What exactly is an ottoman bed?

An ottoman bed is a type of bed designed with built-in storage space beneath the mattress. The storage area is accessible by lifting the bed frame at the foot end or side, with the entire mattress base lifting up, similar to the mechanism of a lid on a chest or a hinged door. This provides a large, hidden storage space that is ideal for storing bedding, clothing, or other personal items, which can be especially useful in smaller bedrooms or for individuals needing additional storage space.

Ottoman beds are popular for their efficient use of space and sleek design. They can be made from various materials, including wood, metal, and fabric, and come in a range of styles and colors to match different bedroom decors. The lifts for the mattress platform are typically equipped with gas springs or hydraulic lifting mechanisms to make it easy and safe to open and close the storage space.
