I recently shared pictures of our master bedroom and the master bedroom sitting area. But do you know what used to keep my room cluttered? Books! They were everywhere. I read a couple of books at a time, and if I really love the book, I won’t get rid of it. It becomes like a reference book, or I may even want to re-read it. Using ottomans to store books in the bedroom is a great way to keep books close, but out of sight.
Sure, I like pretty books displayed throughout the house. I like to surround myself with books. If you are a book lover, I think you understand. I just don’t want them in piles all over my bedroom, which is a space that I like to relax in.
I found this ottoman at Target earlier this year and I was able to store almost 100 books! I actually need to go through these and give some away, but I wanted to test the ottoman’s capacity.
There are different kinds of ottomans, but storage ottomans are my favorite since they perform double-duty!
I still keep a few books on my nightstand, but now I can see my nightstand.
Do you have ottomans in your home? What do you store in them? Books, Blankets, Games or are they a catch-all when the mother-in-law is on her way (‘cuz that’s a good idea too)?
Until next time!
