Ottomans can also provide much needed additional seating for your children. Because they are smaller than a standard armchair or sofa they can fit perfectly in a child's room and most children will love sitting on them. You can brighten up the colours of your ottoman by purchasing separate loose covers or simply request them to be upholstered in specific child-friendly colours and materials to match their bedrooms. It's worth also choosing a material that is easy to wash if you are buying an ottoman for your child!
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.
Ottomans are foot rests that are nicely upholstered (in most cases) in such material as leather or the like. They are a wonderful addition to any home. Ottomans are available in all sizes - starting from standard size to small and even to oversize. Many beautiful ottomans are covered with leather. They are mostly used as storage benches, and footrests are constructed with a sturdy hardwood frame. They are mostly wrapped with luxurious leather or beautiful designer fabrics.
If you are considering adding an ottoman to your room set, your primarily consideration should be to closely coordinate the style of the piece with your existing furniture and the general look and feel of the room. Ultimately, ottomans are home accessories, so you should take care when selecting a new piece to contemplate the existing design principles which guide your room design. Depending on whether you prefer a classic or contemporary look, a variety of fabric options, colours and styles are available which should prove well suited to your space. However, if you can't find want you are looking for when browsing the high street, you may wish to consult with an interior designer who will be well placed to advise with an objective eye on what will look best in your room.
