Some of these bed lifts are even adjustable and stackable presenting different height choices for those who demand more options. The lifts come in varying shapes and colors, but must often look like cubes or flower pots that have been turned upside down. One riser is placed under each leg of the bed frame including middle support legs whether it is a caster or glide type foot in order to raise the bed so that it sits level. Surfaces should be notched or recessed to keep the leg or foot more  stable. Most are flexible in design and can even accommodate square or round bed posts.

Plastic totes, suite cases, even boxes are just a few things you can store helping to free up precious closet and drawer space and organizing your living space.
