My wife and I love doing Super Bowl Sunday. On that day we'll have about 40 people over our home to watch the game. What makes the night comfortable for most of the invites is the Ottomans because they can use as alternative seating. My wife loves ottomans. She will use any opportunity to pick herself an ottoman. In our home we have about eight Ottomans. Ottomans are a great way of providing alternative seating.
I'm a musician by trade. The problem that I run into is storing all the sheet music and CD's, not to mention all the gadgets I used. I use an ottoman for a piano bench which stores all my music. If it was not for the Ottoman my home would be in disarray and you know my wife would not like that. Thank God for the Ottoman. Ottomans are great for storage.
After a long day, there is nothing like finding a place where you can put your feet up. Whether you want to take a nap or read a book, Watch TV or simply listen to music, the ottoman can assist you with this. It becomes a great stress reliever.
Ottomans are very sturdy. We use our ottomans as coffee tables all the time. But you can put magazines and sometimes books on top of them. My family (in particular the kids) have use the ottomans to dine while watching TV. They are not just good for extra seating but also as a table.
While we can use the ottoman for a variety of reasons (seating, foot rest, storage. Table) they also help with the decor in a room. Ottomans can be use to color scheme a room, adding vitality to a space. Ottomans have the tendency to attract attention when placed in a proper area.
Kids love them-
My kids love them because they can be used as seating to watch TV, or play with their PlayStation and other gaming devices. They would also use them to play horse racing. If a child was to fall from them, it is illegally that they would be harmed. It's also good for storing toys or other knick knacks. There are different types of upholstery that you can choose that best fit your needs, depending on the type of environment you plan to use you it in; in particular whether you plan to use them indoors or outdoors.
