Are you looking for a way to transform your bedroom?  Do you dream of a larger, tidier place to rest at the end of a long day?   Before you look for a new house, consider what a smart piece of new furniture can do for your home.

If you’d like to have a neater bedroom, you should be considering a storage bed.  Whether you need a few more places to put your favorite sweaters or you live in a New York City studio with no closet space, a storage bed is a great way to maximize space in your new redesigned bedroom.

Keep reading to fall in love with the idea of a storage bed! 

1. Maximize Space

A storage bed is perfect for extra storage in any space, but especially in one where there is already minimal space.

If you’re living in an apartment or small home, storage beds can give you more space in your home. Instead of having a dresser, the bed can be both your dresser and your bed, all in one! Say hello to more floor space!

Some apartments don’t even have closet space, especially those in bigger cities. By using a bed frame with storage, you won’t have to worry about finding extra places to store all your clothes.  With the right setup, you might not even miss not having a closet!

The traditional heavy looking storage bed isn’t everyone’s cup of tea when it comes to style.  Instead of a heavy thick box which is impossible to vacuum under, we offer a bed with six drawers that has a lightweight look despite its extremely solid construction.  We also offer many platform beds that easily accommodate bins or boxes underneath.  (pro-tip:  Skip the plastic and choose from felt or leather bins, or decorative boxes to maximize style on a budget if drawers are out of your price range!)

2. Pick Up Clutter Fast

Do you ever get frustrated with the piles of clothes that appear out of nowhere in your bedroom? Or what about the stack of mail on your desk?

If you’re trying to reduce clutter, a storage bed is the perfect place to put miscellaneous items that don’t have a home. Even better, if you have company coming over without notice, you can just quickly move the clutter into the storage drawers, so no one knows you had clutter before!

3. Hide Your Dirty Laundry

Would you rather not think about laundry when you don’t need to do it?  If you put your dirty laundry in a hamper in the corner of your room, you’ll always have a subconscious reminder of chores that need doing — in a space that should be dedicated to rest and relaxation!  Of course, you need a place to collect dirty laundry, but you don’t need to make it a focal point.

To make your bedroom feel and look classier, you can choose one of the storage drawers to be the home of your dirty laundry. You can think about it as a built-in laundry hamper.

4. Save Trips to the (Online) Furniture Store

If you’re just moving into a new home or apartment, you’re probably looking for ways to maximize your time setting up your new home. Who doesn’t love to see the finished product?!

Instead of buying a bed and a dresser, buying a storage bed gives you both of those in one!   It’s also a single delivery and a single item to move in the future.   

You’ll find you have more time to decorate your room and your new home by just choosing to buy a storage bed. Say goodbye to extra trips to the store to find all your storage needs!

5. Better for Mattress Stability

When you think of purchasing a storage bed frame, you probably aren’t thinking about the mattress stability you will be getting from it. However, a storage bed offers great mattress stability which will reduce any pressure points or dips in the mattress by offering a stable and even weight distribution.

Because we use closely-spaced solid wood slats in our platform beds, you won’t have to worry about being uncomfortable due to an unsupported mattress. You can avoid back or neck problems that stem from a lack of support in your mattress or bed!   Slatted beds also benefit the mattress longterm by providing airflow underneath, preventing mold and dust buildup.

6. Storage Beds Come in Multiple Designs

If you’re looking for a bed that is high off the ground, a storage bed can give you that. If you’re looking for a bed that looks sleek and stylish in your new space, a storage bed can give you that.

There are endless designs when it comes to storage beds. Whether you’re looking for a bed that has a few drawers for extra storage or a platform bed with clear storage space underneath, there are many options to consider.

Depending on the reason for buying a storage bed, the different designs will give you what you need for your space.

7. Store Your Bedroom Sheets and Pillows

When it comes time to go to bed, where do you put your decorative pillows or the comforter that is too hot to sleep with? Does it just go on your floor in a ball, waiting to get dirty and wrinkly, or do you have a home for it?

With a storage bed, you have a built-in spot for your sheets and pillows when you’re not using them! If you have extra sheet sets as well, they can live under your bed for whenever you want to change the sheets.
