What are the different types of ottoman beds?
Ottoman storage beds are a practical, smart choice. Not only are they functional, but they’re good looking, too. There is a variety of ottomans on offer that deliver a classic look with that all-important additional storage space that every modern bedroom needs.
Divan Beds are not technically ottomans, as they have drawers rather than a lift-up top. However, they are a great option if you have a little extra floor space around the sides of your bed.
Ottoman bases - side lift
These ottomans lift the whole of the top from the side, allowing you to access the storage area. It’s important to make sure that if your bed is against a wall that you choose an ottoman that lifts from the correct side to make it easy to access.
Ottoman bases - bottom lift
These ottomans raise from the bottom edge or foot of the bed and are ideal if your bedroom is a little smaller. It’s easy to access the storage area and they’re a great choice for kid’s bedrooms and smaller master bedrooms where floor space is at a premium.
What sizes are ottoman storage beds available in?
The size of your ottoman bed frame will depend on the size of your room. Just like any other bed, you need to measure up first to see what size footprint your bedroom has, and then choose the appropriate size bed to fit.
These come in a standard single size of 3’ x 6’3”. They are ideal for a child’s room or small spare room that is used occasionally to accommodate an overnight guest.
Small double ottomans
If you want to offer your guests a little extra space and have a slightly larger floor footprint, a small double is just the thing. They measure a standard 4’ x 6’3” and can comfortably accommodate two sleepers.
The perfect choice for a spare room or second bedroom, a double ottoman measures 4’6” x 6’3”. Remember to consider whether you want a foot opening option or a left or right-sided opening action when choosing a larger ottoman.
King-size and super-king ottomans
Got a bit more space? It’s time to indulge yourself in that ultimate master bedroom with a king-size or super-king ottoman. A king-size measures 5’ x 6’6” and a super-king is a luxurious 6’ x 6’6”, perfect if you’re a little taller or just simply want that ‘stretch out’ space!

What is the best headboard for an ottoman bed base?
Ottoman bed bases are designed to take a standard headboard, so any type of headboard will be suitable as long as it’s the correct size. You can choose from classic buttoned designs through to faux leather. Some ottomans come with their own purpose-designed headboard, so it’s worth browsing the different types of combinations available before you make your final decision.
Are there other types of storage beds available?
The most obvious alternative to an ottoman is a divan bed with drawers. These can be in a variety of combinations from a single drawer up to four-drawer options. You can also get ottoman/divan combinations, with a single or double drawer design with a lower ottoman half that raises from the foot of the bed to reveal a single storage area.
