Storage furniture is essential for most households. In fact, in many homes, their storage is limited to the attic or perhaps one or two closets built into the property. Many do not have built-in storage space, so buying furniture with storage space is essential. Especially for those who have small apartments or even live in one room.
Fortunately, furniture manufacturers are also aware of this. There is a good selection of furniture that offers storage space, and we are not just talking about wall cabinets and chambers with cabinets under them. Here are some examples of furniture that contains storage space of various types.
Your bedroom offers the best random storage options. Neither sofas nor beds have been designed as storage furniture, but each has this capability if you use it.
The wardrobe can be used for a number of items, including hanging clothes and suits. This is useful if you do not have a wardrobe, although a good alternative would be to run the hanging rail from the wall side to the wood panel or even from the wall to the cabinet side. The closet itself could then be equipped to store folded clothes.
Chests and chests of drawers
Chests of drawers and chests of drawers are classic items of bedroom furniture. In principle, the chest of drawers is no more than a low chest with a mirror on top. Each is suitable for regular storage of things in the bedroom and clothes, although it pays to ensure that you have at least one deep drawer. You never know when you’ll have a bulky item out of sight.
Bed linen storage: Osmani
It seems like a wasted opportunity to buy an ottoman that doesn’t have a hinged lid with a storage box under it. Sofa beds are very practical for blankets, sheets, duvets, and similar parts of bed linen. The beauty of an ottoman is that it takes up little space and you can have two or three in your bedroom.
You can use them to sit while dressing up: pulling on stockings, tights, or tying shoelaces. Why not buy an ottoman for a chest of drawers than a chair? Then you get multiple uses of the seat and storage space.
Storage space under the bed
Many beds have plenty of RV storage space under them. Some beds rest on frames that are quite high above the ground. In fact, many are specially designed to allow storage under the bed. A popular form is storage boxes stored on rolls that can be rolled up under the bed.
Another form uses the space available in the relatively empty frame on which your mattress lies. Modern mattresses do not require any additional suspension, only firm support. In general, they can rest on solid wood or a slatted frame. This frame can be quite high from the floor, as few people like to lie close to the floor. It’s harder to get into and out of bed.
The best height allows you to sit on the bed and raise your legs to lie on it. The space under it can be used to place drawers. The most efficient way is to have two drawers opening on one side of the single bed and two pairs for double beds and more – a set on both sides of the bed. Some have drawers that open from under the footrest, but this is not always the best use of space.
General storage furniture
If you live in a small apartment, you can use storage furniture, which combines many functions of ordinary furniture in the living room and dining room. One option is a table built with storage cabinets in the middle, while still providing enough legroom. Sofas and chairs are available with storage space under the seat. The comfortable cushioned pillow sits on a solid base, under which there are two drawers for the sofa – one for the chair.
Instead of footstools or coffee tables, you can use sofa beds or coffee cups. Maybe not as good looking, but maybe better than a package of linen or curtains lying in the corner of the room
