The best part of these beds, however, are the many storage solutions they offer. Nearly any divan bed is available with drawers or cabinets built into the bed base. This is the perfect way to maximize storage space while keeping the rest of the room clutter free. Whether you want to stow your linens and towels, the kid’s clothes or seasonal items, divan bed drawers will give you all the room you need. And because they are built into the bed base, you don’t sacrifice the look of your furniture.
Over the years I’ve spoken with a number of people about the need for a smaller than twin size bed. Often these individuals are trying to find something that can work for a cabin, for a small room or a tight space where typical beds just don’t seem to fit. Another need I’ve heard is to try and maximize the number of beds that can be placed into one room. The solution would be a bed size less wide than a standard twin but would have the same length and we refer to this in the industry as a cot size.
