Storage beds are a fantastic way to expand the amount of space in your room. Gone are the days where you needed to store everything in cupboards, sideboards and whatnot as Storage beds maximize the space available in your room. Hidden compartments, gas lifts and more offer ways to increase the amount of storage while decreasing the amount of clutter giving a sophisticated and clean feel to any room. The different types of storage vary with everything from 2-drawer storage through to ottomans and more with everything from adult sizes and colors but also childrens beds being available.
Types of storage beds
Since storage beds are available in many different styles, it’s only natural that they will come in a range of materials too. My personal favorite is the velvet fabric ottomans which offer a level of prestige with texture that you just want to rub against all day. You will find something for everyone with many different types of storage bed. We have listed the following beds available below:
- Ottoman storage beds
- Divan beds
- TV storage beds
- Storage beds for kids
- Cabin beds
- Mid sleepers
- High sleepers
How do storage beds get you more space?
The way it works is actually quite simple. Your mattress is always elevated off the ground and housed typically on a flat base or slats, a storage bed simply elevates this a little bit higher and builds out numerous storage options in the empty space beneath the bed. This space would otherwise go to waste or be cluttered and an eyesore with bits sticking out and being visible. Instead, the ottoman, drawer and storage beds all have different levels of storage built right into the unit.
Storage bed sizes
The beauty of storage beds is that there isn’t really a hard-limit. You might struggle to find certain sizes of storage bed, for example, high sleepers and mid sleepers are both quite rare to find in double and above, same too for kids storage beds where a single is more traditionally recommended for maximizing floor space. However, you get single, double, king and super king storage beds in ottoman, divan and tv beds with extreme frequency, often found alongside their single and small double counterparts.
