CPAP machines can be cumbersome, unorganized, and are difficult to store when not in use. Perhaps that's why so many people make the investment, but then give up using their CPAP machine after just a few weeks. CPAP machines, also known as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machines according to the National Institute of Health, use mild air pressure to keep an individual's breathing airways open. CPAP machines are used to treat sleep-related breathing disorders such as sleep apnea and can also help people stop snoring. The problem comes in the design of the machine. Somewhat bulky, a mask and tubing connect to the machine's motor, which blows air through the tube. These machines, when left out, are unsightly, and they tend to clutter up nightstands, dressers, and floors.

This is why users are seeking clever and convenient storage solutions that allow for easy use of their CPAP machine, but also solutions that keep it hidden away. With this in mind, we wanted to introduce you to a clever and innovative CPAP storage idea: the CPAP nightstand!


How to Create a Custom CPAP Nightstand

Furniture companies are embracing the demand for CPAP nightstands. Many of these nightstands have a door on the side which folds down to allow the CPAP hose to come through while the machine remains inside. While an ingenious idea, there's no easy way to provide power to the CPAP unit while it's kept inside a nightstand. When need for power is an afterthought, this often results in the drilling of random and oddly placed holes in your furniture.
