What is an ottoman bed?

An ottoman bed that has built-in storage that is discreet and hidden away underneath the mattress and between the box frames. You can access the storage space from either the side or the foot of the bed depending on which style of ottoman bed you have. The ottoman bed is lifted by a gas lift hydraulics system which makes it very to open and close the bed.

Are ottoman beds strong?

The answer to this question is yes ottoman beds are strong, well-made ottoman beds are both strong and durable and are made to stand the test of time. All ottoman beds are different so they each have their own capacity of weight they can support so it's important to check what that is before you are purchasing an ottoman bed. If you have chosen a well-made and sturdy ottoman bed, then there will be no apprehension as the weight of the mattress won't affect the other mechanisms of the bed such as the gas lift hydraulics.

In the end, the strength of an ottoman bed comes down to how strong the pistons that were used in the ottoman bed are. If you are looking to purchase an ottoman bed, then it's important to consider the number of pistons the bed has and how strong they are.

It's also necessary to have for the ottoman bed to have good quality metal struts. This is important because if you do not have metal struts and have plastic struts and brackets, they won't work that well and won’t correctly support the weight of the mattress and have a higher chance of failure. This is very dangerous as the failure could take place when the bed is being lifted.

How much weight can an ottoman bed handle?

A basic ottoman bed is designed to hold up to 40-60kg of the weight of a mattress and if you have a more durable heavier weight mattress then it will obviously weigh a lot more than 60kg.

How long does an ottoman bed typically last?

An ottoman bed can typically last up to 10 years, but this is if the bed is of high quality and has been taken care of during this time. During this time there will need to be some occasional observations of the bed including the gas lift hydraulics system to make sure it is working correctly. If there are any problems with items such as the brackets, hinges or pistons then they should be changed as this will also increase the longevity and life span of the ottoman bed.

Are ottoman beds comfortable?

Ottoman beds are like every other bed, the only difference is the storage space and additional mechanisms an ottoman bed has. You can purchase ottoman beds in a range of sizes, colours and fabrics which make them customisable so the bed you order is always up to your standard. The comfort of the bed usually always comes down to the mattress you have.
