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.

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.

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.

Think Pink

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.

The Does-It-All

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.

If you and your budget are Ikea fan, here are eight secret ways to save even more at Ikea.
