What Is An Ottoman Base?
We manufacture all kinds of different sized bed bases. An Ottoman Base consists of a hollow inside for storage and a gas lift top. The opening and closing function is assisted with the use of pre fitted pistons. Bed Factory wooden ottomans are made using wood for two reasons, 1, it makes the base strong and sturdy. 2, your stored items are kept off the floor. The best example of this is our end opening ottoman base.
Some of our cheaper ottoman beds have a fabric bottom. Your items are still kept off the floor, but the frame is not as strong or as sturdy.
Choosing The Right Size Ottoman
Creating space in your bedroom is becoming more important, especially with smaller bedrooms. An ottoman bed is the perfect storage solution. Our most popular size is a double size ottoman bed (4ft6), with king size being a close second.
Many of our customers also choose a single size ottoman bed. These are great for smaller bedrooms & box rooms. Our popular side opening ottoman bed is perfect when the bed is being placed against a wall. The storage top lifts up allowing easy access to the inside of the bed.
Attaching a Headboard
With our selection of storage bed frames, the headboard is part of the frame, making assembly straight forward. Our Ottoman bases need very little assembly. Each Half of the base connects using joining bars, whilst a headboard fits into the pre drilled holes. These are easy to locate by looking for our headboard bolt stickers. All our headboards will fit and all you need to consider is your style and colour. You van view our full range of headboards in our headboards section.
The Bed Factory Side Opening Ottoman comes with spacers. These allow the side lift to open easily clearing the headboard as it opens.
What Is The Best Mattress For An Ottoman bed?
The majority of our mattresses are great for all our bases. We recommend a pocket sprung mattress, being heavier, they make closing the top easier. Our end opening ottoman and side opening ottoman base can hold up to 23 stone in weight. Anything over this, call our sales team, and we will build a custom reinforced ottoman base for you.
Our end opening & side opening ottoman bases come with solid tops. This means you don't need to worry about slats affecting the comfort of the mattress.
Ottoman Bed Assembly
All our ottoman bed frames come with step by step instructions. Including the ones made in our factory, Yet Bed Factory Ottomans are much easier to put together. A single ottoman bed comes in one piece with everything connected and ready to go. For a double and king size ottoman bed, there are 2 parts to connect using the joining bars provided. Arriving in two parts allows for easy movement and transportation to your room of choice.
