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.

South Shore Furniture Shiloh Twin Mates Bed in Natural Maple Wood
- Shopper in
Saratoga Springs, NY
Bought this for my 3 year old son as a transition from his toddler bed. He will be tall like dad, so this is a good step until h
is next bed. Right now I like how low it is to the ground, yet still a "big boy bed" in his eyes[...]and EASY directions (as long as you organize all of your parts/pieces first!).The bottom of the drawers are made with a thin particle board, but luckily they are reinforced with brackets and nails. I also added some wood glue. (w/ this price you can't complain!)There is extra space (under the mattress) on the side which doesn't have drawers, which I didn't expect to be useful. But I think it will be a decent place for random storage (& it's relatively easy access under a little twin mattress).The bed is of decent contruction. We'll keep it for guests or move it to our camp, after our son grows out of it.I highly recommend it!!!
