Typically wasted, under the bed is a space where, we, urbanites with small apartments, should be utilizing. But many of us shy away from purchasing beds with underneath storage because frankly many of them are not lookers. However, there are plenty of beds that are functional and will look good in your New York City pad. Here are five of our favorites:

 

Matera Bed with Storage

Starting at $4,485 for a queen sized frame, this DWR beauty is not inexpensive, but it shows. Constructed with either oak or walnut, the bed features six generous drawers and is made with clean lines and beveled legs.  The good news is, the retailer often runs sales where you could get approximately 20 percent off the full price, so if you love it, it might be worth the wait.

 

Hudson Bed with Storage Drawers

The four-drawer Hudson bed from Room and Board comes in five types of wood and or finishes catering to just about any taste. You can even pick your drawer hardware, making this option a pretty customizable one. At $2,499, it’s a pretty good bet for a nice looking bed.

 

MANDAL Bed Frame          

The MANDAL is one of several budget options available at Ikea. Retailing at just $399 this bed frame sports four large white drawers to compliment its solid birch body.  At that price, one could spring for matching furniture and accessories.

 

Raleigh Upholstered Camelback Headboard and Storage Bed

This four-drawer Pottery Barn option has a more traditional feel but still keeps the design simple, making this bed a nice option for apartment living as well as for use in houses.  Together, a queen headboard and frame run about $2,948.

 

Modu-licious Storage bed

If we had one word to describe this blu-dot bed, it’d be fun! That’s because you can tailor this bed to your liking by picking one of three bedframe colors and then individually choosing colors for the six powder-coated steel drawers. Keep it simple and elegant or go crazy and make it fun. Either way, you can’t go wrong. Right now, the bed is on sale for $1,839.20.
