Using the empty space under a bed is the solution to the problem of wanting invisible storage for those things you need but don’t want to have on display all the time. Here are a few ideas of beds that all have storage built into them.
You can never have too much storage space. In fact, one of the most common people that people complain about when it comes to their own homes is that they own too much stuff and don’t have enough room to store it. In the spirit of having more bedroom storage space, let’s look at one of the spots that usually get cluttered: the under-the-bed clearance. Some bed frames come with no storage room under the bed, some do, and some come with convenient storage drawers: they will be our focus of the day.
Benefits of Bed Storage
Twin beds are usually designed for children and teenage rooms, but also in single-person bedrooms that lack space and couldn’t fit a larger bed. You may be wondering what are benefits of choosing a twin bed with storage instead of a frame that provides a few inches of space underneath, so let’s look at some of the perks you get from buying such a product:
You Get More Closet/Wardrobe Space
This is particularly beneficial for people who have small bedrooms because this usually means that one can’t fit a very large wardrobe in the given space. With those additional drawers under the bed, you can store away some of the clothes that would usually fit in the closet and therefore won’t be in need of a large wardrobe. But these extra drawers under the bed can be used for a variety of other items, like toys (if the Twin bed is placed in a child’s bedroom), shoes, or even bedding items.
It Looks Good
Consider this: if you buy a bed frame that has clearance and begin to randomly store boxes and items underneath the bed, it probably won’t look very good because the clutter will still be visible when you walk into the room. Since the beds we’re looking into today comes with elegant drawers, they will completely conceal whatever it is that you choose to store inside them, which makes them a lot more aesthetically appealing.
It Makes It Easier for You to Clean the Room
When you have a variety of things placed under the bead, you know that you have to take them out one by one and clean the space underneath. This is rarely necessary when you have a bed with storage.
You Won’t Misplace Your Items That Often
And it’s also faster to find the item you’re looking for. For instance, if you have a box that’s hidden somewhere in the middle of the under-the-bed clearance, then you will have to remove all the items that are in the way, one by one. With a sliding drawer, for example, you can pull out all the items at one and get fast access to the item you’re looking for without having to remove everything from under the bed and then putting everything back in its place again.
It Offers More Mattress Support
Because of the design of the frame of a storage bed, you often get more stability and better mattress support compared to what you get from other types of bed frame. You get additional floor support, and this type of frame would work really well with a variety of different mattress constructions.
