What are ottoman bed frames?

There’s nothing quite like waking up to a neat and tidy room. An ottoman bed frame features a deep hidden compartment, providing a convenient storage solution for small bedrooms. The ottoman storage bed design comprises a liftable top section, revealing the storage functions of the ottoman bed base. Our wide range of stylish ottomans is incredibly easy to lift, providing a user-friendly storage solution for any bedroom or spare room.

What are the benefits of ottoman beds?

  • From storing linen and towels to keeping toys in check in a children’s bedroom, an ottoman storage bed is the best way to keep floor space clear. 

  • Storage beds also provide a perfect hideaway for occasional-use items, storing them out of sight until they’re called into action.

  • Ottoman storage aids also help to create a welcoming and pleasant place to unwind, turning your bedroom into a clean and spacious sanctuary where you can decompress after a long day. 

  • The design of an ottoman is perfect for smaller apartments and studios where space-saving is key, as well as small box rooms. 

Reducing reliance on extra furniture and storage pieces, an ottoman divan bed is the ultimate solution for areas where space is at a premium.

How do ottoman storage beds work?

With a clever design, storage ottomans function in a simple manner. The mechanics of an ottoman bed frame boil down to pistons or gas struts which bear the brunt of the mattress’s weight. Lessening the load, the ottoman design provides quick and easy access to the storage compartment.

Our comprehensive range of ottoman divan bases features an array of innovative designs, including half-end opening frames, side-open ottomans, and traditional full-end openers. 

The bed frames of an ottoman can rise and close with the greatest of ease, making them well-suited for storing items you regularly require access to. From bedding to books, an ottoman storage bed can store anything you need, leaving greater room to breathe in your sleeping space.

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

  • Ottoman base–side lift

  • Ottoman base – bottom lift

Divan beds

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 you choose an ottoman that lifts from the correct side to make it easy to access.

Ottoman bases - bottom lift

These ottomans rise 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.

Single ottomans

These come in a standard single size of 3’ x 6’3”. They are ideal for a child’s room or a 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.

Double ottomans

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 bed 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 mattresses are suitable for ottoman bed frames?

As comfortable as they are practical, ottoman storage beds offer luxury combined with functionality. To make the most out of this high-quality design, the right mattress is essential. Thickness and firmness are key factors to consider, as well as the specific needs of the user.

With everything from orthopaedic mattress to latex-based and pocket-sprung mattresses, there are an array of options. For full efficiency of the ottoman lifting mechanism, lighter mattresses may be a good fit.

Our memory foam mattresses are made from dense materials which provide a lightweight touch, perfect for a restful night’s sleep in an ottoman. Finding the right size mattress for your bed is incredibly easy, as our range features everything from small single and double bed mattresses to king-size storage bed mattresses. For more information, read up on how to choose the right mattress

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 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.
