We're slightly obsessed with Made's Roscoe bed, and we think it will look elegant inside any master bedroom. Not to mention that it comes with storage whilst being stylish – in the form of two matching drawers that simply slide underneath the bed. Smart. Its rounded, curvy headboard plays its part to cocoon you in your slumber, while it sits on solid wooden feet that boast a Nordic charm. It's wrapped in a soft fabric that comes in various colourways, too. Did we mention that its headboard is padded for your comfort?

This uniquely-shaped bed is the stuff of Instagram dreams. The kids will love it, and so will you thanks to its space-savvy features. You can add on an under bed drawer for their pyjama collection and their spare bedding sets to live – otherwise, there's enough room for an under bed storage box to live, so long as you don't mind them being on display. To say that this bed is a fun shape would be an understatement, with round window holes on either end to let in light. It's also low down so you needn't worry as much about smaller children sleeping on it, plus it comes in your choice of white or grey. Once they've outgrown the teepee look, you can remove the top section, leaving just a plain single bed for them to sleep in. Sturdy, too, thanks to its solid wood construction, and its unique design means they can't jump up and down on it and make your downstairs lighting shake. Win-win!

If it's a dramatic focal point (in addition to plenty of storage) that you're looking for, this popular Chesterfield-esque storage bed fits the bill perfectly. You know what we love about this storage bed? It has legs! Such a rare thing with storage beds, as you usually get just a block base. We personally prefer a bed with legs – they're just a bit more stylish, and the overall look is less bulky in your bedroom. It's also fitted with smart slats, that have been designed to provide the most comfortable night's sleep. The slats are wider at the shoulder lumbar and feet, so help encourage the perfect spinal alignment while you sleep. Dreamy. Choose from a huge range of colours (25+).

Available in: single, double, king, super king

This budget-friendly find from John Lewis' ANYDAY range is brilliant. It may be one of the cheapest storage beds on our list, but rest assured it's still one of the best storage beds, and a stylish – and practical – option at that. The base lifts up to reveal heaps of space for storing anything from shoes to seasonal clothes and bedding. Plus, it's fitted with smart slats, too. Despite being affordable, you're still getting a bed that is really supportive. It only comes in a grey colour, though.

Available in: small double, a double, king size.


What to consider before buying a storage bed?

The main consideration when it comes to choosing the best storage beds for you, besides the way it looks, has to be its storage. Some storage beds boast drawers, whilst others lift up to reveal storage space. Either way, both are undeniably handy when it comes to hiding your clutter. Which one will you choose?

Drawers
If you are choosing a storage bed with drawers, whether it's one drawer or four, be sure to measure that your new bed fits inside your room – with every drawer open. You can get storage beds with drawers that aren't attached to the bed so that they can be pulled right out or organised however you wish, and this still allows for a bit of visible space underneath the bed, too. We suggest buying a storage bed with drawers if your room is spacious.

Ottoman space
Storage beds that lift up are otherwise known as ottoman beds. This obviously means you can only access your items when no one is sat on the bed, which might be a bit of an annoyance sometimes. Saying that, ottoman beds are definitely better for space-savvy rooms, with no need to allow for extra space when it comes to accessing your storage.
