Bed drawers are a part of many beds that you see in the market and brands like IKEA has done wonders with those styles. Depending on the size and style of the bed, you can have two to four drawers just under the bed as a part of the furniture. If the height of bed is considerably high, you can even have chest of drawers where you can keep the small essentials. For the designs and materials, the price you pay decides what you can get. While some designs intentionally show the bed drawers as a part of style, there are others where you can get such styles where the bed seems just a bed.

For homes where the capacity of the drawers is not a concern, plastic containers can be meaningful items. The boxes in plastic work both in terms of cost and functionality, and the shapes and designs can be in as many forms as you want. You can choose some mixed colors or odd boxes or can just stick to the transparent style to know what’s stored inside. Ideally, you cannot store a lot of things in these boxes, but for small things that are often misplaced, this works wonders.

Low baskets:
