The Best Types of Storage Beds

You’ve done everything you can to make your bedroom look great. You’ve picked out the perfect bed, added some gorgeous throw pillows and even painted the walls a beautiful colour. But there’s still one thing that’s lacking: storage! That’s where storage beds come in. 

They’re a great way to make the most of your bedroom space and keep all of your stuff organised and easy to access. So whether you’re looking to store items under your bed that might otherwise take up valuable floor space or keep valuables out of sight while still being easily accessible whenever you need them. Read on as we explain what makes them so special, the best types of storage beds and how they can help you get more out of your room.

The Types of Storage Beds

Divan Beds

A divan bed is a type of storage bed where the mattress sits on top of a box spring unit. 

They are a great investment if you have limited space, as they provide additional storage underneath the bed frame. The divan is often made of a material like wood or metal and may be height adjustable depending on the manufacturer.

Divan beds are also very convenient because they offer storage space within the bed itself, so you don’t have to worry about where your belongings will go when you want to use them again. Unlike other bedframes it doesn’t inherently come with a foot or headboard so you may have to buy them separately. 

Ottoman Beds

An ottoman bed is exactly what it sounds like—a bed shaped like an ottoman! Ottoman beds are one of the most versatile and stylish ways to store your things. The mattress tends to lift up and reveal storage space for the entire surface of your bed. 

They’re particularly great for storing seasonal items since they’re easy enough to access when needed, but sturdy enough not to support the weight of someone sleeping and not be moved if someone accidentally bumps into them.

The best part about this option is that they blend the need for storage with style and function and come in a variety of colours and materials. 

Storage Beds with Drawers

Bed frames with drawers are the perfect option for anyone that wants a bed frame that offers more storage space then standard bed frames. These types of beds are typically made out of solid wood, which makes them durable and long lasting. They’re also easy to assemble and come in a wide variety of colours and finishes so you can find one that matches your space perfectly.

Storage Beds with drawers benefit from built in drawers in the frame giving a designated spot for storing clothes, shoes, electronics and more without taking up valuable floor space in shared areas such as bedrooms or bathrooms where everyone needs access all day long whether they are awake or not – particularly brilliant for children.

If you’re looking for a bed that can double as storage, there are a few things to consider: how much room do you have? What do you want to store? How often do you want to access stored items?

Which Storage Bed is Best for Me?

If your bedroom is on the smaller side, a storage bed might be the best choice but you’ll want one that’s a suitable size. The additional room for storage will yield massive benefits in a smaller space but also in a larger bedroom.
