In this post: Storing stuff under your bed is a great space saver! In this article, I’ll show you 8 Great Under Bed Storage Ideas to get your started!
A few years ago, I watched this show called “Wasted Spaces”. Have you ever seen it? I’m pretty sure it was on HGTV and it was awesome. The host would help people find wasted storage space in their home and do things like cut out the dry wall and build built in storage shelves to create more space.
I was so addicted that I even cut a hole in our entryway closet so I could store stuff up under our stairs. There was a lot of room in there! I never really had a chance to finish it out in there, and when we sold that house, I ended up just fixing the hole and calling it a day.
But there are lots of ways you can create more storage no matter where you live and for sure, the lowest hanging fruit is up under the bed!
I found that out by making these rolling under bed storage from vintage drawers for little Morgan’s room:
I found some vintage drawers at the ReStore and used them to make this cool contraption!
It provided ample room for all the lego bricks that weren’t permanently plastered painfully on my feet. lol
8 Great Under Bed Storage Ideas
First, let’s look at some DIY options for under the bed storage.
4 DIY Storage for Under the Bed
- Vintage Rolling Drawers- from The Bold Abode
- DIY Cedar Underbed Storage from Pretty Handy Girl
- These are similar to mine, but made from cedar and are individual drawers where I put all mine together in one big rolling unit.
- DIY Rolling Storage Bins from I Can Teach My Child
- These are taller options if your bed is a little higher off the ground.
- DIY Under Bed Shoe Organizer from Anika’s DIY Life
- These are awesome DIY under the bed organizers specifically for shoes.
Maybe DIY is not your Jam. I totally get it. We live in a rental right now and there is nowhere to DIY anything much! So, purchasing under bed storage is probably a better idea for me right now. Here are some great options if this is the route you’d like to go.
4 Under the Bed Storage Options that you can buy from Amazon:
- Rolling white, wire underbed cart
This rolling white, wire under bed cart is the perfect solution to contain clutter in a space that is usually unutilized! The added feature of wheels allows this cart to easily roll under the bed and store clothes, shoes, or bags and keep them out of sight Elevated design keeps stored items off the floor where dust and dirt can settle.
- Under-bed storage bag
Protect household items such as linens, clothes, shoes, toys, against dust, dirt, pests in this super convenient under-bed storage bag under standard beds, attics, or closets. A clear vinyl top on the under bed shoe organizer provides easy visibility of contents; no need to unzip to see what’s inside! #storage
- Under Bed Fabric Shoe Storage
TWO LAYERS OF FABRIC for added strength and structure. Don’t make a mistake with cheaper inferior quality variations available on-line . NO MORE BULKY STORAGE BINS that leave your clothes smelling musty and artificial. DIVIDERS “FLOAT” to adjust to various sized items. They are secured to the sides, not the bottom of the bag. REINFORCED HANDLES with triple stitching and an extra layer of fabric ensure strength and durability.
- Under Bed Shoe Storage with two rows
LARGER STORAGE CAPACITY: We improve the shoe organizer size to 36.1”Lx25.1”Wx5.8”H, each cell:12.6’’x6’’x5.8’’, perfect to hold shoes up to men’s size 13 sneakers and women’ 6’’ high-heels. It can hold 12 pair of shoes and storage them under your bed instead of throwing them anywhere. The large shoe storage is not only ideal for sneakers, heels but also for off-season clothes, scarves ,socks, towels, toys.
Storage can be tricky, can’t it! We have stuff we want to keep, but nowhere to keep it. Total first world problem!
I hope these ideas have sparked some imaginative storage options for you.
