Which are the best storage beds?

If you’re looking for a storage bed you’re clearly wanting more storage, so it’s worth thinking about which type would suite you best. Broadly speaking there are ottoman beds, which lift up to give you storage under the mattress, and beds with large drawers in the divan.

No two storage beds are ever the same...

Ottoman storage beds use a mechanism to lift the mattress to around head height giving access to the storage area inside. Ours use powerful gas pistons to easily raise and lower the mattress. The pistons also hold the bed open until you’re ready to close it, which is great if you’re loading or unloading lots of things.

Ottomans are great where space is tight. Ours can open from either the side or end or the whole mattress can lift with the fantastic Alto mechanism.

Beds with drawers for under bed storage are more widely available – and often cheaper. They will give you extra storage, but in reality they’re often not that easy to use and lots of space is wasted. The drawers are large – which is good for space obviously – but the downside is that when full they’re often too heavy to open and close. In fact even when they’re empty they can be awkward because of their size – one side goes in, the other gets stuck and needs jiggling to free it and so it goes on.

It’s not only how easy or otherwise they are to use that separates ottoman beds and those with underneath storage drawers. Ottoman beds have around forty percent more storage then those of a similar size with drawers. Under-bed drawers may look large but they’re often obstructed by part of the bed frame, so can’t actually be filled.

Durability is a question too. Our ottoman beds have been designed to last many years (and come with a full five year warranty – see the Warranty page for details). The mechanisms have been fully tested for daily use plus the storage base is supported on all sides and with a hidden central foot. Conversely, under-bed drawers are rarely strong enough to take the weight so before long the bases sag and collapse.

So, both ottoman beds and divans with drawers will give you extra storage. And I know I’m bias but I truly believe that ottoman style are by far the best. In terms of how accessible the storage is and the amount they hold they can’t be beaten.

One word of caution though. Not all ottoman beds are the same. Like many things in life you get what you pay for. Each one of ours is hand made using the highest quality materials. They’ve been carefully designed too to maximise storage while maintaining comfort. Cheaper versions often don’t offer the same amount of storage (because the storage area is divided), and are rarely supported in the centre so can collapse. Their mechanisms too are often weaker and won’t stand up to daily use.

We love ottoman beds. Over the years we’ve seen so many happy customers and so many bedrooms transformed. What more could we ask for?

I recently had my 4th Furl bed delivered. As with the last 3 - it is absolutely terrific and a great service goes along with a great design. I would recommend Furl to anyone looking for storage bed

Furl provided excellent service from beginning to end - I have a small spare room and really wanted to make the most of the space, as well as having a really good bed for when we have guests. I spent a long time browsing and Furl provided everything I needed. I was very nervous about it fitting in the room as there was literally not even a cm to spare, however I sent pictures and measurements and the delivery team fitted it smoothly. The mattress is really comfortable, and am very pleased with the decision to go with Furl - although the sofa bed wasn't cheap it was exactly what I needed.

Love the bed. Material is lovely. Well built. One little problem - we have a side opening storage bed and the mattress would not lift up if the headboard was fixed in place (something for the designers to think about!); however the men who built it gave us heavy duty clips to mount it on the wall - problem solved for us.

We ordered a Revo table from Furl in November and it arrived just in time for Christmas. David at Furl was able to advise on finishes for the table that might work with our living room, and it fits in perfectly. Great service and delivery.

I went to the showroom to check on the quality of the sofa beds as they are not cheap, but I was impressed when I saw the sofa beds and by David's explanation of the workings and his complete confidence in his product. They looked strong and long lasting and would fit my need of having a sofa bed that would be used every day and after deciding on the colour of the leather I wanted, I ordered my sofa bed. I also had the parts added to make it easier to move about as it's a very solid heavy bed settee. It was delivered around the time David said it would and Paul and his assistant who delivered the sofa bed were incredibly professional and very friendly and were careful when they were working and they even wore shoe protectors while in my house. Paul even offered to take my old settee downstairs for me which I had to decline - but how nice was that? It's obviously still early days but so far the bed is surprisingly comfortable and as a settee it looks brilliant and is comfortable too. There is only one suggestion I would make and that is that the metal sides when being used as a bed need some kind of padding on so they're comfortable to sit on.

I'm so impressed and happy with my recent purchase. I went with the Air bed in a silver-grey velvet, and it looks amazing - especially with the Mondrian headboard. The storage space is far more than you would expect, and the mechanism is very secure and easy to operate. David was very helpful when I visited the showroom. He had so many material samples to choose from - more than the ones listed on the website. And as a real bonus nowadays, the gentlemen who delivered it and put it together were lovely and respectful.

Can not praise this company enough! Approximately 9 years ago (I think they were probably just starting out) I went to their workshop near Nottingham. I was shown how the beds were made, all of the options a available and given fabric samples to take home. We ordered a king size Ottoman bed. At the time I was impressed with the service from ordering to delivery. Fast forward 9 years, we still have the bed, it’s still amazing but we do have one broken bed slat. Today I contacted them and they are popping one in the post for me. Outstanding customer service! Thank you 😊

The sofa is great, I am in love! Both the sofa and the bed are really comfortable. The delivery team were great – very professional and friendly and got the bed put together really efficiently. They were very respectful of my home too.

I am hugely impressed by the bed. Whilst expensive, it is superbly made, looks good, is a joy to ‘manage’ and my guests say they have slept extremely well and would never believe that they were sleeping in a sofa bed. I have only docked the star because they were not as communicative as they might have been in the early stages, knowing I had a deadline. David, who had been most helpful in the shop, emailed his apology for any delay saying he was 'never in the shop'. Perhaps he should spend more time there. Anyway a great product.
