Few households aren’t plagued with clutter. It is just something we’ve learned to live with until it gets to the point that we are tripping over our shoes and boxes that line the halls so that we are literally stepping sideways to get from room to room.
If you are like millions of others around the UK who are simply tired of all that clutter, it’s time to get proactive. Have you thought about getting a storage bed to help solve the problem?
- Storage for Seasonal Linens
Most people change their household linens according to seasons. For example, in the winter months you are likely to need warmer quilts and comforters while hot summer nights require nothing more than a top sheet or lightweight cotton blanket. All those seasonal linens no longer need to clog up closets, causing overflow, because you can stow them neatly in storage space built into the bed.
- Toy Storage in the Kids’ Room
How many times have you gone into the kids’ room only to trip over toy trains, dolls and little pieces that only God knows where they go or what toy they belong to? That is a common complaint amongst parents and one which can easily be resolved with under-bed storage drawers and/or shelves. There never seems to be enough room to put that additional toy box, so it makes perfect sense to utilise every bit of floor space efficiently.
You can’t expect the kids to open crates to store toys, but you can teach them to quickly pull out a drawer and throw toys in while hopping into bed. Even little ones learn this habit quickly. And, while you’re at it, you can use one of the drawers for clothes and other items which never seem to find a home anywhere else.
- Books, Magazines and Important Documents
Few of us actually have a bona fide filing cabinet and so all those documents we need to ‘store’ somehow get put on countertops, shelves and anywhere else we can find a spot. That is, if we can find someplace that isn’t already piled to the ceiling and in that case, those papers land just about anywhere but where we can quickly find them.
Books and magazines also add quickly to the clutter. Students often use the excuse that they did their homework but now it’s missing. Under bed storage can put a stop to that right away. If one drawer is allocated to homework, books and other school items, there’s no excuse for “losing your homework.”
You can probably think of infinite ways to use that space if your home is overly cluttered. Why let dust grow under a traditional bed frame if you can choose a bed with storage? This piece of bedroom furniture is ideal and there’s so many different styles to choose from to suit your preferences, for example this range of bedroom furniture and beds by The Place for Homes includes options for all ages and numerous brands, so you can find something that’s within your budget.
One of the side benefits of owning a storage bed is in keeping dust to a minimum as well. Looking for a way to declutter your home and reduce dust balls underneath? Storage beds are the perfect solution!
