If you have a small bedroom or just need more storage space, then getting an ottoman bed is a great solution. This way you can lift up the ottoman base, and you’ll have lots of storage space available underneath your bed. This is great because there you can store away and hide all kinds of belongings: bedding, clothes, etc. Its particularly handy if you have any long items that need to be stored away.
When shopping for an ottoman bed, you’ll notice that almost all lift up from the side of the footboard, but there are a few models that lift from the left or right hand side of the bed. You’ll see that there are some storage beds, with drawers that can be accessed from the side of the bed. Some people prefer them, because you can easily and quickly access the drawers, instead of lifting up the bed. However, keep in mind that a king size ottoman divan base has 6 times more space than a 2 drawer divan. So if storage space is important to you, an ottoman divan is the best.
In this article, we’ve only included grey coloured ottoman beds, because this colour is always in fashion, its neutral, and fits very well with almost all bedroom interiors.
