When Function Meets Style: Choosing the Perfect Storage Bed

By Jonathan 21 October 2020


In 2017, there were around 1,500 self-storage sites across the UK. And 27% of those who use them say it's because they've run out of space at home.

If you're one of these people, don't resort to self-storage units just yet. This option can be costly in the long-run, plus you're far away from your possessions.

Instead, you should maximise on space with a storage bed! In this article, we'll show you what storage beds are available so you can choose the perfect one for your needs.

Ottoman Storage Bed

An ottoman storage bed works just like a regular ottoman stool does. But instead of a cushion on top, there are solid wooden slats with your bed on top. While you can get a headboard with this bed, no headboard is an option as well for those who want simplicity.

You swing open the hinged slatted mattress base to reveal plenty of storage underneath. And when you're done putting in or taking things out, simply lower the base down and everything is nice and hidden. This is ideal if you don't want visitors to know that your bed doubles as storage space.

Platform Bed

The platform bed elevates your mattress far off the ground. This allows you to get plenty of storage space underneath. You can either have wooden drawers made to match your wooden bed or purchase plastic boxes to put below.

We also have a platform storage bed that has a solid frame to the floor if you want less exposed space.

The platform bed is good for larger beds, such as a double or king. This type of storage bed with drawers can add just the modern touch you need to your bedroom.

Four Poster Bed

Do you prefer to have a storage bed frame that's quite impressive? Then you should consider the four poster bed.

It's similar to the platform bed since you can have storage underneath. Again, you can choose between custom wooden drawers or you can purchase your own plastic boxes.

But what makes this bed spectacular are its four posts that look simple yet make a bold statement. This type of bed can also add a modern touch to your bedroom.

You can keep it simple by leaving it the way it is or you can add some drapes and curtains for a more personal and softer touch.

We touched upon storage boxes above, so you might be curious about what's available for you.
