Other Uses of Ottoman other than a Foot Rest
Ottoman is specialty furniture that many people have in their homes and they think that it must only be used as a foot rest. Well, this is not true at all as there are a number of ways that you can put the ottoman to constructive use.
Coffee table or side table
You can easily turn ottoman into a nice coffee table by adding a solid piece of wood or plastic on top to provide a balanced surface besides keeping moisture away from the fabric. With this simple hack, you will have an improvised coffee table or side table that you can effectively use at any time.
Extra seat for the living room
Though some may be slightly shorter for this purpose, you can increase the sitting capacity of your living room by shoving a few pillows to the ottoman to provide more seats. In this manner, you don’t have to hide a few folding chairs under the bed which you pull out each time you want to increase capacity.
Ottoman as a baby changer
It is luxurious and pleasurable to have a true changing table but the fact is that you will find yourself changing diapers almost everywhere. While in the living room, you can keep a small box of diapers beneath the ottoman so that you have easy times when you have to change the diapers when you are on the living room. Besides, the elevated height of the furniture makes it easy for you to tend to your baby as compared to tending to them down from the floor.
Ottoman for storage
If you have an ottoman that opens at the top, you can use it to store items like blankets and pillows. In addition to this, you can also use it to store books and home stationery amongst other things.
