it for sleep, storage, and reading/tv watching for 3 months now and it is still very sturdy and looks brand new.”

A slat system and center legs work to support your mattress.

Constructed from solid pine, this traditional full size storage bed features a cupboard at the foot of the bed, a bookcase with two height-adjustable shelves, and six drawers built into the base. The drawers can be configured on either side of the bed, depending on your room layout, and the smaller size means you can better organize, since you don't have to dig through a big drawer to find what you need. A slat system supports your mattress, and the frame is available in a dark merlot wood or a light honey color.
According to a fan: “I'm impressed. [...] I'm surprised at how easily the drawers glide, and how much the 6-drawer unit holds. I was able to place 75% of my current dresser contents into the drawers."

8. A Velvet Bed That’ll Make You Feel Like Royalty
Covered in plush, tufted velvet with an extra-high headboard, this upholstered storage bed will make you feel downright regal. The mattress is surrounded by ottoman-style compartments on three sides — lift the top off of any of them to reveal the storage space inside.

11. A Bed With Storage Under The Mattress
With a large hidden compartment, this bed with storage underneath is the grown-up version of stashing everything under your mattress. The mattress lifts easily thanks to a gas lift mechanism and a pull strap at the foot of the bed, and although access is a bit more work with this option than drawer options above, it's still a great way to store things you don't need often, like out-of-season clothes or heirloom quilts. And — big plus — it's also a clever way to store valuables. The stylish tufted bed is also available in black faux leather or gray linen and slats are included.
According to a fan: “This is a fantastic bed for a New Yorker in a small apartment. My closet is literally one foot wide so having the extra storage for out of season clothing, extra bedding and luggage really saves my life. You could put those things under a normal bed in a normal bedroom, but this completely prevents having to lug out under bed bins and also not having tons of space on either side to do so.”
- Available sizes: full, queen, king
