Storage bed: a space-saving solution that combines design and functionality

The bedroom is one of the most important areas of the house: a space dedicated to rest and relaxation, which must be cozy and comfortable, but also functional. For the sleeping area it is therefore important to choose practical furniture, which fits harmoniously into the environment and allows you to use all the available space. One of the furnishings to choose with particular attention is the bed, because it is the main piece of furniture of the sleeping area and also the one that generally occupies the most space.

If your bedroom is not particularly spacious, or if you want to optimize space, a storage bed can be the ideal solution. Thanks to the lift mechanism and its particular structure allows you to combine aesthetic and functional needs, helping you to make the most of the space and always have pillows, sheets, blankets, duvets, linen or any other object.

Let’s see together all the advantages of using a storage bed and some of the factors you should consider before buying it.

The advantages of storage beds

Storage beds are a simple, practical and versatile solution for different types of environments, both for small bedrooms and for larger environments. The operation is quite intuitive: a particular mechanical system allows you to lift the bed base and mattress, so you can store clothing, linen or bulky items, so you may not have space elsewhere in your home, in the compartment below. The main utility of a storage bed is therefore the possibility of obtaining extra space, but this type of furniture also offers other advantages, such as:

  • functionality and convenience of use: access to the storage space under the mattress is easy, since the bed base can be lifted quickly and effortlessly. Single storage beds can also be particularly useful in the children’s room for storing linen, books, toys or clothes for seasonal use;
  • aesthetic rendering: the storage beds are available in a wide range of designs, colors and styles, so they can be easily placed in different types of environments, both in classic and modern style. Their particular structure allows to give an elegant and essential look to the rooms, giving character to even the most minimal or traditional bedrooms;
  • easy cleaning and hygiene: since container beds do not have separate drawers or cabinets, cleaning is much easier. They allow you to keep the room always tidy and they also simplify the cleaning and sanitizing operations of the bedroom. You do not have to move the bed to clean and, thanks to the lift system, you can sanitize the compartment quickly and easily;
  • strength and durability: container beds are generally designed to be durable and resistant. Before purchasing, make sure that the structure is made of quality materials and that it is robust and durable, thus ensuring a longer good life.

How to choose the most suitable storage bed: all the aspects to consider

To choose the storage bed that best suits your needs and the characteristics of your bedroom you will need to consider several factors, such as the size of the room, the layout of the other furniture and the style you would like to recreate in your sleeping area, but also other important aspects. Among the most important elements to evaluate there are certainly:


  • bed size: make sure you choose a storage bed that is the right size for your bedroom, according to your needs and the space you have available. Measure the room and consider the amount of space available for the bed and access to storage space under the mattress;
  • storage capacity: before choosing your bed, think about how much extra storage you will need. If you have a lot of storage, you may want to consider a storage bed that is particularly spacious or has built-in drawers;
  • bed material: storage beds are available in different materials, such as wood, metal and fabric. Be sure to choose the materials that suits your personal taste and design of your bedroom and other furniture items;
  • comfort of the mattress: to make your bedroom comfortable and cozy you will need to choose the mattress carefully. Make sure you choose a quality model that is comfortable and supports your back well. If you suffer from allergies or particular problems, such as back pain or herniated disc, choose a hypoallergenic or ergonomic mattress, which will help you alleviate or combat these problems and ensure a healthy rest.
