As well as being a practical solution to modern-day living, ottomans and footstools are also this year’s rising trend.

Space-Saving Storage With Style - Ottomans & Footstools

So, if you’re looking for space-saving storage ideas and you don’t want to compromise on style, look no further! Make the most of your space with stylish storage options, which have the power to transform the feel and ambience of any room in your home. Join us for a journey into the world of storage stool design…

Creative storage has really come to the fore this year. Perhaps this is partly due to a year of lockdowns, where many of us have been forced to work from home. Combining our working space with our home environment has been a real challenge for most people, especially if you’ve been burdened with home-schooling. Whether you’re attempting to look good on a Zoom call or you yearn for more room space, tidying away clutter has become a big priority.

Below are five ways that footstools and ottomans are creating an impact this year:

  1. Bold wall colours
    This year’s trend for bold colour palettes can be offset by a neutral stool. Pale furniture and deep wall shades are all the rage in the design world. Or you could choose a stylish footstool in a vibrant shade as an accent colour to match your room furnishings. Designed in a vast range of rich colours and hues, there are infinite ways you can mix and match a storage stool to suit your preferred home décor scheme.

  2. Easy to use - hide kid’s toys
    Beneath the lid, which can double as an extra seat when needed, storage stools are the perfect space-saving solution. You can easily tidy away toys, books, games, stationery items or even makeup out of sight, leaving your room feeling clean and spacious. Whether you live in compact modern home or you’re just looking to maximise a larger space, a stylish ottoman or footstool can be a real game-changer.

  3. Layer textures
    Another key 2021 design trend is the concept of ‘texture’ within the home. From wallcoverings to furniture, adding layers of textures to your room can add depth, and this includes your storage options, too. Linen is a practical fabric that blends warmth with texture and is an ideal material for a contemporary storage ottoman. Or choose a stool design that features stitched patterns to create a sense of texture.

  4. Comfort and tradition
    The ottoman is a traditional end-of-bed bench that has featured in bedroom design for centuries. Whether you chose a traditional style with button detailing or a contemporary design with a striking frame, this piece of furniture has been designed to create a statement. Match your ottoman to your room style, bed linen and furnishings, and you will transform your bedroom as well as keeping clutter hidden.

  5. Low maintenance
    A storage stool is an easy piece of furniture to maintain. You can place it at the side of a room, well away from the usual ‘spillage zones’, keeping the stool safe from sticky fingers and drinks. Upholstered using quality fabrics and supported by materials such as tough rubberwood and stainless-steel, your stool will be durable and long-lasting, providing you with a practical storage option for years to come.

At the time of writing of this article, lockdown measures are still in full force and it’ll be sometime before we’re back to normality. In the meantime, being able to switch off at the end of each day is vital if we want to maintain our well-being, and no one can do that with clutter lying around. So, if you’re looking for space-saving storage ideas with style for your home, why not consider a beautifully designed ottoman or a stylish footstool?
