Under Bed Storage

By: Joe Truini

We all need more storage space and here’s a quick tip for formalizing that space you used as a child. The space under your bed doesn’t have to be just for hiding stuff you don’t want to put away. By adding casters to the underside of an old drawer you can recycle it to serve as under-bed storage. Before choosing casters be sure they won’t raise the drawer too high keeping it from easily rolling under the bed.

    Having trouble finding small casters for under-the-bed storage drawers. Have seen them in magazines on drawers and sometimes they are called ball bearing casters, flat casters, but can’t see to find them. Can you help? Would appreciate it!
