#5. Under Bed Storage

Maximise storage by using under bed space, for example, buy or create your own storage tubs on wheels to roll in and out from under the bed or use vacuum pack storage cases where you vacuum out the air to make them super flat.

We love this idea from Vanillajoy.com where they made a platform bed based on an Ikea Expedit bookcase at the endn of the bed for extra storage.
