How to Raise My Bed for More Storage

Bed risers can be bought at any home furnishings store, and are a great way to increase the amount of storage you have in your bedroom.

Using Bed Risers

.

Step 1

Purchase bed risers. Bed risers come in a wide variety of styles, so choose some that match your bedroom decor. Some bed risers are adjustable and can be raised higher or lower depending on your preferences, while others are a fixed height. The cost for a set of four bed risers starts at around $15.

Step 2

Carefully lift each corner of your bed and place one riser underneath the bedpost. Make sure the bed riser is centered under the bed post, so that the weight of the bed will be evenly distributed.

Step 3

Use the extra space underneath your bed for extra storage. By raising your bed higher with the bed risers, you now have significantly more storage space under your bed! You can use boxes, baskets, bags, or other storage options to pack away objects you don't need on a daily basis, and they should fit well under your bed with the extra space your raised bed provides.
