Storage Ottomans are decorative pieces of furniture made to complement a room's style and to rest your feet on; they are also highly functional pieces of furniture, capable of storing various items. Attractive to look at and practical, storage ottomans are useful in many rooms. Place one in your hall to store your winter hats, scarves and gloves, in the living room to store additional pillows or in the bedroom to store clothing or bedding.
Types of Use
Storage ottomans provide additional style for your home whilst concealing clutter. Typically they have a hinged top that opens to provide access to a storage compartment inside. They have numerous uses and are perfect for subtly storing items that you don't want to have out in the open.
They are ideal for a child's bedroom for keeping toys and games tidy, whilst at the same time providing a comfortable place to sit and relax. Perhaps you are low on space to keep your extra bed linen and blankets, a storage ottoman would easily look in place at the foot of a bed or fit comfortably in a hall area out of the way, whilst adding a touch of character to your home.
Classic designs or beautifully upholstered storage ottomans make fantastic additions to any room and are useful places to store remote controls, books and magazines whilst doubling up as extra seating.
