Sommiers: what are they for? How to choose?

imagem sommier colmol

Lack of space in the bedroom is a common problem faced by many people. For those who live in apartments or small houses, where space is limited from the start, it can be particularly difficult to make the environment welcoming and pleasant. 

Fortunately, there are solutions that can help maximize the available space and make the room more functional and cozy.

Sommiers have become increasingly popular. They combine aesthetics and comfort, while being an elegant and practical solution for all types of rooms - even those with small dimensions. 

If you're one of those people who can't do without a big bed, but your room doesn't have much space, a sommier could be a smart choice. A true 2 for 1!

What is a sommier?

A sommier is a type of bed that features a storage structure built into its base. 

Using shock absorbers, the base of the sommier can be raised - in a similar way to lifting the hood of a car to access the engine - and the entire internal space of its structure can be used for storage. 

If you like to have everything tidy and organized, a sommier with storage is perfect for you! You can store rugs, towels, bedding and others accessories that you want to have easy reach, but not in sight. This storage base will keep your objects away from dust, and, at the same time, enhance the current and modern design of your room.

Furthermore, a sommier enhances air circulation. This prevents the accumulation of moisture and ensures better conservation of both the mattress and the bed itself.

The sommier differs from a traditional bed because it allows you to combine the best of two worlds in one: rest and storage. 

What are the advantages of using a sommier?

  1. Adequate support. The sommier is designed to provide adequate support for the mattress, which can help extend its lifespan and improve your comfort while you sleep;
  2. More storage space. Thanks to its base with built-in storage space, it can be used to store bedding, cushions, blankets or other items;
  3. Better air circulation. The base of the mattress is designed to allow better air circulation around the mattress, which helps to reduce the accumulation and proliferation of moisture and bacteria.
  4. Aesthetics. A sommier adds an aesthetic touch to a bedroom, helping to create a more pleasant sleeping environment.
  5. Ease of cleaning. As the sommier is elevated from the floor, it makes cleaning easier, keeping the room clean and organized.
  6. Variety of styles. Most sommiers come in a wide variety of colors and textures, which allow them to adapt perfectly to the style and decor of the room. 

So, especially if your room has little space and if you feel the need to increase your home's storage capacity, a sommier could be the ideal choice!

Can I use a sommier with a headboard?

As with most sommiers on the market, our sommier does not include headboard, which needs to be purchased separately. 

There are lots of good reasons to combine your sommier with a Colmol headboard. Discover them here.

What should/should I not keep in my sommier?

The Colmol sommier can be used to store bedding, cushions, clothing and other textiles. Suitcases or footwear should not be stored, as these are items prone to the accumulation of moisture which could damage the base of the sommier.

If you have any questions about the possibility of storing other types of items in your Colmol sommier, you can contact our team. We are always available to help you!

How to clean the sommier?

Sommiers are super simple to clean! Even so, similar to what happens with the mattress cleaning, you should avoid using homemade recipes such as baking soda or vinegar.

To clean the sommier, it must first be vacuumed to remove dust and impurities that may have accumulated. Then, with a damp microfiber cloth free of any product, the base area should be gently rubbed in circular movements.
