It’s often one of the most underutilized spaces in our homes, but it offers a lot of storage possibilities that we don’t think about. I am looking for a storage bed to fit my spare bedroom. Here are some ideas.
Feng Shui is a religion that recommends not having items under your bed. Not everyone has large storage spaces that allow them to store things under the bed. We need to make the most of the space below the bed.
You can slide items underneath a standard bed frame in bags or boxes. However, this is how we have our spare room set up. From the side, you can see the Ikea bags filled with duvets and drills as well as boxes of photos and other junk. We are sorry, but treasured items will not be accepted. It looks quite drab. It’s simple to slip something under it, but then you see how messy it is. Then I have to climb up and clean it all out. Although it looks tidy in the photo, it isn’t always that way.
How can you make sure the bed area is neat?
Under-Bed Drawers and Baskets
There are drawers that can slide under your Storage beds by https://www.hugoandsons.co.uk/. Ikea has a wide selection, but they can be bought from any retailer that sells beds. They can be used with almost any bedframe. However, the drawers can be a bit too shallow to store a large winter duvet.
You might have smaller items under your bed. Why not make them a focal point with cool baskets or boxes?
A divan will be my choice for our small spare bedroom. It is the most compact solution for a small space. You can have a wide range of storage options with divans, including side drawers (either 2 or 4 drawers) or a large drawer at either the end. These drawers are typically deeper than those under a bed frame. However, you will need to make sure that you have sufficient space at each side (you may have to move the side table to get to them) and at the end to store the larger end drawers.
The ottoman divan is my favorite option. To expose a half-length or full length storage space, you can lift the mattress. This bed type allows you to access the storage beneath even if the bed is against a wall. The storage space underneath the bed is larger, and therefore more accommodating for bigger items such as boxes or large duvets.
Storage Bed Frames
You can also get bed frames that have ottoman storage or drawers if you aren’t a fan of divans. We have a storage ottoman frame from Feather and Black in our master bedroom. It’s big enough to hold suitcases, duvets and wheelchair parts, as well as pillows and bedding. You can find out more about our bed frame .
What is the best thing for people with disabilities?
It all depends on each individual.
Although we have an ottoman bed frame that we love, it is too heavy to lift. Mr Wheel Chic Home cannot open the frame fully without assistance. It is a great storage solution, but it can be difficult to lift, so it may not be suitable for all, especially those with back or upper limb problems.
Although storage drawers are easier to use, they can take up more space than they open. If you’re in a wheelchair or have limited space, it might be difficult to open the drawer with your chair.
The drawers are the easiest to use, but that all depends on where you live and your disability.
Consider what you would like to store and how frequently you will need access to it
An ottoman is the best option if you need to store large items such as suitcases, duvets and other bulky items you don’t use often. It can hold so much and everything is neatly hidden away.
Drawers are best if you need storage for clothing, paperwork or small items you use frequently. Drawers are easy to access, and you can even designate a drawer for certain items so that everything is neat and tidy.
You should think about how often you will be accessing your items daily. Keep that in mind.
How big is your room?
Drawers take up space, as I have already said. If you have furniture or a bed that is too close, you may have trouble getting the drawers to open.
Although a divan bed may be smaller, it might not be as comfortable if you have to rely on the frame for support to get in the bed. (As Mr WCH does, he moves his legs from the floor to the frame and then the mattress to the frame).
The thing that interests us most is of course! Which is your preferred style? Are you a Divan Diva or a bed frame?
Traditionally, divans were covered with flowers. This was something that your grandmother had. They are now much more fashionable and available in a variety of colours to suit your style sensibility.
A wooden bedframe might have matching drawers or a metal frame with baskets beneath. It doesn’t matter what style you choose, but it should be able to store the items you need, and how often they will be used.
