    Depends how much you want to raise the bed. My mother had plastic bed risers under her bed to raise it up but after a couple years if someone sat right on the bed over the bed riser it would break through the plastic. A neighbor had just made a screen porch for his trailer and had wood left over. He cut 4 square blocks about 6 inches high to go under bed legs, make sure you centre leg on block as it shifts a bit when you place leg on block. Works great and a lot sturdier.

    An easy solution is to purchase bed risers and find boxes that fit under your bed to create more storage. We also love this $2 fix:
