    Are Ottoman Beds Easy to Lift?

    Have you’ve been eyeing up an ottoman bed to put an end to your storage woes? If so, then you’ll know that ottoman beds are unbeatable for their storage capacity. Indeed, an ottoman bed can offer up to four times the amount of storage as a standard four drawer divan. Pretty impressive, eh? However, you may be wondering if ottoman beds are easy to lift. After all, there is no point in having all that glorious space if you need a car jack to access it!

    Are Ottoman Beds Easy to Lift?

    Yes – Ottoman Beds are Easy to Lift!

    The simple answer is that ottoman beds are easy to lift.  Each and every one of  our ottoman beds is fitted with gas pistons that makes lifting one of these as easy as pie.. These gas pistons look like bicycle pumps that release air as they are moved.  If you own a car then you will already be familiar with gas pistons as these are fitted to assist with opening your boot.

    Are Some Ottoman Beds Easier to Lift Than Others?

    Whilst all our ottoman beds feature gas pistons some are easier to lift than others. The reason for this is that some of our beds have two pistons and some have four. As you might have guessed, the ottoman beds with four pistons are slightly easier to lift. This is basically because four pistons give you more assistance than two.  If you specifically want an ottoman bed with four pistons then you need to take a peek at our range of ottoman divan beds.

    Anything Else I Should Know?

    One of the most common concerns that people have when they first receive their bed is that it won’t seem to close. However, the solution to the problem is really simple. Indeed, most people don’t realise that in order for the gas pistons to work properly they need to have the mattress on the bed. Without the weight of the mattress, the bed will remain open and is extremely difficult to close. What’s more, the first time you try to close your ottoman bed you will need to apply significant force to release the pistons. And don’t panic, we can assure you that you won’t break the bed!
