All about storage beds
Storage beds make effective use of the bedroom: they give you extra storage space thanks to integrated shelves and bed drawers. Ideal for all those who love functionality. Read here what is important when buying a storage space bed.
What should you look for when buying storage beds?
The name gives it away: A storage bed provides more usable space in the bedroom. At the same time, the solid beds with storage space prove their very own sense of aesthetics. Choose from different storage options to suit your taste.
Beds with classic bed drawers offer additional space below the lying surface. For example, unused blankets and bed linen can be stored there. Additional storage space, for example for books, is found in storage beds with integrated shelves. The shelves are usually integrated into the frame or the headboard of the bed.
The right position is what counts
Important when buying a storage bed is the position of the drawers or shelf units on the bed. In which direction can the bed drawers be opened? Are the shelves located at the foot or headboard? In order to avoid unpleasant surprises, you should therefore consider beforehand how you want to position your bed in the room.
This ensures that you can make good use of your new sleeping place and especially the extra storage space. Not sure how you want to furnish your bedroom? Then our bed Lade made of solid pine is the perfect choice. You can open the two drawers under the lying surface on both sides. This way you remain completely flexible.
Still, don't forget to think the room through. You might want to complete your sleeping landscape with a matching bedside table. Then it makes sense to include a spatial buffer so that the drawers can still be opened. Or you could opt for Plan B: a hanging nightstand, for example bedside table Swebe.
Mattresses need air to breathe
Did you know that we lose a lot of sweat in our sleep - on average about a liter a day? The mattress absorbs a large part of it. That makes it all the more important that the mattress is well ventilated. This is the only way that moisture can escape to the outside, creating a healthy bed climate.
With many storage beds with bed base, ventilation from below is only possible to a limited extent. Logical: where air can normally circulate, the drawers including contents are located. In the Schöneberg model, the drawers are positioned centrally under the bed. This allows enough air to reach the mattress from the front and back - ensuring ventilation. With other storage beds, such as the bed drawer, simply open the drawers now and then.
When choosing a mattress for your storage bed, you should avoid using spring mattresses for reasons of air circulation. Because they require more intensive ventilation than for example a Mattress with cold foam filling. Also a good alternative for a storage bed: The Natural latex mattress Twisp.
Sustainable solid wood storage bedsMore space in the bedroom: A storage bed is versatile and functional. Discover our different models in timeless design - inspired by the Scandinavian style. And as always with ekomia: certified solid wood meets ecological glazes and oils. For a natural sleep feeling.
Bio bed with XXL storage space
The Storage bed Lade is straightforward and characterized by an angular finish. The white organic colour that adorns the high frame and the slanted headboard makes your bedroom look brighter and larger. Under the white finish, the wood image shimmers delicately through - a natural eye-catcher.
The two bed drawers provide plenty of dust-protected storage space. They are located under the lying surface and take up the entire width of the bio bed. As the drawers are mounted on castors, they can be easily moved in and out. Good to know: You can equip the storage bed drawer with any kind of slatted frame.
Ecological design bed with integrated shelves
The floating Design bed Luke is also made of solid pine wood, glazed white and can be used with any slatted frame. In addition to its durability, the storage bed also convinces with its timeless, Scandinavian-inspired design. Several compartments are integrated into the frame of the solid wood bed, providing extra usable space.
At the foot of the bed you will find three compartments for books etc. And the headboard also has a further compartment. Here you can store your smartphone or evening reading. The distance between the bed frame and the floor is 17 cm - perfect for sliding the guest mattress under the storage bed, for example.
Noble storage bed made of wild oak
Our model Schöneberg 3 is a high quality storage bed made of solid wild oak. You can order the floating bed with one or two drawers. The bed drawers run on castors and have bevelled sides. Thus they merge optically into a unit with the frame and are hardly noticeable.
Typical for wild oak is the vivid grain, which is characterised by knotholes and a wide range of colours. Please note that the storage bed Schöneberg is not suitable for all types of slatted frames for constructional reasons: Do not use a rollaway bed frame and instead choose a slatted bed frame with a sprung frame.
Healthy sleep - natural storage beds from ekomia
For us, sustainability is a holistic concept. And especially in the bedroom, natural and pollutant-free materials are important. A good reason to rely on organic furniture.
Ecological wood from certified forestry
For the production of our storage beds we use exclusively FSC-certified wood from sustainable forestry. This means that for every tree that is felled, a new one is planted. Thus the forest ecosystem is preserved - at the same time we can use the renewable raw material wood.
And of course solid wood has another advantage: natural wood is a durable material that can be enjoyed by several generations. So for us, sustainable also means durable.
Simple organic design furniture
Ecological furniture has a durable substance. But durability is not only related to the material. Durable pieces of furniture only follow fast-moving trends to a limited extent. Rather, they are timeless and delight our eyes even years after purchase.
Our storage beds are therefore deliberately minimalist with the simple elegance of Nordic design. They have the potential to last for several years, if not decades.
We are most vulnerable in our sleep. Especially when it comes to things you might not notice at first sight. That is why we use only ecological colours and natural oils from German production in the manufacture of our storage beds.
While the sleeping areas made of wild oak are treated with high-quality oils, the storage beds are made of pine with a glazed finish. The white colour is a classic on the one hand and complies with the toy standard on the other. This means that even the smallest children can sleep in their parents' bed without hesitation.
