We spent 25 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. Whether you have a bedroom with limited floor space or you simply want to minimize the amount of furniture in your life, a bed with storage built into its frame may be a wise move. Our selection includes models with enough storage capacity to replace your dresser, as well as pieces with shelving for all your favorite bedtime reading. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best storage bed on Amazon.

8. Prepac Tall Full Platform

The height of the aptly-named Prepac Tall Full Platform bed allows it to house an impressive twelve drawers in its frame, potentially eliminating the need for additional storage. Its elevation also makes it unsuitable for many people, though.
  • all-metal drawer rollers
  • built-in safety stops
  • surface scratches and chips easily

Weight 111 pounds
Rating 4.0 / 5.0

7. South Shore Spark Twin

The South Shore Spark Twin has a sleek and simple look that works with most interior decoration styles. It's a bed a child won't think much of when young, but one that he or she also won't shudder to see when home from college for a visit.
  • safe for sleepers up to 250 pounds
  • surface wipes clean with ease
  • drawer mechanisms break easily

6. Discovery World Furniture Captains Bed

This Discovery World Furniture Captains Bed will let your young shipmate stow all of his or her gear with ease thanks to its six drawers and multiple shelves. The drawers can be inserted into either side of the frame, so headboard placement is never an issue.
  • solid pine construction
  • meets or exceeds safety standards
  • drawers often stick annoyingly

Rating 4.0 / 5.0

5. Roundhill Furniture Oakland 139

The Roundhill Furniture Oakland 139 is a unique bed in that it not only features two built-in drawers for convenient storage, but also still allows slim objects to be slid underneath the frame for additional out-of-the way stowing if needed.
  • antique oak finish
  • durable dovetail drawer design
  • rather flimsy slat supports

Model B139Q
Weight 131 pounds
Rating 4.4 / 5.0

4. Baxton Studio Sarter Contemporary

The Baxton Studio Sarter Contemporary doesn't look like a storage bed at all. Its grid-tufted fabric upholstery pattern conceals the edges of the drawers in the greater design of the piece, which makes for subtle and secure storage of precious or private goods.
  • no box spring required
  • stable wobble-free frame
  • less storage space than many options
Brand Baxton Studio
Model CF8498-Queen-Grey
Weight 200 pounds
Rating 4.2 / 5.0

3. South Shore Step One Ottoman

This South Shore Step One Ottoman looks like a normal queen bed frame until the mattress lifts up like the lid of a box to reveal ample storage space within. A pair of hydraulic cylinders aid in the heavy lifting, and the open storage space is great for large items.
  • frame made in canada
  • backed by 1-year warranty
  • complex assembly process
Brand South Shore
Model 3107222
Weight 138 pounds
Rating 4.7 / 5.0

2. Sauder Shoal Creek Mates Bed

The Sauder Shoal Creek Mates Bed is an ideal choice for a child's bedroom, a smaller guest room, or for a school dormitory. It accommodates a twin mattress and features two extra-large drawers built into the frame that are perfect for bedding, clothes, toys, and more.
  • drawers have removable dividers
  • affordable price point
  • available in several finishes
Brand Sauder
Model 411222
Weight 149 pounds
Rating 4.8 / 5.0

  • brushed nickel hardware
  • sleek and contemporary lines
  • matching furniture available
Brand Coaster Home Furnishing
Model 200609KE
