Did you know that people refer to a platform bed as a captain’s bed or a friend’s bed? This terminology came from the fact that most boats and ships do not have much space for a storage space and a bed. The mixture of storage and bed would make it easier to live and sleep close by. In the modern style of college dormitory, shared bedrooms and studios, the dual function of storage with platform beds is definitely an important factor.
Storage beds are available in standard sizes. They include single bed frames or twin, king, queen and double or full. The available storage space depends mainly on the dimensions of the frame. For example, a single bed usually contains 2 to 3 storage boxes. However, a king-size bed can accommodate 3 or more drawers on each side.
Twin rooms or single beds are an ideal solution for single, dormitories or children’s rooms. The beds are available in different designs that include the number of drawers you will find underneath and the volume of shelves included. The surface and color of a platform bed can vary depending on the type of wood used and the selected stain. A white colored platform bed with storage is the perfect choice for a child’s bedroom, as the color can be easily harmonized with many other elements or even a specific theme.
A standard single storage bed usually contains 3 drawers underneath that can be modified during installation based on which side you want to face the drawers. Some children’s platform bed frames also have a shelf unit to hold toys, books and other dots. You can find children, single or dual platform frames that are in storage in many places offline and online. The online world is an excellent starting point for searching for the styles and types that exist.
A double bed is the second name for a full-size storage bed. The size is a great solution for an extra bedroom, college dorm or teen bedroom. The dimensions of the bed can normally have two drawers on both sides for storage. Some can only have a large box on both sides. Double and full sizes are usually not as popular as king, queen and twin but they are readily available online.
