A round ottoman is great for a sectional with a wedge or rounded corners. With no corners it is easy to get around.

Ottoman coffee tables. Most well-made ottomans are solid enough to be used as coffee tables - and not just in an emergency! Many use their ottoman as a coffee table period! Your ottoman is usually lower in height than your chair or sofa and is perfect as a coffee table. Some ottomans have a shelf under the top that can be used to store magazines so apart from being upholstered they are more table-like than ottoman-like!

I love this yellow quilted piece. It's got a Mies Barcelona vibe brightened by vibrant color that's a fantastic fit with the white room and gorgeous view. This is a great example of how one low piece of furniture can add a whole new aesthetic dimension to a space.

A slab of marble granite or another solid surface creates a dramatic and minimalist aesthetic. Make sure to hand select your slab and discuss the best area to cut with your installer. Try to take advantage of veining that creates a focal point. Around $7.000 to $10.000 for the slab fabrication and installation. This facing is among the higher-priced ones.

So often TVs are installed far too high as people tend to place them where they look best from a standing position forgetting that they will actually be viewed while sitting down. Placing your TV at a proper low angle helps take your eyes off it the rest of the time especially if you tuck it under some shelves painted in a fun hue. Dark floors or a dark rug will help it visually sink away into the ground where it won’t be noticed until it’s TV time.

Putting a television and fireplace on the same wall requires a delicate balance. These two focal points need a precise plan for them to feel warm and welcoming instead of out of balance or out of scale. Be careful to consider the size of each when figuring out which layout works best for your home. Whether you choose to have them over and under or side by side some of these winning fireplace and television combinations could help you find a truly harmonious look.

An ottoman in the closet - what a great idea! This simple addition - which doesn't take up too much space in this admittedly huge walk-in - is so functional. Plus it gives the closet a dressing room feeling that gives whole new meaning to "shopping in your closet".

Kids love ottomans - and vice versa. Ottomans are child friendly - if a small child falls off an ottoman he or she is unlikely to come to any harm. They can be upholstered in child-friendly fabrics and can offer them a playing surface when they are sitting on the floor. They can be used to sit in front of the TV with a games controller and used as a hurdle in the hall for racing or as a horse when riding!

Cutouts in the rear of a media console do more than allow cords through. The openings also permit much-needed ventilation. Electronics get hot when in use and you'll want air to flow around them and vent outside the cabinet. This reduces the risk of fire and can lengthen the life of the components.
