These units are on most lists of the best furniture hybrids. They act as seating when you’ve got people over for entertaining, but they’re also great for stowing items you don’t use every day. Blankets, games and DVDs find a perfect home right under the lid.

Invest in a bed that features drawers underneath for folded clothes, shoes and extra linens. The footprint of the furniture remains the same, while increasing your storage space significantly.
