Under Bed Storage: Our Best Solutions To Maximize Every Inch

We’ve talked a lot about how to improve your bedroom, from furniture pairings to getting the look for less, to how to sleep better. But today, the focus is on a specific spot in your bedroom that probably isn’t doing much – except maybe collecting dust bunnies. We’re talking about under your bed.

So instead of just sitting vacant, put the space under your bed to good use! To help you get started, we’re sharing some of our favorites shoppable products to take advantage of every square inch, and make the most of this underutilized space.

Underbed storage comes in lots of different varieties, for stashing away anything you need organized (and out of the way). For seasonal clothing you need to store for part of the year, try a flat, lidded box in plastic, fabric, rattan or wood. Shoe storage is simpler than ever with a divided box (with room for 16 pairs), a or a metal rolling unit for easy access. A metal grid tray on wheels can hold any number of items you need close at hand (but still out of sight), like work out equipment, craft supplies or travel gear. And to keep bulky items at bay, try a vacuum pack storage bag, which will shrink down large items into easily manageable, airtight packages that take up practically no room.

      1. These are beautiful options. I’m personally thinking number 13 for extra clothes. What do you suggest for a small bedroom for hats and purses?

        1. A think a large plastic container is best for purses and hats. This is a great option. Thanks for your comment. xx -B
