Another option is a twin captain's bed with a bookcase and headboard integrated with the bed structure. If you are not very keen on bookcases, the twin bed can have built-in storage spaces in the form of drawers on the underside all along the length of the bed.

Modus Atria Panel Bed in Natural Sheesham
- Shopper in
We bought this bed for the master bedroom in our newly built, very modern and eclectically decorated house by a lake. It was the
first time we ever bought furniture online, therefore a great deal of turmoil and debate and doubt went into this transaction! But the bed is absolutely gorgeous, a feature piece in the room. It is, however, darker and "redder" than the photo, quite considerably so. I still love it, but our whole concept for the rest of the room changed after we saw the real colour. The variation in the grain and colour is beautiful and it's a very sturdy, solid wood piece. Easy to put together - one of the supports did snap during assemble, but it did not affect the bed overall. There were problems with the order and some initial difficulties dealing with Cymax customer service, however after the supervisor stepped in at our request, everything continued smoothly and we eventually received exactly what we had ordered. Overall, very happy with this purchase.

Hillsdale Edgewood Bed

My husband and I purchased this bed for our bedroom. It is very attractive though perhaps not as sturdy as we had expected. It
is somewhat darker than it appeared online but looks very nice in our room. The price is unbeatable for a full bed (that is, one with both a head and foot board). I would purchase from Cymax again.
