Maximise Storage Space With Our Side Opening Ottoman Storage Beds

Whether you’re looking to de-clutter your bedroom or need somewhere to safely store items from around the house, our ottoman beds are the ideal solution. They provide much needed storage space without compromising on character or style. Choose from our classic Chesterfield ottoman storage beds with a gorgeous grey velvet finish or if you’re looking for a more modern style, we’ve got you covered too.


A Side Opening Ottoman Storage Bed is a type of bed that incorporates a unique integrated storage space beneath the mattress. What sets it apart is its side-opening mechanism, providing easy access to the storage compartment. Unlike traditional ottoman beds that open from the foot or the end of the bed, the side-opening feature allows for more convenient use in rooms with limited space or specific layout constraints.

The storage area is hidden within the base of the bed and fully integrated into the bed frame, so it won’t take up any more space in your bedroom. All our ottoman beds come with gas assist pistons which make lifting the mattress easy to access the storage space within. The lifting mechanism takes the weight of the bed, so you only need to give the base a light pull upwards, and it will safely hold the bed space open for as long as you need to access the storage.

Side opening ottoman storage beds are available in a range of sizes to suit your needs. Whether you have a cosy bedroom or a spacious master suite, you can find the perfect fit among the various size options. 

The larger the bed, the larger the storage space underneath, so with our super king side opening ottoman beds, you get the largest integrated storage space.

The available sizes include:

  • 3ft Single
  • 4ft Small Double
  • 4ft 6in Double
  • 5ft King Size
  • 6ft Super King

With such diverse sizes, it's easy to find a side opening ottoman storage bed that fits seamlessly into any room in your home. 

All our beds within the ottoman range are designed and manufactured with our customers in mind. We understand that you may be a little wary of the assembly process when it comes to an ottoman bed, due to the fact it has storage space too, but don’t worry, our side opening ottoman beds are quick and easy to assemble.

Our ottoman beds use ‘standard’ mattresses, so all you need to ensure is that it’s the right size for the bed that you choose and that its comfort levels suit your sleep preferences. 

First of all consider the firmness level of the mattress. If you like to ‘sink’ into your mattress, then a soft mattress could be the one for you, however if you require more support when sleeping, a firm mattress is the way to go. If you want the best of both worlds, why not consider a medium-firm mattress, which provides a nice balance of the two? 

Next up, consider what position you sleep in, certain mattress types will suit side sleepers more than they will back sleepers for example and vice versa.

Then pay attention to the mattress material. Memory foam mattresses are known for their pressure-relieving properties, while pocket sprung mattresses offer excellent support and motion isolation. 

By carefully considering these factors, you can choose a mattress that complements your ottoman bed and provides you with a restful night's sleep. Here at Aspire, we have a wide range of mattresses to choose from that are designed to suit all sleeping styles, so you’re sure to find the right mattress for you.

As with anything, there are always ‘disadvantages’, but it depends on your needs. Our side opening ottoman beds are a brilliant option for anyone looking to sleep in comfort whilst providing additional storage space within their home. But they can be more expensive than its similar contemporary, the divan bed for example. 

Divan beds provide storage in the form of drawers in the base of the bed, however they generally provide less storage space than an ottoman does. So it depends what your priorities are when it comes to choosing between the two.

The other thing to consider with an ottoman bed is that it will be a lot heavier to move around your bedroom with any items stored within it. So you may need to spend time emptying it first before any re-location. But the ottoman bed will be able to store a lot more than a divan bed, so you must consider your storage requirements before purchasing either. Both ottoman and divan beds are fantastic choices for anyone looking to take advantage of additional storage space and benefit from a luxurious and stylish new bed.
