Why A Wooden Ottoman Should Be Your Next Home Staple

It’s no secret that an ottoman can be a handy piece of furniture to have around the home. Whether it’s a key storage solution in your bedroom, or an extra seating option in the living room or even just a surface to rest your feet on after a long day, investing in a good ottoman gives you access to a flexible storage solution perfect for any room. Our wooden ottomans come in a wide range of finishes, sizes, styles and colours to suit your home – here’s why you should invest in one as your next home staple.

Wood Is Better For The Environment

Wooden furniture is some of the most environmentally friendly around, offering you a long-lasting piece that you can cherish without harming the environment. Wood is a renewable resource that, when planned correctly, can be harvested and replanted in a way that ensures sustainability. Some work needs to be done to ensure that selective and sensible harvesting practices are followed, but with responsibly-sourced wood, you can buy brand new pieces with extra peace of mind. Wood harvesting and manufacturing is also becoming a zero-waste industry, with long-lasting furniture and decorations that can be sold on again and again, and the remaining wood from a tree can be used for bark, fuel and more.

Ottomans Are Multi-Purpose

Any ottoman, whether it’s wooden, upholstered, plastic or something else entirely, is a great multi-purpose piece that offers storage, seating solutions, somewhere to rest your feet and can even act as a coffee table or side table. Wooden ottomans in particular are great for personalising with runners or blankets to create a softer look, or to be left free-standing as toy boxes, craft storage or even linen storage for bed sheets and blankets.

They Fit Any Room

So you bought an ottoman for your bedroom, but no longer need it in that particular space – move it! Ottomans can fit in with any room, whether that’s a living room, kids bedroom, home office, family room, media room and in some cases, even a bathroom. With the right treatments and care, an ottoman could make great towel or bathmat storage in a bathroom, offering easy access right when you need them. There’ll be no more forgetting a towel after a shower! 

Wood Can Easily Be Painted Or Treated

Wooden ottomans already come in a vast range of colours, finishes and styles but the good thing about wooden furniture is that, with a little preparation, it’s easy to paint or re-treat to match a chance in interior design. Whether you’re looking to modernise your home and want to paint it white or a stylish shade of grey, or you want a pop of colour in a newly decorated bedroom and are breaking out brighter tones, wooden ottomans can be painted and repainted to keep them looking fresh and brand new for longer.
