Many people who buy ottomans today look for ones with storage as well as trays. Storage functionality is an asset in compact living spaces. You can store anything from blankets, magazines, plates, or any other items that you do not need lying around all the time. When I was living in a dorm, I had an ottoman with 2 units. I used one storage cube to put my blanket, and the other for books. It was very convenient.
Ottomans are armless, upholstered seats or benches. They are available with a solid base or with decorative legs. Ottomans are most often used as a footstool, but they have other uses as well. Some ottomans are made hollow to provide room for storage, a feature that is particularly useful in small homes and apartments, where storage room are always welcome. Ottomans are available individually, as a component of sectional seating, or as part of an easy chair, sofa or loveseat set.
They can be upholstered in childfriendly fabrics, and can offer them a playing surface when they are sitting on the floor. They can be used to sit in front of the TV with a games controller and used as a hurdle in the hall for racing, or as a horse when riding. These are just 7 uses for an ottoman in a normal household, although you can likely think of more. It is an extremely underrated and versatile item of home furniture that most households do not even own. Those that have taken the step to acquire one can no longer do without it.
