Tools and Materials Needed

Before we start, gather the necessary tools and materials to make the assembly process smooth and hassle-free. You’ll typically require the following:

 Instruction manual (provided with your ottoman bed)

·         Allen wrench (usually included in the package)

·         Screwdriver (both flathead and Phillips)

·         Adjustable wrench

·         Rubber mallet or hammer

·         Measuring tape

·         Electric drill (optional)

·         Safety goggles and gloves (recommended)

Step 1: Preparing the Workspace

·         To ensure a comfortable and efficient assembly process, it’s crucial to set up a clean and spacious workspace. Follow these steps to prepare your area:

·         Clear the space: Move any furniture or objects that might hinder your movement during assembly. Create ample space around the bed frame for easy manoeuvrability.

·         Lay out the parts: Unpack the ottoman bed components and lay them out according to the instruction manual. This will help you identify and locate each part easily during assembly.

·         Read the instructions: Before you begin, carefully read through the manufacturer’s instructions. Familiarise yourself with the assembly steps and ensure you have a clear understanding of the process.

Step 2: Building the Frame

     The first stage of assembly involves constructing the frame of your ottoman bed. Follow these instructions:


Identify the sides

 Locate the headboard, footboard, and side panels. The instruction manual will provide clear labels for easy identification.

 Connect the panels

Using the appropriate screws and an Allen wrench or screwdriver, attach the side panels to the headboard and footboard according to the instructions. Ensure the panels are securely fastened.

 Reinforce the structure

Check the stability of the frame. If required, tighten the screws and bolts further to eliminate any wobbling. Stability is vital for safety and durability.

Step 3: Installing the Hydraulic Mechanism

·         The hydraulic mechanism allows easy lifting of the ottoman bed’s platform to access the storage space underneath. Here’s how to install it:

·         Position the hydraulic pistons: Attach the hydraulic pistons to the designated spots on the bed frame. Make sure they are aligned correctly to ensure smooth operation.

·         Connect the hinges: Attach the hinges to the designated positions on the bed frame and the platform. Use the appropriate screws and follow the instruction manual for guidance.

·         Test the lifting mechanism: Gently lift and lower the bed platform to ensure the hydraulic mechanism is functioning properly. If there are any issues, refer to the troubleshooting section in the instruction manual or contact customer support.

Step 4: Securing the Slats and Finishing Touches

·         The final stage involves securing the slats and adding any finishing touches to complete the assembly process. Follow these steps:

·         Install the slats: Lay out the slats provided and place them evenly across the bed frame. Depending on the model, they may require attaching with screws or fitting into pre-cut slots.

·         Check the support: Ensure the slats are properly secured and evenly distributed to provide optimal support for your mattress. Make any adjustments necessary to ensure a flat, even surface.

·         Tighten all screws: Double-check that all screws and bolts are securely tightened. This will enhance the stability and durability of your ottoman bed.

·         Clean up and enjoy: Remove any packaging materials and debris from the assembly process. Now, you can finally enjoy your newly assembled ottoman bed!
