Im sure you can all relate who how important and needed storage is around the house. We seem to be always running out of it and so when Songmics offered a Ottoman for us to review, I straight away knew where it was going to go and what it was going to store.
I love ottomans, I think one of the best things about them is they don't shout out as obvious storage in a room. As you look around a room, you would think they looked more like furniture than storage and so your room looks neater and less cluttered. This piece of storage is totally hidden because of its stylish appearance.
The ottoman we were sent from Songmics is really nice. The box itself comes flat packed and you just pull it out into its shape and then place a material covered board in the bottom that holds it strong. You then place the lid on top and you have your ottoman. I loved that it was so easy to build and when it is up, it really does look strong, neat and good quality. You would think it was made from a thick strong wood it stands that strong.
I found the perfect spot for my ottoman straight away. In my bedroom in front of the window. My bedroom has a gold and silver colour scheme to it so the grey ottoman fitted in nicely. It fit perfectly in front of my window and although its a nice sized piece of storage, it didn't feel like it took up much room. Here it is sat proudly by my window where you can get an idea of the size of it but please refer to the second photograph to see a better picture of what the colour is.
The next thing I liked about this ottoman was the lid. It makes the ottoman turn into a seat with the soft cushion that is on top. Lily sat on it first and she said "its comfy". She is right and it is really nice and soft on top. Im not sure the amount of weight it can take but Lily loves to sit on it and look out the window. She is so happy that she can do it by herself now and doesn't have to be lifted up. I have sat on it a few times also and it seems to take my weight too. Though I also don't weigh much so that isn't much to go on.
The material that the ottoman is lined with is really nice and I was pleased with how good a quality material it was.
Last but not least is how much I could store inside. The answer is a lot. So far I have stored 5 towels in there and a bedding set. I am planning on putting a second bedding set in there and it would still have room left over. Measuring at a size of 76x x38 x38 it has a decent amount of room inside allowing for plenty of storage. Its not just perfect for the bedroom, it would be perfect for any child's playroom, this would be great for storing toys, books, blankets, you name it and i'm sure it can go inside.
For the amazing price of £23.99 you will not be disappointed with this ottoman. If I would have payed for this item myself I would have been really happy with the size and quality for the price. There are different choices of colours and you can head here to buy yourself your own ottoman now.
