Ottomans and poufs have immense value in a home. Not only do they diversify the look in a room and help you round out your space, but they are incredibly functional as well. Whether you’re looking for a large ottoman for your living room in front of the sofa or you’re in search of a small ottoman for your bedroom, you’ll be able to find it here at City Furniture. Before you begin to browse our ottomans for sale, let’s take a look at some of the things you should keep in mind.
Before you decide on what ottoman you want to buy, consider exactly what you plan to use it. If you simply want one as a footstool where you can kick your feet up, make sure that it is the proper height so you can be comfortable when you stretch out on your sofa or favorite chair after a long day.
On the other hand, if you are looking for an ottoman to help you eliminate clutter, a storage ottoman is a great way to go. Most storage ottomans are simple ones where you have to lift to reveal the storage space. These ottomans are perfect for everything from your kids toys and spare linens to electronics and other living room essentials.
If you are thinking about using a cocktail ottoman as a coffee table, make sure that you choose one that’s firm enough for you to actually hold your cocktails, beverages and reading material comfortably. For instance, a tufted chesterfield ottoman may not be best for a coffee table because it’s hard for wine glasses to sit comfortably on them.
One of the most popular uses for ottomans is their ability to double as extra seating. Whether you choose a leather ottoman that adds modern flair when hosting family and friends or you invest in a round storage ottoman that’s big enough to seat two, the versatility of ottomans give you endless option.
If you are looking for alternatives to traditional ottomans, you have several options to choose from. A pouf ottoman, is similar in that it can be sat on and can work in any room in your home. However, poufs are softer and won’t function well as a coffee table. Another option is an upholstered bench. Benches are a great way to diversify your seating options and function well in your living room or bedroom. You can even invest in a storage ottoman bench that offers the best of both worlds. Remember, to choose the material and color that best showcases your personal style and unique taste.
