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 big increase in popularity in recent years, and for good reason.
An ottoman is an extremely versatile piece and does more than provide a comfortable place to prop your feet up. It enhances your home’s overall style and adds a touch of class and sophistication to any space. Depending on which ottoman you choose, it can also provide additional storage space or double as a coffee table. Here are just a few reasons why you should buy an ottoman to add to your home décor.
1. They Can Be Used in Any Room
While your living or family room may be the first place that comes to mind when you think about where to put an ottoman, they work well in virtually any space. Place a 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 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 with a custom ottoman. The options are truly limitless.
2. Colorful Ottomans Make Perfect Accent Pieces
You already have your large furniture pieces, like a sofa, recliners, club chairs, 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 design one that will help you achieve your desired look. We offer ottomans in up to 100 different colors. We also offer life-friendly upholstery options, like Crypton stain-repellent fabric.
3. They’re Multifunctional
Sure, you can get an ottoman that only functions as 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 space is limited, multifunctional furniture pieces are extremely useful.
4. 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 an ottoman 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 style.
5. Ottomans Provide Extra Seating
Even though they aren’t designed or marketed as seating, ottomans are a great piece to have around when you need extra seating. 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 and still have an extra spot for your guests when you need it.
6. 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 their 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 little ones.
