More ideas from Alexia
You know I always really actually liked having my mattress on the floor but felt kind of ghetto about it. This might be a nice happy medium.

This would be cool but to save space I'd like the storage/platform to come out from the foot of the bed rather than the side. {DIY platform bed- great way to save space in a small place. could even put bedframe on top of platform}

Just off the floor like mine
