Ottomans are not all made alike! For many people the term ottoman conjures up images of a bland dark coloured piece of furniture with little practical use. However ottomans these days come in a variety of shapes colours and sizes and can be adapted for a variety of practical uses. Ottomans can be upholstered in a variety of fabrics and can be made to match your existing furniture or come included as part of a new furniture suite. There is no reason why you cannot find or create exactly the right ottoman for your needs theme and lifestyle.
Standard ottomans are basically footrests for an armchair or easy chair. That is all they are made to do. When some one says "Put your feet up and take a load off" they are really telling you to sit down in a comfortable chair relax and rest your feet on the ottoman that is in front of the chair.
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.
