Consider the following factors when choosing an ottoman. You want to be sure that the one you pick perfectly suits your home, practical needs, and style.
Size - Length and width are important considerations when choosing an ottoman. Do measure your space first so that you know exactly which ottoman will fit perfectly in your room. Don’t worry if you don’t have an expansive room, a small storage ottoman will be perfect for your space.
Shape - Looking for a wow factor in your living room? A round leather ottoman could be exactly what you need. But if you prefer angular shapes, you might like an ottoman bench or a square ottoman. Squares and rectangles offer great space saving solutions because they fit snugly in corners or with L-shaped sofas.
Materials - While many people think of ottomans as leather pieces of upholstery, in truth they come in many different materials. Many people go for a cloth ottoman because of the wide range of styles and patterns available. When you choose an ottoman footstool, consider the style of your existing decor and go with something that will complement your space.
Color - Because there are so many great cloth ottomans, you’ll be able to find the color that perfectly suits your living room. And, of course, colored leather options are available too. A small ottoman often looks great in a punchy color like wine or fuchsia. Choose a living room ottoman in a bold color for a statement piece that instantly upgrades the look of your living room.
