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 to stop snoring.
The CPAP storage problem comes with 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 tend to clutter up nightstands, dressers, and floors.
For many people, CPAP machines are necessary, albeit unsightly. This is why users are seeking solutions that both simplify the use of their CPAP machine while also providing convenient, out of sight storage. 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.
