An ottoman might seem like an afterthought, but choosing the right ottoman is just as important as choosing the right couch or armchair. Ottomans can tie the look of your living room together. They also give you a place to prop your feet up and relax after a long day. If you're entertaining a crowd, an ottoman can double as an extra seat or as a table for holding drinks and snacks. Some also feature built-in storage so you can hide away extra blankets, pillows, or board games.

Our ottoman buying guide will help you choose the ottoman type that best matches your lifestyle and decorative tastes.

Ottoman Sizing Tips

●        Height: Should be about 1 inch shorter than the seat on a chair or couch.

●        Width: Should be at least half of the size of a couch. If using smaller ottomans, you can combine two or more to get the appropriate width.

●        Depth: Depends on the size of the room. A deeper ottoman works best in a bigger room. If space is limited, a narrow ottoman will keep things from looking cluttered.
