20 storage beds to help you get your bedroom organised

Storage bed

Is there a better feeling than lying in bed at the end of the day and sinking between comfy cushions and blankets? Hmm, the only feeling that may compete is when you finish organising your kitchen, bedroom or bathroom and have finally found a place for anything and everything, right?

For me, the bedroom is one of the most difficult rooms to keep organised – there never seems to be enough space for all the clutter I’ve gathered over the years, not to mention the piles of clean laundry that seem never ending. Luckily, storage beds exist and there is a plethora of designs to suit any room size, budget and style. 

From upholstered bed frames and velvet textured ottoman beds that lift up to reveal storage underneath to wooden frames with built-in drawers and shelves, here are twenty storage bed ideas to help you organise your room and keep it tidy once and for all…

Minimalist storage beds

Now, let’s be honest, can you ever have enough storage space? I don’t think so – I’d say the more, the better!

When choosing an ottoman bed, measure your room first to make sure it fits. If you’re looking to create a simple, relaxing bedroom scheme, then a grey or muted pastel shade is a great choice for your bed frame. Go for sleek and fine accessories and minimal bedding to complete the look.
