The Ottoman: More Than Just a FootrestJuly 9th, 2012 | Posted by in Living Room Furniture
We often view the ottoman as just an add-on to our living room furniture. An accent piece to our comfy sofas and couches. But the ottoman can be so much more than a footrest, although it does its job extraordinarily well. Many ottomans double as a storage unit. This is a wonderful option for people tight on space. It also happens to be the perfect spot to store blankets and throws, pillows, and any other items you don’t want visible in your living room. Smaller cube ottomans are ideal for loveseats and those with sectional sofas might want to upgrade to a larger square or rectangular one.
Oversize ottomans can double as a small coffee table or end table. Try putting a piece of glass on top to create your own table. This offers a custom look and style, something you won’t see in anyone else’s home. If you don’t want a glass table, use a tray to place decor items or as a place to store all of your pesky remotes.
The ottoman is not only comfortable, it’s functional and those are the best pieces of decor to place in the home. Never feel limited to a furniture’s intended use. Being creative is easy when you shop at Everything Furniture.
