Captain's beds were influenced by the beds used on board ships. Obviously, on ships space is limited and a built-in space-saving bed is the best options.
But where does the captain's bed stand in today's home? The answer is in almost any home where maximizing space is a priority. You can have a full size captain bed with plenty of storage space with large drawers mounted on full-extension metal slides.
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.
The versatility of captain beds is not limited to adults alone. These are now gaining popularity in children’s room more than ever before. Families in both large suburban homes or in small urban apartments need space-saving ideas for their kids’ bedrooms. A captain's bed is the best choice because it can have a bookcase or a drawer to keep toys or schoolbooks. A great thing about kid’s captain bed is the availability of décor and styles to blend with the children’s room.
