Why Storage Is Important

Storage is often a key aspect of any bedroom and it seems that all the drawers and wardrobes fill up with clothing almost by themselves! You take your eye away from the empty wardrobe for just a second and *poof* a fully stocked wardrobe with tops and shirts you swear you haven’t seen before. Well a way to ease your current or inevitable storage issues, is to turn your bed into a storage haven! We have put together a handy guide and FAQ on what storage options that are available and what are these options called and how they can have a practical and positive impact on your bedroom and your bed!

Storage Types

Now, beds come with storage in a few ways in this section we will bust the jargon and break the mystery behind the buzz words of the bed industry.


2 Drawers:

Drawers can come in multiple varieties the most common variation is your standard 2 drawer bed. Not even this variation has options, foot-end (end of the bed), head-end (closer to the headboard) and same side drawers. Each of these options offer not just storage options, but; they also allow you fit the bed around the size of the room, freeing up space and increasing comfort!

4 Drawers:

Now if you need not just 2 drawers but 4, you are in luck! The option of having 4 drawers is a very common one as it doubles the storage space that is available in comparison to its 2 drawer counterparts. The items you can store are only limited to what you can imagine, but these drawers are ideal locations for bedding, clothing, pillows, electronics the list goes on and on.

2 Drawer + Continental Drawers:

You are wanting a 4 drawer bed, but you have bedside tables and you don’t want to get rid or move them due to reasons such as room size. Well once again we have you covered, here at Linthorpe Beds we offer the option of 2 drawer + Continental drawers, now I hear you say “What on earth is continental draw?” Well a continental drawer isn’t the size of a continent we can assure you, but it’s actually a smaller draw, designed to fit around bedside tables or fitted furniture.

Ottoman Bases
