Pros and Cons of Beds With Storage

Pros and Cons of Beds With Storage

When creating a haven of tranquillity in your bedroom, it helps to adopt a minimalist approach. By choosing clever and suitable storage solutions, you can store your belongings safely and still be able to access them when needed.

The storage that you choose will be dependent on the size and layout of your bedroom. One option is to choose a bed with storage, whether it's beds with storage drawers underneath or an ottoman bed where the storage space is accessed by lifting the mattress.

What Are the Benefits of Storage Beds?

As with any new purchase, it is worth looking at the pros and cons to determine if it is the right style for your needs:


  • It will help keep your bedroom tidy and maximise the space available.
  • Adds to the overall design of the room, giving a clean and elegant finish.
  • Reduced clutter means reduced dust, making the room easier to keep clean.


  • Storage beds can be heavy and bulky to move, particularly when full of belongings, making it harder to move around when cleaning or redesigning the room's layout.
  • As it is a solid structure, as opposed to a bed with a slatted base that can be disassembled entirely, it may be difficult to manoeuvre into the bedroom depending on your property's size, the width of doorways, etc.

Some would say that the pros outweigh the cons, but it is very much dependent on your circumstances.
