Ottoman furniture is a must-have in our homes, especially when it comes to living rooms. This piece of furniture can be placed anywhere in your home, as it provides functionality as well as style, and you’ll be sure to find an Ottoman that matches the decor of your living room. There are so many different types of ottomans to choose from, and luckily, there are also a lot of color schemes and styles to choose from as well. So here are some tips for choosing the right Ottoman for your home:
First of all, you have to decide whether you want an Ottoman that will match a color scheme or a color itself. There are some gorgeous designs available that match just about any color scheme you could possibly imagine. You can find black ottomans that match almost every shade of black imaginable (including dark shades of black such as midnight black & dark green). Or you could find an Ottoman with a solid color, but that is embellished with beautiful patterns and designs. Both of these would look absolutely amazing in a hallway or living room.
If you want an Ottoman for your living room, there are also a couple of things that you need to consider. A black sofa is obviously more versatile than a pure black sofa – so if you have a black sofa, you are going to need a black Ottoman, no matter what color the sofa is. If you don’t mind paying a little bit more for a black Ottoman, then go for it; you’ll be able to justify the extra cost in terms of function and style. But on the other hand, if you want a simple, sleek black sofa, then you’re probably better off going with a plain, black Ottoman.
Your Ottoman chair will also be a focal point in your room, so you need to consider what colors you are going to use in the rest of the room. You obviously don’t want a bright, vibrant color in your Ottoman, since this will tend to make the sofa blend into the background. Instead, choose a soft, warm color, such as cream or beige – think about fabrics that can complement your living room’s decor and add a little bit of character to the room as well. Remember, your Ottoman may become the main focal point of the room, so be sure that the rest of the design will compliment the Ottoman. For example, if your sofa is black, you don’t want to choose a floral print fabric for your drapes or curtain, since they will clash together, creating a look that is neither clean nor elegant.
As far as the Ottoman itself goes, you’ll definitely want to go with black. Black gives any room a sophisticated, refined look, so it’s a great choice for a modern home as well. However, if you’re planning on pairing black with a cream couch or beige walls and floors, then you might want to avoid darker colors and stick with whites, which will work great with most neutral-colored walls and floors in your home. If you have lighter colored walls and floors, however, you can get away with darker colors, as they will complement the room and bring out its best features.
In terms of the Ottoman itself, black is a popular color because it looks classy and stylish, but it’s not so hard to find in stores, unlike, say, a red or green sofa. It’s easy to pair black with other colors, such as white, to create a contemporary look, but you can also take other colors and apply them to your Ottoman. For example, you can use black and pink leather in your living room, or you can pair black and brown velvet for a more country look in your bedroom. Whatever color you decide on, you’ll definitely be satisfied with the result!
