This tutorial of how to build under the bed storage bed frame project is a solution to simply to create a high bed frame that will allow you to store eight (yes, eight) full-size storage tubs. In addition to giving you much-needed space, it also gives the bed a lofty, almost royal feel to it.
If you’re like most people, you probably struggle with finding enough storage space in your home. Whether it’s because you live in a small home, such as an apartment or townhouse, or because you have many items that you don’t need to use all year round, finding out-of-the-way places to house storage tubs is a challenge.
This DIY project is one way to keep your protective plastic storage tubs out of eyesight but readily accessible (if your home has an attic, you know what a pain it is to haul tubs up and down the rickety fold-out ladder).
Note: You can do this project with an existing bed frame, but it’s probably going to be easier just to build a basic frame from scratch.
The first thing you’ll need to do is measure your tubs and add an extra 5” of space to that for ease of use. So if your tub is 16” tall, leave yourself 21” of empty space under the frame. Any basic bed frame tutorial can be adapted to this project, provided it uses a design with four legs. Anything that requires additional supports will interfere with the accessibility of the space beneath the bed.
Once your new frame is complete, you can sew up an extra-long bed skirt to cover the tubs, or just get creative by tucking a few sheets or fabric table cloths between the mattress and the frame. Voila! Easy, massive storage.
