7 Maximize Under-the-Bed Storage

If you're not currently using the space under your bed for storage, you're missing out on a chance to double your bedroom storage. Order a set of risers (our recommendation: skip the cheap plastic risers and opt for stylish wooden ones), then tuck shallow storage baskets under the bed. Suddenly you'll have enough room to store your out-of-season clothing outside your closet.
