What are the different types of ottoman storage available?
You'll find three types of ottoman storage here – all of which will help you transform your bedroom into a relaxing and clutter-free space, while enjoying the comfort and convenience of a luxurious bed. Let us tell you about them all…
Firstly, there are ottoman lift-up beds that rise from the foot end of the bed. They offer clever and practical storage that maximises space and provides easy access to your belongings. You can reveal a generous storage compartment beneath the bed frame with a simple mattress lift.
Next, there are ottoman beds with a side lift – they allow you to access your belongings from the side of the bed. With a smooth and easy-to-use mechanism, you can effortlessly lift the mattress to reveal spacious storage.
Finally, we have two-drawer half ottomans that combine the benefits of lift-up storage with the added convenience of pull-out side drawers. With two roomy drawers at the front, you can keep all your essentials neat and organised while enjoying extra lift-up storage at the end of the bed frame.
The benefits of an ottoman bed:
Ottoman frames provide plenty of practical and style-focused features to help you fall back in love with your bedroom. We go into detail on this in our ottoman bed guide, but in short, these include:
1. Extra storage
Beneath the mattress on any ottoman bed is a large compartment where you can store all those pesky extras – clothes, shoes, bedding, Christmas decorations, luggage, or even golf clubs! The bigger the ottoman, the more storage space you’ll have, so keep this in mind if you’re debating between a double or king size.
2. Easy lift mechanism
A completely safe, hydraulic piston means there’s no limitations on who can access the under-bed storage. As soon as you begin to lift the frame, the mechanism will kick in and provide stress-free access to your stored items.
3. Multimedia capabilities
Plenty of our ottoman bed frames include space for a TV or games console. Check out the Drift Gaming Bed for the ultimate take on a multimedia-savvy bed frame. You can also find ottomans with USB chargers, mood lighting and more.
4. Broad selection of styles
Splashes of colour, elegant velvets, faux leather materials and design-conscious wooden and metal frames – there are almost no limitations to style when choosing an ottoman. Pair a country wooden frame with neutral décor patterns or couple chrome ottoman detailing with an industrial décor scheme.
5. Clever shadow frames for elegant styling and maximum storage
For those who love an elevated bedframe, shadow ottomans create the same look yet still contain under bed storage. Check out our inspiring guide to shadow ottomans for more information.
