Twin bed with storage drawers allows you to keep the mess in the room to a minimum without adding furniture. Beds with built-in drawers underneath can hold clothes, blankets or even toys. You can buy a finished bed with drawers at the local furniture store, but be prepared for a heavy price tag. Alternatively, do your own. Even with minimal joinery skills, you can create your own queen-size bed with built-in drawers for a weekend.
