Why Ottomans Are a Game-Changer

Ottomans are versatile pieces of furniture that can transform any room. From providing extra seating to serving as a stylish coffee table alternative, these multifunctional items are a favourite among interior designers. In Melbourne, where space can be a luxury, ottomans offer both practicality and aesthetic appeal, making them a perfect addition to any home.

The Versatility of Ottomans

Extra Seating

One of the primary functions of an ottoman is to provide additional seating. Unlike bulky chairs, ottomans can be easily moved around, making them ideal for when you have guests over. They can be tucked away when not in use, saving valuable floor space.

Coffee Table Substitute

Ottomans can double as coffee tables. By placing a tray on top, you can create a stable surface for drinks and snacks. This not only adds functionality but also a unique visual element to your living room.

Storage Solutions

Many ottomans come with built-in storage. This is particularly useful for those living in apartments or smaller homes in Melbourne, where maximizing space is crucial. You can store blankets, magazines, or even children’s toys, keeping your space tidy and clutter-free.


After a long day, there’s nothing better than putting your feet up. An ottoman provides the perfect place to rest your feet while you relax on the sofa. This small addition can significantly increase your comfort and enhance your living experience.

Choosing the Right Ottoman for Your Home

Size and Shape

When selecting an ottoman, consider the size and shape of your room. For larger spaces, a substantial, square ottoman can act as a focal point. In smaller rooms, a round or oval ottoman can make the space feel less cramped.

Material and Colour

Ottomans come in various materials and colours, from plush velvet to sleek leather. Choose a material that complements your existing furniture. In Melbourne, where the climate can vary, durable fabrics that are easy to clean are a smart choice.


Your ottoman should reflect your personal style and the overall theme of your home. Whether you prefer a modern, minimalist look or something more traditional, there’s an ottoman to match every aesthetic.

Incorporating Ottomans into Different Rooms

Living Room

In the living room, an ottoman can serve multiple purposes. Place it in front of the sofa as a footrest or use it as a coffee table. For added flair, choose a bold colour or patterned fabric to make it a statement piece.


In the bedroom, an ottoman can be placed at the foot of the bed. This not only adds a decorative touch but also provides a place to sit while you put on your shoes or lay out your clothes for the next day.


A small ottoman in the entryway can serve as a convenient spot to sit while putting on or taking off shoes. It also offers additional storage for hats, gloves, and other accessories.

Home Office

In a home office, an ottoman can be a great addition. Use it as a footrest under your desk or as extra seating for when you have visitors. Choose a design that complements your office décor to create a cohesive look.
