All about ottoman beds

In the quest for a stylish and organised bedroom, ottoman beds offer a practical and elegant solution. These versatile furniture pieces combine the functionality of a comfortable bed with hidden storage space. Whether you're seeking to declutter your bedroom or make the most of limited space, an ottoman bed is the perfect choice.

What is an ottoman bed frame?

An ottoman bed frame is a versatile and stylish piece of bedroom furniture that offers both comfort and storage. It's designed with a unique lifting mechanism that allows you to easily lift the mattress and access the storage space underneath.

What is an ottoman divan base?

An ottoman divan base is similar to an ordinary non-storage divan base, sometimes called a box spring, in looks, however it opens to reveal a concealed storage area. Ottoman divan bases are available in a wide range of colours and finishes and can often be purchased with a matching headboard.

How do ottoman beds work?

Ottoman beds use a gas-lift or hydraulic mechanism that allows the mattress to be easily lifted, revealing a spacious storage compartment underneath. The mechanism ensures smooth operation and effortless access to your stored items. Ottoman beds come in both end lift and side lift options, so you are sure to find one that meets your needs.

What are the benefits of using an ottoman bed?

An ottoman bed offers a multitude of benefits in a single package. It maximises storage space, ideal for smaller and larger bedrooms alike and eliminates the need for additional storage options. With various stylish designs and upholstery options available, it seamlessly complements your bedroom decor, while its easy-to-use lifting mechanism grants effortless access to the hidden storage below. 

Are ottoman beds suitable for small bedrooms?

Yes, small double ottoman beds are an excellent choice for bedrooms with limited space. The storage area underneath can help you maximise your bedroom's storage potential, eliminating the need for additional storage and helping maximise floor space. An added feature of ottoman beds is they do not require the added space that a normal storage divan would need for drawers to open.

Can I use any type of mattress with an ottoman bed?

Yes, you can use most types of mattresses with an ottoman bed, including memory foam, spring, and hybrid mattresses. However, it's essential to consider the weight of the mattress, as heavier mattresses might make lifting the base more challenging, especially if the lifting mechanism is manual.

If you are unable to operate a manual mechanism, we also offer an electric front opening ottoman divan base. The divan features an electrical mechanism that allows easy access to the storage space and can be simply operated using the buttons located at the side of the base.

Do ottoman bed frames offer sufficient support for mattresses?

Yes, ottoman bed frames are designed to provide ample support for mattresses. These frames typically feature a robust construction with a solid boarded base, a wooden slatted design or sprung slatted base, ensuring that your mattress remains well-supported throughout its lifespan. 

Whether you have a pocket sprung mattress, a memory foam mattress, or any other type, an ottoman bed frame will help maintain the mattress's structural integrity, ensuring a comfortable and restful night's sleep. 

Are ottoman bed frames easy to assemble?

Assembling an ottoman bed frame is generally a straightforward process. Manufacturers provide detailed instructions and all the necessary hardware, making it manageable for individuals with basic DIY skills. The assembly typically involves assembling the frame and base, adding any feet and then attaching the lifting mechanism.  

While it's a manageable task for many, some people may prefer professional assembly services for added convenience or if they are less confident in their DIY abilities. As with most furniture assembly, it is highly recommended that there are two people present during the assembly process. 

How much storage space can I expect from an ottoman bed?

The storage space you can expect from an ottoman bed varies depending on factors such as the bed's size, design, depth of the storage area, ease of access, weight limit, and the presence of dividers or compartments. Double and king-size ottoman bed's tend to offer more storage space than smaller sizes, and the depth of the compartment can range from a few inches to over a foot.

It's crucial to refer to the specific product specifications provided by the manufacturer or retailer to determine the exact storage capacity of a particular ottoman bed frame, as storage capabilities can differ significantly between models.

How do I maintain an ottoman bed?

To ensure your ottoman bed remains in prime condition, regular maintenance is key. This includes vacuuming the storage area, wiping down the frame, and checking the mechanism for smooth operation. By following these simple steps, you can enjoy the comfort and convenience of your ottoman bed for years to come.

Ottoman beds offer a winning combination of style and functionality, providing hidden storage space to declutter your bedroom while maintaining a chic and comfortable sleeping area. With various sizes, easy operation, and the ability to enhance the aesthetics of your bedroom, ottoman bed frames are a smart choice for any home.

Experience the perfect blend of practicality and elegance with an ottoman bed and enjoy a clutter-free and stylish bedroom.
