If you're in search of a bed that combines style and storage, look no further than an ottoman storage bed. These beds have become incredibly popular among homeowners due to their practicality and aesthetic appeal. With a wide range of designs, sizes, and colors available, choosing the right ottoman bed can seem overwhelming. That's why we've put together this ultimate buying guide to help you make an informed decision without any hassle!

What is an Ottoman Bed?

Ottoman beds have a rich history that dates back to the Ottoman Empire in the 13th century. The term "Ottoman" originates from this empire, where the style and storage feature gained immense popularity. The concept of ottoman beds spread across the Mediterranean and eventually became a household name as the go-to storage bed frame.

In modern times, an ottoman bed refers to a bed with a mattress that can be lifted to reveal underbed storage space. Most ottomans come with a convenient gas-lift mechanism for easy access, regardless of the weight of the mattress.

Benefits of Ottoman Storage

Ottoman beds offer several advantages over traditional bed frames. Firstly, they add a touch of luxury and style to any bedroom decor. Moreover, the storage feature of ottoman beds allows you to declutter your bedroom by neatly hiding away your belongings.

These beds are perfect for storing sheets, linen, and other bedroom items that might otherwise clutter up your space. You can even use them to store seasonal or occasional items like winter clothing and Christmas decorations, keeping them out of sight until needed. The gas-lift storage mechanism makes it easy to store and access your belongings, making ottoman beds suitable for all ages.

Thanks to their unique design, ottoman beds are perfect for both small and large rooms. The mattress lifts up, providing access to the underbed storage without requiring additional space on the sides of the bed. This makes them ideal for cramped corners and awkward room layouts!

One such example is the Livorno Line Bed, a stylish ottoman bed with expansive underbed storage and an impressive headboard, making it a striking centerpiece in any bedroom.

Choosing Your Ottoman Bed

Now that you understand the basics, let's dive into choosing your perfect ottoman bed. Follow our step-by-step guide below to browse through different sizes, materials, and designs to find the one that suits you best.

Pick a Size

Most ottoman beds come in three main sizes:

  • Double: 4"6 (W 135cm x L 190cm)
  • King: 5" (W 150cm x L 200cm)
  • Super King: 6" (W 180cm x L 200cm)

Consider the size of your room and the amount of underbed storage space you require. Remember, the larger the bed size, the more storage space you'll have as it fills the entire bed frame. If you're looking for an ottoman bed in a single (3FT) size, check out the Francis Ottoman Storage Bed. It's perfect for saving space in guest bedrooms or kids' rooms and can even be neatly tucked into a corner while still providing extra storage.

Additional Considerations

When purchasing an ottoman bed, there are a few other factors to consider:

  • Measure your bedroom to ensure you have enough space to maneuver around the bed and open the storage. Refer to our handy bed size guide for assistance.
  • Avoid overloading your ottoman bed. Our ottoman storage beds are designed to hold a significant load, including shoes, toys, clothes, and other items. Most beds can hold at least 100kg of items, with some accommodating up to 170kg.
  • Ottoman beds are compatible with mattresses of the same size. The gas-lift mechanism ensures easy lifting, regardless of the mattress weight. Check out our mattress guide for more information on buying a new mattress for your bed.
