Who or what takes up the most space in a bedroom? Finding the space for personal clutter and treasured possessions can be difficult especially if bedrooms aren't that big. People keep so many things in bedrooms and a double storage bed – being so vast – is naturally a great solution. Storage beds come in all sorts of different styles, colours and fabrics and here we have a look at different options.

Types of Storage Bed

There are big beds and small beds, and in both instances there are options available to be able to have under-bed storage. It is possible to keep things under a lightweight frame, but one of the problems with this is keeping everything clean and this is where storage beds have the advantage and can keep things dust-free and off the floor.

Divan beds with storage usually have drawers in the base, they’re available in a range of styles and prices can vary widely. The drawers are spacious and depending on the bed size can have anything from two to four drawers – with either one to two drawers on the sides. In some styles of single bed there is a sliding door on one side ideal for small spaces, or alternatively there is the option for an end drawer at the foot of a double bed which has the added advantage of not being directly below where people get in or out.

The lift-up storage solution such as the Ottoman bed is popular and has mechanisms to make it easy to access the storage area below the mattress many times over, raising it high enough while also keeping all your bed sheets in place. One of the advantages of this style of bed compared to drawers below a double divan bed is that the storage area is kept well hidden and so there is a really large space which is great for bedding and towels.

Styles of Storage Bed

Fashion has moved away from the humble divan bed during recent years in favour of beds with frames. But with new fabrics and colour options, divan beds have been making a comeback with some even having a luxury finish in faux suede or faux leather. With the added storage functionality of some models, today’s divans are both comfortable and stylish; the Silent Night bed range is a good example and certainly worth checking out.

There are various types of divan bed to choose from including open coil models, pocketed divans and memory foam mattresses which are designed to mould themselves to the shape of the body for comfort to get a great night’s sleep. Check out the Rest Assured Beds range too for further style and storage solutions.

The double storage bed is a great addition to any bedroom and certainly the best for storage in terms of efficient use of space. The single storage bed meanwhile has become increasingly popular particularly as a storage solution for children's rooms and definitely worth a look too as they tend to be quite a bit smaller than other bedrooms.

So, if there are any squabbles over who is taking up the most space in the sizeable master bedroom then it might be worth considering the king size divan bed which ought to be the perfect solution for storage and space.
