Sleigh Beds with Storage

Well let’s face it we would all like to have clutter free bedrooms.

Unfortunately the harsh reality of everyday life is where exactly do we put all our gear! One alternative is to invest in a bed with storage. We have a number of attractive mahogany Sleigh Beds with storage to temp you.

Looking at all those polished pictures in the glossy home improvement magazines you would think we all live without any possessions. Of course everyday life is not like this and many bedrooms become strewn with a multitude of articles as we go about our busy lives.

So when your chests and wardrobes begin to bulge at the seams turn to your bed for extra storage. Large drawers set into the base of a mahogany sleigh bed are an excellent storage option. Like this mahogany Reeded King Sleigh Bed with storage drawers each side of the bed.

The drawers are cut into the side rails and glide open on sturdy metal runners. Closed they form part of this irresistible sleigh bed with its handsome reeded panels and curved lines.

A variety of sleigh bed designs are available such as the Celtic Sleigh Bed with four storage drawers constructed in solid wood. Here the drawer fronts are shaped to become a part of the side rail. Without handles they are almost hidden thus maintaining the clean straight lines of the crafted mahogany.

An alternative to the storage drawers on runners is to have the drawers as separate units to the bed. These ‘drawers’ or boxes are mounted on castors and are simply pushed under the bed, their fronts becoming part of the side rails. They maybe not quite so neat but they are larger with a much greater storage capacity than standard drawers…and storage is what we all need!

All these beds are made to order so you have a large choice of sizes and colours.
