Looking for a stylish, multipurpose piece of furniture? The storage ottoman is a great place to kick up your feet, sit or pop down a tray of goodies at parties, all while storing extra blankets, shoes, games or other gear you don’t want floating around your space. Storage ottomans come in extra handy in small apartments, playrooms and family rooms—anywhere there’s a space and stuff crunch happening.

What to Consider

Storage ottomans come in many styles, shapes and sizes. Keep the following in mind and we think you’ll be happy with your purchase!

Size: Ottomans come as small cubes, capacious benches, rounds of all sizes and big squares. The bigger they are, the more likely they are to double as coffee tables. Smaller ottomans work as chairs or side trays in a pinch.

Style: Ottomans are going to attract a lot of attention, so think carefully about the rest of your home’s design—modern, farmhouse, rustic, etc.—before buying.

Material: Do you want a tufted button design? Leather? Velvet? Something else? There’s something for everyone. If your storage ottoman doubles as a coffee table, you’ll want a fabric that is easier to clean in case of spills.

How We Selected

We reviewed hundreds of ottomans, keeping all of the various design and storage needs in mind. We also consulted expert reviews, and analyzed thousands of consumer reviews to find the best ottomans for every need and budget. Get ready to stow your stuff in style!
