Why Don't You Just Sleep On It? (Stylish Storage Beds)

Here's a shocking fact for you, we all have too much stuff. And many of us don't have enough space for it. While we are by no means advocates for a life lived in rooms full of nothing, there is an art to clutter, a difference between a space filled with the things that we love and space that's just a mess. 

You cannot have a well-designed room if you haven't considered where all the stuff is going to go. We can take all the beautiful photographs we want, with all the things shoved into piles out of the frame, but the plain and honest fact is if that stuff doesn't have a place to go once the photo shoot is over, the room is poorly designed. The clients have been duped. 

Don't get us wrong, we constantly coach clients on the beauty of editing, of letting go, of organizing and tidying up, but we also know that these days life comes with Costco-sized packages of toilet paper and 25 pairs of jeans even though we only ever wear two of them. And we want to help you find a place to store all those not-so-nice-to-look-at things so that they are accessible, usable, and yes hidden from sight. 

One solution for a small storage-challenged bedroom? Take your stuff and sleep on it. Enter, the storage bed. They have come a long way from the clunky, boxy rectangles of yore. We've shared a few of our favourites in the picture above. But remember, this is a piece of furniture that will dominate the space. How you decorate and furnish the room around it is of utmost importance. Keeping the space from feeling and looking too crowded and closed-in can be tricky. 

We can help you select a storage bed that works in your room, for your things, and make it all look fabulous. Contact us and let's get started today.
