What is an Ottoman?

An ottoman is a versatile piece of furniture that can serve multiple purposes. Typically, it’s a padded seat without arms or a back, often used as a footstool or a low seat. Ottomans can also come with storage capabilities, making them a practical addition to any room.

Why Choose an Ottoman?

1. Versatility and Functionality

One of the main reasons ottomans are so popular is their versatility. Whether you need extra seating, a coffee table, or a storage solution, an ottoman can do it all. You can place a tray on top to use it as a table or remove the lid to store blankets, magazines, or toys.

2. Space-Saving Design

Living in a bustling city like Melbourne often means dealing with limited space. Ottomans can be a perfect solution for small apartments or homes. They provide extra seating without taking up much room and can easily be moved around as needed.

3. Style and Comfort

Ottomans come in various designs, colours, and materials, allowing you to find one that perfectly complements your decor. They add a cosy and inviting touch to any room, making your home feel more comfortable and stylish.

Choosing the Right Ottoman for Your Melbourne Home

Consider the Size

When selecting an ottoman, it’s essential to consider the size of your space. A large ottoman can become a focal point in a spacious living room, while a smaller one can be a subtle addition to a compact area.

Think About Functionality

Decide how you plan to use your ottoman. If you need additional storage, look for an ottoman with a hollow centre. If you want it to double as a coffee table, choose a sturdy model that can support a tray.

Match Your Decor

Choose an ottoman that complements your existing decor. Whether your style is modern, traditional, or eclectic, there’s an ottoman out there that will blend seamlessly with your furnishings.

Styling Tips for Your Ottoman

Use as a Coffee Table

Place a decorative tray on top of your ottoman to use it as a coffee table. You can style the tray with books, candles, and small plants to create an attractive and functional centrepiece.

Create a Cosy Reading Nook

Pair your ottoman with a comfortable chair and a soft throw to create a cosy reading nook. This setup not only provides a perfect spot for relaxation but also adds a warm and inviting touch to your home.

Add Extra Seating

During gatherings, an ottoman can provide additional seating for guests. Opt for a larger ottoman or a couple of smaller ones to ensure you have enough seating without cluttering your space.

Maintaining Your Ottoman

To keep your ottoman looking its best, regular maintenance is key. Here are some tips to ensure its longevity:

Regular Cleaning

Depending on the material, your ottoman might need regular dusting or vacuuming. For fabric ottomans, use a gentle upholstery cleaner to remove stains. For leather ottomans, a damp cloth and a mild soap solution usually do the trick.

Protect from Sunlight

Avoid placing your ottoman in direct sunlight, as this can cause the material to fade over time. If your ottoman is near a window, consider using curtains or blinds to protect it from excessive sun exposure.

Rotate Cushions

If your ottoman has removable cushions, rotate them regularly to ensure even wear. This will help maintain the shape and appearance of your ottoman over time.
