5 Reasons Every House Should Have at Least One Ottoman

The versatility and storage capacity of ottomans make them a useful addition to any home. They can be used as:

Extra seating
Their cushion top makes them an space-friendly piece of furniture. Many can even be tucked away underneath other furniture like coffee tables, and pulled out when extra seating is needed.
Footstools are probably the most common usage for ottomans. They can help you put your feet up and relax after a rough day.
Coffee Table
Flat topped ottomans can easily be used as coffee tables. Using colorful ottomans like this burgundy piece will add a pop of color to your living room.  

Entrance and Hallway Bench
Longer ottomans can be a sleek touch to an entryway or hallway.  Plus, it can be handy in storing supplies like unused umbrellas or light jackets.
Bedroom Storage Chest
Adding an ottoman to your bedroom set is perfect for storing clothes, shoes, or even small mementos and trinkets. The fact that it can be multi-functional for seating is just a bonus.
