Buying a reinforced bed is important to you. Perhaps you need a robust frame to withstand more than average usage, maybe you are dealing with challenging behaviour, or maybe you just want a bed that will last.
Choosing the style of your reinforced bed opens many questions. What type of heavy-duty mattress do you need? Do you want a matching headboard? One additional question, that you might not have considered, is – what are your under-bed storage needs?
Are you looking for neat storage?
A heavy-duty divan style is a great choice if you are looking for discrete storage. There is the classic option of a divan base with under-bed draws. The Reflections Ultimate Comfort is a great choice if you don’t have too much to stow and want easy-access storage. Available with the option of either two or four draws, this bed is made from solid MDF and is beautifully upholstered.
If you have more to store than will fit into regular under-bed draws, then the Side Lift Ottoman Base and the End Lift Ottoman Base both give you the maximum space available. With the whole mattress lifting up on hinges, the whole under-bed space is available for storage.
What if I need to store much larger items?
The divan option is great for storing certain items, but each storage area is only the maximum width and length of a single bed. What if you need to store much longer items? Metal-frame beds could be a solution. With a fully welded upper surface and steel sidebars, this extra strong bed requires no middle support. This means that the entire space underneath this bed is available for storage. There are plenty of attractive under-bed storage boxes available for this purpose.
What if I need no under-bed space?
When people think of the under-bed space, they are often thinking about storage. But for people caring for individuals with challenging behaviour, the under-bed area can be a concern. For people experiencing anxiety or a difficult episode, the under-bed area can become a place to hide. A bed, such as the Heavy-Duty Divan Base, has no under-bed area and sits very slightly off the ground on feet. This offers no place to hide, which gives a safe option when looking for a bed base.
