Why use platform beds with storage?
Platform storage beds not only offer storage in the drawers that they come with, but you can also store products underneath the drawers where the platform rises up. The stress of sleeping in a room which is cluttered can lead a person to keep waking up.
By using storage beds, you will learn to make use of space that could otherwise be wasted as well it helps to keep clutter out of your room so you can sleep easy. No one really will store anything under their bed unless the bed was made for that purpose. Underneath the bed, especially one that doesn’t have a platform in it, dust mites and spiders collect easily. So really nobody wants to make use of that space.
There are two different types of storage beds:
Drawers – this type of storage bed is probably one of the more common ones. The drawers pull out and have a safety lock so that they don’t fall out. You can store your clothes or bed sheets in the drawers. The only thing you would need to make sure with a drawer bed is that you have ample space to open the drawers.
Box storage – box storage beds are great for those who don’t have the space for drawers, but still, need room to store away extra knickknacks in their room. Many people buy box storage beds to store away seasonal clothing. In my opinion, to have a box storage bed, upper body strength is required.
One of the top benefits of having a platform bed with storage is that they can efficiently work in a small room where space doesn’t allow for dressers or armoires. You can also use these beds for guests, as they would need to put away whatever they bring along with them. This would afford them privacy for their belongings.
My mother-in-law uses a storage bed. So far she’s been using it for about seven years now, we’ve moved three times, yet the bed itself is still intact. She’s been storing things in their ever since she bought it. At no time have I ever seen mold, bugs, or any other types of clothing damaging insects which can also cause allergies.
