A storage ottoman or blanket box can add so much extra storage space to a bedroom and, when placed at the end of a bed, often will not dominate the space or even take up that much room. The added benefit of having a wide and comfortable bench seat can’t be overstated either.
Now getting an ottoman to match your existing bed can be challenging and, although often not that important, can be a desirable attribute nonetheless.
There are a few ranges which provide the option of a matching bed and ottoman and these are some of the best examples.
