If you’re still just using your ottoman, bench seat or blanket box as a footrest or for the end of your bed, you’re missing out on some practical and stylish interior decorating ideas in your home. Our expert decorators have compiled some of the best and most beautiful decorating tips using benches, ottomans, and blanket boxes to inspire you.
Furnish Your Walk-in Closet
Place a sleek upholstered bench or ottoman in your walk-in closet to lay out your clothes or to sit on while you are trying on your shoes.
What can you do for walk-in closets where space is an issue? A natural linen blanket box will serve as seating, extra storage, and a beautiful furniture piece. Opt for white or light colours for a classic look and understated luxury feel.
Replace Your Coffee Table
If you already have side tables flanking your couch, then you can go for a statement furniture piece as your coffee table. Use a linen ottoman for a luxe look or go for a tufted blanket box to sneak in some storage. Don’t forget to accentuate with a luxurious wool and angora throw!
Seating for Hallways and Mudrooms
Sometimes, you just need something to sit on in your entrance, under a window in your living room or in a hallway. Use a plush bed ottoman – as an instant decorating makeover and something functional to sit on as you’re getting ready to go outside or for when you’re removing your shoes!
