Use For The Handy Living Brand

The Handy Living brand is most suited for people who are looking for the best value for the money. The quality and build are great, and you can use the Ottoman for many different purposes.

Using it as a bed

The width of the bed is a little narrower than a twin-sized bed at 27 inches so it is best suited for people who don’t move around much when they are sleeping.

However, it is the perfect furniture for when you have guests over and need a place for them to crash.

It comes with a 2 3/4 inch cushion, so it does feel comfortable and a lot better than sleeping on a couch or the floor, but I wouldn’t suggest this to replace a full bed if you are looking for maximum comfort and freedom of movement.

Using it as a footrest

It is a little shorter than a sofa recliner or a chair, so it’s perfect for using it as a footrest. The top part is cushion so your heels will feel comfortable and cozy.

It weighs about 40 pounds so you can move it around your home when you need to, but be careful not to scatch any of your floor surface.

Using it as a coffee table

While it is big enough to be used as a coffee-table, you still have to be careful and mindful of any mugs or bowls you put on there. The cushion and the padding can make weight shift around the Ottoman more easily so it’s easier to spill something on it.

You can however use it as a table for putting down snacks, treats, or any other hard objects.

Using it as a stool

There is more than enough room to use it as a stool or a chair. It is a little short compared with traditional chairs, but as a stool it will work.

Using it as a decoration

When you are not using it as a guest sleeper bed, you can fold it up within minutes and use the cover to make it fit into your living room area. It really compliments the living room when placed in the middle of the living room rug, couch, sofa, and TV.

Can You Use It As A Storage?

No. It does not have a storage unit.

Matching The Colors

Here are some tips for matching the colors when you buy Handy Made Folding Ottomans.

Carribean Blue

The carribean blue color brings peace and a sense of calmness. It is best matched with other shades of blue, gray, or white. You want to have a few other pieces of furniture that are of a similar color for the best look.

Charcoal Gray

Charcoal gray is great for darker colored rooms. Dark gray or black usually bring a feel of modernity, cleanliness, and sharpness.

If you are giving your home contemporary, minimalist, or a modern feel, charcoal gray is the best color.

How to Clean The Handy Living Ottoman?

The cover can be easily removed and put in the washing machine for a good cleaning. Wash in cold water and let it air dry in order to prevent shrinkage!

You can also detach the mattress/memory foam and do some spot cleaning or dusting. If you even prefer, you can replace the 1″ mattress with a thicker custom one.
