People love stuff. The eventual gathering of bits and bobs around the house can quickly become a storage issue. Add the luxury extras, such as 25 pairs of high-heeled shoes or an endless stack of old video games, to the necessities like bedding and towels, and you have a lot of things to make room for! If you have children or multiple housemates, this can get difficult to keep tidy.
Without a doubt, one of the most effective methods of saving space in your bedroom is a storage bed. By installing drawers or boxes within the body of a bed, you free up available floor room, add a touch of style, and get back to a tidy, organised boudoir.
Benefits of Beds with Storage
When you shop for a bed, the first thing that comes to mind (other than the price) is comfort. All our beds provide excellent back support and are highly comfortable, so you can put those thoughts to one side for now. The question is, what more can a storage bed add to your life?
Additional Storage Space
Of course, the biggest service by this type of bed is the extra storage they provide. Why struggle to find perfect shelving, drawers, baskets, wardrobes, and whatever else you can think of to keep the place tidy when you could discretely store it within your bed frame.
Anyone who says they never shoved their clothes under the bed is probably not being truthful. Think of storage beds as the acceptable way to clear the floor in a flash and hide your things beneath the bed. The difference is, rather than clothes being subjected to dust and dirt, they can be stored safely in the available space beneath your mattress.
Extra Stability Bed Frames
A bed with built-in storage is sturdier than most floor-standing designs. Larger people may benefit from the support it can add. The structure of the drawers or storage cavern brings another level of durability and stability to a frame. It can help avoid any unfortunate bedroom accidents.
You would not be the first nor last to find yourself having to prepare the house for unexpected visitors arriving within the hour. Short of an on-hand professional cleaning service, this is a daunting task. Fear not- a storage bed is the perfect solution. When short on time, there is nothing better. Depending on the type of bed you have, simply lift the top or fill the drawer with everything you need out of the way.
Types of Storage Beds
Depending on what you want to store, how much of it there is, and how often you need to access it, the best storage bed design changes. You can filter your search for the perfect bed more effectively by understanding the different available options.
An ottoman storage bed is a perfect choice for people who need a lot of extra space. It is one of the most popular storage options for rooms with limited space. The entire inner space is open, meaning you can store larger items easily.
To lift the cover takes minimal effort. An assisted hydraulic lift controls the speed and power as the bed opens up and keeps it there until you are ready to lower it. Many people opt for an ottoman if they want to add space to a small room by removing the need for excess storage.
They tend to be generous in size and are favoured by the big and tall. Sturdy frames and even weight distribution can also help with back problems.
Benefits of an Ottoman Bed
- Large open storage space
- Good back support
- Suitable for big and tall people
- Vary in price to suit every budget
- Available in a range of colours, styles, shapes, and sizes
Bed Frame with Pull-Out Drawers
If you enjoy organisation and like everything to have its place, the storage beds with built-in drawers are the way to go. The range of storage options you have with our customized beds is incomparable, particularly when it comes to drawers.
You can choose to add them to only one side of the bed, hidden at the back, or all around, depending on the look you want. The price range on these beds is inclusive of all budgets, and the design options available can work for every customer.
Benefits of Storage Drawers
- A subtle way to store items
- Allows for organisation
- The size and shape of drawers can be determined by the customer
- Add on one side or both- it’s up to you
A divan bed is somewhere in between the previous two styles. These beds usually have an open space beneath part of the bed, accessible by lifting the top section where the bedding goes. The other side lets you add whatever storage space you want, or it can be left as it is.
Benefits of a Divan Storage Bed
- Versatile range of storage options
- Look the same as ottoman beds

Bed frames can be made to hold customised drawers within the body or make way to a large space beneath the mattress.
There are plenty of classic headboard options available that look perfect at the back of an ottoman or any other storage bed frame. If you choose to add a headboard, there are a few ways to do so. Some bed frames come with this feature already included, in which as you need not look for a further solution. If the frame you want does not have this inclusion, you can shop for one to add to your bed. Some of the most popular modern styles of headboards that work well with storage beds are:
- Headboard with double side-tables
- High-rise fabric board
- Bespoke wooden design

Storage Beds for Kids
Choosing furniture for kids is a little more complicated. When you shop for a child’s bedroom supplies, you have to consider functionality. You could focus on something cute or cool, filter your search by price, or look for your kid’s favourite colours. Storage beds can provide all this, plus efficiency.
If you have children, then you know how important easy clear-up and plenty of storage space are. Stray toys, socks, and clothes can add up and rapidly take over the whole room. Storage beds with drawers are particularly popular for beds for the little ones.
Whatever type of upholstery options you choose, you can have it in the colour you want. Our beds are designed to match all your needs, including keeping your kids happy and off your back!
From kid size to king size, all mattresses need high-quality bed frames to hold them up. Why stop there, though? The space taken up by a bed need not be wasted- not when you have an expertly designed storage bed.
Double your storage and add far more free space to your bedroom. Our under-beds storage options are the perfect solution for removing unwanted clutter and saving valuable space. Lay back and sleep well knowing your room is optimally designed and that your bed is so much more than a place to rest your head.
