Platform beds are ideal for providing extra storage space when they are equipped with drawers. It is a great space saving solution which uses space that would otherwise have no practical use other than holding up the bed. Of course you can always store things under a regular bed – in cardboard boxes or in plastic crates designed especially for that purpose – but if you want a more attractive and practical solution, then a Captain’s bed is really the way to go.
Here’s a pretty basic model – I’m not sure if this would be comfortable, though:

In the drawers, I would guess that most people store extra bed sheets and pajamas.
