OoRoo Foldable Ottoman Bed Solves Our No Guest Room Dilemma

Sample DisclosureOoRoo Foldable Ottoman Bed Review

Three years ago when we decided to move from our big 4-bedroom house with finished basement to this little tiny house under 1,000 square feet, we knew there would be some things that would change. One of them is that we no longer have a guest room. With only two bedrooms in the house, one is our bedroom and the other is our office. That means no guest room and no guest bed.

OoRoo Foldable Ottoman Bed Solves the No Guest Room Dilemma

That is until now! We recently received an OoRoo space-saving ottoman bed. It is exactly what it sounds like – an ottoman that converts into a bed for guests. The OoRoo came in a long rectangular box, which confused me a bit, but I soon learned that the mattress was packed in a vacuum-sealed bag that compacted it into a small box. (It was pretty fun to break that seal and watch it fluff up into a thick, cozy mattress.)

OoRoo Foldable Ottoman Bed Small Spaces

The OoRoo is customizable to coordinate with your decor with a wide range covers in many different colors and styles. We chose a black leatherette cover to fit in with the white, gray and black colors of our living room. The piece will spend most of its time as an ottoman, but when guests come over we just have to take off the cover and fold out the mattress.

The OoRoo also has a handle built into its side to make it easy to move around the room, to another room or even to another location. That makes it really easy for us to move it to our office for unfolding, giving our guest a bit of privacy. And the portability also means it can go out of the house. After feeling how comfortable the bed is, my husband declared that we are going to take it with us on our next cross-country trip to spread out in the back of the SUV to sleep during breaks in the driving!

You can see from my photos that our cats were instantly curious about the OoRoo ottoman. Well, luckily for them, OoRoo also makes a great pet bed as well as a portable OoRoo beach that would be perfect for camping.

Oh, heads up: all OoRoo orders are shipped FREE right to your door for FREE (within the continental US).

    This is such a cool piece of furniture. I love that it is “double duty”. It’s the perfect way to make sure you have something comfortable for your guests!

  2. I coudl have used it this weekend. I had a big family party and we almost didn’t have enough sleeping spots.

  3. dsargen3@gmail.com' Catherine S says:

    This looks like a great ottoman and bed. I love that they also offer free shipping.

  4. The OoRoo sounds like a great piece of furniture to have. I would like to buy one for when we entertain guests!

  5. carawling@hotmail.com' Cynthia R says:

    I love this option, less work than a inflatable mattress, though I guess you do lose your ottoman storage.

  6. I think an ottoman that converts to a spare bed is pure genius! We need one of these for our house. It would be perfect for the kids’ sleepovers.

  7. So convenient that this folds up! We don’t have a guest room and could use one of these!

  8. I would love to have one of this Ooroo! Very convenient and looks great.

  9. What an awesome product and a great way to save space. Something like this would really come in handy for those times the kids have friends sleep over.

  10. This is really neat, I love how easy it is to use and it is pretty styling for a small little bed idea. Love it!

  11. This looks like a great bed, not for a guest room, but for our family room. My kids have summer movie nights and fall asleep on the couches- this bed would be the perfect solution.

  12. Having versatile furniture like this is really helpful. It would be nice to have a backup bed in our living room.

  13. sixtimemom@gmail.com' Jeanine says:

    Wow! Talk about a great idea. That is super convenient. We don’t have room for an extra bed in our house but this? We could happily do! So cool.

  14. That is the coolest ottoman I have ever seen. I desperately need one of those. It is also perfect for tiny houses and living spaces.

  15. A foldable mattress is perfect for sleepovers and movie nights at home. I like that it’s lightweight and easy to store as well! It’s perfect to have at home, indeed. I would love to give this a try and see how the kids like it.

    I love that this mattress is not just something shoved in a box until you have to use it with your guests. The fact that it also serves an ottoman is awesome.

  17. rwilson0720@yahoo.com' Jennifer Henry-Novich says:

    What a great way to utilize space when you have a smaller place to stay. You guests will surely be comfortable, too!

  18. I absolutely love this idea. Perfect addition to the living room with a hidden second use as a bed. I LOVE the SUV idea

  19. I need this! I live in an apartment that’s about 1000 sq feet and we’ve been searching for ways to save room. We were thinking of a futon but this would be so much more ideal.

  20. This looks like a great space-saver! I like how there are a variety of covers to choose from.

  21. jewelwood55@gmail.com' Julie Wood says:

    This is so cool. To have an Ottoman that turns into a bed for guests or my son and daughters friends to sleep on when they spend the night. I think it is awesome!

    What a great idea this is. I like that you can choose a cover to match your décor. I would love one of these.
