Bed Risers To The Rescue
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Recently my girlfriend and I decided to move in together. We decided that she would move in with me to my one bedroom house. I had lived in the house for close to a year and found that there was plenty of storage space for all of my personal belongings. However, once we started moving her things in I quickly realized that storage space was running out quick. Fortunately, I came across bed risers.

At first, when I realized that we were running out of room, I was quite concerned. I didn't know what we were going to do. So, I decided to get online and see if I could find any solutions to help us with our problem. I was pleasantly surprised to come across so much helpful information online. We live in the midwest, where storage space wasn't nearly as big of an issue, so there was plenty of helpful tips from people who were dealing with the same kind of issue.

The most helpful tip ended up being the suggestion of bed risers, also known as bed lifts. I had never heard of or seen bed risers before. But once I realized what they were and how they worked, I immediately knew that they would work for us and instantly create storage space we didn't realized we had.

Bed lifts are simply small pieces of plastic, wood, or metal that you place under your bed posts to give your bed a lift. They come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. Some of them are stackable, while others are adjustable. This in turn, gives you additional room under your bed to store your personal items. This is a great area to keep things like seasonal decorations, shoes, exercise equipment or whatever else you can think of. Bed risers can also be used on other pieces of furniture that you want to sit a little higher like coffee tables and sofas.

So, since I like to buy almost everything online, I immediately started shopping around to see where I could get the best price. As usual, I found them at Amazon.com for the lowest price. I decided on wooden bed risers that could be stacked. I was able to purchase a set of four for under $30.

Once we received the bed risers in the mail, we were able to install them and they worked as promised. We simply raised each leg on our bed and placed one riser under it. Instantly, we created the valuable storage space we were looking for.
