Built-in storage above and beside these beds.

Built-in besdside cabinets can add handy storage space, as these two examples show. When remodeling an attic, San Francisco architect Dan Phipps made a small cabinet above the bed (top photograph). It's 8 inches high, 18 inches deep, and 60 inches long. Phipps framed it to match molding in the rest of the room; built-in drawers flank the bed.

Below, Berkeley architect William Coburn built a shallow, multipurpose cabinet into a bedside wall. In a 48-inch-high space, the 24-inch-wide, 10-inch-deep area contains a small top drawer, an open bookshelf, a pull-out shelf, and shelves behind a pair of doors.
