Wish I'd got one of these for the king size in the master bedroom now, maybe I will! This is exactly the base I was hoping for in a single and is an absolute godsend, giving us a huge amount of storage space compared to draws, especially in a room of limited space. The mechanism is easy to operate and opens effortlessly with one hand to about chest height allowing easy access. Loads of volume even for a single bed with a strong base so even heavier items can be stored, musical keyboard, books, linen, blankets. You can load it confident that the bottom won't break through, unlike a drawer. Material covering the base is also very attractive and pleasing. I highly recommend this Ottoman Base, best bade ever!
