I actually purchased these for storage in our church kitchen under a work table--my wife thought out of the box on that, as stainless steel drawers were very cost prohibited. The underbed drawer fit perfectly, we used three stacked, used a very durable velcro to be sure they didn't shift, and the fit, cost, use, have proved to be exceptional, sadly one of the containers was cracked when it arrived but not so bad that we were unable to use it, plus we didn't want the hassle of returning then waiting for a replacement. All in all very happy with the end result.

Perfect for Under a Dorm Room Bed!!!
The Container Store is the only company to carry these drawers and they are perfect for under a dorm room bed. Raise your bed with bed risers and you can double the drawers for additional storage. 2-3 wide will fit perfectly under and raise the bed to fit 4-6. My daughter raised her bed an additional 7 inches (with wooden risers not purchased from the Container Store) and she was able to fit 4 Underbed Drawers ( 2 stacked on each side) with 4 of the colorful plastic drawers ( 4 drawers in the middle with 2 stacked). She still had room to store luggage behind! Best purchase ever!!!

Good storage solution
These bins are a little over priced but are extremely useful. I bought two and can fit at least 4 more without any risers. They are useful to help clean up the clutter.

Sturdy, easy to open and close while at the same time fits perfectly under my bed. Great for storing seasonal stuff. Price is a little steep but so worth it.

I've been wanting underbed storage ever since I was a kid. I am sooooo glad I got these. They are the perfect size. With a couple of risers on my bed I fit 6 in perfectly. They make my seasonal storage so much better and utilize the space under my bed (which is important in a studio apartment).

This has been a great solution to my storage needs. It fits perfectly under my bed and is perfectly concealed by my bed skirt. This is the perfect space saver for a NYC apartment.

Top Notch System
My boyfriend and I down-sized our bedroom. I took all of his belongings from an old dresser and fit it all in these two storage drawers. The drawers are long and stack one on top of the other. They firt perfectly under our new platform bed. Exactly what we were looking for.

This isn't the exact drawer I purchased but is very similar. The purpose for the drawer I bought was to be placed under my coffee table for storing newspapers and magazines. Perfect size and fit easily under the coffee table.

No matter how big my house is or how many closets and drawers I have, this is sooooo practical that I have a number of them under two beds and I wish I could take several of them to my summer house overseas!

Great for dorms!
I love having this for my underbed storage at college.
However, if you want an actual dresser/drawer effect you have to purchase more than one which can get expensive especially if you're a college student.
The containers work well, and they have plenty of room for my shoes and clothing. I still recommend purchasing more than one if you have a lot of items.

The Under-bed Drawers also make great drawers for underneath my workbench. With two, 4-in wide strips of 1/8-inch plywood, and 6 wood-screws in each strip, I have attached 6 of these under-bed drawers underneath the tops of two of my workbenches. The drawers are sturdy, and many shallow boxes help to compartmentalize the items that I store in the drawers. They pull out very smoothly, as if on roller bearings.

I purchased these to use in a storage room . I stacked them up on top of each other on shelves and use them to store wrapping paper, table cloths, linens, even glassware and dishes that I don't use everyday. They ARE deep, though, so be sure you have the depth. 24"

Great for my home with little storage space. Provides easy access & keep bugs & dirt out.

Fits my shoes perfectly! I recommend adding sticky-backed Velcro to the bottoms if you have hard wood floors, or else the whole container gets pulled out instead of just the drawer.

Love this product. It has solved a major place of disorganization in our business and has systemized & cleaned up a chaotic haphazard approach to handling our equipment.

I really like this drawer. It makes great storage and holds a lot of items. The only thing i would say bad about it that its kind of pricey

Love this product! Have very little storage space in our Cape Cod Home. This accompanied by Bed lifts enabled us to provide a abundance of space to store Shoes underneath our beds.

I made a platform bed for a very small bedroom, and I incorporated three of these drawers into the design. No need for a dresser because these drawers (unlike most) actually use most of the space under the bed and thus provide plenty of storage. They slide easily and are virtually dustproof. And, since my drawers are right under the platform, there's enough room under them to store shoes on the floor beneath the bed. They've made a tiny, tiny room into a practical bedroom!

I love my Underbed Drawer(s).
I am so happy that I bought them. I have been wanting to take my shoes out of the original boxes so that I could see them to make a decision when getting dressed. However, I had now wall space to build or position a shoe rack. Under the bed was the best decision and the Underbed Drawers work perfect. I don't even need to pull the whole container out; just the drawer. I get to see the shoes with an easy pull of the drawer. I bought two drawers and have black shoes in them. I plan to purchase six more drawers and coordinate them by color. What a wonderful way to store my shoes. Now I can purchase more shoes and not feel guilty about where to store them. I Love It!

Great Storage Solution
With living in an apartment with limited space, my dresser drawers have long exceeded their maximum fill line.
In the early stages of spring cleaning I cleaned out under my side of the bed with the intent of putting in some kind of storage drawers to house my less used clothing items.
I purchased 3 of these underbed drawers, placed them side by side, and created a new dresser under my bed. I also taped the tops of them together to assist from separation and sliding when opening and closing the drawers which works great.
These are super sturdy, which was a nice surprise compared to other plastic drawer containers I have been used to seeing. The drawer is completely enclosed in its plastic casing with a clear top to see the contents if needed. The drawers slide in and out with ease as well. Overall, super great buy and worth it!

Great for deep closets too
I love these for my deep closets! The back of deep closets are usually wasted space but these make it easy to access clear to the back without digging for an hour.

Much better than regular underbed boxes. Easier to use and seem to hold more.

perfect for dorm
In my daughter's dorm, two stacks of two drawers fit perfectly under the bed (using the bed risers sold here) and left room alongside for a small suitcase and some other bigger items. The drawers hold sheets, towels, spare shampoo, soap, lotions etc., and other miscellaneous things that need to be stored. It allowed for better organization than just big plastic bins with everything all mixed together as some girls had.

Bought 2 to replace other underbed storage in my daughters room. These work beautiful! They fit great under a standard bed frame. The drawers slide out easily. They seem extremely durable. They currently will be used for "dress up" clothes but can easily be used for anything as my daughter grows up. May seem a little spendy at first but they work so well they are worth the cost!

These underbed drawers are excellent! They are made very well and I love how they slide out from under the bed with ease! Perfect for dorms and bedrooms with little storage room.

great storage solution
My daughter has a tiny bedroom with little storage. We put her twin bed on risers and used 8 of these, stacked 2 high. To keep the drawers from sliding on the wood floor, we put rubber pads on the bottom drawer. They are study drawers and slide easily. We are very happy with them, and I have bought several more for closet storage and under other beds.

Great! A must for college dorms!
I got these for college and they were so helpful. They fit perfectly under the bed and are great for things you need access to frequently but don't have a lot of room to store. For this, they were much better than typical under bed storage boxes because you don't have to unstack them or pull them out from under the bed the get something out of them. A must for college dorms!

Purchased three to go under the bed on one side about 2 years ago. Just purchased another three for the otherside of the bed. No complaints.

Handy under tables and in closets also.
I have these stacked in a couple spots around the house.
In my craft room, I have a closet with a bifold door where two of these are stacked on the floor. You should measure your closet before ordering, but my closet is not a walk-in. It was a standard reach in bedroom closet with a hanging rod before I added shelving. The bi-fold door closes great. I use one drawer for quilt batting and the other for misc electronics. It is where we store our cameras, misc chargers, the phone headset we sometimes use, etc.
I use a folding table as a fabric cutting table. I don't sit at this table, so I wanted a storage solution to use the space underneath. I was able to make three stacks of these drawers between the table legs. Works great! Drawers are much better than bins when you want to retrieve something stored in the bottom container!

Great product. Great way to keep off season items, especially in hot climates.
