Is there anything better than kicking your feet up at the end of a long day? We don’t think so! Relaxing on a comfortable sofa or in your favorite chair is a great way to unwind, and it’s even better when you have a comfy place to rest your feet. Ottomans have seen a huge surge in popularity in recent years, and for good reason.
A nice ottoman does more than provide a comfortable place to prop your feet up. It also enhances your home’s overall style and adds a touch of class and sophistication to any space. Depending on which one you choose, it can also add some much-needed storage space. At Club Furniture, we offer a wide range of colorful ottomans to suit any taste. Here are just a few of the reasons why we think an ottoman is an essential addition to your home décor.
They Can Be Used in Any Room
While your living room may be the first place that comes to mind when you think about where you put an ottoman, they work well in virtually any room of the home. Place a nice leather or fabric cocktail ottoman at the foot of your bed, and it will serve as a perfect spot to sit when you are putting on your socks and shoes in the morning. Put one in your home office so you have a place to kick your feet up while you are working or taking phone calls. Spruce up your library, man cave, family room, media room, or any other spot in your home. The options are truly limitless.
Colorful Ottomans Make Perfect Accent Pieces
You already have your large furniture pieces, like a sofa, recliners, armoire, etc. If you are looking for a great way to add a pop of color to change the look and feel of a room without replacing larger furniture pieces, a colorful ottoman is a perfect solution. Fabric cocktail ottomans come in a rainbow of colors, so it’s easy to find one that will help you achieve your desired look. At Club Furniture, we offer ottomans in up to 100 different colors. We also offer life-friendly upholstery options, like Crypton stain-repellent fabric.
Sure, you can get an ottoman that is only an ottoman, but there are also a lot of great multifunctional options. Cocktail ottomans double as coffee tables or benches. Invest in a large rectangular ottoman, and you will have a piece that’s just as perfect for playing board games on as it is for propping up your feet. Many ottomans also open up so you can store blankets, pillows, and other items inside them. If you need furniture for a room where the square footage is limited, multifunctional furniture pieces are extremely useful.
They Never Go Out of Style
While design trends come and go, a nice ottoman never truly goes out of style. After all, they were originally invented as places to rest your feet, and that’s a need that will never change. When you choose one in a neutral color or opt for a timeless upholstery option like leather, you can rest assured knowing that your ottoman will look amazing—no matter what’s currently “in.”
Ottomans Provide Extra Seating
Even if they aren’t designed or marketed as seating, ottomans are great to have around when you need an extra place for someone to sit. A small, round ottoman works well as a seat for one person, while a larger one can accommodate two or more. This is especially helpful in apartments and small rooms where there isn’t enough space for additional chairs. You can use your ottoman as a footstool most of the time but still have an extra spot for your guests when you need it.
They’re Great for Kids
If you have small children, a cocktail ottoman is a perfect alternative to a coffee table. While coffee tables have hard surfaces and sharp corners, cocktail ottomans are upholstered in soft materials and feature rounded edges. If your little one bumps her head on a fabric or leather ottoman, it will hurt a lot less than bumping into a wooden coffee table! Plus, you can have your ottoman upholstered in kid-safe, washable, and stain-repellent fabrics. They look great, can handle a lot of wear and tear, and are safer for the little ones.
