Use them as a coffee table: A table that sits lower than your couch, and is used to set and display items on beside the couch is referred to as a coffee table. Ottomans in recent years have become larger, and more versatile to serve as coffee tables as well. Display magazines or place your drink tray on them, ottomans can handle it all.

Decide how much room you have for yours. Ottomans dimensions are available in sizes as wide as a couch to small, square and petite sizes.

For example, a heavy clunky overstuffed comfortable couch paired with a dainty coffee table found in your grandmother’s attic is not the right scale. Pair an overstuffed couch with a large table instead. The two pieces, being of equal weight and size, will be more in scale with each other. It is best to pair the dainty coffee table with a smaller more delicate loveseat or settee. Scale is simply about the size and visual weight of objects in a room being comparable.

It should be no lower than 1-2 inches from the seat of your couch. The standard height for a table is 16-18 inches and pairs well with a typical sized couch. A higher sofa requires a taller table, one that is 20-21 inches in height. The taller table will also be more convenient if you entertain a lot, as it will be easier for guests to set down a glass or a plate.

Individual seats or ottoman benches that have casters or rollers beneath them make this type of seating ideal when entertaining. When not needed, tuck seating under the table, and the ottoman now serves a whole different function.

That is the best part about decorating, right? You can shop the high-end department stores, you can cruise the flea markets or wander the antique the dealers. Just remember to bring with you the measurements of the room, the space available in front of the sofa, the height of the sofa and images of other furnishings. These will help you to pick something that is to scale, matching in style and perfect for your room.

Old steamer trunks, cedar chests and ottomans are fabulous alternatives to the typical coffee table. Each option offers its own eclectic appeal. Ottomans for instance can be made of leather or beautiful fabrics that will add some additional visual interest and texture to the room. They can also serve as a place to put your feet up without concern for the tabletop. They will work well in any high traffic family room that gets a lot of use. Often trunks were the only way immigrants brought their lives from the old world to the new. If you are lucky, you may have inherited an old streamer trunk to use nostalgically in your family room creating an interesting conversation piece.

Whether it is remote controls, game controllers, movies, or children’s toys. Ottomans with a hinged top make the best storage that is handy and disguises itself beautifully. Ottomans with storage also work well in master bedrooms at the foot of the bed.
