Children's Bedroom Ottomans and Footstools
With so many designs to choose from when shopping for children's bedroom ottomans and footstools, you need to choose one that's the perfect blend of pretty and practical.
Few items of furniture offer the flexibility of a child's bedroom ottoman, which combines the benefits of concealed storage with a comfortable padded seat on which your child can sit or rest their feet on.
Simply lift the lid to reveal a large hidden storage chamber, where their toys, books, video games and clothing can be kept neat and tidy, and out of view. This is ideal in box rooms or where you're pushed for wardrobe or drawer storage room, plus it teaches children the importance of tidying away after themselves when playtime is over.
While not having the storage benefits of an ottoman, a footstool can sit at the foot of your son or daughter's bed, being used as a comfortable rest for their little legs, or as a seat on which they can relax to read or play with their games consoles.
These may be a traditional 4-legged chair style footstool, a large, padded pouffe, or a wider bench. They can also be teamed up with an armchair or sofa as a place to keep your feet raised.
The seating area of both ottomans and footstools can be cushioned with fabric, velvet, leather or faux leather, or simply solid wood or metal. While not as comfortable, a solid-seat ottoman or footstool is easier to clean.
Portability is a big benefit of bedroom ottomansand footstools, since they can be moved anywhere in the room (unlike heavier furniture), or even used in other rooms of the home. Many come with wheels on the base for easy room to room moving.
They're not just versatile as seats and footrests, but as tables too. A hard topped ottoman can be the perfect bedside table for a child's low bed a great place to put a bedside lamp and alarm clock.
