    "JP and Mike did an EXCELLENT job. They were punctual, polite, thorough, neat, and accomodating. If we were unhappy with anything, they sought to make us happy. In addition to doing the work we requested, they found additional problems, told us what they were, and then corrected those problems after we asked them to. We would be very happy to have them come back to do additional work in the future, when necessary."

    Looking to spice up the dining room or family room? Sick of the same old boring, ugly looking fold out chairs? Invest in ottomans! Ottomans are a great accessory because they not only make an elegant alternative to chairs, but can easily be turned into a small coffee table, and can store things inside of them. Looking for a place to buy them at a great price? Check out Target! Here are some tips and advice on how to buy the right ottoman and how to get the most use out of them:

    If you don't have a lot of money to spend on furniture, you can always choose amongst a few modest pieces of furniture and use them creatively to furnish your house. One such inexpensive, stylish and multipurpose piece of furniture is an ottoman. Use an upholstered ottoman to decorate your room and making style statements shouldn't be much of a problem for you. An ottoman need not necessarily be used just as a comfortable footrest. Here are a few tips on various ways to use upholstered ottomans:
    • Place a pair of ottomans in front of the fireplace and you will have a comfortable reading area.
    • Having ottomans means extra seating place when you have a lot of guests.
    • A firm upholstered ottoman can be used as a coffee table. This is a great idea for home with small children, as the ottoman does not have sharp corners that can hurt children.
    • Choose an ottoman that matches the chair you relax in and right there have a footrest. Round ottomans really do make for comfortable footrests.
    • Ottomans that come with storage space can be used in bathrooms or in walk-in-closets to store laundry. You can use it to sit and to store at the same time. Storage ottomans can be used for keeping laundry or anything else required in the bathrooms. Most storage ottomans are lined inside.
    • Ottomans come in different shapes and sizes. Select one according to your need. Depending on how you want to use the ottoman, choose the right style.
