Ottomans are great pieces of furniture to have. Not only are they functional, but they can really add to the style of your room. Basically, an ottoman is a padded cushion on top of a wooden frame that is used for resting feet on. These can also be used for extra seating space when you are entertaining as well. With storage area and tray options, you will love the versatility of ottomans such as the ones we are reviewing here.

Shapes

There are basically three shapes of ottomans - round , square, and rectangular. Round ones can be smaller and can add depth to rooms that have too much square grid patterns in them. Square ottomans will supplement the look of any of your furniture. If you are too afraid to buy a long ottoman because of the bulk, consider buying two square ones that can be pushed together or used separately. This will help you break up the space visually. Rectangular ottomans are often used for storage and give you a large surface area in which to use.

Materials

I personally like getting leather ottomans because my young children spill on my furniture quite frequently and leather is easy to clean. They are often very soft and can look very classy as well. Fabric covered ottomans add some style to your room, but you will need to determine if it will coordinate or clash with your existing furniture. You can pick one with a bright color to bring the focus into the room, or even buy slipcovers for it. Rattan is great for both indoor and outdoor use because of its durability. Memory foam ottomans are great for those who have foot pain and need extra cushioning while using them. These are also very lightweight and easy to move around; many offer slipcovers as well.

Designs

I really like storage ottomans since things like board games, remote controls, blankets or magazines can be stored in them. Table and tray ottomans let you put your feet up, or have a solid space to place drinks and food. Ottoman trays can be removed and used as a tray in bed or for a laptop as well. Pillow top ottomans have elegant looks and are very affordable compared to some of the others. If you have a rocking chair or a glider, buying a glider ottoman will work very well with this type of furniture. Then there are sleeper ottomans which give you a handy bed, but won’t look like it when it’s not in use.

Ottoman Coffee Table for Home Use

Best Ottoman Coffee Table with Storage

This Coaster Storage Ottoman is one of the highest rated products on our list here. This piece of furniture is finished with button tufted accents in a dark brown, leather like material. It has bun legs in a dark brown finish as well. The top lifts up to give you storage inside. It weighs 54 pounds and measures 43 inches long, 22 inches wide and 18 inches high. This looks so nice in our living room and no one can even tell that it’s not real leather. Although it’s not very cushioned on the top, it works well for feet, or to use at the end of a bed so you can put shoes on in the morning. You should be aware that the lid does not feature hinges that keep the lid open but it does close softly so you won’t have to worry about fingers getting smashed. There is just a small amount of assembly required when you get it, but it’s not hard.

Ottoman Storage Bench 2013

Another popular choice is the Convenience Concepts Sheridan Storage Bench with 2 Side Ottomans. These pieces are covered in faux leather as well. Not only do you get a bench and footrests, but living room storage, and a coffee table. The top of the bench is cushioned well but can also be flipped over for a hard surfaced tray. I love that it comes with two cut out handles for easier handling. The two side ottomans will easily fit inside the bench if you need to store or transport them more easily. You can either get this in a black finish, or a dark espresso to better match your other furniture. The upholstery is finished with box stitching for a decorative touch. The bench measures 35 ¼ inches wide, 17 ¾ inches deep, and 17 ¾ inches high while weighing 37 pounds.

Top Rated Ottoman Coffee Table

You might also like the Dorel home Products Delaney Ottoman. This one has a very contemporary design that looks great in almost any home though. You can choose it in two colors; brown and black. This rectangle piece of furniture works well with almost any size couch or loveseat. It is made with a faux leather finish that isn’t quite as fine as the others we’ve discussed, but still looks very nice. There is storage inside as well if you choose to use it. I love that it features locking hinges so there is absolutely no worry of fingers getting caught, or the lid closing down on you while trying to access the storage area. This piece does not have legs; it sits flush on the floor, so if you have a high couch, you may want to find another one that is taller to fit your needs better. Overall though, I’ve been pretty happy with it. It measures 36 inches long, 20 inches deep and 15 inches high. It ends up being really lightweight around 22 pounds.

Best Storage Ottoman Table

This Storage Coffee Ottoman in dark brown is a nice option as well. It also has a contemporary look with a simple style. It has a cushioned top that has some accent stitching. It does also feature storage inside. I like the tapered wooden feet that help it sit higher and make it look nicer. The faux leather looks great and holds up almost just as well as real leather. It weighs 36.5 pounds and measures 28 inches wide, 28 inches deep and 15.75 inches high. For the price, this piece of furniture is a decent investment.

Leather Ottoman Coffee Table

For its versatility, I like the New Leather Ottoman Coffee Table. This cool piece of furniture houses 4 tray tops and storage all in one. I love being able to use one tray top while my husband and I put our feet on the other areas of the ottoman. This is made with real leather that looks very classy. It features 4 built in wooden feet floor protectors so you don’t need to worry about your hardwood floors as this thing gets pulled around while being used. It’s quite heavy at 77 pounds and the whole thing measures 34.5 inches long, 34.5 inches wide and 18.5 inches high. This has been a good ottoman for our busy family room; it is a bit on the cheaper side though but if you don’t mind, and you take care of it well, it should last you a good long while.

Ottoman Table Set 2013

This unique Southern Enterprises Inc. Nylo Table Set Ottoman might pique your interest as well. It features a 5 piece cocktail and ottoman set for your home. It is covered in dark brown faux leather with four individual stools. The table part of it will sit on top of each stool to give you a nice hard surface for entertaining with drinks, food, or games. Each stool nestles perfectly under the table. I like that the table piece mimics the faux leather trim of the rest of the piece, and the wood grain looks very nice. It measures 35 ¾ inches wide, 35 ¾ inches deep, and 18 inches high with the table being used. The storage inside is more than enough to keep our blankets in.

Ottoman for Home Use

I think my favorite here is the Garrett Coffee Table Ottoman. This gorgeous piece weighs 44 pounds and measure 35.5 inches long, 17.5 inches wide and 17.5 inches high. It can be used as one full sized rectangular ottoman, or you can take the two individual square ottomans out of it and use them as well. It comes in a dark brown color with light beige cushions on top. If you flip over the top of the large piece, you get use of a serving tray or coffee table. The storage inside is also very nice. Getting three ottomans with the use of a tray table for this price, is something you just can’t beat.

Open Shelf Ottoman Coffee Table

As a bit of a different choice, consider this Ottoman with Open Shelf. It comes in dark brown leather like material and features a storage open shelf on the bottom, with a cushioned button tufted top. It weighs 49 pounds and measures 48 inches long, 30 inches wide, and 19 ½ inches high. It looks like a coffee table, but functions as a footrest. There is no storage inside however.
