A couple of years ago we got rid of our coffee table. It was glass and metal and pretty much a hazard for babies and toddlers. We are in need of a place in front of the couch to put our feet up and store a few blankets etc and lets not forget, it needs look good! Thus begins the quest for the perfect and affordable storage ottoman.
Nice stylish storage ottomans are everywhere but add the constraint of reasonable price – thats where life gets a little harder. Here are a few affordable storage ottomans under $300 that caught my eye. Most of them are under $175!

The simple and affordable storage ottomans
These three storage ottomans are very similar in design. First is a tufted linen fabric bench and the second is a faux leather tufted storage bench If you would like to add some interest you can always get one with a nail head trim. All of these are available in multiple colors! With kids around and lots of wear and tear, its better to have something that can withstand spills and at under $175 the faux leather is a great cheap option.
The patterned yet simple storage ottomansIf you are more into patterns and color, there are simple patterns like the chevron or the more complex quarterfoil lattice design, both available in many different color options. There is even an option for more intricate patterns if you like.
Affordable storage ottomans with lots of functionality
Here is one I really love! The Brentwood Storage Ottoman is plain and simple to look at but has a lot more functionality with reversible tray tops! I just wish it came in more colors.
If you are more into dark leather storage ottomans, here are some wonderful and functional options –
I love the functionality of option #8 with its 3 compartments. Option #9 is even better with the flippable lids/trays. Option # 10 is awesome if you need just a little bit of storage in the drawer. All of these are under $250! The last two however are pretty huge and won’t work in my living room. Also, I am looking for something more bright and cheerful.
Small and affordable storage ottomans –
I also came across these smaller storage ottomans – some simple, some whimsical… they are too small for my purpose but I wanted to share them with you because some of them are simply adorable and all priced between $120 to $250.
And if those were not cute enough for you how about this 2-in-1 Ottoman below which has a stool stored inside. The price is going to blow your mind! I think I will be getting one of these for the kids playroom soon! I love the green one.
I leave you with my favorite so far in terms of design and functionality – The Round Tufted Storage Ottoman with Tray & Shelf – it is just a slightly over $300 but is so totally worth it. I love the round shape and it has a flippable top that converts into a tray! Now I only wish it came in more colors…
