Under bed storage bins – Almost everyone has something stuffed under the bed. It’s a good place to rarely use the items, especially the odd-shaped ones that don’t seem to fit anywhere else.

Normally, under bed storage bins are built with plywood and wood. For beds larger than double size, use extra support inside the “box” to support larger size mattresses. These supports can run from side to side, between any drawers or cabinets, and also act as walls for compartments below the sides can constitute a fixed individual case similar to any other cabinet. Or, if you want to use storage boxes on wheels, strengthen the upper rails that support the mattress and the plywood top of the distance a number of legs for these “quasi-boxes” to fit between.
The drawers are the most common under bed storage bins method, simply because they allow easy access without getting on your hands and knees. But the best box setup for your bed might not be what you expect. While traditional cabinets and drawer construction techniques can be used with great success for storing smaller goods, there are size and weight limitations for what can be saved in this way. The hardware needed to support large objects can be bulky, and additional complexity can make your boxes less reliable.
