What is great about ottomans & footrests is the fact that there are a wide variety of options to choose from, which makes it easy to find just the right one to match that chair of yours. For example, maybe you have an Adirondack chair that you want a footrest for. Well, you can find an ottoman that has that same type of sloping style with bigger slats. Or, maybe you just have a rocking chair that you want an ottoman for. Then, a fantastic option for that would be an ottoman that also rocks back and forth. There are a lot of other choices available too.
It has changed a lot from these times of course, and is today regarded as an optional extra in most modern homes. However, it has its uses, and in some cases is an essential item of furniture. Here are some of the uses of the storage ottoman in the modern home: a fusion of the ancient and the modern if you like.
A storage ottoman can be used in the bedroom as a seat to help when dressing and also as a storage unit for items such as sheets and pillow cases - and even for spare pillows. They can sit 2-3 ft high, the height offering a considerable amount of storage space. When used in this way, they are virtually large upholstered boxes, with the lid padded to provide comfortable seating.
Ottomans can come in any material, but wood is the most generally preferred by most homemakers. This is because wood is durable and it is also easy to design as far as manufacturers of this type of furniture are concerned. This wood can be any variety, from maple, mahogany, walnut to wicker. If you're planning to place these pieces indoor, wood is a good material to have. Choices of wood ottomans range from hardwood to engineered wood to wood laminates. Hardwood is the most expensive but it is also very durable. Engineered wood is less expensive than hardwood but it is usually more durable because it is designed to withstand natural elements which can cause damage to natural wood. Wood laminates are made to mimic the effect of wood and are less durable, but they are most cost-efficient compared to any other wood type.
It can also be used for storage, such as for storing archived files that are not yet digital. It can be used for items for disposal, and you can clean it out every week - anything you want. A large upholstered box with a lid has many potential uses!
