Ottoman Bed Bases: Perfect Practicality

Space is always at a premium and this is especially true when it comes to bedrooms. The bed itself is the largest piece of furniture to take into consi­dera­tion and so an ottoman bed, with its generously-sized extra storage space, can be the perfect solution.

The ottoman, invented in the Ottoman Empire from which it takes its name and brought to Europe in the 18th century, was originally a low wooden platform that was piled with cushions and was the central seating area in a house, covering three walls. It evolved into smaller versions designed to fit in the corner of a room and eventually started being made with a hinged lid that gave access to a storage area beneath. An ottoman bed has a similar storage area.

Odd Size Beds is a proud supplier of ottoman bed bases, which are constructed using a durable combination of timber and chipboard; this makes them much heavier and more robust than standard divan bed bases. We supply ottoman bed bases that are opened using a powerful hydraulic system which makes the lifting process rapid and easy. The lid's surface is equipped with effective non-slip fabric, preventing the mattress from slipping off when the base is opened.

The space is commonly used to store things like duvets, blankets, pillows, bedding and towels though you can use it to store just about anything you like. This makes the bed supremely practical, allowing you to save precious space in your bedroom.
