Coffee Table or Ottoman? Both! 12 Double Duty Hybrids to Consider — Annual Guide 2017

Here’s why I propose everyone have at least one cocktail ottoman in their lifetime (and why I should take my own advice): Every night, I sit down on my sofa and I put my feet up on my wood coffee table. It’s hard as a rock, and it certainly does not offer a comfy spot to cushion my heels which leads me to clear the table top to make room for a pillow so I can finally be comfortable. Just imagine if I were to instead buy a coffee table that is also an ottoman and therefore already has a plush, pillowy surface for me to kick back, relax, and rest my feet? And it can serve as additional seating when I need it to? Win-win. (Contrary to popular belief, your guests shouldn’t sit on your coffee table. But they can sit on your coffee table if it’s also an ottoman.) Here are a few top contenders if you’re in search of a cocktail ottoman like I am.

Confused About Furniture? Top Tips On Furniture Buying And Care

Shopping for furniture can be very intimidating, particularly for a novice. Without proper preparation, you will end up paying too much for the furniture you want. So, it’s important to know everything you can to avoid taking a loss. Keep reading to learn more.

If you are buying previously owned furniture, test the items out to make sure they are stable. Sometimes, older furniture appears to be in great shape when it actually is not. Dry rot and rust commonly occur on furniture that’s older.

Consider shopping at thrift stores. Perhaps you have not ever shopped at a thrift store, or at least not in a long time. You can actually find some great choices in furniture at these stores. Here and there they have a sofa or an armoire, even though you might find small pieces most of the time.

Consider one topped with tile if you eat with your family at the kitchen table. These tables make messes easy to clean, and are very easy to disinfect. There are many options available for this type of table, including bench seating or individual chairs, making them the perfect go-to table for busy families.

Neutral furniture items are the best type for your home. Neutral pieces can match more and be changed up easier. You will have more options as the years progress. Choose from a wide variety of neutral pieces of furniture to create the exact look you desire.

When shopping for furniture for your living room, look for neutral colors, especially tans, grey, or black. When you choose a color that is neutral, this allows you to easily change things up. That way, seasonal changes can be made inexpensively.

At some point in your furniture shopping, get offline and visit actual stores. It can make for great research, but there is nothing which compares to testing out the furniture you like. If it’s comfortable and how it really looks, you will be able to see.

When looking for furniture, don’t forget thrift stores. Often, you will find seemingly new items for pennies on the dollar. You can achieve a beautiful look without spending a lot of money, and you can take advantage of more choices, if you have an eye for style.

You can get some great deals on fantastic furniture, if you can find where the deals are hiding. Or, you can pay far more than necessary. Pay attention to the preceding ideas so that you do not spend too much. After all, you deserve the best furniture at the best prices.
