Boho ottomans come in a wide range of colors, styles and materials. Consider the style of your room and choose an ottoman that complements it. If your room has a modern aesthetic, look for an ottoman with clean lines and a minimalist design. If your room has a more traditional feel, look for an ottoman with ornate details and a plush velvet or leather finish. Many boho ottomans have tassels, pompom edges or kilim fabric designs. You'll know when you see the perfect one for you as your heart will skip a beat!

Think about the function:

When selecting a bohemian ottoman, think about how you plan to use it. If you plan to use it as a coffee table, choose an ottoman with a flat top surface and consider one with storage space inside. If you plan to use it as extra seating, choose an ottoman with a sturdy frame and comfortable cushion.


Pay attention to the details:

Look for quality construction and details when selecting an ottoman. Check for sturdy frames, well-constructed cushions, and high-quality materials. Consider the legs of the ottoman and choose ones that will complement your decor.

Add some personality:

Boho ottomans come in a wide range of colors and patterns. Add some personality to your room by choosing an ottoman with a bold pattern or bright color. This will add a pop of color and interest to your space and can be used to tie in other colors in your room. You can also go for more neutral bohemian colors like white, tans, beiges and grays. This color scheme works great for more of a shabby chic or farmhouse look. 

Use them in multiples:

If you have a large room, consider using multiple boho footstool to create a cohesive look. Use them in a group as a coffee table, or scatter them throughout the room for extra seating. If you have a tiny home, obviously multiples may take up too much space, so carefully choose a design and material that really spruce up your small areas.


Keep it clean:

Keep your boho footstool clean and well-maintained to ensure it lasts for years to come. Vacuum it regularly, and spot clean any spills or stains as soon as they happen. Many modern ottomans are upholstered with fabric and should be cleaned carefully so as not to ruin the material.
