Given all the time we’ve spent shut up in our bedrooms this year, it’s no surprise that loads of us have ended up feeling a bit claustrophobic! With April almost upon us, we’re all getting into spring cleaning; and everyone knows that under the bed is the worst culprit for hidden dust and mess.
It can be tough to figure out how to take on that lockdown induced cabin fever as well as clearing out under your bed, but luckily there’s a quick and easy solution for everyone. Storage beds are a brilliant way to revamp your room, get some extra space, and cut down clutter all at the same time.
So if you’ve been wondering if a bed with storage could be the answer to all of your problems, then stay tuned, because in this blog we’ll be diving into some of our favourite reasons why you should go for a storage bed in your bedroom.
What Types Of Storage Beds Are Out There?
When it comes to storage beds, there are actually a couple of different types, that both come with their own unique pros and cons. Not to worry though, we’re here to break it down for you. Divan beds are the first kind of storage beds and are a simple frame that packs a punch! A Divan Bed Base features a fairly simple, often wooden, frame and comes with nifty drawers that are actually built into the frame itself.

Another brilliantly clever option to get around under bed storage is our ottoman beds, which feature heaps of space that make a huge difference in any bedroom. Ottoman bed frames have clever gas lift hydraulics that let you easily lift up the whole base of the bed to find a handy storage space. You can even choose to lift from the foot of the bed, or from the side.
Both of these storage beds are great for plenty of reasons (that we’re about to dive into!) But it’s totally up to you which one you go for. Our team are always ready to dish out advice, so don’t hesitate to ask for some pointers.
Add Storage, Without Taking Away Square Footage
Of course, one of the biggest draws of beds with storage gives a clue in the name. It feels like there’s never enough space to keep our bits and bobs in, and when you’re working with a fairly small room then it can be even more of a struggle to conjure up some extra room for things like spare duvets, sheets, or even winter clothes.
This is when a bed frame with storage can really come in handy. Of course, having a great-looking bed frame is a top priority for your bedroom, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice extra storage!
An ottoman bed means that you can add lots of storage without taking up much room since your bed is essentially the storage space. Divan beds are absolutely perfect for box rooms, or even converted guest bedrooms that are a little lacking in the space department, and make for a smart way to upgrade your storage.
Get Perfect Designs And Perfectly Practical Extras
Well then I hear you ask, you might have loads of storage, but what about my perfectly curated home decor?! Well, it might sound a bit fantastical, but with our ottoman and divan beds, you can have your cake and eat it too. There are plenty of alluring designs that’ll fit into any bedroom, even if you fancy yourself a connoisseur of interior decorating.

Make Your Cleaning Routine Easier
Now we’re really making these beds seem too good to be true, but just hear us out! As it turns out, going for a storage bed can actually lessen the amount of time you spend hoovering. Most Ottoman or Divan bed frames have a box spring that reaches all the way to the floor. This means that drifting dust bunnies can’t make their way under your bed.
Knock a chore off of your to-do-list
And it’s not just dust, just think, how many times have you found a missing sock tucked away under the bed? Storage beds make a barrier that stops sneaky dirt and travelling socks in their tracks and means you spend less time cleaning under the bed.
With minimalism still in fashion, you can even use your storage bed to tuck away unsightly bits and bobs that clutter up your room and keeps your space from feeling too cramped. This is a real lifesaver for small rooms, or if you’re trying to go for a Marie Kondo aesthetic!
