Storage spaces and folding beds!

Recently we have been thinking about storage solutions, in particular wardrobe systems for smaller spaces and rooms where you would like to fit a lot in but do not have the space.

Within our ever changing modern world, homes seem to be getting smaller due to the lack of space within over crowded cities and towns. Many rooms may not have the floor space for a double bed but with a wardrobe system incorporating a pull out or pull down bed it may be possible to fit a double bed into your space. This could be a great option for those wanting dual purpose room such as an office/guest room.

As well as pull down beds we have been looking at other features that can be incorporated into wardrobe systems to maximise space and storage and add to the function of the room. Features that we thought to include are: a vanity area, shoe storage, hanging rails and shelving would all be great additions a wardrobe system, to either maximise storage space or perhaps for a walk in wardrobe.

We have been thinking about possible wardrobe systems incorporating some of these features.

Our first idea features a pull down double bed, plenty of hanging rails, shelving and lots of areas to store clothes and anything else. Also featured is a vanity area with a build in window seat to provide extra seating for the room.


Our second idea has a double bed which has been lowered into a platform on the floor. The platform has a step to reach the higher level to provide access to the wardrobe on the back wall. The bed is able to be covered to provide a huge amount of floor space. We also have a vanity area at the end of the wardrobe with spotlights either side.

What do you think of these all interesting storage possibilities? Could these help within improving the future of your family home?
