To Ottoman or not to Ottoman, that is the only burning question. The only answer should be to Ottoman of course. What is an Ottoman though? What are the benefits?

An Ottoman is a form of furniture that normally has a head but no back, although in some cases it might not have either. They are generally sold as coordinating furniture with arm chairs or gliders. They can also be used as and called a Footstool. They can be small or rather large in size and are the hidden gem when it comes to furniture. In fact, I can’t imagine anything else to rest my feet on while watching the football on a Saturday afternoon. Don’t go over looking this handy piece of furniture especially when it comes to space saving.

They are a great idea for small townhouses and complexes, as well as open floor plan homes that join onto other rooms that might share seating. They allow the flexibility to add seating to a shared space, while having the beauty of also being used as a standalone unit. They were created with the intent of having a place to rest your feet on. The beauty of this is that can be as small as a foot rest and as large as a 3-seater couch.

How often do you find yourself looking for the TV remote? Are your children’s reading books scattered over the floor? What about your favourite TV series box set just gathering dust in the corner of the lounge? Well why not get yourself an Ottoman with a hinged top? This will have a double purpose as you now can store all those small pesky items found in a lounge that could often leave the room looking cluttered while having the comfortability for your weary feet.

Shapes and size configurations make many varieties of Ottomans fun as well as visually appealing. If you purchase numerous pieces of Ottomans, you could now play around with different styles and set ups in a room changing the look and feel in the matter of minutes. If you find yourself trying to save space, Ottomans are the perfect solution for seating that be taken out when needed. Ottoman benches that have rollers underneath them make this type of seating ideal for when entertaining. Then once they not needed again, you can simply roll them back out of sight to open up the space.

They in more recent years have become larger as has most things. With this adding versatility to it, many people now use them as coffee tables instead which once again create more space as now you don’t have a wooden coffee table and an Ottoman floating around. They are children friendly as can be dressed up or down to your requirement so I dare you to find a reason not to have one in your lounge.
