Hack this: the metod cabinet bed

28 February 2016

Beds are one of those things that can take up loads of floor space and leave little room for much else (especially if your room is really small). Our solution? Turn the bed base into a super storage station. Come and see how it’s done.

This big storage bed is an idea that graduated from our small space challenge (check it out here). Feel inspired to make one yourself? Come check out the step-by-step guide.
