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.
For a more relaxed atmosphere, you can find colors from whites, ivories and creams to pastel shades of green, blue and pink. Also look into choosing a fabric that matches other fabric colors in the room. As opposed to the more sedate, "sleepy" soft tones, don’t be afraid to venture onto the "dark side" and choose a darker and heavier fabric for your headboard. Darker fabrics work very well in a larger master bedroom that already is quite dramatic or romantic. Deep blues, magentas and greens can be very effective for getting this effect.
