We spend over a third of our lives sleeping, so it’s important to make sure you invest on quality ottoman beds that you will love. It may seem that choosing a ottoman bed is easy. However, it's a more difficult decision to make than you might initially think. There are generally three things to consider when looking for a new bed: size, style and price. Whilst it’s easy to get a cheap pine or metal frame, you can pretty much count on the bed not lasting very long. Sure, one of the above might be fine for a seldom-used guest bedroom, but that would never work for a child’s room. Buy the best you can afford and treat a bed like an heirloom piece of furniture you can potentially pass on to your relatives. Are you short on storage? Investigate your options with a divan or ottoman style. Also, you should think about how heavy the bed frame is and ease of assembly if you don’t live on the ground floor.
