That space under your bed is about to get a major upgrade.

Is the space under your bed filled with nothing but dust bunnies and rogue socks? It's time to change that, bb. If you don't feel like investing in a bed with storage, then underbed storage containers are the perfect way to make the most of your space...especially when you're in a tiny apartment with one closet and zero room to store your shoe collection. And if you wanna avoid scratching up your floors and straining your back, then underbed storage with wheels is the way to go. Here's a sneak peek at our favorite rolling storage organizers.

Whether you're looking for something cheap and simple or cute and fancy, we've got options in every style and size and for every budget. Ahead, all the best options for underbed storage with wheels, plus everything you should keep in mind before buying yourself a storage container.

Dimensions: 35.625" W x 18.25" D x 6.5" H

If you're not looking for anything too fancy, then this roomy storage container from The Container Store is the perfect way to get the job done. It's made with super-durable polypropylene, features an easy-open lid, and is equipped with lil wheels to let ya roll it out from under your bed with ease.

THE REVIEWS: One tester says, "I have been buying the clear jumbo storage boxes for over 10 years. Gotta tell you, not one has broken yet. Contents can be seen without a problem, boxes are sturdy [and] resistant to temperature variation and humidity of the attic or the basement, and [they're] functional enough to keep in your bedroom closet or under the bed."

Dimensions: 27" W x 24.5" D x 6.25" H

For something a lil cuter, try this set of two rolling storage containers, which have pretty linen exteriors and sturdy metal support frames. Reviewers love this set for its easy-pull handle, detachable middle divider, see-through top zip cover, and 360-degree caster wheels—plus its ample storage space.

THE REVIEWS: "These containers were the perfect color and size for the narrow space under the twin-size day bed," one review reads. "Four of them were perfect to fill up all the space under the bed, and they blend in with the style of the bed and the decor of the room."

Dimensions: 24" W x 16" D x 6.5" H

Another great set of two, these underbed storage carts are made with metal framework wire, so they're far more durable than your typical under-the-bed storage unit. These bbs also feature 360-degree rotating wheels, removable plastic liner bags with zippers for additional protection, and a foldable design for when it's not in use.

THE REVIEWS: According to one reviewer, "The wire baskets are strong enough to hold a lot of weight. The casters make them easy to move around even when they are loaded. The bags fit into the baskets perfectly. They have a clear plastic top so you can see what is in them. And they can be used on their own. I highly recommend these."

Dimensions: 25.625" W x 27.5" D x 7.125" H

For $30, this wooden storage box from IKEA is *such* a steal—especially considering how big it is. You'll love the easy-roll castors on the base, the removable snap-on textile lid for protecting your stuff, and the fact that it can store a ridiculous amount of clothes, shoes, and linens.

THE REVIEWS: "Perfect underbed storage," one tester writes. "They are fairly simple to assemble, the wheels make them easy to move (in a straight line) and the snap cover will keep the contents in."

Dimensions: 26" W x 15" D x 5.9" H

Don't wanna spend a lot of $$$ on an underbed storage container? Then get this rolling bin from Better Homes & Gardens, which features a good amount of space for a very good price. It's got a clear top with a zipper closure, two side handles for easy removal, and it comes fully assembled, which is always a bonus.

THE REVIEWS: "I absolutely love this!" reads one review. "The measurements are spot on and this is very compact...The wheels make it so easily accessible, since I do get into it occasionally. I would suggest purchasing more than one because you will be obsessed. It's sturdy and good quality."

Dimensions: 32.91" W x 19.68" D x 5.83" H

For those looking to utilize as much under-the-bed space as possible, this stylish wooden drawer is calling your name. With tons of storage space, easy-roll casters, a handy divider for organization, and a solid wood design, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more ~aesthetic~ underbed storage option.

THE REVIEWS: "Easy assembly and nice option for underbed storage when a low height is needed," says one tester. "These are far less than 7 inches high when fully assembled, and that is tough to find. I think these will be a great and sturdy option."

Dimensions: 49" W x 25" D x 3" H

A rolling underbed stage is a fab way to keep your shoe collection organized and out of sight, and this handmade option can't be beat. Ya, it's pricey, but it's also massive, with a super-low clearance, several different style options, and q-u-a-l-i-t-y materials.

THE REVIEWS: "SawMaw has the BEST customer service of any vendor I have ever encountered!" writes one reviewer. "I had issues with the shipping/receiving and she got right on it and replaced it ASAP. I cannot say enough about the product nor the owner."

Dimensions: 31" W x 18.25" D x 8.5" H

Hi, what could be chicer than an old-fashioned, under-the-bed steamer trunk?? This solid wood option can handle up to 200 pounds (!!) of stuff, and while it's a lil heavy, the wheels and handles make it easy for you to slide it out when ya need it. Plus, you can even lock it for extra security!

THE REVIEWS: "Sturdy," reads one review. "Wheels roll nice. Must remember that it's 20-something pounds alone, so if you pack it, plan to only roll it, unless you're really strong and have no issue lifting it. It's good-sized. I would undoubtedly recommend."

Underbed storage units can save you *SO* much space—but they can also fail to protect the clothes and linens you store inside if you don't make a quality investment. A few things to keep in mind while ya shop:

First things first: If your bed is super low to the ground, then chances are that underbed storage isn't for you. However! If you do have a bed frame that offers space beneath it, then be sure to measure how much clearance room you have and make sure it's greater than the height of the storage container you buy.

Before buying a storage organizer, you'll also wanna think about what you plan on storing inside of it. In addition to providing dimensions, most underbed storage units will provide a weight capacity, and if you're planning on storing bulky or heavy-duty items, then you should know that plastic or fabric containers may not cut it.

While not *totally* necessary, other useful features for rolling storage containers include wheels that rotate 360 degrees, handles for easy removal from under your bed, and covers to protect from dust and damage. Having see-through underbed storage is also pretty useful, especially if you have several containers and don't feel like digging through them all to find one particular sweater.
