Why choose an Ottoman bed?
If you’re in need of a practical solution to the storage issues that every household experiences, then an ottoman bed is an option that means you don’t have to sacrifice on style.
The popularity of bedroom ottomans has grown significantly in recent years, with the main attraction being the storage space available underneath your mattress.
The average modern home is being constructed to smaller specifications than ever before, so how we make use of our available storage space is increasingly important.
Of course, whether your home is large or small, extra storage space is always helpful!
And if you rent your home, a bed that offers in-built storage means you’ll always have somewhere to keep your things, in any property you live on.
Plus, people love that most bedroom ottomans are compatible with any type of mattress, giving you greater flexibility.
What do you need to store?
With storage space accessed by a simple and safe gas lift mechanism, an ottoman bed can help you create a clutter-free bedroom in which you can unwind and relax at the end of the day.
Because the under-bed storage area is self-contained, all of your items will stay clean and dust-free, making a double ottoman bed perfect for storing bedding and linens such as sheets, pillows, duvets and towels.
Items for seasonal or occasional use are also ideal pieces to be stored away under a bedroom ottoman.
As an example, if you look at this gorgeous Livingstone linen bed, you can see exactly the amount of storage a double ottoman bed can offer.
Compare it to a four-drawer divan bed, and you’ll quickly notice how much extra space you can use.
Choose the perfect mattress
Aside from the storage benefits, another great reason to buy a bedroom ottoman is that it’s compatible with any type of mattress.
Most double ottoman beds have either a slatted base for a slightly softer feel, like this Carrie fabric ottoman bed, or a hard top to provide greater support, like this Arden White High Gloss bed.
Combined with your individual choice of mattress, whether it’s coil sprung, pocket sprung, pillow top or memory foam, you have the ability to get the level of comfort and support just right.
Pick the perfect style
Don’t worry. The days when the most elegant and stylish beds didn’t offer storage are long gone.
Most bedroom ottomans can be finished in wood, faux leather or fabric.
And the range of colour options available with fabric ottoman beds, as seen in the Beds.net collection here, really gives you the chance to add some style and flair.
Fabric ottoman beds can be a statement piece for any bedroom - but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on storage.
And remember that ottoman beds don’t have to be confined to the spare room.
You’re sure to find a dream double ottoman bed to suit your taste and style while also offering convenient storage to enhance your master bedroom.
