Whatever clutters your bedroom, from random wires to all-important paperwork, is a problem no more. Why? Well, because these incredibly space-savvy headboards come with added storage space, so you needn't cram everything that sits beside your bed into your rickety (and rather small) bedside table. Acting first and foremost as your bed's top end, a storage headboard kills two birds with one stone, providing a smart solution to those messy bits and bobs that tend to accumulate in and around your bedroom. It's the ultimate bedroom storage idea that I'll never stop shouting about, that's for sure. And if you rent, you probably already have a divan frame (and a mattress that you're not sure where it's from, classic!) that's in need of a headboard to spruce up your space a little. You are very welcome!

The fact of the matter remains that the more storage space, the better. I mean, honestly, who really ever has enough room for all their stuff? In my flat, we use every nook and cranny available to store (and hide) things away. But sometimes, you just need some extra help. So here are some incredible storage headboards to allow you to store more whilst using less room. This one's for the most chaotic renters and first-time buyers, to keep your home looking deceptively tidy.
