Is there anything better than kicking your feet up at the end of a long day? We don’t think so! Relaxing on a comfortable sofa or in your favourite chair is a great way to unwind, and it’s even better when you have a comfy place to rest your feet. Ottomans have seen a big increase in popularity in recent years, and for good reason.

An ottomanis an extremely versatile piece and does more than provide a comfortable place to prop your feet up. It enhances your home’s overall style and adds a touch of class and sophistication to any space. Depending on which ottomanyou choose, it can also provide additional storage space or double as a coffee table. Here are just a few reasons why you should buy an ottomanto add to your home décor.

We so often overlook the ottomanwhen decorating – yet for the savvy and stylish (like you!) – the ottoman can make a huge decor impact. What’s even better is that because it’s smaller, it’s typically less expensive and a great place to experiment. Perhaps try something adventurous in fabric and colour – what may be garish on a large furniture piece may be spectacular on an ottoman.

The ottomanis best known as a foot rest, but it can be so much more. It’s a wonderful substitute for a chair or loveseat in your living room – go large and luxurious.  It can also act as a coffee table – choose something sturdier with a firmer top, perhaps in leather. (Be sure it’s the correct height to work comfortably with your couch). The ottomanalso makes a perfect hall seat to put shoes on or as a bedroom bench; it’s a lovely addition at the base of your bed.
