Gaming Ottomans - Rock Band Game Storage Ottoman Rockband and More
If you have a video gaming system like a Wii, Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 in your home them you will quickly come to realise just how many little (and not so little) extras you will end up buying in order to play the more interactive and fun games those console offer. Those accessories soon start to take up a lot of space which is when you can definitely start to benefit from some kind of storage solution.
Video game storage ottomans are ideal for this purpose. They are a multi-functional piece of furniture which easily doubles up as a coffee table, footrest or bench for extra seating whilst providing a nice hollow area under the padded lid in which to store your guitars, keyboard, drumsticks and all the other accessories which come along with these products.
Many are designed with straps and holders inside to maximize the storage space allowing you to strap a guitar or two under the lid for example leaving the rest of the space for other items.
Accessory creep is insidious and before you know it you've got a roomfull of the stuff cluttering up the corners and ultimately getting lost or damaged because there simply isn't anywhere safer to put them.
Games like Rockband, Guitar Hero and the new DJ Heroor Rocksmith are some of the worst offenders as, buy three or four of these titles and suddenly you've got a couple of guitars, a DJ turntable, microphone, drumkit and now a wireless keyboard too hanging about the place...all bulky and annoying to stow away effectively.
However, developers are not completely immune to the headache all these peripheral devices can cause parents or the rest of us adult gamers and hence, there are a number of video game accessory storage solutions which you can buy to declutter your home.
Game storage ottomans are one such solution which not only gives you a stylish piece of furniture you can use as a footstool, extra seating or temporary table but also will hold a lot of your gaming accessories or anything else you want out of the way like strategy guides and spare controllers.
