Without a doubt there are some great advantages to owning an Ottoman bed. Indeed, these types of storage beds have become our best-selling models. So what are the benefits?
Mahoosive amount of storage. Without a doubt, the number one feature of an Ottoman bed has to be the amount of storage that they have on offer. Indeed, you’d be surprised just how much these little babies can store! In fact, did you know that an Ottoman bed can store up to four times the amount as a standard four drawer divan? Impressive, we know.
Storage is easy to Access. One concern is often that an Ottoman is difficult to lift. However, you don’t need to sign up for a gym membership just yet. This is because all our Ottomans are fitted with gas lift hydraulic arms making access as easy as pie.
Bang on trend. If you thought storage beds were a fuddy-duddy then think again. Whilst storage beds used to be considered dull, these new generation beds are the exact opposite. Indeed, when designing these beds, the uttermost consideration is given to aesthetics.
Wide range of style. Following on from the previous point, our Ottoman beds are available in extensive range of styles. From art deco influenced beds to traditional chesterfield styles, we’ve got it covered.
Choice of finishes. Our Ottomans are available in number of different materials. From pine to plush velvet fabric, there’s a bed that suitable for everyone.
Can help to keep your bedroom tidy and organised. It goes without saying that more storage means you can keep your bedroom ship shape and organised. Furthermore, because the storage is using the space under the bed it helps to keep your room feeling streamlined.
As with everything there are some drawbacks but what are they?
Can be expensive. As these beds offer more and are more costly to manufacturer, they are more expensive than a standard bed frame. However, we do offer interest free payments on all purchases over £500.00 so can spread the cost.
Difficult to maneuver. Due to the nature of these beds, they can be difficult to move. As most people will use the storage to their full capacity the bed will become heavy. Furthermore, if you want to move your bed to a different location then it won’t be a quick process. Especially if you’ve used every inch of the storage available!
Clearly when it comes to the pros and cons of Ottoman beds, there are some significant advantages. However, only you can decide what is right for your circumstances. We just hope that we have made the process a little easier!
