Buying an ottoman with some sort of storage space included is really a great idea as it gives you the opportunity to quickly tidy the room when guests unexpectedly arrive. It also provides you with space where odd items that do not really belong in any other area can be safely stowed until they are no longer needed. You can also designate drawers for storing keys, shoe polishing supplies or remote controls.
Obviously an Ottoman should not be used as a coffee table without utilizing a serving tray on top as soft material and hot liquid drinks do not make a good combination. The answer is simple. Use a serving tray when you have guests and need a place to serve refreshments. Obviously be careful if you do have young children as the hot drinks will be at their height level. The more common uses of an ottoman are as a footstool or if large enough, a day bed but sometimes they will double up as a seat. If you have more guests than chairs, I am sure younger people won't mind using it as something to sit on. It won't be comfortable for long periods of time as it doesn't have the back support but it will do in an emergency.
