Here are five ways to use an ottoman at home:

Use at the foot of your bed

Need a place to sit, tie your shoelaces, or just have a moment of peace? A foot-end ottoman provides the perfect solution. It’s also a great addition to a bedroom that lacks seating or space to place all your extra blankets or scatters at night. As an ottoman is a small and mobile furniture item, it can be moved around the room when needed. Top Tip: A beautifully upholstered ottoman can elevate your room and add a wonderful aesthetic quality to your bedroom.

Position it as a coffee table

A larger ottoman is the perfect size and height for use as a coffee table. It’s also a great way to add texture and colour to your living space. Top Tip: Style your coffee table ottoman with a tray and a few simple decor items to suit the season.

Use as a footstool

Long day at the office? Need a spot to unwind and kick back your legs? Place your ottoman below your favourite sofa or occasional chair and use it as a footstool. Top Tip: You will want to choose a smaller ottoman here. A compact ottoman will take up less room and be much easier to move around to your perfect spot.

Keep it as added seating

An ottoman or two in a living room can serve as additional seating when visitors come over.  Ottomans are small and mobile so will not limit your styling options. A beautiful, stylish ottoman can also become a statement piece in your room, so be sure to play around with the position and styling and allow it to add an elegant touch to your room. Top Tip: Incoporate ottomans into the overall design of your space and create a streamlined and sophisticated look.

Add one to a dressing room

Create a special spot to sit and admire your wares in the dressing room. An ottoman is a perfect choice here as it is smaller than other seating and can offer you the versatility you need in this space. Top Tip: Place a gorgeous round ottoman in the centre of your dressing room for added effect and create a beautiful focal point that doubles as a spot to sit while getting dressed.

Take good care of your ottoman and it will serve you well for years to come. Shop a beautiful selection of high-end ottomans in various finishes at House of Amica.
