Ottoman Beds

Size and Space

Check the available space in your bedroom in advance. Measure the floor space and check different locations in your room that the bed could go. You want to maximise the space available without overpowering the room, so it is vital you get this right. You can order the beds in a range of sizes and our Premium Custom Made Ottoman comes in single, small double, double, king or super king sizes with bespoken base depths. Don’t forget to choose a size that not only fits comfortably in your room but also provides enough sleeping space for those using it.

Storage Space

One of the main reasons customers decide on an Ottoman bed is the advantage of its storage capacity. The space under the mattress can be used to store a multitude of things that you don’t want on display. You may already know what you want to store away so consider that and how you intend to use the space beneath the mattress in this planning phase. You have the option of full storage access, or divided compartments, side opening or front opening and a range of base depths. Review all these elements or talk to our team to ensure the bed can accommodate the items you want to store, such as bedding, clothing, or seasonal belongings.

Design and Style

Our Ottoman beds are available in a wide range of designs and styles to complement your existing interior design schemes. Upholstered Ottoman beds are popular for their soft and comfortable headboard designs. You can view our Ottoman Divan Base which has an impressive veneer finish and carefully crafted upholstery in a wide choice of attractive fabrics including Plush, Wool, Matiz, Chenille, Velvet And Crush.
