50 Creative DIY Ottoman Ideas | Ultimate Home Ideas

Ottomans are awesome! There are so many uses and configurations of ottomans that you should know about. They were designed as footstools, and that's their most common use, but the shapes and sizes make them a versatile piece to have in your home. An ottoman can be purchased as an armchair or loveseat in the same fabric or leather. You can find them in leather, denim, chenille, wood and leather and metal and leather - great combinations to fit almost any room design.

During a party or get-together, many people are having a good time, but some are on wheels, making it easy to "pull up an ottoman" for a chat together. Here are a few tips for use when buying an ottoman.

1. Use an ottoman for a dining room table seating , The idea behind the building is not so good as it is. You may just use one loveseat sized ottoman or two or three smaller versions. It looks like a bench or chairs in the breakfast nook or a formal dining room. The material covering the ottoman should match the same style as the dining table.

Second A versatile coffee table is on ottoman with a tray on top , Try using an ottoman as a living room table where you may place the TV remotely, magazines or drink glasses. This can be used as a coffee table when you have company.

Third Buy more than one ottoman , One ottoman may not be much more if one person likes to read his or her feet while reading the paper or television, especially if you do not have a reclining sofa. You can either use two matching ottomans or different fabrics or leather colors as the style of the room. Do not do the double or triple pairs though - it's not great to have two ottomans, two chairs and two side tables that match. Two pairs is the max for matching for a room.

4th Double duty ottomans , - Because ottomans are typically large cubes, many times they can serve as storage compartments for throws, extra pillows and magazines. Ottomans are wicker or vinyl with a hinged lid.

If you are considering buying an ottoman for a foot rest, good for you. Plenty of fashion, think about buying an ottoman!
