If you’re seeking out a new bed that is both stylish and practical, you should consider an ottoman. This design is very much on trend currently, and will serve as the perfect centrepiece to any bedroom upgrade.
So what is an ottoman bed, and why are they so popular?
What is an Ottoman Bed?
This type of bed is particularly recognisable because the bottom of its frame falls closer to the ground than that of other designs. The same applies to ottoman couches and seats. The name comes from the rulers of 13th Century Turkey, where this practical furniture was first invented.
Practical, Functional Storage
The reason for this type of bed design – and for the popularity of the ottoman throughout the world – is not only aesthetic. The frame does more than hold up a mattress and keep a headboard in place; it also doubles as a significant storage solution.
With elegant hydraulic hinges to safely lift the mattress and bed slats, the base can be used as a spacious compartment in which you may store anything from bedding and towels to jewellery, clothing, shoes and anything else that would otherwise clutter your room.
It’s extremely easy to use and will help you to save a great deal of space.
Stylish Designs for Any Aesthetic
While ottoman beds always feature a practical box-like frame, this is really all they have in common. Your chosen ottoman bed can be upholstered in any material you choose, with headboards and feet designed however you prefer.
As a result, you’ll be able to find the perfect ottoman bed to suit your interior design preferences.
Fun and Useful Features
Opting for a beautiful bed with superb inbuilt storage does not mean you’ll have to forego any other great features – for example, there are ottoman TV beds available, allowing you to access a 42” television built into the foot of the bed at the simple push of a button.
Many ottomans also feature useful shelves, adding to the generous storage options they already provide. You can choose from side lift or end lift options – meaning the bed’s hydraulic system will raise your mattress and slats from either the side or the end.
Ottoman beds will support any kind of mattress you prefer, from open coil and pocket spring to memory foam and medical grade foam – so you can select your favourite combination for a superb night’s sleep.
