Under bed drawers are a functional, economical, esthetically pleasing addition to any wood frame waterbed or any other type of bed. The 9" 4-Drawer off set pedestal is the same height as the black shadow pedestal but adds the convenience of under bed storage and the all wood look to the floor. Off set drawers are handy with wall beds or when using nightstands so the pier cabinets or nightstands don't block the drawers from being able to be pulled out. There are 2 drawers on each side with a full length center storage area behind the door at the end of the bed. This could be especially handy for storing skis or guns because the temperature remains relatively constant. Because one size fits king, queen and super single beds, the width of the available center storage area varies with the size of the bed that it is going under. Please note that super single size has little to no center storage because the two sides of the drawer units are squished together to fit under your bed. Drawers can even be conveniently used along a close wall as long as there is close to 12" space between the wall and the bed. Simply stand to the side instead of in front of the drawers when opening and closing.
