10. South Shore Furniture Summertime Collection Twin Mates Bed
This is an economical choice for someone interested in a Captain’s bed. It is great for children’s rooms or guest rooms. It offers three drawers for storage on one side of the bed frame. It is available in white or natural finish composite material and has a number of add-on features that you can purchase separately, such as a headboard/bookshelf to complete the look.
This Captain’s bed is made from a composite product and is not real wood. While it is economical, it won’t stand the test of time. It requires assembly upon delivery, and the weight of the bed is over 130 pounds, and is only available as a twin sized bed. It might be difficult for some people to move the delivery box around in order to put it together.
9. Sauder Shoal Creek Mates Bed
This Captain’s bed comes in a twin-sized frame and is made from wood and particle board. It features two large drawers in the frame of the bed and would be great for a guest room or a child’s room. It is easy to assemble and can be delivered right to your door.
This bed weighs over 130 pounds, and although it offers two large drawers in the frame of the bed, it does not have add-on options such as a headboard/bookcase to complete the look or provide more storage options.
8. Discovery World Furniture Twin Bookcase Daybed with 3 Drawers and Twin Trundle
This Captain’s bed is made from solid pine and includes a headboard for even more storage. It features 3 large drawers on the frame of the bed and a trundle drawer for an additional mattress. You could also use the trundle as a large storage drawer. There is a cubie door on the side of the bed for more storage options, and it comes in a beautiful espresso color that is very modern.
The added trundle portion makes the bed higher than normal beds. If it is for a child, you might want to invest in a stepping stool to avoid accidents getting in and out of bed. The bed is very heavy at almost 200 pounds at delivery, which could make it difficult to position for assembly. However, assembly is available which would make it easier for an additional cost upon purchase.
7. Coaster Queen Size Bookcase Chest Bed in Brown Finish
This is the first bed in the review that is available in a size larger than a twin. It is available in both queen and king. It is made from composite materials and veneers and has two levels of drawers all around the bed. This offers loads of storage for any bedroom and is available in a modern walnut or black. It does come with the headboard, so you don’t have to purchase that separately, which is nice.
The bed is quite large and high off the ground so it might not be suitable for people who have trouble getting in and out of bed. Although the bed offers lots of storage, in order to take advantage of it, the bed needs to be placed in the middle of a room, so that might be an issue for smaller spaces.
6. Black Captain Twin Bookcase Bed
This Captain’s bed is made from solid wood and is available in a dark finish for a contemporary look. It is higher bed with 3 drawers and a trundle drawer and is available in twin size only. With lots of extra storage and sleeping space, this is a great bed for guest rooms and children’s rooms.
It’s a shame this bed isn’t available in a bigger size because it is such a nice bed. It does come with a headboard with shelves, but that just adds to the overwhelming size of the bed, which some people might not like.
5. Broyhill Kids Marco Island Captain’s Bed with Trundle Bed and Drawers
This bed is available in a number of finishes including white, brown, gray, and light brown. It is made from a combination of solid wood and composite materials and is available in a twin size, full size. It has three drawers and a trundle pullout bed for additional sleeping options.
One major downfall of this Captain’s bed is that it might be shipped in separate boxes so you might not get it all at once. As well, if you are buying this bed for a guest room, and not a child’s room, take note that it is only rated for up to 200 lbs.
4. Discovery World Furniture Twin Bookcase Captains Bed with 3 Drawers and Twin Trundle
This Captain’s bed is made from solid pine and includes a headboard for additional storage. It is available in a light honey color or dark merlot. It is a beautiful bed that features three drawers and a trundle bed as well.
The height of this bed makes it tricky to get in and out of for older people and smaller children. If you plan to use this bed as a guest bed, be sure to keep a stepping stool nearby. It is very heavy weighing in at 150 pounds at delivery.
3. Black Tall Queen Captain’s Platform Storage Bed with 12 Drawers
This queen sized Captain’s bed offers plenty of storage with 12 drawers built all the way around the frame of the bed. It is available in a dark color to accent modern decor and is made from composite wood and plywood.
While this bed is on the higher end of the review list for its modern style and loads of storage, it isn’t made from all wood, which would only have made it much higher on the list. If you are okay with composite materials and need a large bed, this is a great option for plenty of storage.
2. Furniture of America Lemoine Captain Full Bed with Twin Trundle
This captain’s bed comes with a headboard that has 5 shelves, and 3 drawers in the bed frame for lots of storage options. Made from solid wood and composite, it is available in a cherry finish. It also available in either twin or full and both options come with a trundle bed drawer below.
Like many of the other beds in this review, it is not available in larger sizes, which is unfortunate because it is a very nice bed that is well built and features lots of storage.
1. Discovery World Furniture Bookcase Captains Bed
Available in both twin and full, this honey or merlot colored Captain’s bed is made from composite product and solid pine. It has 12 drawers, 6 drawers on either side. It also has a headboard included with more storage.
This bed is a little on the high side, like many other beds in this review, and it is one of the heaviest beds coming in at over 210 lbs upon delivery.
Our pick for the overall winner is the Discovery World Furniture Bookcase Captain’s Bed with 12 drawers. We like it for its solid construction, full-size, and dual-sided drawer system. It’s available in two sizes, which is a nice feature as many Captain’s beds are only available in twin sizes. It’s heavy, but once you set it up, you’ll enjoy it for years to come. Sweet dreams!
