When it comes to furniture, some pieces are meant to inspire beauty. There’s a fine art to both form and functionality. The ability to spice up your space with unique pieces can add mountains of value and depth to an otherwise monotone room. A. Rudin finds the ottoman to be a versatile piece that can really amplify your beautifying potential.
But having a luxury ottoman is just one thing; knowing what to do with it is another.
Check out our top 5 ideas for using an ottoman to add function, comfort, beauty, and fashion to your favorite home space.
1. Additional Seating
Ottomans are commonly known as footrests, but that doesn’t mean they have to be limited to that singular job description. You can provide an ottoman as a beautiful and comfortable space for additional seating. Your guests and family members can seek comfort with the ottoman, rather than scrambling to find another chair. Plus, it will give your living room more of an open-concept feel, especially since it’s so mobile.
Keep it out in the open as a shared stool, or prop it against the wall with a cushion to turn it into a miniature couch. There’s a reason the Huffington Post calls the ottoman “the most versatile piece in your home”!
2. More Storage Space
With an ottoman, you can hide things in plain side. More and more commonly, ottomans are being fabricated with a top that can be lifted up to reveal deep storage space inside. Use this to store pillows, blankets, cushions, books, or additional items you don’t want to lie around.
Its the perfect method for reducing clutter – and you can really expand on that image of the open-concept space. Looking to go ultra-modern? Want the minimalist look? The ottoman is probably one of the most useful pieces of furniture to provide all the functionality you need while being as sleek and elegant as ever.
3. Who Needs a Coffee Table?
Who needs a coffee table when an ottoman can do just the trick? Not only is an ottoman a great place for people to rest upon, but items can be rested upon it as well. Use it as a coffee table in place of another piece of furniture, especially if it’s an ottoman that provides a lot of space. No matter what your ottoman is made out of, you can display your books, food trays, or decorative centerpieces for better visual appeal.
4. Pure Showoff
Your ottoman is special enough that it can carry the room on its own. It’s a piece that you want to show off, and our A. Rudin experts can make sure of that. Not only does our extensive, high-end collection praise the beauty and multi-functionality of the ottoman, but it also provides a different versatility that you may never have had before.
Take advantage of the opportunity to display an ottoman in your room; no matter the size of your space, an ottoman can pull it together extremely well.
5. A Space For The Whole Family
Many homeowners like to attest to the child-friendliness of ottomans as well. Since most provide a plush, comfortable surface, they are easy for kids to play on as they join you for some much-deserved family time in the living room. They won’t hurt themselves on the soft surface, and their toys aren’t likely to cause any damage to this durable piece.
It’s a great idea to use an ottoman as a space to set up a board game so that you can keep your dining room space clean and free from clutter.
