For new residents or those just looking to add to their existing home décor, a storage ottoman is a must have piece of furniture for anyone that lives in an apartment. Compact and versatile, storage ottomans serve multiple purposes for smaller living spaces.
Aside from additional storage space for items like blankets, books, magazines, DVDs, CDs and other household items, these ottomans make excellent coffee or accent tables by simply adding a tray to the top. And of course, they can also serve as a footrest. Ottomans can also be used in any room for additional seating or at the foot of a bed to lay things on, like your outfit for the next day.
With so many colors, fabrics, textures and sizing options to choose from, today’s storage ottomans are far from boring and can instantly spruce up the décor in any room. No matter what your personal style is, there is something suitable for every lifestyle. Casa Sugar and Apartment Therapy recommend several options for storage ottomans including the following:
