Inspired by the space-saving bed designs featured on sailing ships, captain's beds manufactured for land-dwellers' homes feature raised platforms, drawers and open shelves. Available in twin, full, queen and king sizes, a captain's bed adds valuable storage to a child's room or an upscale bedroom for adults. When organizing a room with a captain's bed, create a plan that maximizes floor space and minimizes clutter. Shipshape Because it is heavier than a standard bed, you cannot move a captain's bed easily -- especially when its drawers are filled -- so choose its position thoughtfully. If your bed has storage features on both sides, anchor the headboard on a wall so the bed extends into the room, allowing full access to drawers and shelves beneath.

The storage drawers underneath are 20" wide x 7" high x 36" long giving you plenty of storage space. They slide on the floor and either have felt sliders for hard floor or hard sliders for carpets. The storage drawers are great for kids storing their toys, lego blocks and just about anything underneath the bed. The mattress starts at 14" from the floor and if you are using a 6" thick mattress the top of the mattress is at 20". Beds are Ready-To-Assemble, unfinished, hand sanded and ready for finishing.
Add to it the durability of wood, functionality and style and you have a perfect bed for your bedroom. Some of the designs are equipped with extra storage drawers and headboard bookshelves which make them even more functional. Construction is made of wood.
