Bed Frames with Storage for Australian homes

Particularly in the bedroom, where clothes and personal effects tend to build up and collect. Storage beds could be bedroom organizing solution for you. These bed frames not only provide a cozy spot to rest but also offer a helping hand in keeping your space organized. With built-in drawers or under-bed compartments, you can effortlessly store bedding, clothing, or seasonal items, bringing a sense of calm and tidiness to your bedroom. Keep your nightstands neat, your closet from overflowing and your dresser from being constantly stuffed. A storage bed optimizes your space and creates a tranquil sanctuary. Embrace the convenience and warmth of a storage bed, where style and functionality combine for a harmonious and clutter-free bedroom.


Can storage beds develop mould?

Yes, storage beds can develop mould if certain conditions are present, especially in high humidity climates. Especially if there is limited air circulation and high moisture. The space underneath the bed, especially with a storage compartment, can trap moisture and restrict air circulation. This creates a favorable environment for mould growth.

Here are ways to prevent mould growth in storage beds:
  • Ensure proper ventilation:
    • Mattress lift: If possible, choose a bed where the mattress lifts up occasionally to allow air circulation underneath.
    • Bedroom ventilation: Maintain good air circulation in the bedroom by opening windows regularly and using exhaust fans in bathrooms.
    • Store only dry items: Only store clean and dry items in the under-bed compartment. Avoid keeping anything damp or wet.
    • Breathable storage: Use breathable containers or fabric bags instead of airtight boxes to allow for some air circulation within the storage area.
    • Regular cleaning: Inspect the storage area regularly for signs of moisture or mould.
  • Wipe down any damp spots with a disinfectant solution to prevent mould growth.
  • You can also use a dehumidifier in the bedroom to control moisture levels, especially in areas with high humidity.

Are bed frames with storage good for feng shui?

While storage beds can be integrated into a good feng shui bedroom, they require careful consideration:

Potential drawbacks of storage beds in feng shui:

  • Clutter: The core principle of feng shui emphasizes energy flow, and clutter acts as a barrier. Using the under-bed space for excessive storage can disrupt this flow.

Here's how to mitigate these drawbacks:

  • Store only essential items: Limit what you keep under the bed. Focus on soft items like seasonal clothes, extra bedding, or empty suitcases. Avoid storing electronics, sharp objects, or anything that might disrupt the feeling of peace and relaxation.
  • Choose the right storage: Opt for breathable containers or drawers to prevent stagnant energy.
  • Prioritize mattress lift: If possible, choose a bed where the mattress lifts up for easy access to storage underneath such as gaslift mechanism, minimizing the visual clutter.

Storage beds can also be beneficial for feng shui in certain situations:

  • Space optimization: In small living spaces, storage beds can be a practical solution to maximize storage without sacrificing floor space.
  • Clean and organized: As long as the storage area is kept clutter-free and only essential items are kept under the bed, it can contribute to a clean and organized bedroom, promoting positive energy flow.

What is a gaslift storage bed?

Gaslift storage beds or also known as hydraulic storage beds are bed frames with storage capabilities by incorporating a lifting mechanism powered by hydraulics to access the storage compartment underneath the mattress base.

Benefits of a gaslift storage beds:

  • Increased storage space: Ideal for small living spaces or bedrooms with limited storage options.
  • Easy to use: The hydraulic mechanism makes lifting the mattress convenient, especially for those with physical limitations.
  • Clean aesthetics: The storage space is hidden beneath the bed, maintaining a clutter-free look in the bedroom.
  • Durability: Hydraulic beds are generally built to withstand regular use and can support a significant amount of weight.

Here are some additional points to consider:

  • Material: Gaslift storage beds are often constructed from sturdy materials like wood or metal to ensure stability and support the lifting mechanism.
  • Mattress compatibility: Most gastlift beds are designed to work with various mattress types. However, it's always recommended to check the manufacturer's specifications for compatibility.

Castlery offers a storage bed with gaslift mechanism that is also low-profile and perfect for organizing clutter and adding space to a bedroom

Should I get a gaslift or divan storage bed?

Choosing between a gaslift and a divan storage bed depends on your priorities and bedroom layout:

Gaslift Bed:

  • Pros:
    • Easy access: The gaslift mechanism allows for effortless lifting of the entire mattress base using pistons, revealing the storage space below.
    • More storage space: Since the entire base lifts up, it typically offers a larger storage compartment compared to divan beds with drawers.
    • Clean aesthetics: The storage area is completely hidden when the bed is in its regular position.
  • Cons:
    • Higher price: Gaslift beds are generally more expensive than divan beds due to the built-in mechanism.
    • Limited access points: You can only access the storage from one side (the foot of the bed in most cases).
    • Mattress compatibility: Some gaslift beds might not be compatible with all mattress types.

Divan Bed:

    • More affordable: Generally less expensive than gaslift beds.
    • Multiple access points: Drawers are typically incorporated on both sides of the bed frame, allowing access from various points.
    • Wider compatibility: Divan beds usually work well with most mattress types.
  • Cons:

    • Less storage space: The storage capacity is limited to the size and depth of the drawers.
    • Lifting the mattress: Moving the mattress to access the drawers might require some effort.
    • Visible storage: The drawers are an external part of the bed frame and might not provide a completely clean aesthetic.
