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.
The trick with a double bed is to simplify the entire look of the room (no clutter) and go with a more "reserved" look for the room. Keep the room as clean as possible; otherwise it may look as if the bed is lost at sea with your belongings! Another trick to give your double bed more of a profound appearance in the room is to invest in a good quality headboard. You may also want to consider finding a headboard with rounded edges to further compliment the simplified look.
