The Benefits of Storage Ottomans

The functional aspects of storage ottomans are often overlooked when planning a decor.  Ottomans are a wonderful place to rest your feet.  They also can function well as a coffee table.  When you use a storage ottoman for these purposes, you get the added benefit of extra room to stow things out of sight.  They are perfect places to store blankets, pillows, games, knitting, magazines and more.  Storage ottomans are fantastic space saving ideas for small spaces.  They can provide a convenient spot to place things, while keeping them out of sight.  Don't forget about the usefulness of storage ottomans when making the next change to your decor.  Visit www.cheapchicdecor.com for more great ideas.

How To Get a Spacious Feel

In a small room, it is important to do everything possible to create a feeling of more space.  One thing you can do is to try to keep horizontal lines consistent.  Everything seems more spacious when the tops of doors, windows, shelves or cabinets line up.  This will draw the eye up and visually expand the space making it appear larger.  For more great ideas visit http://www.cheapchicdecor.com/.
