At Manor House Beds, we recognise that bedrooms come in all shapes and sizes. As such, we cater to as many requirements as possible with the products in our bed shop. One such option includes ottoman beds, the perfect blend of style and function. Not only do ottoman beds hold an undeniable aesthetic appeal, they also offer integrated storage, a valuable feature for homeowners working with limited space. This means that ottoman beds provide a place for keeping bed linens, clothes or any other personal belongings without taking up any more valuable floor space than the dimensions of the bed base itself.
Visitors to our bed shop in Crawley Down can take in our full range of ottoman beds, as well as a complete range of other bedroom essentials. Our reputation for premium-quality products at affordable prices sees us welcome property owners from across the region, including local areas like Crawley, East Grinstead, Edenbridge, Horley, Horsham, Redhill and Reigate.
Ahead of your trip to our bed shop, however, we have provided a brief guide to ottoman beds below to give a better understanding of whether they suit your needs and tastes.
What is an Ottoman Bed?
Ottoman beds are a type of divan bed, the primary difference being their storage space doesn’t come in the form of in-built drawers. Instead, the defining characteristic of ottoman beds remains their ability to tilt the mattress upward, usually from the foot end. But with designs that include end- or side-opening as well as full- or half-opening, visitors to our bed shop can find the perfect option to suit the dimensions of their room.
Like traditional divans, the storage area is contained within the space directly beneath the mattress, so in most cases the only consideration remains the height of the ceiling. However, this usually presents no obstacle.
As an added benefit, due to the use of pneumatic gas pistons, our customers in Crawley, Edenbridge, Horley, Redhill and the surrounding areas don’t need to do any heavy lifting to access their stored goods. What’s more, these pistons also help to gently shut, as opposed to slamming, the bed back into place.
The primary benefit of ottoman beds remains their ability to maximise available space. From East Grinstead to Horsham, and from Crawley Down to Reigate, homeowners throughout West Sussex and Surrey must contend with tight dimensions in some rooms. With storage space at a premium, ottoman beds make the perfect solution.
They also have an added benefit over traditional divan beds as they don’t have any weight restrictions within drawers. The storage space for ottoman beds is the bedroom floor itself, so homeowners can store heavier items with ease.
As an added benefit, dust becomes less of an issue too. Anyone with a bed frame that leaves a gap between the frame and the floor knows all too well that anything stored in that space gets a healthy coating of dust if left unused for long enough. Not only can this become messy and dirty when it comes to retrieve these items, it also stirs up numerous allergies.
