Learn about Dorm Bed Risers before purchasing...

We all know space is at a premium when you live in a small dorm room so make the most of your dorm space by using dorm bed risers, commonly referred to as dorm bed raisers, to create an entire under bed storage solution for your dorm stuff. Just remember when making your purchase, that all dorm bed risers are not created equally. When selecting your dorm bed risers, make sure that the opening, not just the exterior, is squared inside and can accept larger bed posts (i.e. 2.75 inches x 2.75 inches). In addition, make sure they are engineered to hold your weight as well as the weight of your study buddies (i.e. approximately 1200lb total capacity).

If you really want to maximize your dorm space, consider combining your dorm bed risers with decorative storage bins and a rolling Smart Storage Cart to maximize your under bed dorm space and make your dorm decor rock! You will be amazed at the amount of dorm stuff you can store right under your dorm bed.

The right Dorm Bed Risers provide:
  1. Storage: An economical storage solution for your dorm room, creating a new under bed storage space in minutes.
  2. Height: Dorm Bed Risers can elevate your dorm bed by approximately 6 inches or more.
  3. Decor: Combined with decorative dorm storage bins and a rolling Smart Storage Cart, your dorm bed risers create the perfect under bed storage solution while enhancing your dorm decor!
  4. Strength: A pyramid design will keep your dorm bed steady. A set of properly engineered dorm bed risers (4) can hold approximately 1200 lbs! 
The space gained by using Dorm Bed Risers (approximate):

• Twin Bed (39" x 75") - 10 cubic feet of additional under bed storage space.
• Twin XL Bed (39" x 80") - 11 cubic feet of additional under bed storage space.

Note: Only use Dorm Bed Risers with either stationary or lock-wheel bed frames.
