We do have to start off by bringing attention to its name, we are not quite sure why it’s called the Sleepmasters “Hip Hop” ottoman bed but hey we don’t want to judge. Perhaps it has to do with the hopping and popping of the bed base when you open it.

What we particularly like about this full front ottoman bed beside the assisted gas-lifts are the additional centre supports or pillars which stand up in the storage area and help hold the bed base sturdy. There is ample space for storage in the 30cm compartment for your extra bedding or whatever else you will need to put away.

In terms of the sizes available and design, it can be ordered in a double or king size and comes only in a wooden finish.

The Sleepmasters ottoman bed is covered by a 1-year guarantee where they will repair or replace the bed frame during that time period. However, if you order a mattress from Bensons For Beds in combination with the ottoman you will then receive a 5-year guarantee.

IKEA ottoman beds are some of the most popular in the UK based on customer reviews. IKEA currently stock two models, the MALM ottoman bed and the GVARV ottoman bed. We had chosen to feature the MALM because it has way more customer testimonials and reviews to go buy. The main difference between the two is that the IKEA GVARV ottoman bed is finished in a grey fabric and is slightly more expensive.

Now that we have that out the way we can focus on the IKEA MALM ottoman bed and see why it’s so much more popular among customers.

This IKEA ottoman bed can be ordered in black/brown or a clean white finish. They have it available in the most commonly bought UK mattress sizes, double and king size. The storage compartment is complete with dividers and boxes to help keep track of the smaller items you may need to store away.
