Storage ottomans are just that: they are built for storage. The padded top is usually hinged and can open up to reveal an open space in heart of the ottoman in which people generally store blankets for use with the easy chair and ottoman. Many people use ottomans as tables and if they have a flat level surface so much the better. They can be used as coffee tables or benches.
Ottomans are no longer just a piece of furniture for you to put your feet on. Innovative designs have given the ottoman a number of uses. Dont be afraid to think creatively. You dont have to keep ottomans only in your living area; they can be used in any room to create a multi function cozy sitting area.
Because their main purpose is to put your feet up on them it is always advised to pick one that is upholstered in a dark leather vinyl or a fabric that can be easily cleaned. Light colors will pick up dirt as well as show signs of wear and tear over time so be sure to choose your ottoman accordingly. They will almost always have a sturdy hardwood frame especially if their purpose is to be used as a storage bench or footrest to ensure extra stability. Along with color it is also important to choose between the varied shapes that are offered including round and cubed varieties. Size is another key component to keep in mind depending on where you will be placing your ottoman will determine the size needed whether it is small medium or large.
