When considering what type of ottoman best suits your interior scheme decide how you will want to use it first. Will you want to keep your feet up on it for example or use it solely for decorative purposes? Perhaps you will use it as an additional seat for guests or to store things on. Whatever you decide, it's important that you choose an ottoman with the right materials and features for your specific needs.
There are very few furniture pieces that can offer a place to sit, a place to kick your feet up and rest your legs or place to set a tray of drinks and snacks upon. As a matter of fact, there's really only one such versatile furnishing and that, is the ottoman. With so many uses, it's no wonder it can sometimes take quite a beating and begin to look old, weathered and ready to be put out to pasture (or into the nearest dumpster.) Since décor designers understand how much people love their favorite and most multi-purpose furnishing, cleverly (and thankfully) they came up with the ottoman slipcover.
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.
A black ottoman won't just add style and glamour to your room but it can also help with storage issues. Some models open up to reveal a handy storage unit for magazines, games or even bedding. It helps keep your front room tidy but yet things are at hand if you need them. It is definitely worth looking at this option when making your purchase.
