Even though many will have multiple storage solutions like a wardrobe, chest of drawers and maybe even bedside tables too, they will still find that they run out of storage. This often leads to them having a cluttered bedroom, overflowing cupboards elsewhere in their home and sometimes an attic full of boxes and suitcases too.
Thankfully, there is one incredibly simple solution to your storage bed needs in the bedroom; ottoman bed bases. As you may know, an ottoman beds are designed so that the mattress and the top of the bed lifts up to reveal lots of convenient ottoman storage. Ottoman beds really are the perfect piece of functional, yet stylish, furniture and they can be very useful in every bedroom.

Spare bedding and towels
This is probably what the majority of homeowners store in their ottoman bed bases and it really is the perfect place to keep any spare bed linen and towels, and even spare pillows, duvets and throws too. Keeping these items under your bed can free up some space in your airing cupboard or prevent you from having to keep them on top of your freestanding wardrobe.
Many homeowners will also keep seasonal clothing in their ottoman bed bases too and under your bed frame is a brilliant place to store items of clothing that you won’t be wearing for a while. From coats and jumpers in the summer to shorts and swimwear in the winter, you can keep all of these items neatly out of the way until you need them again when the season changes.
Pairs of shoes
It isn’t uncommon for homeowners to store pairs of shoes in their ottoman base, especially if they have lots of pairs and nowhere else to put them. Lining up your shoes under your bed frame, whether these are high heels or trainers, is a great way to stop them from cluttering up the bottom of your wardrobe or your porch/hallway. You will then always know where pairs are when you’re looking for them too.
Bags and accessories
Similarly to shoes, lots of homeowners will store their bags and other accessories like belts and scarves in their ottoman storage bed base too. Doing so keeps them out of the way and prevents them from being sprawled out across your bedroom. You can purchase lots of storage boxes and dividers to use underneath your bed too, so you can ensure that everything has a home.
Children’s toys and books
