Side Opening Ottoman Beds

Our range of side opening ottoman beds offer the perfect combination of style, comfort and storage at an affordable price. Available in all standard UK sizes and with a range of beautiful designs to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect bed that will look fabulous in your bedroom.

Ottoman beds are a popular choice across the UK due to the vast amount of additional storage space they provide, without taking up more space than a typical standard or Divan bed. 

All our side opening ottoman beds incorporate storage space underneath the bed which is easily accessed via an easy to use gas assisted lifting mechanism which makes the bed a breeze to operate. 

All you need to do is give the bed frame a small push or pull to start raising the bed base up and the mechanism will do the rest of the work for you. Providing easy access to the storage space for as long as you need it. You can configure which side the bed opens from the outset too, ensuring that it fits with your exact needs.

But our side opening ottoman beds don’t just provide ample storage space for your belongings, they also provide you with a luxurious and comfortable sleep too. You can choose from a number of headboards in a variety of fabrics and colours to customise your bed even further, adding a touch of luxury to your bedroom.

If you’re also looking for a new mattress to ensure you get a good night’s sleep, we have a wide range of mattresses in all sizes to choose from. Whether you like to sink into your mattress or feel more supported, we’ve got the mattress to suit your sleep style.

Traditionally, Ottoman beds are accessed from the end of the bed, however, our side opening ottoman beds provide you with an alternative way to access the integrated storage space underneath.

Fitted with a gas operated mechanism that makes the bed base super easy to lift, a side opening ottoman bed is the perfect option for someone who is looking to take advantage of the additional storage space it provides, but requires a side opening configuration rather than the traditional end opening solution due to the layout of the bedroom.

Ottoman beds are a lot easier to assemble than you may think and with our super easy to follow guides and videos, we’ll ensure that you don’t put a foot wrong when building your ottoman bed at home. From assembling the base and fitting the lifting mechanism through to fixing the headboard, our guides cover it all.

You’ll be pleased to hear that side opening ottoman beds are strong and reliable, but the exact weight each ottoman bed can bear comes down to the size, manufacturer and when it comes to the lifting mechanism, the strength of the pistons. It’s important to check these details whenever you are looking to purchase an ottoman bed if you are concerned at all regarding its weight bearing capabilities.

Standard ottomans will usually be designed to lift 40 to 60 kg of weight when it comes to the mattress, however heavy duty mattresses will often weigh more than this. Contact our team of experts today to discuss any questions you may have regarding the strength of any of our ottoman bed ranges.

Yes, all our side opening ottoman beds are suitable for any mattress type, it really all comes down to your personal preference when it comes to what mattress you choose.

This question comes down to personal needs and preferences. Both have their benefits and depending on what features you are looking for from your bed, you are likely to lean more towards one or the other.

Ottoman beds offer a huge amount of storage space that’s easy to access and are available in a number of styles, designs, colours and fabric finishes, however, they tend to be more expensive than divan beds and are difficult to move once the storage space has been filled.

Divan beds on the other hand are generally cheaper than ottoman beds, are easy to assemble and move and are available in a number of sizes and a range of materials and colours. However they provide less storage space than an ottoman bed and are bulkier when delivered, which could make them harder to manoeuvre into the house prior to assembling. Plus they are more difficult to clean underneath due to their close proximity to the floor.

Both ottoman and divan beds are fabulous choices and you can’t really go wrong with either, but which you choose will ultimately come down to your specific needs and preferences.
