Is Clutter Keeping You Awake?


If clutter in your bedroom is preventing you from relaxing and dropping off to sleep, today’s guest post suggest how an Ottoman bed could help solve the problem: 

Studies have shown that if your bedroom is cluttered or untidy, this can affect your sleep. A room in disarray isn’t calm, which then impacts on you. Mumbo jumbo? Try walking into a tidy, uncluttered room and see how you feel. Then go into your bedroom.  If you notice a difference, it’s time to act.

Hide That Clutter

Few homes ever seem to have enough storage space.  Lofts and cupboards quickly fill up.  As bedrooms aren’t normally on show, they can often become the dumping ground for things that have nowhere else to go: the ironing you haven’t got round to yet (I know something about that); several years’ worth of Gardener’s World magazines, or maybe it’s the children’s toys. Sometimes you can’t even see the bed, let alone any surface or floor. A simple, yet effective way of adding storage space, while at the same time de-cluttering and bringing some sense of serenity back to your sleep nest, is to invest in an ottoman storage bed.

These beds come in a range of sizes and look every bit as stylish as other beds but with a big advantage – hidden storage. These clever beds aren’t just for blankets and linens either. They offer the ideal space for any item that needs tidying away. They have a big advantage over divans with drawers, as they have a greater capacity, plus you can hide away larger items, such as a guitar or ironing board. Access is simple too, as the top of the bed lifts up, so you can see everything at a glance. The better ottoman beds use gas mechanisms, such as those sold by Bedz R Us, to enable the top to lift and go down easily and safely. No muscles required and having a gas mechanism means the top won’t slam down onto fingers.

Ottoman beds are especially useful for children’s rooms. Whether they’re teenagers with textbooks or toddlers with toys, there are never enough places to put things, are there? With one of these beds, the next time you tell them to tidy their room, they might not complain (as much). An added bonus is that if your little one is scared of monsters hiding under the bed, they won’t be able to, with an ottoman bed.

What Is That?

We all know this scenario when looking under the bed: dust bunnies the size of a football; dirty socks that could anaesthetise an army; or antibiotics growing on a month-old sandwich.  With an ottoman storage bed, these will be yesterday’s problems.

A bedroom should always promote sound sleep.  Keeping it tidy and de-cluttered with an ottoman storage bed will go a long way to achieve this.
