pottery barn's stratton bed with drawers
west elm's storage bed frame
With a small apartment one tries really hard to come up with creative ways to store stuff. I'll admit that our closet is stuffed to the brim and that these storage beds would come in very helpful. It seems that if you were handy this would be a fairly simple bed to create. There are so many great ways to hide things like with beautiful baskets stored under your bed or on shelves in your closet. I keep wanting to go out and buy pretty baskets to put all our linens in so when you open our linen closet you see neat baskets labeled, "fitted sheets", "flat sheets", etc.. That way whether your sheets are actually folded perfectly or not, everyone will think they are because they are hidden in very organized looking baskets! I need to just do it! You can find some really cute bins and baskets out there, not to mention old suitcases or ottomans that open up for storage. The options are endless!
