If you’ve just started searching for an Ottoman bed you're probably wondering what the best type is. Firstly, let us congratulate you on making a fantastic choice! Without a doubt these storage beds are worth their weight in gold. Not only do they look great, but they can store up to four times the amount as a standard four drawer divan. Therefore, they’re great for keeping your bedroom clutter free. In turn this can help to keep your bedroom the calming space that it should be. However, once you’ve started looking, you’ll no doubt be asking what the is the best type of Ottoman bed?
Ultimately it is your needs that will determine what type of Ottoman bed is best for you. However, in our experience and opinion the best type is a divan style Ottoman bed. There are several reasons for this, and they are as follows: -
4 Pistons – All our Ottoman beds from a small double upwards come with 4 pistons. The pistons are the mechanisms that assist you lifting the bed open. This is in comparison to bedstead Ottomans that only come with two. Indeed, the benefit of 4 pistons means that lifting is easier, and the construction is sturdier.
Ability to Support a Heavier Mattress – Leading on from point number 1, the 4 pistons means that you can have a heavier mattress on your Ottoman bed. This is because the weight is distributed over the 4 pistons. Better quality mattresses tend to weigh more. Therefore, a divan style Ottoman bed means you don’t have to sacrifice on mattress quality.
Boarded Base – Another huge advantage of our divan style Ottoman beds is that they all feature a boarded base. With some bedstead style Ottoman beds there isn’t a base and therefore your items sit on the floor.
Easy To Assemble – All our Ottoman divan beds are straightforward to assemble. The main base comes in two halves that just simply attach to each other. Then all that is left to do is attach the headboard and you’re good to go.
Wide Choice of Colour and Fabrics – As all our divan style Ottoman beds are made to order, there is an impressive choice of colours and fabrics. In some case there is over 30 choices. However, bedstead style ottomans may only come in a limited number of colourways.
