Lean and Green
The Novogratz family is known for its colorful, modern, family-friendly style. Green is still a white-hot color choice, so we love that this Novogratz bed is upholstered in Kelly-green linen. The clean-lined beauty saves visual space, gives the illusion of order and features four side-facing drawers for stashing all your stuff. And until you get your cool storage bed, here’s how you can DIY some great-looking under-bed storage drawers.
The Greyleigh bed by Kerens has modern lines but traditional touches, such as tufting and nailheads in the headboard, which makes it great for anyone who loves transitional style. But it also features drawers on the sides and at the foot, for secret spots to tuck away your things.

Give It a Platform
Platforms came on the scene as a low-profile, minimalistic answer to heavy sleigh and four-poster styles decades ago, but this platform bed on Wayfair has been, shall we say, elevated? (Couldn’t help it.) It’s the ultimate in minimal style, maximized for underbed storage. It comes with wicker baskets to keep small stuff neatly tucked away.
Do you have a tight, tiny bedroom or an office where you’d like to wedge-in a bed? The Ikea’s Hemnes daybed gets it right. It’s a huge space saver, with big drawers and no frilly details to stub a toe on. Bonus: It also saves your bank account!
This twin, white, slatted and lofted storage bed feels airy, even though it takes up visual space. Getting the bed off the floor entirely opens up a whole bunch of square footage to efficiently and effectively include shelving and drawers to organize books, papers, knickknacks and clothing.

Sleigh All Day
Sleigh beds feel luxurious and wrapped in tradition, so innovations in style are a surprise. But Ashley Furniture created a sleigh-style bed that marries a sleigh headboard with a storage footboard. The details on the drawers make it feel finished, rather than chopped off.
This pink-upholstered daybed sure is a shot in the arm. The channel stitching is of-the-moment, stylistically speaking, and draws the eye upward, which is never a bad thing. Maybe this is cheating a little, but this adorable daybed stores … another mattress! Trundles are back and better than ever.
This pink daybed is a winner, but think twice before painting a room pink. It’s one of the five colors that can make your house look dirty.
Not surprisingly, Ikea makes the list twice—the Swedish furniture company is tops when it comes to marrying space-saving and good-looking elements. This smart storage bed does it all: form, function and oh, the storage! Four large under-bed drawers are perfect for hiding spare linens, and holes drilled through the headboard allow you to hide electrical and charging cords. The headboard can also hide a few of your favorite things on the built-in shelves.

This twin-over-full bunk bed system easily accommodates overnight guests or siblings sharing a room. It offers a nice amount of storage, too, in the form of both drawers and cubbies that double as stairs.
Serious splurge alert: Mid-century fans will love this West Elm storage bed, a streamlined way to combining clean midcentury style with practical hidden storage. The upholstery fabrics (slub, tweed, velvet, twill) and color choices (mostly dusty, jewel-toned and sweetly off-kilter) are beyond elegant, too.
