In the red corner we have the well-known bed with drawers and in the blue corner we have the daddy of all storage beds, the ottoman bed. Indeed, the ottoman bed does offer a colossal amount of storage and can offer up to four times the amount of storage as a four-drawer divan. This makes the ottoman bed look like the clear-cut favourite to win the battle of the storage beds. However, as with all battles, nothing is ever as clear cut as it might appear. Indeed, both types of beds have their advantages and disadvantages. To make the best decision, you need to consider all the options before you back the winning bed for you. Let’s unravel the pros and cons of both types of beds so you can decide which is the best type of storage bed for you.
Extra storage – Beds are available with either 2 or 4 drawers. There are few models also available with one big drawer at the end of the bed.
Continental drawers available on most drawer divan beds - Continental drawers are basically mini drawers that allow for the placement of a bedside table.
Available as either a divan bed or a bedstead – Both styles of beds have options that offer storage.
Aesthetically pleasing – Although divan beds with drawers were once considered faux pas in interior design, times have changed. All our beds with drawers are designed to look fabulous as well as being functional.
Easy Access – Drawers in a bed are easily accessible and you don’t have to disturb anyone using the bed to access it.
Economical Option – If you’re on a budget then generally beds with drawers will be cheaper than their ottoman counterparts.
When trying to assess which storage bed is best you really need to carefully consider what your needs are. For example, if you’ve already got a ton of storage then do you really need an ottoman bed? Or whilst an ottoman bed is often more expensive than a bed with drawers, would pushing yourself that extra mile be of benefit for years to come. Remember don’t be guided by trends as only you can decide which storage bed is best suited to your needs.
