For those of us with smaller homes and limited storage space, under-the-bed storage can sure help us out. (Be careful just what you store under the bed, though.)
Under-bed storage boxes are a standard option, and under-bed baskets can look quite nice. The ones shown above come from West Elm.
Another options is to get a bed with built-in storage.
Apartment Therapy has a great list of storage beds, including this one from PBteen.
Apartment Therapy also points you to beds where the mattress lifts up to reveal storage underneath, such as this one from Door Store. Update on Feb. 14, 2012: I'm no longer finding it at the original site, but other sites have it, including this one. It's called the Lucca storage bed.
But there are also some nice choices I've never seen on Apartment Therapy. For example, there's this campaign bed made from rosewood. Update on Feb. 14, 2012: This bed is no longer available.
And here's a very colorful option. There are other designs - they aren't all this tall - and there's a choice of 10 color palettes. Update on Jan. 4, 2010: This bed is no longer available from the original source, but Soma Sofa sells them. Thanks to the anonymous commenter who pointed me to the Soma Sofa site!
