With such a chaotic,
fast-paced world out there,
it makes sense that we want our homes to be simple
There's always something that's missing,
whether it's storage
or simply space.
If you're searching for practical home solutions,
I'd like to recommend the ottoman,
what some call "the chameleon of the furniture world."
Not only are they modern, stylish, and particularly bohemian,
they serve so many functions,
it's hard to believe!
7 Ways the Ottoman is the Most Functional Accent in Your Home
1. A Cozy Coffee Table
Tired of the typical wooden coffee table?
Want to think outside the box?
Ottomans are a great coffee table substitute!
Larger ottomans provide that curve that some rooms so desperately need.
They are the perfect place to set down a food tray,
or the TV remote...
and these coffee tables are also great foot rests.
Want an even more unique look?
Gather together a few smaller ottomans that fit together
and create an interesting,
geometric ottoman coffee table!
Or group a few ottomans separately
for the neat look above!
Not only does using a few ottomans for your coffee table
give a unique look,
it does also provide extra seating in your living room.
2. Dining Room Chairs? Please.
Wood dining room chairs can be clunky,
and inefficiently large.
Ottomans are so much more comfortable
and they will slide under your table with ease!
As you can see above,
the ottomans are so much more space effective
than the wicker dining room chairs.
Using ottomans for all four seats would really open up the space
and make it feel so much larger!
I love these blue ottomans that double as dining chairs!
They look extremely comfy,
and so stylish!
3. A dog bed?!
Yes, you heard me!
A comfy ottoman can double as,
or be transformed into a dog bed!
The ottoman above still serves as a foot rest,
but has a cute space to house the puppy!
I love that this dog bed is still stylish and functional for the human in the house.
Dog beds can be glaringly ugly,
but ottomans as dog beds?
I sense a new trend coming!
The dog bed ottoman above is super stylish
Don't the puppies look so comfy?!
4. Extra seating
Looking for extra seating
that is comfortable
but not invasive in your space?
Because ottomans come in so many different shapes,
they work well as seating
in any style home!
The ottomans above add a beautiful print to the space
and two extra seats!
Don't have extra room for ottomans to be spread out in the room at all times?
You can pick ottomans that will fit under your coffee table,
and store your extra seating there when they're not being used!
I'm loving these fluffy shag ottoman chairs!
5. A Convenient Foot Rest
One of my favorite functions of the ottoman
is using it as a foot rest.
Ottomans are the perfect height to rest your toes
after a long day!
Paired with an equally comfy looking chair,
the ottoman above looks like the perfect place
to sit back and relax!
Having your feet propped up
makes sitting activities
browsing the internet,
and watching a movie
all the more comfortable!
6. At the Foot of your Bed
Need a place to sit
when you're putting on your shoes in the morning?
Putting an ottoman
at the foot of your bed is a stylish solution
to a simple problem!
I love the look of the pink ottomans above!
They serve a purpose
and add such a unique look to the space.
7. Savvy Storage Solutions
Many ottomans open up
so that you can store whatever you wish inside!
The possibilities are endless
when it comes to ottoman storage.
You can store files,
like in the ottoman above,
Or you can store blankets.
Some people choose this stylish option to store their shoes,
others use it to store books
or even drinks!

The ottomans at Rugknots are 100% handmade, out of real rugs!
