5 Reasons You Should Have A Storage Ottoman

Looking for a solution to declutter your space? A storage ottoman might just be the answer to all your problems. Combining form and function, this piece of furniture brings organization back into your home. 

The ottoman was first designed in modern-day Turkey as a circular padded seat. By late 18th century the design was brought into Europe, making it’s way into every boudoir in Paris. It wasn’t until the late 19th century that furniture designers developed the product to give the seat a storage space and since then it has become a common household item. 

If you don’t already own a storage ottoman in your home, then we hope we can convince you as we look at how this accessory can elevate your rooms in more ways than one. 

1. Offers an easy storage solution.

Maximizing your space is key, especially if you’re living in a smaller space. Instead of overpowering your home with a large chest of drawers or unattractive storage bags, a storage ottoman serves as a practical solution without compromising on style. It’s easy to throw in any loose items that you don’t want on show and is sturdy enough to take enough weight without the potential of the product falling apart.


2. Use as extra seating.

If you’re hosting guests and in need of a spare seat, then this product can come to the rescue. As the ottoman originates as a seat first and foremost, it should be structured to take the weight of someone sitting on it and still be comfortable. This is a great alternative for an office or vanity chair where you can store any equipment or beauty products without taking up too much space.

3. Doubles up as coffee table and footrest.

Give your living room a stylish update with the addition of an ottoman. The functionality of this product stretches beyond seating and storage, serving as a coffee table. By simply adding a tray to the surface you can place decor such as candles, vases, books or drinks and snacks. Want to put your feet up and relax after a long day? Remove the tray and use the ottoman as a footrest. Use the storage compartment to add some throws for extra comfort.


4. A great addition to any room.

From the lounge to the bedroom or entryway, this really is one of the most versatile products to keep in your home. A perfect solution to storing all those shoes lying around at the front door, decluttering the kids room by hiding away toys, or a space to keep extra sheets in your bedroom. You can literally have a storage ottoman in any or every room.


5. Adds to the styling of your home.

With a wide range of colour, materials and structures, an ottoman can serve as a statement centrepiece or as a stylish addition to your rooms. Blend this accessory seamlessly with your interior style and choose a model which compliments the rest of your furniture.
