More and more people are now opting for storage beds, especially in cities. This is because people live in tiny apartments and a storage bed eliminates the need for a wardrobe or a cupboard at the least. Although beds with storage gives you many advantages it also has its own set of disadvantages, but more often than not the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.
Efficient management of room space
Since your bed is the largest furniture you have in your room having a storage compartment inside of it will give you a huge space to keep your things. So as a result the need for a cupboard, shoe rack and an entire shelf of books will be omitted, this will leave you more space inside your bedroom.
It gives a neater appearance to your home
As having a storage bed reduces the amount of things you keep in your room, it will appear to be neat and less cluttered. You will also have few things to clean during cleaning which will reduce the cleaning time to few minutes. Since it takes less time and can be easily done you can clean regularly which will ultimately make your room so neat and clean.
It provide a barrier to dust
When you put stuff under an ordinary bed they will get dusty as the time pass, because most of us do not clean under our beds regularly as it’s a little difficult. But if you use a storage bed this won’t happen because the storage compartment inside it will keep your stuff as if they were placed in a cupboard as the frame of the bed will act as a barrier for the dust.
It’s difficult to transport
Unlike ordinary beds storage beds cannot be dismantled to pieces most of the time. They are also much larger and heavier. As a result you will face many difficulties to get it into your room or when you try to send it for a repair. Also if you have a curvy staircase to your room things might get worse.
Storage beds are expensive
This is one of the major disadvantages that exist in storage beds. They are much expensive and for the price of one storage bed you will mostly be able to purchase 2 ordinary beds. They are expensive because costs of manufacturing of quality storage beds are quite high.
