To access the storage, there’s a hydraulic system with a soft close mechanism that lifts the bed to reveal storage space. Sprung slats give the mattress good support.
Happy Beds Mayfair Bed A large buttoned and upholstered headboard gives this bed some real presence.
The Mayfair bed has four drawers within its base that open out to a depth of only 50cm each, which makes them better suited to store clothes and thin blankets rather than spare duvets and pillows.
It arrives flat-packed and you can buy the bed frame only or add a choice of four mattress types.
Time4Sleep Serenity Upholstered ottoman storage bed This is a great option for those seeking ottoman-style storage on a budget.
The Serenity bed ( above) delivers the same package as most luxury lifting beds, but for half the price. The catch is it arrives flat packed, and requires self-assembly, but there are major savings if you don’t mind the DIY.
This version has a comfortable upholstered finish in neutral ‘mink’, a gas-lift mechanism and a fully-boarded storage area.
OUR VERDICT The Poppy storage bed ( below) from Button & Sprung is a comfortable bed with a quality mechanism that can lift mattresses up to 90kg. Although it conceals a lot of storage space, it doesn’t look bulky and would be great for small spaces where drawers would be hard to access.
But the Muji oak bed is the best budget contender as it combines three types of storage in one neat frame. – The Independent
