Generally these drawers are two drawers wide and two drawers high. Captain's beds are a perfect idea for the kids rooms. Even the smallest of kids can readily access these drawers. For the littlest ones these drawers are perfect for storing toys and books. As the kids get older and can dress themselves, these drawers are perfect for socks, underwear and sweaters.
