I bet that if you stand in the middle of your living room, you will spot that little piece of furniture that looks so good that all of a sudden you get tons of ideas on using for something more than just for what it is meant. Yes, I’m talking about the ottoman – the piece of furniture I actually had an epiphany about after having two really strong coffees today.
I mean, how can this cuteness of furniture be used just to rest your legs on? And in the fury of caffeine energy, tons of free time and brainstorming about the ottoman, I came up with a few ideas on how to use it for something more than just that. If you do not have one, trust me, after you read my ideas, you will look for ottomans for sale and will get yourself one (if you ask me, it’s a shame everyone does not not have such a versatile piece in their homes).
The Cutest Storage Solution!
There’s nothing like the feeling of comfortably positioning yourself on the sofa, stretching your legs on the ottoman, putting on some chill music and pouring a glass of wine to go with. Perfect work week night. But what’s even better, is having an ottoman with a hinged top where you can store items! Sure the idea of relaxing is great, but what’s even better is having a pillow and blanket within your arm’s reach when you actually need them. Or, if you have guests coming over and your kids’ toys are all over the place – the ottoman is here to save the situation!
An Extra Coffee Table
A good ottoman can be used as an extra coffee table when you need one, or even better, be used as a coffee table where there isn’t one. For instance, you want to have your coffee on the sofa beside the window wall but you do not have a suitable coffee table for that purpose. Well, in that case hurry up to a store that offers ottomans for sale and get one preferably on wheels, so you can move it wherever you want!
Extra Seating Space
My ottoman is square, but there are also rectangular ones and those are perfectly suitable to accommodate a lot of people. They often come with a simple table suitable for that height, so when you host a gathering for a lot of people, it can really come in handy. Plus, it looks very fancy and it adds a modern tone to your room.
A Showpiece With Colour
The ottoman does not necessarily need to have any purpose. You can simply use it as a showpiece to enhance your room décor, or to add more colour to a room with neutrals. Imagine a beige, white or black and gray themed room with an ottoman in purple, red, green or any other vibrant colour that breaks the monotony. Lovely, right? Add a few nice decorations in the room and voila, a change that’s actually appealing.
These are just few of the ideas that came to mind and I am willing to share with you. Of course some of the kinkiness that involves the ottoman will be reserved for me and my hubby, but feel free to share any ideas that you have on this piece of furniture.
