Best Storage Beds for Keeping Clothes and Clutter Contained Storage beds are brilliant for bedrooms that lack square footage for a chest of drawers, but really, we can’t think of a good reason why anyone wouldn’t buy one. They’re a great solution for overstuffed closets or dressers, or to transfer clothes out of plastic bins hidden deep in the basement and into an actual piece of furniture. Luckily, you don’t need to spend a fortune to solve your storage problems, as you can snag a great storagebed for $400 or less. Read on for our top recommendations, plus things to consider before you shop.

What to Consider:

Buying a platform bed with storage wasn’t always as easy or as affordable as it is today, and often required paying extra for something custom-made. These days, there are a ton of storage beds online—many of which come with a 30-day return policy and no restocking fee. Depending on your bedroom setup and the amount of storage you need, you can buy beds with drawers on the sides or at the foot (or both), or ones with open shelving in the headboard. There are also beds with frames that lift like the hood of a car with one huge storage compartment in the base, and upgraded Murphy beds that feature shelving and look like a wall units.

How We Selected

Every storage bed we cover has an average customer rating of at least 4 stars, and several have earned average ratings of 4.5 stars or higher. Our picks includes a range of styles as mentioned above, and prices range from roughly $400 at the time of this writing to more than $2,500 for a Murphy-bed-wall-unit combo. During our research, we took into account customer reviews, overall construction and quality, and aesthetics to make our final selections.
