Experience has taught me there’s truth in the saying that location is everything. Having lived in amazing homes in poor locations and decent homes in great locations, I am sold. To me, the amazing home in a poor location is nothing but a golden cage.
Choosing a decent home has a price, however. It means less space to store things. Which means one needs to be smart about their storage solutions.
The most significant and efficient solution I have to date is my guestroom bed. It’s an Ottoman and I bought mine from IKEA. It has served me well for over seven years, and still serves me to date.
Other than its mattress, it really is nothing but storage space. It’s built as a hollow, sturdy frame. It has a compact mechanism allowing me to easily lift up the mattress. That mechanism also means I need no space around the bed to open it, as it opens upwards.
If you, like me, are looking for smart storage solutions – then I highly recommend checking out the Ottoman beds. Rest assured, you’ll have plenty of extra storage space.
