Traditional bedrooms are the remit of standard bed frames, but you can boost storage considerably with a classic ottoman bed.
Ottoman beds use the entire underside of the mattress as storage space, with the mattress lifting via gas struts built into the frame.
Whether you love wood, leather, or fabric bed frames, our list below offers lots to love at fantastic prices. Read on to explore five classic ottoman beds.
1. Birlea Phoenix
The Birlea Phoenix makes a statement with a gorgeous grey and natural wood frame available in small double, double, and king sizes.
The oak effect headboard and footboard top rails complement the grey frame, which houses an end-lift ottoman base. The ottoman storage area is 27cm deep, giving you lots of space for bedding and other items.
Other features include a classic railed headboard to sit up against with a few pillows, and a low footboard so you can jump into bed.
The sprung slatted base works best with mattresses under 30cm thick (sprung slats bend and flex when you move around, providing bounce).
2. Milan Bed Company Como
If you like the classical appearance of the Birlea Phoenix, but not the grey and oak colour combination, the Milan Bed Company Como is perfect.
Available in plain grey or white and bursting with charm, the Milan Bed Company Como stands out with a shaker-style low footboard and a traditional slatted headboard, giving you a classic style that fits into any bedroom.
The end lift ottoman base offers up a storage depth of around 28cm, and the storage space extends to the floor to maximise practicality.
This ottoman bed has a sprung slatted base and is available in single, double, and king sizes – perfect for every bedroom in your home.
3. Milan Bed Company Hollywood
The Milan Bed Company Hollywood is a faux leather ottoman bed with a high-quality, authentic appearance. It stands out in black or white with unique diamante crystal detailing on the headboard and footboard.
The quilted stitch pattern and padding on this bed frame give it a timeless appeal that is perfect for traditional bedrooms. The storage space is 30cm deep to maximise space for bedding, and it has a sprung slatted base for extra responsiveness.
We love the padded headboard’s comfort when reading at night, and the faux leather can be wiped clean, making it easy to maintain.
4. Bedmr Aurora
The Bedmr Aurora is a beautiful fabric ottoman bed frame with a high headboard, low footboard, and a floating base. Dark wooden feet and dark grey upholstery give it a classic look that will suit traditional and eclectic bedrooms.
We love the padded and winged headboard design, with padding split into sections with a straight stitch. The ottoman storage space has a dedicated pan to keep things off the floor, and the low footboard is perfect for jumping into bed. If you want a stylish, comfortable bed frame, look no further. It has a sprung slatted base to improve responsiveness in all mattress types.
5. Aspire Chesterfield
If you love the classical appearance of sleigh beds, the Aspire Chesterfield gives you the look with a practical ottoman base.
Finished in plush, soft-touch silvery grey fabric, the Aspire Chesterfield is gorgeous with a scrolled footboard and headboard finished with buttons. You can even set the ottoman to open from either side of the bed frame.
This ottoman bed is available in single, small double, double, king, and super king sizes, so it’s perfect for all bedroom sizes and layouts.
