You can’t always control the amount of closet space you have in your home. But when it comes to finding sneaky storage solutions, designers know the tricks of the trade exceedingly well. One classic standby Havenly’s team of interior experts turn to again and again is the storage bed. 

The best storage beds have drawers built into their structure, so you can easily tuck away extra linens, off-season clothing, and more — without having to worry about concealing boxes and bins with a bed skirt. Best of all, they’re designed to look streamlined and intentional; some have drawers that are so smartly concealed that pulling them out can almost double as a magic trick.

So, when you’re working with limited square footage and you don’t have ample room in your closets to stash away everything you want out of sight, a storage bed can make a great — and stylish — solution. Here are the best storage beds on the market right now, according to Havenly designer Kelsey Fischer.

1. Best Storage Beds: Interior Define Graham Bed

If you want endless color and fabric options to choose from, Interior Define’s upholstered Graham bed may be your best bet.

Talk about subtle! If you prefer your bed to not sit too close to the ground, but you still want to get a bit more storage out of it, this Pottery Barn bed frame is a great option. While it eschews extra drawer space, its headboard has three alcoves on each side, where you can tuck away books and even small baskets to hold knickknacks. 

3. Best Storage Beds: Room & Board Wyatt Bed

Room & Board’s low-profile Wyatt bed is a contemporary option that would look right at home in an upscale hotel. Its large drawer — which pulls out at the base of the bed — is sizeable enough to store extra bedding, pillows, and even off-season sweaters.

4. Best Storage Beds: Crate and Barrel Arvada Storage Bed
