What Is A Storage Bed?
A storage bed is a type of bed which utilises hidden compartments. These compartments can take the form of drawers or of larger underbed storage which is revealed by lifting mechanisms. Perfect for keeping bedding and pillows, or kids toys, out of sight, beds with storage are widely heralded as effective ways to manage mess. They can also be used to house seasonal items or any other everyday clutter as you see fit.
What Are The Benefits Of Beds With Storage?
Value for money is one of the main benefits of a storage bed. Featuring all the plus points of a high quality bed frame with the added benefit of hidden underbed storage, those with smaller spaces can save on the costs of additional bedroom furniture. A real 2‐in‐1 option, storage beds maximise floor space as well as your budget.
As well as offering a space‐saving functionality, beds with storage can also help you relax. Above all else, a bedroom is a place to unwind and put your feet up and keeping it neat and tidy is essential to promoting a calming ambience. A decluttered space is the perfect recipe for fully rested sleep, working wonders for the mind and body in equal measures.

Types Of Storage Bed
There are two main types of storage bed available – ottomans and divans. While both bed frames utilise underbed storage, the primary difference between the two lies in the method of accessing the hidden compartments.
Ottoman storage beds feature a lifting mechanism powered by gas struts. This allows the mattress to completely raise from the foot or side of the bed, revealing comprehensive underbed storage which makes the most out of this space. Ottoman bed frames are ideal for the narrowest of bedrooms due to lack of opening drawers.
Divan beds, on the other hand, have drawers underneath the bed. These drawers are deep and can hold plenty of clutter. Choose between two drawer divans, four drawer variations or a continental divan, which features varying drawer sizes.
Are Storage Beds Affordable?
Storage beds are inherently a value option due to their dual‐purpose design. Comprising of divans and ottomans at low prices, our entire range has been hand picked to appeal to all budgets.
Do Storage Beds Come With Mattresses?
Our storage beds are available for purchase as the base only or with a mattress included. A full storage bed and mattress set enhances the value even further, removing the need to go shopping around for a mattress.
As divans and ottomans are designed with the exact width of their respective mattresses, we provide a complete range of sizes to ensure you receive the complete set. Whichever type of mattress you prefer, you can find the ideal sleeping and storage solution for you all in one place.
