Q: What lives under your bed?
A: I store an occasional cat under my bed.
— Apartment Therapy
If you'd like to store more than your cat under your bed — and store that stuff with a bit of style — I've got some products to show you.
Let's start with the Basket Lady, who has both under-bed baskets, and this under-bed storage box.
Rice has raffia under-bed storage baskets in three colors.
Hable Construction's Hideaway Storage Bin has a steel frame which keeps the bin off the ground. There are nine color choices.
Room & Board has a steel under-bed storage drawer, available in natural steel (as shown above) or white. People who've bought it say it would be even nicer if it had handles. [via Mighty Goods]
So here's a similar type of product that does have handles: the under-bed rolling storage crate from Serena & Lily, handmade from mango wood.
And over on Etsy, you can get a rolling under-bed storage from Andrew Morel, who says: "I made this out of desperation for a quality box that will not crack or fall apart. No plastic, no nails, no glue no staples are used. It’s made from good old fashioned wood and screws. It will last as long as you have your bed." You can get theses boxes with or without a lid.
Finally, here's an under-bed storage unit from Childs & Co, where "the lid can be turned over to be used as a play table." The company says that this piece is "made from high quality Finnish plywood from responsibly managed forests and painted with child-friendly paint." There are seven color choices, and two sizes. You can also find this at Not On the High Street.
