How to Choose Seating for Your Sitting Area
There are several tips you can take advantage of when deciding and creating the ultimate sitting area in your bedroom. Just remember to be creative, and something as simple as a single chair and a small table can make a big difference.
First, take stock of how much space you have available, and remember not everybody has reasonable space for that full body chaise you have been eyeing. Ideal places include bay windows or a small balcony or porch, but you can also make do with just a corner that can be emptied of other cluttering furniture; you can even replace a nightstand with a chair if your bedroom is extra tight.
Create functionality by deciding how space will be most used, either for conversations with two chairs divided by a small table or as a reading nook that includes a throw blanket and several pillows. Remember that either way, your bed still takes center stage in the room, so make sure your seating compliments it in form, color, and materials.
Consider multiple seating areas if you have a large family who likes to visit you in the morning as you check your email. A desk space, combined with a small couch, can work wonders in your use of the space.
