Your living space should call out to you and invite you to sit down, relax, and put your feet up. Nothing does this better than a comfortable and well positioned ottoman in your lounge room, bedroom, sun room, or other special corner of your home.
An ottoman is a multipurpose piece of furniture. It can be used for seating, as a footrest, for storage, or as a stand-in table for magazines or phones. The most common type of ottoman is the storage ottoman similar to a chest and used for storing things. Ottomans are useful as living room furniture, bedroom furniture, basement furniture, or in the playroom. Ottomans can also be part of a matching lounge set for formal lounge room appeal.
Ottomans come in different shapes to meet the needs of your room.
The ottoman has come a long way in today’s homes and there are lots of uses for the cushion you rest your feet upon. Ottomans may be the missing piece of your lounge room puzzle, so don’t overlook this handy space-saving furniture. Here are 9 ways to use an ottoman to enhance your room.
Ottomans were originally invented as comfortable foot stools. This type of ottoman is still extremely popular as an accessory with recliner chairs, armchairs, accent chairs, and lounge suites. Footstool ottomans are smallish and purpose-built for feet rather than storage. However, all ottomans are multi-functional. Great storage ottoman choices at Amart Furniture include:

Ottomans are relatively low furnishings originally designed for resting your feet on. They are very popular as apartment living room furniture. A small storage ottoman is generally no higher than a coffee table or side tables. It’s the right height to act as an additional table or chair whenever required. Remember not to stack your ottoman too full or it will become difficult to move.
This will depend on the way you use the ottoman. If it is mostly a footstool, you will need to measure your room and couch to ensure there is enough space. Ottomans can go in almost any room, making them a valuable addition to home storage space. Buy ottomans online or in-store at Amart.
Wherever possible, choose ottomans that multi-task for both comfort and storage solutions. For example, an end of bed ottoman for extra bedding, or a storage ottoman for shoes near the front door.
