What to consider when choosing a storage bed
When it comes to storage beds, there is more to consider than whether you opt for a divan or ottoman bed. You’ll also want to take some time to consider what size storage bed will work best in your sleep space, as well as the style and cost of the frame.
Usually, measuring your room for a bed frame is quite simple. However, when measuring for a storage bed, it is important to take into account what type of storage bed you’ll be purchasing. Especially with a divan, as you will need to account for the extra space needed for opening the drawers.
If you have a smaller bedroom, perhaps an ottoman would be more convenient. Similarly, if you have a lot of bedroom furniture, an ottoman may mean you can access your belongings more easily.
What size of bed you opt for isn’t just about the dimensions of the room, but also of the person. If you’re looking for a storage bed for a child or teenager, perhaps a single bed would be ideal. If you’re sharing a bed with a sleeping partner, you may appreciate a bit more space, opting for a king-size over a standard double.
Whichever size bed you opt for, make sure to not only measure the room but to consider the logistics of getting the bed delivered. Ensure you have an entryway large enough to have the bed placed in the intended room.
When selecting a storage bed, style does not have to be compromised. There are many stylish storage beds available that vary in material, colour, pattern and texture. Our diverse range of storage beds means you can shop for practicality as well as a preference for the taste and style of your room.
If you’re unsure what to opt for or you’re thinking of redecorating in the years to come, selecting a neutral and simple bedframe will allow you to keep it for years to come, no matter the style of the room.
The cost of storage beds very much depends on what type of storage bed you opt for, the material it is made from and of course, the size of bed you order. When evaluating cost, it is also good to factor in any additional costs such as delivery or set up. Bear in mind that divans are generally cheaper than ottomans, so for those on a budget, divans are the best way to go.
