Mila Avdotya Ottoman January 25th, 2018
Ottomans are often one of the most overlooked pieces of furniture in the home. We spend a great deal of time finding larger items like couches and beds but choosing an appropriate ottoman is often an afterthought. Whether you choose to make a large or small investment your space will feel more like home with one of these simple additions.

Modern media centers rather than full-height cabinets to enclose the TV often simply surround the TV with a wall of floating shelves to help visually distract from the screen while adding useful storage (which often would be filled with DVDs in the past but are more often just decorative in the age of streaming).

Your ottoman should complement the look of your room. If the room is more classic and old fashioned than a wooden ottoman will fit perfectly well. It's also available in lacquer finish or if you want to make a statement no one can go wrong with an elegant leather ottoman. For chic homeowners with a budget faux leather beds work just as fine and will still give you the comfort and flexibility of ottomans.

Let the fireplace float. By placing windows around the fireplace (and placing the metal chimney on the outside) there's little to block the light and view so the interior stays more open and bright. The fireplace seems to float in the wall rather than being anchored to one spot by a heavy masonry chimney.

Adjustable shelves make room for a variety of components. While most pieces have the same depth they won't always be the same height. Using furniture with fixed shelves means running the risk of having a component not fit or needing to stack on on top of the other potentially limiting its use and risking overheating.

Steel. Most areas require a specified width of a noncombustible material for a fireplace surround and hearth. (Check your local codes for details.) A steel facing certainly fits that requirement. A custom application that feels rustic and modern steel is a great look. From $5.000 to $8.000 for raw materials custom fabrication and installation.

Integrate your lighting. Home automation can help replicate that real cinema experience by adding those special touches such as lights that automatically dim when the film begins or LED step lighting that comes on when the film is paused for a bathroom break. Lights and film have always gone hand in hand — a smart host like a smart director should use lighting to create the perfect atmosphere for a film.

Keep the glass box glass. On the outside the metal chimney remains the vertical totem it has always been. But now the glass wall can span up over and in front of the chimney. There's no need to have a chimney that breaks up and separates the elevation into pieces.
