Ottoman Beds for Small Spaces: Making the Most of Limited Space

If you’ve been browsing for your next bed, then you’ve most likely come across ottoman divan bed bases. These frames are exceptional space savers, as well as being incredibly comfortable and stylish.

But why are ottoman beds so great for small spaces – and are they the best choice for your room?

Keep reading to find out more about the benefits of ottoman beds and how they could help you make the most of limited space.


What exactly is an ottoman bed base?

Elegantly combining comfort and practicality, an ottoman is a bed that has a hollow structure with under-bed storage built into the frame. To access the storage area, your mattress platform is lifted using a handle, which is effortless thanks to gas lift pistons that carry the lift and hold the platform firmly in place.

Like any other bed, ottomans come in a range of different styles and can be made from a selection of materials, including oak or timber and fabric upholstering.


How do ottoman divan bases help you make the most of your space?

Ottoman bed bases are superb at solving space-saving conundrums for several reasons, including:


Space-saving under-bed storage

As mentioned earlier, to reduce the need for an extra chest of drawers on your floor, ottoman bed frames can store a range of items within. This space is excellent for holding spare duvets, clean linen, seasonal clothes (depending on the time of year), and more.

If you wish to store smaller items, such as shoes and keepsakes, you can purchase separate storage compartment trays to keep your under-bed neat, tidy, and well-organised. You could even use vacuum pack bags to save even more space.


Plenty of lift-up options

Ottoman beds have a stunning selection of base openings to meet the requirements of small bedrooms and guestrooms, no matter the shape.

For longer spaces, end-opening ottomans are the most ideal models, as there’s more space for you to lift and remove items from beneath. Additionally, they leave the sides clear to avoid clashing with bedside drawers.

Shorter and more box-shaped rooms benefit from side lift openings – meaning you can access your storage from the side without obstacles in the way.


Available in a selection of sizes

From single ottoman beds to double ottoman bases, there’s an ottoman out there that will best fit your smaller room and free up necessary floor space.

For example, single models are ideal for children’s and guest rooms, where toys or fresh sheets can be stored.

For solo sleepers and couples, a small double or standard double is ideal for providing ample room to stretch throughout the night whilst offering a spacious area beneath, meaning you aren’t compromising on storage space.
