Having an extra set of drawers or lift-up storage handy is great help when you’re limited to space, or even if you aren’t. Storage beds can help with that.
No matter how much space you have, storage always becomes a problem, therefore a bed with under-bed storage would be the perfect option. Purchasing a bed with storage allows you to store away all the things that might otherwise clutter your room, resulting in a clean and clutter-free bedroom. There are a lot of things to consider when purchasing a storage bed, so we will discuss below how to find the best storage bed for you.
What to Look for in a Storage Bed?
Knowing what features to look for in a storage bed may make the purchasing experience less overwhelming, especially with so many variations available. We’ll go further into storage capacity, materials, and other crucial considerations before making that all important purchase.
In the past, storage beds were mainly beds with drawers on either side of the bed. You could customise the drawer options to have as many as 4 on one single bed. The drawback to this is you don’t have access to the complete space all at once. It would require you to open and close the drawers several times when you just can’t find something.
Say hello to the modern storage beds! Gas-lifting pistons are used on either side of the bed much like a car-boot giving access to a depth of space that is extremely easy to use and lift. You now have access to everything stored beneath your bed without having to open and close the drawers a million times. The mattress is lifted away from the base with the assisting pistons to make the process so smooth and easy!
This type of storage is ideal for storing out-of-season clothing, bed linens, and other objects that need to be hidden and out of sight. Gone are the days where you couldn’t find any space.
The bed’s look and lifespan are both influenced by the materials used during the manufacturing process. Particle board is used in many storage beds because it is inexpensive and lightweight, making it easier to transport and ship. A solid wood storage bed on the other hand, is built using solid hardwood, provides better support whilst sleeping and definitely lasts a lot longer. It is important to check the specifications of the storage bed you are interested in to ensure you get the best for your money.
Storage beds are available in conventional sizes to fit most popular mattress sizes. The number of sleepers, budget, and available space will determine which size is best for you.
Choosing the best storage bed for your needs based on size
There are numerous types of storage beds to choose from, so think about what would best fit your needs. Storage beds come in a variety of styles and sizes. On the basis of size, the features of a storage bed are discussed below.
- Single bed with Storage
A teen’s fantasy. A comfortable bed with plenty of storage space for everything from t-shirts to hobbies and, of course, dirty laundry. Everything is contained in a tiny space and is within easy reach. The storage is easy to access and large enough to accommodate toys, clothing, and other items that teens frequently “store” on the floor.
- Double bed with Storage
Double storage beds provide more storage capacity than single storage beds, and the storage facility is accessible from either the footboard, left or right-hand side.. A bed is so much more than simply a place to rest your head. It may be used as a storage area, a place to relax, or something that makes a great design statement in your bedroom. The Hugo & Sons ottoman storage double bed combines modern design with efficient storage, making it ideal for modern homes. The perfect contemporary accent to any bedroom.
- King size bed with Storage
King size storage beds provide homes with enormous space and a very stylish appeal. The 5ft king size bed surely is what the name suggests, a bed for a king! With a 5ft width bed there is more than enough room to share, and the storage just gets bigger. You will never have to worry about space ever again.
- Super king size bed with storage
A super king size bed is excellent for couples who really want the extra room, and it is the equal of each person sleeping on their own single sized bed (pushed together); the super king bed provides each person 3ft each, making it perfect for larger master bedrooms. A super king-size bed with storage is big enough to store almost all blankets, towels, suitcases, clothing, bedding and anything else you can think of.
The major advantage of a storage bed frame is that it provides you with lots of extra space to store all of your valuable items while also keeping them secure and dust-free. This also means extra space in the room and a place to conveniently put stuff when visitors arrive. The gas-lifted bed frames really makes accessibility a breeze and with all that extra space your room will be looking a lot more fresher and cleaner. With the sizes of houses smaller than ever before, if you have the budget for it, we would highly recommend a bed with storage.
