What Room Does An Ottoman Go In?

The Versatility of the Ottoman An ottoman (also known as a tuffet, hassock, footstool, pouf or pouffe) is defined as a “deeply upholstered seat of any shape, with or without a back” and, considering the name, unsurprisingly originates from the Ottoman Empire. The ottoman furniture piece was introduced to Europe in the late 19th century where it became a central domestic furniture often piled with cushions. Even then, the many uses of it ranged from as a foot stool, to a bedroom lounger, to a major seating component – sometimes with ottoman seating wrapping around the entire circumference of a room. The main appeal of them is that they provide comfortable, unobtrusive seating whilst also doubling as a useful storage compartment. … Continue reading

Imaginative Kids Bedroom Ideas for Imaginative Kids

It’s important to remember that a child’s bedroom usually always serves as a playroom too. We can tidy the room and decorate it in preparation for their teenage era, years ahead of them actually getting to that age, in hopes that we are “future-proofing” the space to save time and money later on. But the likelihood is that your young child isn’t going to appreciate the sentiment. And will most likely complain that the room is still too “childish” when they hit a certain age anyway. Children need a space to call their own, where they can let their imagination run wild and keep their mind and body active. When presented with a bland bedroom that replicates the dull decor of … Continue reading

How high is your bed, and how high should it be?

It’s easy to forget sometimes about the height of a bed when considering what type of bed to buy. We consider the size of the bed, the placement, the surrounding bedroom furniture, but sometimes it’s only when we have the new bed placed in our bedroom that something just feels a little “off”. We might get out of bed in the morning and the floor feels as if it’s a mile away or your feet might touch your bedroom rug a little earlier than anticipated. Or we might just look at the rest of the bedroom furniture and realise that the heights are all off balance; the bedside table is far too high for the bed! The most common height … Continue reading
